Before modern hair treatments, frizzy hair could only be smoothed by pressing it with an iron or by running it through the fingers of a jazz pianist. Achieve a noteworthy 'do with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of salon services at Designing Style, INC. in East Amherst.
A quintet of stylists wielding Aveda and OPI products team up to conceive modern coifs and opulent digits at Designing Style, INC. Mane wranglers steep strands in a luxurious shampoo before trimming head hedges into bird formations or chic new styles ($19 for men; $27 for women; additional $10 for very long or thick hair). Guests can further transform mops with subtle ribbons of color by choosing a dozen-foil highlight session ($43). Guests can also tame lip ($6) or brow ($9) fuzz with waxing services, or enlist nail technicians to decorate talons during a natural manicure ($16) or deluxe spa pedicure ($37) doled out atop a plush, gossiping ebony chair.
Rich violet walls surround the beautification haven, dotted with black chairs and styling stations adorned with fresh flora. Ivory manicure tables keep mitts aloft as phalange designers tend to fingers after patiently untangling knotted cat's cradle strings.
Designing Style, Inc.
Designing Style, Inc. is an Aveda salon, which means it bustles with experienced aestheticians and has a selection of plant-based Aveda products. This selection comes in handy during the salon's many services. For instance, its hairstylists reach for bottles of Aveda to augment trimmed and styled dos, and its aestheticians use them during their three signature facials and their Aveda stone therapy facial, which also relaxes guests with a mélange of warm and cold minerals and semiprecious stones. Furthermore, the salon's staff stages corporeal maintenance at nail care and waxing stations. While customers await their appointment, they can take in the salon’s inviting interior and the warmth of violet walls offset by a bright white trim and black-and-white prints.
