The earliest salons were informal gatherings where B-list philosophers gibbered away so they couldn't hear themselves dying of plague. Get an earful of the modern salon’s soothing hair-dryer purrs and scissor chop-chops instead with today's deal: for $49, you get $110 worth of hair care, skincare, hair removal, lash tinting and extensions, and other salon services at Vanity Junkie, on Hawthorne Boulevard in the Southeast Warehouse District. The value of this Groupon may be used across multiple visits.
During your session at Vanity Junkie, one of the salon's friendly superstar stylists or aestheticians will tend to your every detail, equipped with professional products by brands including Redken, Pureology, Sexy Hair, Éminence Organic Skin Care, and Mineralogie makeup. Put your best face forward, preserving your worst face for more important times (such as Halloween), with a Youthfully Vain facial, which uses fresh herbs and fruit extracts to stimulate cell renewal, or an Overactive Gland facial that includes a Hungarian herbal mud mask to purify and soothe acne- and oil-ridden skin ($40–$100). Ear candling with a pressure-point massage ($65) removes pesky wax and noxious toxins from the ear canal by means of a painless, heat-generated vacuum, relieving head pressure and making Finnegans Wake on tape considerably easier to read. Landscape your head lawn with a well-fashioned follicle pruning (haircuts start at $20 for children, $25 for men, and $35 for women) or an all-over color ($65–$75) while weeding rogue hairs from other parts of your body with waxing ($12–$60). Put the finishing touches on your façade with a brow or lash tint ($20 each or $30 for both).
An eclectic mix of art, furniture, mirrors, and fancy light fixtures infuse Vanity Junkie with funky vibes, reassuring visitors that the remixes of their reflections will be fun and up-to-date. The salon also has its own coffee bar, so customers can choose to get buzzed along with their hair. Call ahead to schedule an appointment with one of Vanity Junkie's visage revitalists Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
