Beauty is pain, from smearing habanero chilies on cheeks to get a rosy-red glow to breaking every mirror in the house until one finally realizes who's the fairest of them all. Get beautiful in a less extreme way with today's Groupon: for $80, you get a haircut and style (a $65 value for women, $40 for men), plus a choice of partial highlight or full color (a $115 value each) at Rootz Salon & Spa in Los Gatos (up to a $195 total value).
At Rootz, extensively trained stylists Lori, Jenna, and Lisa lend their professional input and individual style recommendations to craft lavish locks. After honeyed highlights or dramatic dark browns are painted on manes, clients can repose in a sleek leather salon chair at the shampoo station as their stylist cleanses and conditions all deserving strands. Nimble fingers gently massage knotted necks and tense scalps as the conditioner seeps into and quenches dry coif cuticles. Strands are then snipped and styled to fit the client's personality or propensity to eat, sleep, and file taxes on rollycoasters.
Before the appointment, sip on a free beverage, such as coffee, tea, beer, or wine, while relaxing among the bright lights, cheery yellow walls, and exposed brick. For additional escapist joys, browse the extensive selection of hair magazines or Kérastase and Kevin Murphy products while trying to figure out if the drink you received was complimentary, complementary, both, or just a dream.
