Like Jacksons, fingers and toes perform best in groups of five and when dressed in matching colors. Pamper your appendage quintets with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a mani-pedi from Julie Spurlock at 10th Avenue Hair Design (a $60 value).
In a private room at 10th Avenue Hair Design, nail technician Julie Spurlock pampers hands and feet using locally produced scrubs and natural ingredients. Julie begins the 30-minute manicure by exfoliating hands and forearms with the scrub, massaging the skin with essential oils and whisking away dead skin cells with hot towels. A heavy moisturizer helps to soften and hydrate hands for giving coworkers a gentle handshake or Siberian tigers a nearly imperceptible pat on the back, and a coat of polish finishes fingernail fronts with luster. Julie's one-hour pedicure soaks feet in a relaxing bath to soften rough skin and callous heels. Julie massages in the natural foot scrub, filing away dry skin and applying a shiny polish to toe tips.
10th Avenue Hair Designs
The sounds of snips and relaxed sighs join together in a chorus that fills 10th Avenue Hair Designs, where 22 beauty professionals cut locks in classic and avant-garde styles, massage weary muscles, and lavish skin with facials. Skilled stylists pepper this uninterrupted song with lively chatter as they stroll around salon chairs, tending to unkempt hairdos with expert highlights, straightening treatments, and natural-looking extensions. Just outside a splash zone sprinkled with cropped strands and shampoo suds, the salon’s nail technicians brighten appendages with cherry-red and blush-pink coats of polish and chip-resistant Shellac.
Further removed from the action on the salon’s main floor, a massage therapist stationed in a private treatment room kneads away knots with Swedish strokes and gently applies pressure to feet during reflexology sessions. The salon’s focus on natural remedies is on full display during facial treatments, in which aestheticians pamper and rejuvenate skin with handmade scrubs, lactic and natural flower acids, and facials that incorporate seaweed.
