Early humans believed hair was actually the tentacles of an octopus living inside their skull—an amusingly quaint notion now that modern science has proven it's technically a cuttlefish. Indulge your inner invertebrate with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of cut and color services from select stylists at id Salon in Wellesley.
Inside the cozy confines of id Salon, award-winning stylists offer big-city style amid a friendly, small-town atmosphere, earning kudos from Boston magazine in 2009. The salon’s mane tamers collaborate with each customer, determining objectives for hard-working hairdos and ensuring all visits result in lifestyle- and clown-nose-complementing coifs. Use today's Groupon toward services including cuts ($70+), single-process color treatments ($75+), and highlights applications ($75+). The salon keeps its elegant doors open Tuesday–Saturday, 9 a.m.–7 p.m., and offers lot parking for anyone arriving by car or bobsled.
A mere 12 months after Helen Mckenna opened id.Salon, it was voted Best New Salon by the Boston Globe ; four years later, the same publication gave it the honor of Best Salon - West. Chalk that up to the studied stylists, who craft cutting-edge 'dos designed to turn heads, and manicurist Galina Frishman, who has painted the nails of such stars as Jennifer Lawrence, Cameron Diaz, and Sandra Bullock. The space echoes the staff's aesthetic: it's all modern abstract art and minimalist design, a hip spot so encouraging of transformation that you might be tempted to dye the hair on your arm tattoo.
