Early humans believed that hair was actually the tentacles of an octopus living inside their skull—an amusingly quaint notion now that modern science has proven it's technically a cuttlefish. Indulge your inner invertebrate with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a haircut and style (a $40 value) at The Strand, located on Southwest 1st Avenue. . This eco-conscious business has been transforming uncouth cockney coiffures into refined English tresses for more than 25 years. The house combination of high-performing plant-based products and etiquette-educated stylists translates into stunning hair-based results. The attack on wayward strands begins with a consultation with a junior stylist to align the client's expectations with the stylist's knowledge of the best looks to suit hair textures and facial features. Next, tense customers can unwind with a shoulder, neck, and scalp massage using various Aveda oils before having their manes unwound and then woven into soft, newly shining neck capes.
