If your eyes are the windows to your soul, your hair is the tunnel to your mind. Keep your mind matter from escaping with today's hair-taming Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of salon services at Solé Salon and Spa Clinic, located in Emeryville.
Intricately braided into the Aveda network, Solé Salon offers an armada of body-buffing services to treat tangled tresses and update staid 'dos. Sporting a skilled staff ranging from apprentice stylists to senior coiffeurs, the trained trimmers are matched to each client's beauty needs to create luscious locks. Let the deft hands of a new talent ($45) or junior stylist ($50) snip a bewitching haircut, which includes a consultation prior to a head, neck, and shoulder massage;, shampoo; condition; cut; and blow-dry. All five levels of scissorsmiths will reveal the secrets to maintaining manes while giving pointers on how to recreate the look at home, preventing neglected styles from running away to adorn heads on magazine covers.
Or, choose to use this Groupon toward the salon's plethora of additional fine-tuning hair services, such as highlights (starting at $75), color (starting at $45), a blowout (starting at $35), or a scalp-and-hair treatment that hydrates, balances, or calms follicles frazzled by marathon scalp hugging (starting at $60).
As your body indulges in a relaxing service, let your mind wander amid the sleek interior accented with vibrant colors and dark hardwood floors. Before leaving the blissful retreat, peruse the open lobby of Aveda products or press hands against the storefront's glass windows to high five newly chic reflections.
Solé Salon and Spa Aveda
Director Tony DeMartile—whose favorite Aveda product happens to be the glossing straightener—leads the skilled staff of stylists and aestheticians at Solé Salon and Spa Aveda. He and his team employ an arsenal of botanical Aveda products as they wrangle hairdos, shape brows, and refresh skin. Solé's goal is a simple one: to make the experience of each client relaxing, fun, and memorable. To that end, its facials and skincare services for men and women alike imbue epidermises with moisture while unclogging pores. Stylists treat hair the way a pro football team's grounds crew treats grass: they cut it, color it, and perform conditioning treatments on it with Aveda hair products.
