Birds, a notoriously judgmental species, express their distaste for an unkempt human head in the only way a flying creature with a short digestive tract knows how. Today's Groupon removes the target from your scalp in time for spring with a stylish new haircut: for $50, men and women get $110 worth of services at Marianne Vera Salon in the Upper East Side. Your Groupon is good toward any combination of services but cannot be used for products or good-grade bribes.
Marianne Vera's lengthy list of follicle-primping services can reforge any head pedestal into a proudly displayed trophy. Get a basic shampoo and cut ($30+) or put your hairs in the hands of a senior stylist ($70+). Updos start at $60, and a trim-less shampoo and blow-dry starts at $30. For $10, men can get a beard trim, ladies can get a bang trim, and Cousin Its can snip enough from the bottom to expose toes. Those satisfied with their coif's length and style can shift hues with a variety of coloring services. A single-process tint starts at $60, and highlights start at $55. Rejuvenate and repair scraggly strands with a specialized treatment ($20+) such as a clear gloss or color preserver, or go big with a Brazilian straightening ($200+) or hair extensions ($800+). Prices vary based upon hair length, the extent of services, and the exchange rate between U.S. Dollars and Icelandic Kronur.
Toting a marble bust of oneself around all day is tiring and warrants the wrong kind of stares. Transforming a messy mop-top into a scissors-sculpted work of art provides a much more portable testament of you looking your best. Marianne Vera stylists are the ideal artists to commission for such a project. Both salon owners were trained by master stylists in the French apprenticeship tradition, where they learned to expertly wield scissors and tame temperamental tresses. The stylistic duo brought their knowledge and training, as well as the Parisian atmosphere they loved, back to the stateside salon from which they've been operating ever since. Call ahead to schedule your appointment at Marianne Vera Salon.
