A salon visit makes tresses feel appreciated, and a saloon visit makes them cower in fear of cowboy hat hair. Keep hair happy with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a cut with style (up to a $100 value), a Kérastase deep-conditioning treatment (a $40+ value), and your choice of color (a $70+ value) or partial highlights (a $95+ value) at Urban Retreat Day Spa & Salon (up to a $235 total value). This Groupon is valid at the spa’s West Gray Street location.
The stylists at Urban Retreat pamper locks with a multitude of nourishing hair services, performed in a sunny space replete with a view of the Houston skyline and valet parking. An updated cut restores hair to its preferred persona, and the well-placed winds of a salon blow dryer and expert styling further boosts confidence. Tresses forget they were ever thirsty after a Kérastase Paris deep-conditioning treatment, which sends strands on a virtual vacation to the Seine for smoothing moisture and a meringue. Using the Alfaparf line of products, colorists deepen or alter shades to a pleasing hue, or, with the partial-highlight option, borrow solar alchemy for a subtle glint. The suite of services takes about 2.5 hours to complete, depending on hair length, texture, thickness, and tendency to reminisce.
Urban Retreat Day Spa & Salon
The staff at Urban Retreat Day Spa & Salon makes pampering their clients a top priority, a mission that becomes evident the moment patrons enter the ultraluxe space. Picture windows overlook the Houston skyline, which, in turn, casts a soothing blue glow over the dove-gray walls and mirrored styling stations. There, a staff of accomplished stylists brings a vast experience of working New York Fashion Week Shows and educating for L’Oreal’s luxury brand Kerastase & Shu Uemura and Aloxxi’s Italian Color. Across from the salon, a row of plush couches and golden soaking tubs line the nail studio, which also offers pristine city views as trained nail artists wield eco-friendly products to paint fingers and toes. A conjoining hallway dangling with crystal chandeliers leads guests to Urban Retreat’s spa, where certified technicians discreetly perform massages and laser hair-removal treatments, as well as facial services bolstered by physician-grade Société Clinical Skincare products.
