Throughout history, hairstyles have mirrored art, from the rococo beehive of Madame Pompadour to the modern cubism of Kid 'N Play’s flattop. Craft a work of hair art with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get three feather hair extensions at Streets of London Salon (a $25 value).
Streets of London houses an enclave of hair artisans with European expertise, their hip styles and top products winning the title of best salon in Chicago from AOL's City's Best in 2010. Their hair extensions strive to revamp tired tresses without damaging natural locks, with colors ranging from fire-engine red to a subtle olive green. Currently popular among Hollywood starlets, poultry-plucked headwear takes 15 minutes to apply, can last up to four months depending on maintenance, and only takes five minutes to remove. No harsh chemical processes are involved, allowing scalps to gain texture and dimension without abusing the Earth or receiving a court summons from Captain Planet.

The salon’s funky décor of indoor streetlights and graffiti-adorned walls transports patrons across the pond for a spell, saving the trouble of finding airfare or a magic flying umbrella.
