The earliest salons were informal gatherings where B-list philosophers gibbered away so they couldn't hear themselves dying of plague. Get an earful of the modern salon’s soothing sounds with today's Groupon: for $60, you get $125 worth of hair services at Thomas West Salon in the Merchandise Mart.
The expert stylists at Thomas West Salon are committed to cleaning up the streets of Chicago one tuft at a time through creative cutting and coloring services. Dress your head in perky new pigments with a single-process color treatment ($70+) or partial foil ($105+). Or alter the shape of your scalp's outfit by having the ends and layers professionally hemmed ($65+ for women's haircuts, $45+ for men's) before installing permanent hairline zippers for quick and easy mane changes.
After strands are dipped in high-performing products from Aveda, Sebastian Professional, Bumble and bumble and more, they will sparkle like icy Pluto glistening in five-hour-old sunlight and will no longer sleepwalk to the refrigerator for midnight mayonnaise-and-cream-cheese conditioning treatments.
