When mothers first sprinkle a baby’s bald head with water and fertilizers, they can only guess how the ensuing hair will grow. Today’s Groupon lets clients take control of their own wildly growing follicles: for $25, you get $80 worth of salon services at Fluid Hair Salon, located on 81 Avenue.
Ranked by SEE magazine as one of the best hairstylists/salons of 2010, Fluid Hair Salon's stylists skillfully spruce up mop tops in a modern and vibrant environment. Structure skulls with a coif cut ($50+) or reestablish your relationship to the rainbow with a bold new colour ($90+) or conditioning hair treatment ($25+). Blushing zombie brides-to-be will want to try the special-day trial ($50+), and formal goers can rebel against gravity with an aerodynamic updo ($65+).
Industrial light fixtures illuminate painted portraits, vibrant blue walls, and hot-pink furnishings scattered throughout Fluid's contemporary space. The salon also moonlights as a photography studio for anyone needing to take last-minute glamour shots for the upcoming Star Trek gala.

When stylist Sarah Cameron suffered a personal tragedy, she allowed it to change her perspective for the better. After losing her father and subsequently questioning the legion of unknown chemicals people ingest on a daily basis, she set out to start a salon built upon holistic principles. That means Fluid Hair Salon only uses all-natural products and recyclable materials, which the staff sends to recycling centres via eco-friendly carrier pterodactyls. Visitors sashay among industrial light fixtures that spotlight deep-blue walls clad with modern art and magazine-cover wallpaper, and the waiting area showcases vintage furniture and retro floral patterns beside a rich, orange wall. Once clients are in salon chairs, experts with experience styling for music videos, photo shoots, and theatre impart helpful tips on ways to keep customers' newly coiffed manes looking sharp.
