Hair stylists, like meteorologists, must learn job-specific jargon and possess the ability to make small talk about weather for hours at a time. Celebrate social graces and graceful tresses with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of services at Turning Heads Salon & Day Spa in Harlem.
Turning Heads Salon & Day Spa treats its clients to an upscale atmosphere where the staff pampers bodies and styles relaxed or natural coiffures. Stressed stylistas can end their searches for services such as twists and coils ($125) or sister locs (price upon consultation), and mop-tops tantalize their tresses with a shampoo and press or blow-dry (starting at $55) or a precision cut (starting at $35). The fully appointed day spa beautifies bods with services such as brow waxing ($20), gel manicures ($30), or detachable ears, and staff knot-kneaders mend muscles with Swedish massages ($100 for 60 minutes) and 30-minute basic back massages ($60). Turning Heads boasts a tidy, gold-tinged storefront with plenty of natural light that beckons customers to come back and never return to back-alley breadmakers-turned-massage therapists.
Turning Heads Salon & Day Spa
Turning Heads Salon & Day Spa has been beautifying the tresses of Harlem inhabitants with naturally derived products for almost two decades. But it wasn't until 2002 that they added on a day spa, where owner Sandy Scarborough oversees exfoliating body treatments, peels, and facials using Aveda products. In 2011, The Village Voice named it New York's best spa, praising the attentive staff and tranquil, unrushed atmosphere. Manicurists and makeup artists add color to faces and fingertips, while massage therapists smooth out muscle knots, preparing clients to end their beautification sessions with a sprint to the nearest mirror.
