If the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, then disheveled hair provides the least efficient route for climbing monkeys to reach the bananas in your fruit hat. Today's Groupon tames tresses for easy scaling at Tangles Salon, located in Pasadena. Choose between the following services:
- For $40, you get a L'Oreal powershot deep-conditioning treatment (a $35 value) and a New York finishing "blow-dry” (up to a $55 value).
- For $35, you get a men’s haircut (up to a $55 value) and scalp treatment (a $25 value).
An experienced squad of educated, creative stylists populates the roster at Tangles Salon, and cable network TLC tapped the salon's expertise for the show Real Simple, Real Life. The deep-conditioning L'Oreal powershot treatment repairs and softens hirsute heads, resulting in a silky shininess that withstands seven shampoos, while the professional New York “blow-dry” bestows bouncy body to tresses. Men can slip into a scissor-wielder’s chair after the deep-conditioning scalp treatment, where a meticulous stylist will snip, shape, and shear locks into a finely coiffed mane or the shape of any state bird. After the treatment, feel free to consult with one of Tangles’ talented thread-keepers on proper hair maintenance.
Within the welcoming cocoon of the salon, champagne-colored walls surround comfy, black-leather chairs, and a wide array of revitalizing products are available for a 20% discount with this Groupon on the day of your treatment.

Although it has been a staple in the heart of old-town Pasadena for 14 years, Tangles Salon doesn't rest on its laurels. Its team is committed to continual education and beautifies clients with the latest products and techniques. Owner Cathy Sripramong was a L'Oréal Professionnel educator for 7 years, most of the stylists have been designing hair for more than 20 years, and the salon was recently one of a select few to undergo training with Andrew Bartfield—color master and former head of education for L'Oréal Professionnel. This thirst for knowledge and extensive experience earned them Pasadena Weekly Reader Recommended awards in 2010 and 2012 and an appearance on a 2008 episode of TLC's Real Simple. Real Life.
One of the salon's signature services is the DevaCurl Curly Girl dry haircut—a process that, like carving your name on the seat of a Tilt-A-Whirl, takes about 90 minutes and produces distinctive curls. The hair tamers also specialize in balayage and ombre highlights, straightening treatments, and extensions, and are certified in nonsurgical hair replacement.
