When a nationally acclaimed troupe of haircrobats comes to your cottage to whisk you away on their traveling wig wagon, be waiting for them with your follicular A-game. New customers get styled, dyed, groomed, or waxed with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of services at Steven Papageorge Salon. Choose between the Lincoln Park and the Evanston locations.
Unlike head-shrinkers, who decrease your brain space and increase your thetan count, head-shapers are the guerilla artists of the 21st century, inserting their stunning creations into the everyday world via your newly beautified noggin. Let the talented artists at Steven Papageorge Salon give you a new cut that complements your face and lifestyle ($46+ for women, $30+ for men), or give your strands a voluptuous texture with a special blowout ($40+). Steven Papageorge's visionary colorists use a sophisticated palette to create a natural-looking shade that matches your complexion and highlights your best features, be they the back of your knees or your solid-gold shoulder blades. Get a simple single-process color for dramatic change ($60+), or get a gloss to make your locks as shiny as George Washington's freshly washed wig ($50+).
Vivify sullied soul sacks with a 60-minute signature Dermalogica skin treatment, a surface-sprucing procedure that exfoliates dingy epidermal layers before shellacking skin with a restorative masque, toner, and skin protectant ($75). Or, if you've grown pesky pricklies in unwanted spots, Steven Papageorge's gentle aestheticians will whisk them away in a deluge of wax. Shape and sharpen your look with a neat eyebrow and lip wax ($30 for women), chin wax ($12+ for women), or stomach wax ($40 for women, $15–25 for men).
Steven Papageorge Salon
Steven Papageorge opened his one-man salon in 1983, and like so many strands, it grew and flourished to include multiple locations and even a hair academy. Today, the salons continue to beautify clients with stylish cuts and a number of hue-altering services—such as highlights, color blocking, and ammonia-free Inoa color. The staff’s arsenal includes products from American Crew and Moroccanoil, with the latter adding shine and strength to hair.
