The power of hair is most palpable in the tale of Rapunzel, who used her hair to hoist her love up to her tower, and then wove it into a sheet to hang-glide to safety. Live your own hair-based happily ever after with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a thermo-cut, Kérastase Nutri Thermique hair mask, scalp massage, and style (a $105 total value) at Ignite Hair & Beauty Lounge in Crosstown.
Ignite Hair & Beauty Lounge prides itself on delivering precision haircuts and styling as a Kérastase Paris exclusive salon. Each service begins with a consultation from a member of the style team to address areas of concern, typical care regimen, and what locks want to be when they grow up. Then, the thermo-cut snips strands with heated scissors, instantly sealing ends and closing the cutting surface, boasting added volume, bounce, and shine ($85). The Kérastase Nutri Thermique hair mask nourishes freshly trimmed tresses with a thermo-reactive polymer of glucose and proteins that, like prescription-grade lava, armours hair from moisture pillage. A scalp massage and style complete the tress triage before a complimentary makeup touch-up locks in the overall look. Today's Groupon may also be used as a $100 credit towards Japanese Bio-Ionic straightening ($250) or Great Lengths hair extensions (consultation required for pricing).

Owner and makeup artist Van is very selective. At Ignite Hair & Beauty Lounge, she helms a staff made up solely of senior stylists, whose work has been displayed on the pages of Cinder and mentioned in Fresh Vancouver magazine. Using products from Davines and Kérastase, these accomplished hair experts revitalize clients' locks with deep-conditioning treatments, add drama with on-trend ombre and hand-painted balayage colour, and protect hair with Thermo-Cuts that use heat to seal the ends of strands after snips. Close to Van's heart, professional makeup services include airbrush foundation and Youngblood mineral cosmetics, which brighten bridal faces or gussy up skin to amaze on Halloween or scare kids into doing their homework.
