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 deal: for $20, you get $40 worth of any service from Mitsu Sato Hair Academy in Overland Park. All services are performed by supervised students.
After completing a style-sorcerer's apprenticeship at Vidal Sassoon Salon and accruing 32 years of globe-trotting experience, Mitsu Sato founded the Mitsu Sato Hair Academy to mold novice cosmetologists while offering clients the range of services expected from a full-service salon. Head to the academy and relax while a supervised cosmetology student re-tames or retools unwieldy locks, shocks, or strands of hair. Level-four students have more than 1,200 hours of experience under their belts and generally charge more for their services. A basic haircut (women's $15, $17 for level four; men's $11, $13 for level four) includes a shampoo and style, while a partial, 20-foil highlight ($32+, $38 for level four) leaves locks with a golden glow that could provide the game-winning illumination for your next black-light soccer match. Confidence-lacking cuticles can up their esteem with the academy's manicures ($11+) and pedicures ($15+), while the rejuvenating facial ($18+) and specialty facial ($23+) ready visages for any upcoming best-face face-offs.
Mitsu Sato's creative, inspired salon environment pushes students to creatively configure dermises, coiffures, and the body's more styleable appendages, so speak with your student stylist to hatch the perfect plan for polished pulchritude. Whether a new look is simply a welcome change or a physical alteration mandated by your job as a secret, hairstyle-shifting shopper, Mitsu Sato Hair Academy's aesthetic prodigies will calculate your cosmetic algorithm.
Appointments recommended, subject to availability. All services are performed by supervised students.
