You know the economy is bad when spas and salons start offering special recession packages. But in one case, you'll get more than a good deal on a haircut — you might even get a job out of it.
Privé, which has salons in New York and Los Angeles, recently introduced an innovative way to combine primping with job-hunting. The salons' Interview Prep package ($95) combines a haircut, blowout, and your choice of eyebrow shaping or a manicure.
But here's the twist: After the salon services, Privé will give you a helping hand in the job search. Clients who book the interview package will also receive career placement assistance through job searching agencies in NYC and LA. Talk about customized service. "We decided to run this promotion as we feel that a large portion of our clientele have been directly affected by the recession," explains Privé owner Laurent Dufourg. "So many women are looking for jobs for the first time in years and that extra bit of confidence can go a long way." If you're on one of the coasts, would you jump on this opportunity?
