While the salon at the Hôtel de Rambouillet may have housed the finest literary minds in 17th-century Paris, it also provided the most awful perms this side of the Seine. Today's Groupon showcases how far style has come since those Francophone faux pas. For $45, you get $100 worth of hair and skin services at Jon Richard Salon. The Cranston salon is owned and operated by two beautifying brothers who honed their skills in the finest Boston salons.
Your Groupon is good for any hair or skin service, so if a springtime spent spelunking in the caves of West Virginia has left your 'do shaggy and unkempt, whip it into regatta-ready shape with a cut ($35 and up) and single-process color (starting at $50). Becurled beauties will benefit from the "specializ" curly cut ($80) to turn twisted tresses into a more manageable mane, while the prom-prone lady can subject her strands to a professional up-do (starting at $40) or makeup application ($40 and up). The salon's selection of skin services will have delightful dermal effects on any arm, face, or pet shark, and with summer fast approaching, you may want to wax your arms ($25 for full arm), legs ($50 for full leg), and bikini area ($30) to reduce drag for a seasonal scuba dive. Or simply opt for a brow shaping ($12) and mini facial ($40) to achieve ultimate facial radiance.
Housed in a free-standing single-family house, the sleek salon exudes an uber-urban vibe complete with exposed brick pillars and gleaming white walls. Enjoy a day of pampering at the chic beauterie in preparation for your impending dissertation defense or day at the dentist's office. Call ahead for an appointment.

Jon Richard Salon
Richard grew up in Boston, launching his styling career in the city's salons as a precision haircutter and a Ouidad-certified stylist. His career took him all over as he worked for fashion shows, news stations, extreme-makeover shows, and movies. Eventually, though, he opened Jon Richard Salon and launched a line of styling products.
Today, inside his airy, white-walled salon, which has been written up in So Rhode Island magazine, he rallies his team with a call to defend clients from anything that hinders confidence and beauty. Stylists welcome guests to leather styling chairs for cuts, color services, and Yuko straightening treatments. They also stock Ouidad products enriched with proteins and vitamins and designed especially for curly hair and shag rugs with ringlets. Spa technicians reveal glowing skin with facials and microdermabrasion treatments and transform nails with pink-and-white polish or Shellac mani-pedis. Clients can also stop in to get their bodies beach ready with spray tans, body waxing, or Cry Baby semipermanent mascara, which stays put no matter how many hours they've been manning the dunk tank.
