The earliest salons were informal gatherings where B-list philosophers gibbered away so they couldn't hear themselves dying of plague. Get an earful of the modern salon’s soothing hair-dryer purrs and scissor chop-chops instead with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of hair services at Leslie at the Strand in Mariemont.
In a relaxed, upscale atmosphere, Leslie at the Strand’s talented stylists convert overgrown skull forests into carefully landscaped tress lawns that wow pedestrians. Choose from the salon’s wide-ranging menu of cutting, coloring, and smoothing services, all of which harness the power of natural Bumble and bumble products. Have locks shaped into chicness with haircut (women's, $35–$65; men’s, $25–$55), or tint every strand for bold colorfication ($45–$65). Partial highlights can enliven locks previously only tinted with magic markers ($55–$90), while the Keratin treatment evicts rent-evading frizz tenants and calms coiffures ($300).
Leslie at the Strand amps up the glamour with chandeliers, honey-colored wood, and thoughtful touches, such as purse hooks under every cutting station. The sleek salon's styling floor floods with light from the tall, slender windows, lighting up every newly fashioned follicle in the same way your office’s florescent lights reflect off the glitter suit you wear to work.
