What You'll Get
The earliest salons were informal gatherings where B-list philosophers gibbered away so they couldn't hear themselves dying of plague. Get an earful of the modern salon’s soothing hair-dryer purrs and scissor chop-chops instead with today's deal: for $25, you get $50 worth of beautifying services at Downtown Styles.
The skillful tress tamers at this boutique-style salon domesticate frizzies and unflattering shapes with the precision of a pointillist robot. The savvy staffers curtail split ends during haircuts for women ($45), prepping female noggin noodles for relaxing baths in rich, fresh sauce ($70 for all-over color). Foil highlights ($85) call attention to only the best strands circling a client's features, while smoothing and straightening protein treatments relax tendrils that are too tightly twirled around superfluous ears ($100/hour). Opt for multicolored tinsel extensions ($4/strand) for special events such as prom or the annual Christmas tree look-alike contest.
Clean white walls and muted slate tones complement the warm hardwood flooring in Downtown Styles' chic interior, made homey by the presence of two tiled fireplaces topped with portraits of America's favorite moms—Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Though not covered by this Groupon, Downtown Styles also stocks its digs with vegan and certified organic Surface products to aid clients' at-home care. The product line donates a portion of proceeds to World Vision charity, sponsoring underprivileged children around the world.
