Like puppies' tails, hair can be straight, curly, or prone to moving uncontrollably. Calm excitable tresses with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $110 worth of hair services at Trendsetters Salon and Spa in Elgin.
Trendsetters Salon and Spa pampers locks with haircuts and color infusions. Expert snipsters begin each cut with a complimentary consultation during which clients can share dreams of molding their tresses into living Sasquatch sculptures ($38+ women, $25+ men). Wielding shears with the dexterity of a groundskeeper, stylists shape head-hedges into pleasing bobs, layers, and asymmetrical looks. Renegade fringes get corralled with a bangs trim ($10+), and parched manes can slurp up smoothies of deep-conditioner without fear of scolding ($15+).
Color-seekers may choose from such services as touch-ups ($60+), cap highlights ($69+), and foils ($80+/partial, $99+/full). Rather than sticking their heads in vanishing rainbows, guests can achieve major shade shifts with a double process ($97+), which removes the hair's natural hue and replaces it with a new palette of pigments. A perm mimics the high-fashion spirals of telephone cords and rotini pasta ($54+).
Trendsetters Salon and Spa
Golden-hued walls radiate warmth inside Trendsetters Salon and Spa, where an equally inviting staff stands eager to turn envisioned hairstyles into reality. With the help of Redken and Pureology products, stylists clip, color, and highlight locks. An aesthetic team mirrors the styling team's customer-service focus, but instead leads clients to treatment rooms more private than a diary’s secret bibliography. Inside, staff members perform massages, spray tans, waxing, and facials.
