In the Old West, cowboys rode into town to have a glass of whiskey at the town saloon, to heckle the thieves in the stockades, and to exfoliate their rugged mugs with the sheriff's spurs. Saddle up for modern shaping up with today's Groupon: for $85, you get a haircut and full highlights at David Anthony Salon & Spa (up to a $170 value) in Willowbrook.
Within a calming atmosphere bounded by mauve, blue, and sepia walls, David Anthony Salon & Spa pampers and beautifies each of its clients. Lend tresses to the able scissorhands of a skilled stylist to fashion a new look. A full head of highlights in a chosen hue brightens strands before a final styling creates soft waves, flat-ironed locks, or the coveted “wind tunnel” look.
Child-toting patrons can take part in pampering services in worry-free ease while their bubbly offspring bounce around the children's playroom, which is peppered with tyke-themed entertainment such as toys and a stock ticker.
The Salon By David and William
Stylists have good reason to stick around The Salon By David and William. If they gain enough experience, they can move up the ranks from junior to senior to master stylist. It’s one way the salon retains its most promising talent, who together make up perhaps the most essential component in the salon’s ability to create contemporary looks. The stylists can attach extensions to make hair longer and fuller, or they can add a permanent wave that subtly appeals to surfers in landlocked countries. Elsewhere in the salon, beauty pros smooth out skin with waxing treatments and reduce the appearance of cellulite with toning body wraps, and massage therapists work through tension and alleviate chronic pain with Swedish or deep-tissue massages.
