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 Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of hair, waxing, and sugaring services at Estilo Salon.
Estilo Salon doles out chic cuts and peerless waxes, and its extensive service menu has drawn a host of dedicated customers. Ladies can scale back overgrown tresses with a woman's cut and style ($30–$40), and gentlemen can lower business partners’ arched eyebrows by shortening their mohawks ($18–$20). Lighten locks with a coloring treatment (up to $70), use highlights to single out vital strands for upcoming tests (up to $70), or choose both in a nearly two-hour process ($94).
Estilo's waxing and sugaring services keep eyebrows, upper lips, and chins hairless ($12 each for a wax, $15 each for a sugaring), and French bikini waxes help vacationers from Marseille feel at home ($35). Mahogany-toned walls, a draping rose curtain, and an eye-catching amber-and-chartreuse screen enhance Estilo Salon’s elegant ambience, reflecting trims and cuts in gilded frames that nod proudly after assessing stylists’ work.
