What You'll Get
When mothers first sprinkle a baby’s bald head with water and fertilizers, they can only guess how the ensuing hair will grow. Control your wildly growing follicles with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of salon hair services at Primp and Tease Salon, located a few skips from the 7 train at Vernon/Jackson in Long Island City. This Groupon expires in three months.
Subtly decorated in hues of pale purple and the deepest black, Primp and Tease provides an upscale environment for head-based beautification. Trim split ends and remove the final vestiges of Gorgon snakes with a haircut and blow dry ($50 for women, $25 for men). Or simply smooth frayed head-threads with a blowout ($30 and up). Partial highlights ($60–$90, depending on length) mark the most important hairs, and coloring ($90 and up) gives the entire noodle nest a tonal transformation. Primp and Tease uses Wella hair-coloring products and the Bumble and bumble haircare line.
Sometimes life gets so hectic and the concerns of others become so primary in the mind-brain, we forget about our own needs. Just because linear time is an illusion doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take some for yourself, so grab today's Groupon and sidle up to Primp and Tease for more primping, less teasing.
