What You'll Get
Hair is the vine of the head: it can be beautiful as it gets longer, but allowing it to grow untamed may anchor you to the nearest stationary object. Free yourself from the tresses that bind with today's Groupon: for $40, you get you $100 toward a cut, color, and styling at dearinger Hair Salon, featured in Marie Claire. This Groupon is good at either of dearinger's two locations on Market Street or on La Jolla Boulevard.
Minimalism is the guiding principle behind this streamlined salon, from the décor to its follicle philosophy. Overprocessing, overstyling, and overalls make up the trifecta of dearinger's style nemeses, which both locations combat by promoting hair health. Haircuts range from $43 with a level-one stylist to $130 for a cut from Mark Dearinger himself, who immediately ascended to lead stylist thanks to his coincidentally fitting last name. A blow dry and iron ($40) can add pizzazz to a new pompadour, and fashionistas and fugitive criminals alike can benefit from partial ($70+) or all over color ($90+) treatments. Dearinger's hydrate and illuminate treatment ($27) brightens cloudy coiffures with an essential oil elixir, and the nourish and repair treatment ($38) feeds skull serpents the most important meal of the day with egg-yolk oil and shea-buttered toast. Dearinger sends its philosophy of simplicity with each client who crawls out the door. Scissor scientists camp out in the nearby tree line to observe hair's natural behaviors, ensuring your cut's low-maintenance manageability in the wild.
Dearinger stylists may train exclusively in the art of either coloring or lopping locks, allowing them to perfect their craft with the extreme concentration of a juice cocktail. Call or email for an appointment.

About dearinger Hair Salon
Since 1992, dearinger Hair Salon's stylists have fought rampant overprocessing and overstyling by focusing on hair health and natural growth patterns. As stylists clip strands in low-maintenance haircuts or perform deep-conditioning treatments, they steer clear of damaging round brushes, curling irons, and hot rollers, ensuring that hair's volatile ends don't split or file for divorce. The salon's advanced training program helps stylists hone their cutting and coloring craft with the extreme concentration of a juice cocktail. The precise results of the extensive training have earned dearinger Hair Salon praise from Marie Claire, Hairstyle, and San Diego Magazine.
