Though a huge fan of bargains, I’ve always been skeptical of sites like Groupon and Lifebooker. There’s a catch to everything, and I don’t want to be a casualty of a scam. But when I checked out the exorbitant prices of hair appointments in NYC (upwards of $300 at most venues), I knew I needed to find a salon through Groupon. Sure enough, I was soon awarded with a great deal for full highlights, a cut, a blowdry, and deep conditioning. Though hesitant to redeem the voucher, as it could have very well resulted in a permanent bad hairdo, I went ahead and used it at Platinum Salon downtown.
The master stylist took about three hours to finish everything, but did an amazing job. I’ll definitely return when it comes time to touch up my roots.
