Although birds are a non-judgmental bunch of aviators, they do enjoy a good view when they fly above parks and walkways gazing at the scalps of flightless humans. Today's Groupon turns the tops and fronts of brain-domes into art-domes: for $75, you get an hour-long facial, a haircut, a deep-conditioning treatment, and an eyebrow waxing at Studio 229, a $170 total value. Located on the upper floor of the Lota Building on Broadway Avenue East, the upscale salon is equally adept at shortening long hair and long faces.
Studio 229 hosts a chic oasis of a salon space, where rich goldenrod walls surround mirrors that are supported by waist-high Grecian pillars. A team of professional hair designers brings elegance and creativity to the top of a customer's head through the aid of scissor hands and high-quality hair products by Alterna, Sebastian, and Thermafuse. Trained in the ancient art of follicle taming, each stylist is capable of fusing personal experience with client requests to create a cut of utmost satisfaction. After the expert haircut ($45+), a deep-conditioning treatment ($20) is applied to give your new 'do increased strength and long-lasting radiance.
With a flowing perch successfully placed upon your head, the attention shifts from atop to front and center. The relaxing deep-cleanse facial ($85) is a 60-minute process that soothes and rebalances problematic skin. An antiseptic steaming graces your face to clean and open pores for the impending gentle extraction. After your mug is soft as a pushover lamb, a licensed aesthetician will shape-shift each brow ($20) to complete the beatification process.
