Like cars, human beings require occasional corrective bodywork, custom finishing, and fresh coats of wax to avoid being towed away and crushed into a cube. Keep your chassis classy with today's Groupon to Folicle Salon and Spa in Dilworth. Choose from the following options:
- For $10, you get a brow wax (a $20 value).
- For $22, you get an express facial (a $45 value).
- For $22, you get an express mani-pedi (a $45 value).
Nestled in a quaint, historic, two-story house, the minimalist décor of the lower level—white walls, reflective wood floors, and lime-green salon chairs—enhances the vibrant atmosphere of the salon, and the spa services are secluded in serene private rooms on the second story. Elude razor burn and torturous tweezers with a gentle eyebrow wax, which will yield shapely, eye-accentuating arches. A 30-minute express facial cleanses pores, leaving skin as fresh and soft as a newborn porpoise, and a 45-minute express mani-pedi indulges distressed digits.
With padded lime-green chairs lounging on a pillared porch that runs the length of a two-story, century-old wooden house in Dilworth, Folicle could easily be mistaken for a bed and breakfast at first glance. Though they can’t stay the night, guests are encouraged to stop and rest awhile as stylists and aestheticians snip, shade, and smooth their hair, shape their nails, or unknot their muscles amid floor-to-ceiling mirrors that reflect honey wood floors.
Globetrotting salon CEO Edward Woody shares expertise garnered from training with Vidal Sassoon, Aveda, and the Netherlands’ Keune and a sense of style honed while designing dos for Badgley Mischka, Ellen Tracy, and the fashion spreads of several magazines. Visitors who catch his ear may find him ready to point out the salon’s eco-friendly features, such as a shampoo-area floor made from recycled tennis shoes and furniture made from banana plants whose monkeys had already abandoned them.
