Without regular trims, hair can grow to unmanageable lengths, tempting unoccupied grandmothers to knit the excess into an integrated tuque. Sidestep overzealous grammies with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a haircut and style (a $35 value) with your choice of deep conditioning (a $40 value) or color gloss (a $35 value) at Rain Salon Studios (up to a $75 total value). This deal is valid only for select stylists, so be sure to mention your Groupon when booking your appointment.
Rain Salon Studios' seasoned stylists renovate face drapes within the intimate confines of private, Venetian-inspired suites. Expert coiffeurs curtail unruly locks with a haircut, using strategically executed snips and vague threats of headband confinement. Newly abridged strands agilely submit to sleek styling according to present whims or trends. A color gloss service adds lustrous shine to dull tresses, warding off birds who are prospecting vacant tresses for nest-building. Alternately, soften strands with a Pureology heat-infused deep conditioning treatment, which protects hair from the damaging temperatures of blow-dryers, straighteners, or high-wattage reading lamps. A complimentary hand massage distracts hands from mussing new styles while waiting for color gloss or conditioning to silkify coarse tendrils.

In a space reminiscent of a chic Venetian boutique replete with a trickling waterfall, stylists tailor looks to each client. At Rain Salon Studios, however, the experience is about more than creating a fresh appearance. With quality products and individualized attention—independent hairdressers, aestheticians, and nail technicians work in their own studios—they curate relaxing respites while artfully completing makeovers with hairstyling, nailcare, and skin treatments.
