Without care and attention, human hair will tie itself in knots, uproot itself in the shower, and rope its owner into sleeping near oscillating airplane engines. Keep your hair from acting up with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of hair services at Shampoo Avenue B.
Shampoo Avenue B’s stylists, who were recently featured in Mama’s a Rolling Stone magazine, treat tangled tresses of all types with an array of scalp-sprucing services. Patrons submit unkempt coiffures to scissor-wielding craftspeople for beautifying haircuts ($60+), such as angelic bobs, honey-free beehives, and slimmed-down trims.
Single-process colorings ($100+) restore dull canaries to electrifying lemons and rescue fading blacks from the imminent dawn of gray, and updos ($90+) leave any head of hair primmed and ready for an elegant Millard Fillmore Day celebration. Punk colorings are available and priced upon consultation, and Brazilian blowouts begin at $300.
The salon space pleases the eye and puts strands at ease. Shiny shears gleam amid vibrant pinks, yellows, and sky blues. Exposed brick walls inform rustic salon stations, which rest under the glow of chandelier lighting. Each stylist executes his or her services in accordance with the client's goals, wielding salon products from brands such as Bumble and bumble, Kevin Murphy, and Aveda.
- Shampoo is not your typical high end hair salon. It is edgy, avant-garde and has a touch of East Villlage's artsy, punk rock feel to it. That doesn't mean you will not get a quality service here. – Athena C., Yelp, 3/7/11
- The staff is warm and welcoming and they really listen. I should mention that I have curly hair and they really know how to cut curls. Go and Enjoy! – Moe68, Citysearch
