If fairy tales have taught us anything, it's that true inner beauty will always reveal itself, and true outer beauty will always require the nimble fingers of animal familiars. Employ the handiwork of the next best thing with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a package of goods and services at Escape Salon and Spa (a $100 value) that includes:
- A $25 gift card for salon services
- A self-selected gift bag of Aveda products (a $75 value)
Offering an artful array of salon-and-spa services, Escape restores and refines visages with professional color, spray-tanning, and hair-styling services. Drawing on an armory of brand-name products, Aveda-trained stylists tame wayward hair into smooth cascades of coiffure while adding layers, volume, or face-framing tendrils. Clear lines of vision for vision contests with eagles with a bang trim ($10), or turn a full head of tresses over for a cut and conditioning ($50–$65). Foil lined with robust Aveda hues imbues strands with sun-imitating highlights. Clients can also exile unruly curls or vexing puffiness with Keratin Complex smoothing treatments, which can banish up to 95% of frizz. Escape also gilds forms in spray-tanning sessions ($40 each), helping to harbor a healthy glow as cooler weather brings an onslaught of pumpkins covering up the sun.
Clients can extend professional styles at home with a gift pack brimming with $75 worth of a selection of Aveda items — a personalized potpourri of hair, skin, and beauty products to be given as gifts or carried at all times, to treat the effects of any spontaneous cream pie attacks.
