Bodies get natural color through spray tanning without having to suffer through burns, harmful UV radiation, and the sun’s endless collection of Oort cloud vacation slides. Savor your solar solitude with today's Groupon: for $17, you get one full-body spray tan or a Shellac manicure at Couture Salon in Plantsville (a $35 value).
Couture Salon augments allure with an array of enhancements in its chic, modern style lab. A safe, UV-free alternative to tanning booths, the sun's harsh rays, or rubbing oneself with glow-in-the-dark frisbees, a spray tan combats cooped-up winter skin. In a private room, a trained technician will apply one of four levels of shades, from light medium to extra dark, for a healthy glow. Those opting for the Shellac manicure, a relatively new innovation in nail technology that employs a UV light and special gel solution, will have their digit-jewels coated in durable, glossy gowns that may last up to two weeks.
Dean and Lisa Rodrigue always talked about opening their own salon. In 2010, they took the leap and founded Couture Salon, a chic hair salon with dark hardwood floors and upscale touches like brocade accent walls. Since opening they business, they’ve sharpened their hair-styling skills and broadened their service menu. In addition to waxing and spray-tan treatments, they offer facials and eyelash extensions. Couture Salon stays open until 8 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays to accommodate the moon if it needs a haircut and those with busy work schedules.
