Hairs, like teeth, need regular cleaning, adopt lighter shades when bleached, and require two years in corrective braces to straighten. Control wiry beasts with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a wash, cut, and style at James Deagan Salon in Dobbs Ferry (a $65 value).
Named Westchester Magazine's top Scalp-Tingling Experience in 2010, James Deagan Salon harnesses its stylists' beautifying experience to style hair and relaxingly sedate the head that holds it. While inside the intimate, boutique-like salon, follicles will have their forked ends fashionably severed to promote healthy hair growth and to put under pillows for the split-end fairy. Before the snip fest, hairologists will work with clients sitting in front of large, introspective mirrors to decide how to style manes in a way that most attractively frames faces. After a thorough wash, cut, and style, the approximately one-hour process wraps up by drying locks with the warmth of a blow dryer or the centripetal airflow of 150 chair spins.
