Before deep-conditioning treatments, stylists made hair shinier by dipping it in butter or weaving it into a scale model of a Ferrari F430. Enjoy speedier shine with today's Groupon: for $50, you get two blowouts with styling (a $45 value each) and two deep-conditioning treatments (a $25 value each) at Thomas West Salon in the Merchandise Mart (a $140 value).
The 20 expert stylists at Thomas West Salon clean up head streets one tuft at a time through creative blow-drying, styling, and conditioning services. During a deep-conditioning treatment (a $25 value), a moisturizing tincture shines strands to a glossy shimmer, ensuring that hair will no longer sleepwalk to the refrigerator for midnight mayonnaise-and-cream-cheese conditioning treatments. Then, hair wranglers wield a warm, whirring blow dryer to smooth and style strands during a blowout (a $45 value). Clients can opt to use both sets of treatments on themselves or invite a friend to get two sets of tresses shined side-by-side, emerging as radiant as a binary star system or set of his-and-hers microwaves.
