Today's Groupon gets you a fabulous cut and style at the renowned Mizu Hair Salon's Park Avenue location. The Mizu Hair magicians have received tons of press for their great work in Boston and efforts in humanely removing bats from the bouffants of America's elderly in Dayton. The Daily Obsession's Carolyn calls Mizu her favorite Park Ave. Salon, and Dayton resident Nancy Lufton calls it "the only place I trust to remove my hair-bats in a way that doesn't involve barbed wire and ping pong paddles." If you're looking to color your hair, check out today's side deal: $60 for one-process hair color.
Your styling will include a personal consultation, shampoo massage, conditioning, and superb cut. Mizu's hair care specialists rub moist, aromatic shampoo and conditioner into your scalp, taking care to address tricky structural areas like the fontanel or "Devil's Gully." After scalp-prepping concludes, a stylist artfully and scientifically harmonizes the haircut with your unique coloring, bone structure, and style. Usually, treating yourself to one of the world's best salons is reserved for American television actor Patrick Duffy, but today's Groupon makes it affordable for everyone.
When you enter the fancy, bi-level venue, you're in for a one-of-a-kind salon experience, a concept conceived by Elan Sassoon (son of Vidal Sassoon) and the pros behind celeb favorite Bumble and bumble. UrbanDaddy.com describes Mizu as a sort of Apple store that also happens to employ stylists. Choose an iPod, video goggles, or a laptop for entertainment during your service.
- My hair has never looked so good. Vaughn (hair cut ) and Moran (color) are on the top of their game, as is everyone else at Mizu... peaceful and chic are the two words that come to mind. – jackie k., Yelp
- I think they use more natural products so my shampoo and condition left my hair shiny and bouncy. I got a great cut and my stylist gave me one of the best blowouts EVER. – Jennifer Y., Yelp
- I never felt better about the look any one else created for me and his attention is super personal. I now understand why people pay a lot of money to have hair styled. This place is worth it. – BetsyB, Citysearch
