A great haircut can inspire even the most listless and despondent of scalps, much like a papier-mâché crown of Chicken Soup for the Soul essays. Give your head a pick-me-up with today’s Groupon: for $99 you get a hair-straightening package at The Loft Salon in Temecula (a $290 value). The package includes:
- A Brazilian-blowout or keratin-smoothing treatment (up to a $225 value)
- A haircut (a $65 value)
- Complimentary consultation, scalp massage, shampoo, and glass of wine. For customers younger than 21, sweets will be provided in lieu of alcohol.<p>
The Loft Salon’s stylists reupholster crowns with professional services and products, including Eufora and Moroccanoil. During haircuts, experienced hair artists trim shampooed head-hedges to desired lengths and styles tailored to customer specifications and instructional scalp tattoos. In as little as 90 minutes, Brazilian-blowout treatments conjure bonding reactions that elicit up to 12 weeks of shimmering, straight locks by wrapping hair in a protective protein sheath. Alternative keratin treatments achieve similar results with a flatiron-bonded infusion of natural keratin designed to smooth out kinked and frizzy tresses the same way sheep organically align their coats when hiding from wolves.
Light pours through floor-length windows nestled between the salon’s vaulted ceilings and Brazilian Zebra–wood floors to illuminate a modernist interior-design aesthetic. During appointments, clients snack on complimentary wine and sweets like Candy Land’s native sommelier.
Some hair-straightening products that claim to be formaldehyde-free include aldehyde compounds, which are similar to the carcinogen formaldehyde. Side effects may include nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among others. Learn more about the health risks here.
The Loft Salon
Not content to let their dream be anything but memorable, owners Sonny and Debbie Carroll brought modernist flourishes to the space they selected to serve as a home for their salon. Beneath soaring vaulted ceilings and full-length windows, the existing Brazilian zebra-wood floor glowed the shade of rich molasses, ideal for the sleek haircare stations that the couple would bring in.
Now, with the salon in full swing, light fixtures with the metallic complexity of alien flora shine over potted plants near skilled stylists, who snip and sculpt tresses. As patrons survey the nearby Ronald Reagan Sports Park, the aesthetes wield a selection of products by lines such as Enjoy and Eufora. A fleet of services fills the salon with the busy chorus of humming hair dryers, snapping scissors, and paper clips asking for career advice.
