Early humans believed that hair was actually the tentacles of an octopus living inside their skull—an amusingly quaint notion now that modern science has proven it's technically a cuttlefish. Indulge your inner invertebrate with today's Groupon: for $25, you get an AVEDA Botanical Express Conditioning Treatment (a $10 value) plus $50 worth of hair services and products (for a total value of $60) at Namaste Pure Design Salons, valid at either of their two locations downtown and in Capitol Hill.
Stylists will gift Groupon users with an included AVEDA Express botanical hair and scalp treatment to hydrate roots and soothe the skin to create a firm field for sturdy headvine growth. Then, the Namaste crownsmiths will fashion the perfect keratin circlet for each customer's needs with a variety of treatments ranging from a basic cut and styling ($25+) to full-foil coloring ($65+). If clients spend at least $25 on services, they may also use their remaining credit on the salon's complete line of AVEDA hair-care, skincare, and makeup products.

- I went in, without an appointment, and they took me in right away. The girl cutting my hair was really sweet and patient with me and my lack of opinion, really, on my hair. – Yvonne S., Yelp
- A neighborhood atmosphere, and a quaint, cozy salon, combined with great stylists makes this a must see. Quality cuts, reasonable prices and the Aveda products. How can you go wrong. – Cadwell12, CityVoter
Namaste Aveda Salons
Rick Van De Riet knows about devotion. At his salon, Namaste, every interaction between client and stylist is inspired by the teachings of Jagannath—the generous Hindu god of mercy who inspires love and devotion with his artistic abilities. This myth strikes a chord with Rick, who took the deity's message of compassion and creativity to heart when building his salon and hand selecting a staff of skilled and personable hairstylists.
Before he became a salon owner, Rick knew devotion in his career as a hairstylist, which he poured his time and talents into for 44 years before choosing to dedicate himself to training up-and-coming stylists. With patience and skill, Rick helped his pupils hone their skills until their aesthetic eyes were as razor-sharp as their favorite pair of shears. Now Namaste Aveda Salons ranks among Salon Today magazine's top 200 salons for growth and training programs.
Rick shares his dedication to skill and personal connection with his partner, Tommy Pernell. Together with a staff of hairstylists, they bring out each customer's best aesthetic attributes using products that respect the environment. Nearly all of salon's aestheticians come from Aveda training programs, where they learned to care for skin with gentle and effective Elemental Nature Aveda products.
