Hairstyles say a lot about a person: tidy trims exude responsibility, vibrant colors display confidence, and slithering snakes warn against eye contact. Wear your heart on your head with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of salon services at Salon 209.
Hair charmers and nail whisperers at Salon 209 unleash their style powers on clients in need of less-dated coifs and less-ragged claws. Like a trapeze artist’s big-top debut, crafting a new ‘do requires collaboration and several cans of pigeon repellent, which is why stylists confer with clients and their spirit animals before zipping through cowlicks with clippers. Ladies’ tresses meet with precision snips ($35+) while male manes retract into breathable summer shapes ($20+). Monochromatic tufts get a lift from all-over highlights ($80+ for a partial foil, $90+ for a full foil), and pins and clips knock tresses into clever updos ($55+), recreating timeless hairstyles or topiaries shaped like Easter Island statues. After stripping away layers of passé paint, finger armorers outfit each digit with a shiny shield designed by OPI or Zoya ($15+), varying veneers according to individual whims and styles.
Founded in 1998 at 209 North Magnolia Street, Salon 209 moved through three locations—including a former bank, vault and all—before settling into its current storefront. There, owner and master stylist Laura Burgoon and her team revitalize clients' looks among blond wood floors and apple-, rose-, and honey-colored walls. Nail technicians, aestheticians, and a massage therapist comprise the staff, who fight against beauty's arch nemesis—a perpetually foggy mirror—with a full menu of salon services using professional products from brands such as Redken and Pureology.
