Before scissors were invented, the wealthy senators of ancient Rome used specially trained camels to chomp their capillus into coiffure. Today's Groupon provides the same privileged sensation to heads with a much lower risk of ungulate-delivered stomping. For $25, new customers get a haircut and Aveda deep-conditioning treatment at The Establishment, located in Shorewood (a $60 value).
The Establishment's atmosphere is a post-industrial shabby-chic blend of nitrogen and oxygen, sporting earthy, naturally inspired colors and patterns, vintage mirrors, and hardware chests for each stylist's scissor armament. The salon also frequently hosts local film screenings, DJ events, and videos. Stylists Molly or Jessica will begin each session with a follicle-enthralling deep conditioning, which repairs areas damaged by wind, heat, and radiation leaks. The Establishment uses Aveda's line of sustainable, naturally derived salon products, many of which are produced in partnership with indigenous peoples such as the Yawanawa tribe of Brazil. After lulling rowdy strands into a false sense of security, the haircut commences, subduing the head population into a stylish skull cover. Molly and Jessica are capable of achieving any hairstyle, although four-dimensional coifs do require multi-spatial glasses for proper viewing.
The haircut and deep-conditioning treatment will have customers out the door and ready to face the hair-damaging challenges of everyday life, including sun damage, typhoons, and vicious insult comedy. Call ahead to schedule appointments with stylists Molly or Jessica. The Establishment is closed on Sundays, Mondays, and during plagues of locusts.
This Groupon does not cover tips. Cancellations or date changes require 24-hour notice to avoid a full-price fee.
