What You'll Get
When a nationally acclaimed troupe of hair-crobats comes to your cottage to whisk you away on their traveling wig wagon, be waiting for them with your follicular A-game. Today's Groupon gets you $125 of hair services for $50 at Travis Parker, a luxury La Jolla salon helmed by the celebrity stylist. Parker's shears have grazed the well-photographed tops of stars' heads including Cindy Crawford, Hilary Rodham Clinton, and The Girls Next Door.
Parker's namesake space is fashioned in purposefully minimalistic décor. Flat screens mounted to neutral tiled walls, products artfully arranged on wood shelves, and a glossy floor gives the space an invitingly posh feel. Prices vary according to the stylist's experience level. For an advanced hair shaper, cuts start at $65 for women and $35 for men and children. Book a one-step color service for $65, or try highlights (partial $95, full $115). Appointments with a master stylist start at $95 for women's cut and $65 for men. Or book an appointment with the celebrated coiffeur himself. His masterful ladysnips start at $185, with color services starting at $120 for one-step color and $205 for a full head of highlights.
Spending money on a quality cut is easy to justify, because unlike your favorite hole-in-the-elbow sweatshirt, your hair is socially acceptable to wear every single day. Parker's team completes rigorous training to sync up with his world-class philosophy and red-carpet results. Whether you're seeking corrective color, to duplicate a colleague's streaks, or an outrageous cut that vaporizes mosquitoes, the team of A-list mane molders are equipped with the education and products (Parker stocks cult favorite Kerastase and Texture Expert lines) to get your locks looking lovely. Call ahead to schedule your appointment and redeem your Groupon toward any service of your choice; products and gratuity are not included in total value.
