A caged bird will continue to sing just as its plumage will continue to grow beyond the confines of its metal-working. Today's Groupon rejuvenates tired limbs and grooms unruly head-limbs with $65 worth of hair and body services plus a complimentary sensory experience from Phia Salon for $29. Unlock the wonder of your locks and restore your skin's splendor, or indulge a special Valentine who's allergic to chocolate flower-bears.
Phia Salon provides a cozy and welcoming salon experience free of highbrow pretensions and mid-brow punning. A cast of multi-talented stylists uses all-natural Aveda products for each of Phia’s hair services and ritualistic pampering practices for mani-pedis, facials, and body treatments. For hair that is tired and under-motivated, designer haircuts begin at $35 and partial highlights start at $55. Show toe affection and hand gladness with manicures and pedicures (starting at $30 and $45, respectively), or treat your sweet cheeks to the hydrated sheen of a mini facial (starting at $15).
While sensory experiences such as dumpster smells and icy wind gusts abound, Phia Salon offers an indulgent sensory experience (normally $8–$15) designed to help you unwind. Add a de-stressing hand and arm massage to your personal health day, or bring reprieve to your hat-weary head with a deeply soothing scalp and shoulder massage. Like a visit to the Caps and Candy Shoppe, your Phia expedition will leave you radiant, relaxed, and prepared for the oncoming tumult of Valentine's Day carolers.
- The Short North District is known for its artsy, hippie vibe. Phia Salon fits perfectly with the blend of shops and restaurants that line the streets. The stylists are all very open and friendly, and the salon itself is a small, little-known treasure. – Sara Bradley, Uweekly.com
- The conditioning options include a basic treatment and a variety of "botanical therapies" that leave hair smelling like fresh-picked flowers and herbs. Some are targeted to combat dry or flakey scalps, others help with damaged, prone-to-breakage hair. Glossing services that add dimension and shine are available as an add-on, and the scalp massage that comes with all of these services - and simultaneously works the product into hair even more - is a major perk. – Brittany Kress, Columbus Alive!
- I have had over 10 different cuts and color styles and I’ve loved them all! I can’t say enough about how nice and friendly everyone is. I feel they are leading the trend of what a salon should feel like and how people should be treated. Everytime I go, I leave feeling like I am appriceated [sic] and cared about. – Giska, Uweekly.com
In the midst of mirrors filled with smiling reflections, Phia Salon, an Aveda Lifestyle Salon in the Short North, and its sister salon Philosophi in Clintonville infuse hairs and pores with pure flower essences and plant-based botanical products. Five levels of talent are available to tackle every service, from an extensive list of cut and color services to hair extensions, waxing, and skin care. Each of their cut and color services is accompanied by a stress-relieving C.O.M.P. (Complimentary Optional Moment of Pampering) that ranges from an express mini facial to a soothing hand-and-arm massage. In order to ensure the satisfaction of customers, written quotes are provided before the services start.
Phia Salon extends Aveda's commitment to natural products and the environment to its own salon with eco-friendly business practices, such as constantly monitoring and recycling waste and using phosphate-free soaps. The salon’s eco-friendly paint on the walls, and the organic milk used in coffee and tea comes from local, grass-fed cattle who carpool to work. Phia Salon was also rated in the Top 200 Salons in America by Salon Today Magazine.
