For $22 I could get a wash, cut, and style (value up to $45), for $49 I could get a choice of a root-colour touch-up or partial highlights, a Schwarzkopf hair mask treatment, wash, blow-dry, and style, and a Moroccanoil treatment (whatever that is! value up to $155), OR for $59 I could get a deep-conditioning treatment, haircut, partial highlights, and the option to upgrade to blow-dry for $20 (value up to $145).
Seeing as I was just looking for a trim, I opted for the $22 package.
Perfect.....a wash and trim at a Bank St. (If you live it Toronto, think Bloor St. West area) for a measly $22....and then I needed to add all of the incidentals!
1) Taxes - I was required to pay the taxes on what would have been the original price (at least, I think!) at the salon. $5.85
2) Tip - As per Groupon's recommendations, always tip on the original price of the service. $7.00
3) Parking - I found a lot downtown that cost $8.00 for 2 hours....since I don't spend much time downtown, I'm not sure if that was reasonable or not.
Total price for my Groupon haircut: $42.85....Had I not purchased the Groupon, my final bill after tip and parking would have been approximately $65.85.....not too shabby!
Next up: I'm eyeing a $19 Groupon for Four Mini Boot-Camp classes ($63 value)!
