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 Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of services at Vogue College of Cosmetology, with locations in San Antonio on Ingram Road and Fredricksburg Road.
The student aestheticians and stylists at Vogue College treat tresses and pamper visages under the supervision of experienced instructors. More than 50,000 students have graduated from Vogue College, each learning to perform the treatments that form Vogue College's sizeable slate of salon services. Beauty-seekers can mix and match services with a shampoo, blow-dry, and curling-iron treatment ($10+) plus a bikini wax ($20+) and a spa manicure ($10), or focus solely on sloughing off dead skin cells by indulging in a microdermabrasion treatment ($35). A pedicure ($12), basic manicure ($7), plain facial ($10), and an eyebrow wax ($7) touch up all extremities, leaving the shorelines of the body in pristine condition.
Men can facilitate waterslide aerodynamics by shedding hair with a back wax ($30+) and clipper cut ($7), or liven up dull hair and skin with an edge up ($5), and back facial ($25). The student stylists at Vogue also perform makeup applications ($20) and highlights ($35+).
