Without haircuts to tame them, strands of hair would follow their natural instincts, wandering off in search of the conditioner rivers that sustain them and the pigs and ponies whose tails they use as camouflage. Contain wild manes with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a haircut and a style at Salon 8736 in Nottingham (a $65 value).
Salon 8736's experienced stylists shape unsightly strands into chic coiffures. Recline in one of the cushioned black-leather chairs as a savvy stylist lops off split ends, uneven layers, and powdered-wig remnants. Professional products from Redken, Pureology, and L'Oréal slither through head fringes, leaving behind smoothed, refined locks. Golden and copper walls, wood accents, and chandeliers create the impression of being a guest in a lavish drawing room.
The warm glow of wall sconces and crystal chandeliers bathes the earth-hued salon in elegant light, illuminating the team of certified stylists and colorists as they reinvent hairstyles from behind plush styling chairs. They draw from professional name-brand products, such as L’Oréal Professionnel and Moroccanoil, as they perform cuts, colors, and smoothing treatments. Nail techs, meanwhile, lavish digits in decorative polishes as aestheticians shoot for epidermal excellence with facials, makeup applications, and waxing services. Staffers also offer in-house and onsite bridal services, prepping brides-to-be and their life-size cake toppers for the big day. Salon 8736 is a Best of Groupon 2013 and 2015 salon with customers' positive feedback.
