Without hair, models wouldn’t have a feature that flapped fetchingly in the wind, leading fashion lines to become oversaturated with superhero capes and baggy dresses made out of airport windsocks. Spruce up a head-kite with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a consultation, haircut, style, and Kerstase hair-mask treatment (up to a $105 value) at Salon Baobao.
Utilizing only the highest-quality products and snipping techniques, Salon Baobao’s skilled staff ardently shapes the locks of patrons inside a colorful artworked interior. Each visit begins with a style consultation, followed by a men’s haircut ($35–$45) or women’s haircut ($55–$75). After hair is properly prim, follicular wreckage is cleared and noodle nests undergo a conditioning Kerastase hair-mask treatment ($30) that strengthens hair while imbuing a sheen that is more radiant than a rare gem dipped in cooking oil. Stop in for a masterful mane manicuring, become hypnotized by the luxe atmosphere, and emerge from Salon Baobao ready to bait more glances than a strongman juggling shopping carts in a hotel lobby.
Bao Tonthat, a colorist, stylist, and fashion designer with 15 years of professional experience in the salon world, is the brains behind Salon Baobao's body curtain. His stylists were selected out of a bowling-alley claw-crane arcade machine for their ability to infuse creativity into any look, whether funky, classic, or identical to Pat Boone circa 1966.
