Over time, hair has been evolutionarily selected to appear higher and higher on the human body, until by the late '50s it had congregated almost entirely on the head. Keep your hair from levitating away altogether with today's Groupon: for $39, you get $100 worth of services at Salon Ivy, one of the only hair-salons downtown. As an added bonus, Groupon purchasers get 20% off products on the day of their appointment.
Salon Ivy's skilled stylists offer a bevy of hair-care services, cultivating and harvesting men's and women's headtop fields. Women can prep for a fancy dinner or fancy dinnertime-fancytime with a shampoo and style ($30), or update their look entirely with a basic cut and style ($45) and all-over hair color ($65+). Men can blend in with younger men with a camouflage color ($30+), which refreshes fading hair tones, or keep locks from lingering in front of eyes with a basic cut and style ($30). All haircuts take place in private rooms, allowing the utmost individualized attention while the stylist focuses on one head only. Other services include waxing, makeup application, and extensions. For all of Salon Ivy's pampering procedures, only the highest-quality products—among them Schwarzkopf, Pureology, Moroccan Oil, and Viva Curl—are used.
Salon Ivy was mentioned in the Alaska Dispatch for its Gulf of Mexico cleanup efforts:
- Salon Ivy owner Brian Ivy said his company started collecting hair shortly before the Deepwater Horizon drill rig exploded April 20, killing 11 workers and triggering the ongoing spill in the Gulf. The timing was just coincidental, although the employee who suggested joining the program, Laura Ellis, is actually from Louisiana. Ivy described Laura Ellis as an "eco-stylist" who's encouraged the salon to adopt greener business practices. – Maia Nolan
