Like a sound roof, a good haircut protects the head, looks appealing, and gives siren calls to gift-toting vagabonds. Keep hair irresistible with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a hair and spa package at The Lather Lounge in Munster (up to a $100 value). The package includes:
- A haircut, blow-dry, and style (up to a $50 value)
- A paraffin hand treatment (a $20 value)
- A Lemon-Aid treatment (a $20 value)

The Lather Lounge owner Lynn Griglin and her team of trained stylists pamper salon guests with a plethora of soothing and beautifying services at the Paul Mitchell focus salon. During the 90- to 120-minute spa treatment, stylists tame out-of-control 'dos with a flurry of snips, a blow-dry, and styling tools, such as a straightening, smoothing iron or life-size replica of a stern Iron Man. Meanwhile, weary hands find soothing relief with a paraffin hand treatment. The Lemon-Aid treatment makes the most out of lemons by blending deep conditioning, aromatherapy, and facial and hand massages with a combination of raw sugar and lemons, followed by a Perrier sparkling-water rinse. Guests enjoy complimentary drinks and snacks while stress winds its way back home next to left-on ovens.
The Lather Lounge
The Lather Lounge is a Paul Mitchell–focus salon that creates an atmosphere which allows clients to look and feel their best with a menu of indulgent hair services. Before opening her own salon, Lynn Griglin spent 2.5 years honing mane-management skills at Vidal Sassoon in Chicago, before working as an educator for Paul Mitchell, where she trained fellow stylists in the art of hair chromatics. Her equally dedicated staffers conjure pleasant visits by providing two complimentary services of the client's choice, such as a steam facial or neck massage, with each haircut, waxing, or skin treatment. In addition to snipping signature 'dos and shaping eyebrows into elegant arches or intimidating lightening bolts, The Lather Lounge contributes to several charitable causes, including cancer research and an organization that uses hair clippings to clean up oil spills.
