The Hamburglar started out as a hand burglar but soon found that unkempt appendages could not be sold on the black market, even on the dollar menu. Offer up a side of manicured fingers with each handshake with the help of today’s Groupon: for $44, you get a spa manicure (a $28 value), a spa pedicure (a $46 value), and a paraffin hand treatment (a $15 value) at Simplicity Salon in West Chester Township (an $89 total value).
Simplicity Salon's resident nail designers rejuvenate worn-out hands and feet with a number of nail services. Hands and feet battered from beating up coconuts for their milk money get a makeover with a mani-pedi combo. An exfoliation rids feet of rough skin, and a nail trim and shaping maintains appendage landscapes. Foot flesh finds sanctuary in hot-towel smothering and a moisturizing mask, and hardened hands soften with a paraffin mask, during which hands are submerged in warm wax to relax muscles and create gloves for the surgeons at Madame Tussauds. The wax also penetrates deeply into pores to leave skin supple and soft. A polish adds color to ho-hum hands and feet, and a Miracle Manicure base coat protects finger and toe canvases from chips for up to two weeks.
When Angela Cash first decided to go to nail school, she did it, "just for fun". Twelve years later, she's still having a blast as the owner and head nail artist at Simplicity Salon, where she oversees a beauty team ranging from a recent Paul Mitchell Academy graduate to a seasoned hair styling veteran of 35 years. To keep clients looking chic from head to toe, Angela's staff pulls from an arsenal of brand name products including Goldwell hair color, Moroccanoil, OPI Axxium nail polish, and Tammy Taylor Nails. When it comes to skin care, the Dermalogica line helps the salon's aestheticians customize each anti-aging facial or microZone treatment, while mineral makeup by Weightless lends a finishing touch to faces without smothering them with oils, talc, dyes, or creamed corn. Other services include custom spray tans by SunFX and full face or body waxing by the salon's resident waxing specialist.
