If hair could talk, it would have a mouth, transforming stylish head wraps into cruel mufflers and skinny headbands into orthodontia. Be kind to expressive strands with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get $100 worth of salon services at Glitz Salons, which has locations in Rochester, Orion Township, Clarkston, and Lake Orion.
Each Glitz salon’s tight-knit team of stylists succors strands, skin, and nails to flatter women, men, and children. Prepare to immaculately ace a job interview or infiltrate a criminal ring of mannequins with a haircut and style for women ($44+) or men ($27). A basic manicure ($22) comforts distressed nails at the hands of a polishing quartermaster, and a full set of polymer-resin acrylic nails ($70) creates a more permanent solution to polish-shedding fingertips and nail-vandalizing pixies. Eyebrows, chins, or lips can cast off follicular interlopers or unwanted dryer lint with a quick wax ($15), then gear up for a special event with a makeup application ($45). Glitz staff members regularly venture beyond their warm, earth-toned environs to sponsor community events and raise funds for organizations such as the Make-a-Wish Foundation and Children’s Hospital of Detroit.
In 1989, Glitz Salons' founder decided to open a salon with a philosophy rooted in working with others to make clients feel good. Twenty years later, the staff at Glitz Salons still mans their stations and lives out that goal. When not performing services such as haircuts and waxing, the crew at Glitz Salons gives back to its community by helping local high schools put on prom fashion shows and hosting fundraising events. A cohesive, supportive unit, the salons' stylists and aestheticians receive continuous encouragement to express their own creativity and implement innovative ideas into their workday. This freedom allows customers to reap the benefits of a staff that thinks outside the box, paints the box, then folds it into a mesmerizing mobile sculpture.
