Having to grow your hair ridiculously long, to help Prince Charming climb up to the tower you are locked in, is highly unlikely nowadays. Due to the invention of long ladders, levitation and really cool jetpacks choosing to get a haircut is no longer a matter of happily ever after or spending your nights alone in your tower playing Cluedo with a talking chameleon. If your hair needs a snip, grab today’s Groupon of a wash, cut and a blow dry at Hair Today for R119.
Hair Today, situated at The Wedge Shopping Centre in Morningside, is a trendy salon that caters for your crowning glory needs. The hair guru’s at Hair Today will start by carefully washing your hair with the latest glam products leaving it smelling so good, car air fresheners will be made in its honour. Next the stylist will snip your hair to your preferred sassy style; whether you go for a short Pulp fiction-esque cut or a mere trim, these friendly stylists will take the utmost care when handling your locks. Your Groupon treat will end off with a professional blow-dry that will guarantee silky smooth locks that will automatically make love songs play in the background wherever you go.
Today’s Groupon will have your hair sending you a BFF bracelet followed by a cheesy sing-o-gram to say thanks, in five part harmony. As the saying goes, a haircut is as good as a holiday or doing the chicken dance to a mariachi band’s version of “Funky Town”, so you really have no excuse. You may also need to work out a name tag system or ask potential suitors to take a ticket and join the back of the line after the stylists at Hair Today are done.
Scooping up this Groupon is you voting for change, an epic revolution of tresses that will lead you from the darkness of hats and brown paper-bags into the light of the just-got-off-the-runway kind. Surely this is not a Groupon you can allow to pass by unless you like having recurring nightmares about Cruella Deville making comparisons between her mane and yours.
Hairy fact: A women in Pamplona who cut her 5m ponytail off, sewed a quilt out of her hair to keep her warm for the winter. Although successful in keeping her warm the quilt made the woman sad as it reminded her of the hair she lost and she subsequently died in her sleep from a broken heart.
