Jump to: Reviews | The Haircut Millionaires Get

Shock limp locks into voluminous 'dos or prepare for your upcoming zeppelin race with smooth legs with today's Groupon to Urban Escape by Subairi: $25 gets you $50 worth of hair and waxing services from the friendly stylists at Urban Escape. Combine up to three Groupons ($150 worth of Urban Escape goodness) for a serious salon session with multiple services or one big-ticket service, such as a spiral perm (a $100 value and up) or a full-leg wax (a $90 value).

Subairi and his team of friendly and professional stylists will wade through the dense foliage of unkempt locks to find the perfect cut for your face and lifestyle. Direct their careful scissors or let their creative juices flow wildly onto your scalp. The colorists at Urban Escape mix the perfect shade for your dome, so that it matches your complexion and looks natural. If you're in need of some waxing to improve the aerodynamic-ness of your physique, the soothing staff will make you as comfortable as possible with today's technology. After your physical transformation, you'll spend your time glimpsing at your reflection in storefront windows and shiny garbage cans.

Centrally located near Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, and U Street, Urban Escape is easy to access from both the red and yellow line.

Yelpers give Urban Escape 4.5 stars, and CityVoters rave about their favorite stylists:

  • Not only is the staff the most friendly, and professional, there's a L'oreal educator on staff, so the color services are the BEST!!!!! – Angela, CityVoter
  • They...give the customer the Big Spender treatment to the smallest customer. – Matt Echtermeyer, CityVoter

The cost of its Big Spender Treatment® is on a sliding scale, equivalent to 10% of the customer’s yearly income, and includes the following amenities:

  • Hair is cut with gold scissors and dried with a silver towel.
  • Blue disinfecting liquid for combs can be changed to any color upon request.
  • The speakers don’t play Gilbert O’Sullivan’s “Alone Again (Naturally)”; Gilbert O’Sullivan plays “Alone Again (Naturally).”
  • A pile of money is set in front of the barber chair for children to frolic in.
  • Your haircut is complimented by your childhood rival, who is flown in to stand before you.
