If hair could talk, it would have a mouth, transforming stylish head wraps into cruel mufflers and skinny headbands into orthodontia. Today's Groupon gives hair a voice without the expensive dental upkeep: for $55, you get $115 worth of hair services at Fifth Avenue Salon in Redwood City. Hair services include haircuts, coloring, treatments, styling, and facial waxing.
Fifth Avenue Salon's master stylist is a teacher for Matrix Color, and only the finest Matrix coloring products are used in the salon. Every haircut for women ($40) and men ($35) begins with a professional consultation, during which the stylist discusses possible styling and color options and interpretations of Inception. The salon's expert color artisans, meanwhile, can transform your scalp into a Technicolor musical with a full color service (starting at $75) or highlights (starting at $75 for partial and $100 for a full set). Color touch-ups start at $50. Fifth Avenue also offers conditioning ($15) and scalp ($25) treatments for customers who are tired of having their hair chewed on by horses. Waxing services such as upper lip ($15) and eyebrows ($18) make sure clients stop getting mistaken for the Swedish Chef.
Fifth Avenue Salon also offers wedding or prom hairdos (starting at $55), or a special 'do for proms that turn into weddings. Be sure to watch for hairstyle packages, which change monthly to constantly provide the most plausible excuse for a change of coif. Call ahead to book your appointment.
New clients only; 24-hour cancellation policy.
