Like most women, I can remember my first trip to the hair salon. My Mom made the appointment just before Easter Sunday, and as the day approached I was giddy with anticipation. I had dreams of having curls down to my shoulder and bangs cut evenly across my forehead after years of Mom’s attempts to save money by doing her children’s hair herself. My squirming usually resulted in bangs hacked to an uneven slant across my face which made it hard to curl on one end. I was so self-conscious about the way I looked that I sulked and whined all day. The next year I turned 13 and to my great delight, she made an appointment for me.
It’s too bad we didn’t have Groupons in those lean days. Mom could have saved lots of money had the technology existed then. Now you can use a Groupon and save up to 60% off services like a Keratin conditioner, and even more on haircuts, coloring, hair extensions and styles. And these coupons are good for the very salons we couldn’t afford just a few years ago. The services are provided by top stylists who are licensed and well trained to provide you with quality hair care, even at the deeply discounted Groupon prices. And Groupon has made using the coupons so easy to use you just use the app on your smart phone to purchase and apply the coupon. I tell all my friends about them. Some are surprised to learn about the change and remember having to purchase coupons the old fashioned way. Checking in daily to mine through offers that weren’t relevant, or missing opportunities by not buying them in time really sucked and some were really turned off by it.
Now you can search the category you want and find great deals at unbelievable prices right in your neighborhood. And there’s a code you can enter that will save you $25 off your first deal.
I now wear a Pixie cut and no longer worry about shoulder length curls and bangs. But now that my daughter has reached the age where she’s ready for salon styling you can bet we’re going to pull up a Groupon for her first cut and style. What’s cool is that we’ll save so much, we can treat my Mom to first-class salon services, too.
