Throughout 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 $55, you get a highlights package at Salon ji in Lenexa (a $110 value). The package includes the following:
The tress tamers at Salon jj refurbish locks during a 60-to 90-minute treatment that transforms bland cranial canvases into stylish hair sculptures. A professional staffer commences the service with a sudsy shampoo before brandishing a pair of scissors or magic wand to make split ends and excess length disappear. Next, hue-thirsty strands soak in coloring products designed to lend locks with a touch of radiant pizzazz. To conclude, they will corral the hot breath of a blow dryer to banish loitering water beads or leftover bird eggs.
Before the service, patrons relax in armchairs, sip complimentary coffee, or gargle the theme to Home Improvement while taking advantage of the salon’s free WiFi network. Contemporary artwork and mirrors stud the parlor’s plum-colored walls, lending Salon ji a hip, upscale vibe.
When guests walk out of Salon Ji, they always feel different from when they entered, whether they’re reveling in newfound confidence due to a fresh hairstyle or an aura of relaxation after a soothing massage. In addition to cuts and color, stylists sweep hair into elegant updos, add extensions, or decorate locks with trendy feathers, which can help clients establish a good rapport with neighborhood sparrows. Nail specialists treat hands and feet to mani-pedis using regular or long-lasting Shellac polish, which remains chip-free for up to two weeks. The staff further pampers guests with facials and body waxing.
Pendant lights cast a soft glow over Salon Ji’s sleek purple-gray walls, which contrast with a collection of vibrant paintings. Waiting guests can cozy up in modern black armchairs and browse the web with complimentary WiFi while sipping coffee.
