Early humans believed hair was actually the tentacles of an octopus living inside their skulls—an amusingly quaint notion now that modern science has proven it's technically a cuttlefish. Indulge your inner invertebrate with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of salon services at Mak's Place in Alexandria.

For more than 15 years, owner Makda Kibour has presided over an artistic staff that boasts an aptitude for hair maintenance and fashions fetching looks and stunning styles elevated by an array of enticing extras. Snippists will consult with clients to forge proper beautifying services tailored to individuals, with cuts to frame faces, colors to highlight skin tones, or styles to complement shoulder-perched parrots.

Errant ends can be pared into place with a tailored cut for men ($40+), women ($60+), and children ($25–$35). Lock-polishing sessions begin with an aromatherapy scalp massage and relaxing shampoo to invigorate the senses and melt away scalp tension caused by bossy brushes and loudmouthed hats as happy hair-wearers are regaled with a choice of tea or coffee during downtime, as well as wine in the afternoon.

Aveda-trained color specialists tint tresses with a partial ($95+) or full-foil ($125+) coloring. A gentle cream wax ($15–$25) ensures that faces that normally sprout fuzz fields remain beautifully fallow; the wax treatments are followed with a soothing rosewater spritz.

Reviews

Eleven Yelpers give Mak's Place a three-star average:

  • The entire staff is so friendly and I love the peaceful atmosphere and relaxing waiting area. – Amy B., 6/15/10
  • The antique nightstands, eclectic furnishings, delicious hot tea, and silk chair pads lend a relaxing, vaguely exotic mood to the salon, while the recessed lighting and cute stylists keep it trendy. – Brianne C., 7/31/08
