What You'll Get
There's nothing more beautiful than the innocence of a child, unless that child is covered in pie filling. Outbeauty pie-gobbling youth with the help of today's Groupon: for $49, you get $125 worth of salon and spa services at Model Call Salon. Choose between either the Hillcrest or the La Jolla location.
Model Call Salon has been providing high-quality salon and spa services for more than 25 years. Reward your coif for its stellar head-warming skills with a stylish new 'do ($40+ for men's cuts, $65+ for women's cuts), or get some life painted into listless locks with a base color ($65+), partial highlights ($85+), or full highlights ($115+). For a subtler hair-related change, clients can have their eyebrows waxed ($18) to allow for well-groomed surprised reactions during the upcoming holiday season. Throw in a facial ($65+) for a fully finessed frontispiece. A bikini wax ($30) or Brazilian wax ($50) greatly decreases wind resistance during beach volleyball, and a full body sunless bronzing ($30+) gives you a sun-kissed look without having to sit through an awkward first date with said solar entity.
Clients who pass under the Hillcrest salon's wrought-iron awning or the simple, modern entryway at the La Jolla location are treated to friendly and personalized service from a knowledgeable staff. The elegant, leafy wall hangings accent the salon's sleek black chairs, exuding a calm and natural aura conducive to mane-styling and indulgent relaxation.
Model Call Salon won a 944 Platinum Award in 2008 and was mentioned by San Diego News Network and Confessions of a (Type) A. Yelpers give it a 4.5-star average rating, and six Insider Pagers give it a four-star average:
- The facial was one of the best I’ve had. She used products that were not harsh on the skin and had hands that worked magic. It was a very relaxing experience. – Confessions of a (Type) A
- Locals rave about this salon’s hairstylists and the Brazilian Blowout, a treatment that infuses hair with strengthening protein and keeps it tame for months at a time. In addition to their salon services, Model Call offers spa treatments — from basic massage and waxing to microdermabrasion and eyelash perming. – Jennifer Reed, San Diego News Network

About Model Call Salon
With its start in haircare more than a quarter-century ago, Model Call Salon continues to pamper clients with hair and beauty treatments that utilize brand-name products such as Number 4 Hair, Bumble & bumble, Unite. Each service in the salon or spa starts off with a one-on-one consultation where clients discuss what they want their hair to look like, their skin to feel like, or their eyebrows to furrow like. Hairstylists boast certifications beyond their years of hands-on experience and participate in continuing education to stay current in hair-design trends. When it comes to beauty services, aestheticians improve skin with customized treatments, microdermabrasion, and facials.
