Like puppies, heads of hair need to be pampered regularly or they’ll leave a mess on the couch and act up every time you roll down the car windows. Calm unruly coiffures with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get $100 worth of hair services at Grace Hair Salon.
Grace Hair Salon's founder, Thad Grace, trains each Grace stylist using A.P.T., an educational program he developed that focuses on methodology and technical prowess rather than mastering passé styles and passing style mastery. His artful and expert strand sculpturing is frequently featured on the TV show Better. Let his staff of skilled snippers put their hair-savvy to work by trimming your noodle nest ($25+ for men, $30+ for women). Or, change hair's color ($50+ for basic color) or stripes ($70+ for a color weave) as if it were made of chameleons. The salon offers blowouts ($20+), wedding and prom 'dos ($50+), and a special style for proms that turn into weddings.
To accompany the chic heads of hair coming to live in its chairs, Grace Hair Salon keeps a classy salon environment. There's bright art on the white walls, buttery white leather couches, high ceilings, and a palpable absence of sweaty ghosts. Call ahead to make an appointment.
