Birds are a perceptive species, only fluttering through open windows to help dress the most radiant of humans. Achieve a more pleasant aura with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $55 worth of salon services at Gila Rūt Aveda Salon on University Avenue in Hillcrest or on Birch Road in Chula Vista.
Gila Rūt, an Aveda-concept salon lauded by several industry publications, houses a savvy staff of expert and trainee stylists who use quality products to provide physically and mentally beautifying services. The Aveda hair spa treatment ($85, or $30 when added to haircut), also known as the damage-remedy renewal experience, pushes heads and follicles down a restorative road, stopping for aromatherapy and a therapeutic scalp massage along the way, and touch-up color ($50+) covers rogue grays or accidental greens. Prep faces with a wax ($15) and makeup application ($50), or properly express incredulity after a brow-enhancement wax ($22).
