Cutting rugs is difficult without first cutting your ankle-length hair—which, coincidentally, makes for an excellent throw rug. Surprise friends with trimmed tresses and luxuriant floor-coverings with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 toward salon services at Pura Vida Color Studio, as well as a 20% discount on retail products.
Like the precise color formulas she mixes, master colorist and owner Raine Reggans combines laid-back vibes with more than 15 years of expertise to provide guests with a comfortable, hair-enhancing experience at Pura Vida Color Studio. Pura Vida's professional stylists incline their ear trumpets toward customer requests, eagerly engaging in tress-based dialectic that balances your auburn fantasies with their expert opinions. Colorists skillfully mix formulas in plain view of incredulous strands before painting hair with a basic roots treatment ($50+) or partial highlights ($65+). Pura Vida Color Studio also provides haircuts ($37+) and deep-conditioning treatments to lackluster locks ($20+), as well as facial waxing services ($15+). Your 20% discount can be applied toward the studio’s product lines, including Davines, an Italy-based brand focused on natural ingredients and sustainable energy practices.
Pura Vida’s Costa Rican-inspired décor, buoyed by the melodic hum of a bubbling fountain, imbues guests with a carefree vacation sensibility within the floodlit space of the salon’s downtown locale, allowing for the creation of beautiful coifs and the recovery of lost grooves.
Prices may vary due to hair length, density, condition, amount of colors used, techniques, and stylist.
Pura Vida Color Studio
The board-certified colorists at Pura Vida Color Studio strive to live up to their name—which intends to capture the essence of good vibes and relaxation—by using sustainable, earth-friendly Davines products. The Davines concept salon also specializes in flamboyage highlights, a spin on balayage that uses gently gripping mech strips to separate small sections of hair instead of using traditional foils. The technique produces natural-looking waves of color.
The salon's subdued decor turns eyes' focus toward vibrant tresses. Stylists can judge and calibrate colors in the abundant natural light from wide windows. The salon's neutral-colored walls echo the burble of the storefront fountain and the footfalls of the well-coiffed elves who live inside the potted plants.
