Wild hair can damage career prospects by making one seem overly informal or incapable of fitting into the novelty sombrero worn during mergers. Don the vestiges of authority with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get a salon package with a master stylist at Gio Studio Salon (a $160 value). The package includes the following:
- A haircut (a $90 value)
- A blow-dry (a $50 value)
- A deep-conditioning treatment (a $20 value)<p>
Giovanny Jorge, Gio Studio Salon’s chief shearer and namesake, funnels a childhood spent under the wing of her renowned hairdresser mother into mentoring master stylists, each armed with at least 20 years of experience. Tress wranglers draw upon past lives as gleaming curls to cater to clients’ whims in a complimentary consultation designed to pin down style preferences. Eco-friendly products permeate tendrils, and stylists guide scissors on smooth journeys through hair. As a deep-conditioning treatment revives frazzled strands, gentle infusions of light drip from the salon’s wall sconces across hardwood floors and a row of plush ebony styling chairs. A blow-dryer casts soothing warmth across newly sculpted locks and seals fresh ‘dos in place for afternoon struts or wrestling matches with convertibles.
Stylist Giovanny “Gio” Jorge uses three-dimensional color and angular crops to create catwalk-ready designer looks that celebrate and accentuate each client’s style. Her extensively trained staff members accomplish their artistic visions using eco-friendly products and carefully chosen chemical services such as Opti Smooth relaxing treatments. An expansive selection of hair-extension styles can also fill out clients’ coifs with natural-looking faux strands. After appointments, newly chopped locks shine in the glow of the salon’s sparkling chandeliers, backlit mirrors, and nuclear-powered blow-dryers.
