In the Old West, cowboys rode into town to have glass of whiskey at the town saloon, heckle the thieves in the stockades, and exfoliate their rugged mugs with the sheriff's spurs. Saddle up for modern shaping up with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of salon and spa services at Salon in the Tower on Main Street in Clarence.
Salon in the Tower, which is located in a tower-topped building that looks more like an old chapel than a palace of pulchritude, provides beauty-bolstering spa and salon services. To reshape knotted skull brambles, opt for a haircut ($39 for women; prices vary per stylist), or transform the tone of dull head-threads with hair color ($42+). A manicure ($20) polishes finger helmets to glimmering hues, an eyebrow ($12) or lip wax ($10) uproots unwanted fuzz, and a facial ($80) suited to your skin type takes care of complexion imperfections.
Salon owners Jen and Laura were trained at the prestigious Bumble and bumble University in NYC; they use their expertise to guide their staff in collaborating with clients' corporeal creativity. The salon is flush with its own aesthetic flair—it has buttery couches, wood trim, soft lighting, and elegant windows through which fairies are fond of tossing tiny, sparkling frisbees.

Salon in the Tower
Heading down Main Street in historic Clarence Hollow, you might notice a whimsical three-story structure with a clock at the top. Salon in the Tower lives at the base of that building. What began as a staff of two has now grown into a team of 14 where stylists continue ongoing education at Bumble and Bumble University in NYC to stay up to date on the latest cutting, coloring, and styling techniques. In addition to performing the trendiest cutting and coloring techniques, the providers at the spa portion of the center, perform spa treatments such as massages, facials, and mani-pedis against a backdrop of dark wooden columns, trim, and wall paneling. They use Pevonia's botanical- and marine-based products for skincare services, and they carry the Olivia Garden line of bamboo brushes, which can help with home hairstyling or distract an attacking panda.
