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 Lolamax Salon, an Aveda establishment in Bloomington. Choose one of the following Groupons:
- For $39, you get a haircut, deep conditioning treatment, and a combination lip and brow, or a facial wax (up to a $90 value).
- For $150, you get a frizz-eliminating Brazilian Blowout treatment (a $300 value).
Grab the haircut package to give your tresses an appearance maintenance check before the factory-recommended three years or 70,000 miles. For the first act, hair is trimmed, clipped, snipped, or willed into your preferred shape, whether the desired outcome is a hairdo overhaul or a quick reshaping. The deep conditioning treatment infuses soothing and revitalizing products into the hair's roots, leaving each individual follicle feeling silky, pampered, and reeducated. Last, choose a combo brow and lip wax, or facial waxing to evict follicular stowaways before reemerging into the world as refreshed as the human torch in a blizzard.
Alternatively, opt for the Brazilian Blowout treatment to help unstrand strands and fizzle frizz. Similar to the system used to prepare a Snickers bar for interstellar travel, a Brazilian Blowout treatment coats each shaft of your hair in a nutrient-rich layer of protective protein goodness, eliminating frizz and smoothing cuticles. A Lolamax stylist will then blow-dry and flat-iron your locks, re-proteinize, and rinse and blow-dry again. Free of harsh chemicals, your new smooth and lovely radiance lasts up to 12 weeks and can be washed and dried without dulling damage. Best of all, you'll cut your blow-dry time in half and need less hair product to achieve total scalp Zen.

When Lolamax Salon’s stylists first lay eyes on new clients, they’re concerned with more than just the state of their hair. They scan each new face, searching for the cuts and styles that will best flatter those features. They also inquire about clients’ lifestyles—can they devote an hour to hair prep every morning, or do they need something that’s wash-and-wear? It’s not until stylists have their answers that they finally pick up their scissors and begin.
Hair appointments kick off with a relaxing scalp massage powered by Aveda shampoos and conditioners before stylists leads clients to the salon chair for a chic cut, a Goldwell color treatment, or a keratin smoothing treatment. Men can conceal grays or color over bald spots with Reshade hair color that lasts for up to eight weeks; women can sit back as their stylist weaves locks with Great Lengths hair extensions. Aside from styling hair, the Lolamax staff offers brow and lash tints and removes unwanted fuzz from the eyebrows and upper lip.
