Like a garden, hair must be watered, trimmed, and meticulously groomed by scissor-handed sentinels so that birds won't nest in it. Protect personal beauty with today's Groupon: for $45, you get $90 worth of services at Encounters Salon and Day Spa in Overland Park.
Encounters Salon and Day Spa deploys skilled stylists to treacherous follicle zones where they combat frowziness and frizziness with a passel of customized services. Haircuts for men ($25–$45) or women ($32–$65) can breathe new life into old 'dos, and a single-process color ($46+) or a full head of highlights ($76+) update antiquated keratin camouflage. A deep-conditioning treatment ($15+) can protect newly colored follicles, and a straightening treatment ($85+) makes strands more attractive to protractors. Prior to handling head helmets, Encounters Salon and Day Spa's experienced stylists fulfill a rigorous nine-month training program, ensuring fingers are nimble enough to manipulate hair while blindfolded and scissor-skills are on par with a professional paper-snowflake maker.
Encounters Salon and Day Spa
At Encounters Salon and Day Spa, the floors and mirrors sparkle and the retail area is stocked with products from Aveda, Surface, and other high-end brands. The stylists—some of whom have been cutting, coloring, and conditioning hair for three decades—are friendly, smiling, and collaborative, and it's common to see several of them exchanging ideas about the cut of one client. Encounters carefully selects cosmetology-school graduates for its nine-month in-house training program, which is designed to help new stylists quickly grow their experience and clientele.
