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, valid at two locations in Evansville or one in Henderson, Kentucky Fantastic Sams. Choose between the following options:
• For $12, you get a haircut and style ($17.95 value) and deep-conditioning treatment ($10.95 value; a $28.90 total value).
• For $30, you get a haircut and style ($17.95 value), partial highlights ($46 value), and a deep-conditioning treatment ($10.95 value; a $74.90 total value).
A full-service salon for the whole family, Fantastic Sams has hair-savvy staff shearers that tame frazzled flax into more maintainable styles. All haircuts start with a soothing shampoo using Fantastic Sams' signature line of products intended to promote hair health and rid the cranium of laser-tag-related stresses. Whether clients plan to consult the stylist about face-flattering looks or replicate the head-hide of a favorite state senator, scissors-wielders snip and style ($17.95) each lock to match the desired look. Deep-conditioning treatments ($10.95) reach into locks’ recesses, infusing follicles with moisture as they wrestle four-square balls from playground bullies. Like a good movie of a classic novel, partial highlights ($46) introduce a subtle new hue but maintain the essence of the original.
