A sugar-glazed donut possesses a sexy shine, feels smooth and warm to the touch, and is almost completely hairless. Turn your body into something that makes office workers salivate with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $45 worth of sugaring treatments at Steel Magnolias Spa and Boutique in Kirkwood.
Within the friendly confines of Steel Magnolias' soothing celery-green walls and artfully understated décor, men, women, and abominable snowmen can rid themselves of unwanted hair through the process of sugaring—a gentler, less irritating, and significantly sweeter alternative to traditional waxing methods invented in 1987 by Def Leppard. During the sugaring process, Steel Magnolias' baker-aestheticians apply a warm, all-natural sugar substrate to flagrant follicles that, when peeled away, leaves skin smooth and shiny for up to four weeks. Sugaring is effective on all skin types and hair textures and requires only 1/8 of an inch of growth to be glaze-worthy. Customers can choose to epilate any body part from faces ($50) to half legs ($40 and up) to full legs ($60 and up) to wooden legs (prices vary). After sugaring, clients should wait 24 hours before tanning and 12 hours before applying deodorant, makeup, or temporary pony tattoos.
If the comfortable atmosphere tempts you to stay beyond the bounds of your Groupon, Steel Magnolias' experienced aestheticians and massage therapists will happily offer a variety of professional spa treatments. With today's Groupon, let Steel Magnolias Spa and Boutique leaven your bitter body hairs with a little sweetness while you zone out on white-sheeted beds in a brightly lit environment as comforting and relaxing as a closet full of friendly skeletons.

Steel Magnolias Spa & Boutique
After watching her mother lose her fight with cancer, Lisa Glad promised to dedicate the rest of her life to helping others let go of pain and stress. So she became a massage therapist. She joins the team of Steel Magnolias Spa & Boutique, where all members work tirelessly to help both men and women relax with spa and skincare services. At the spa, aestheticians use Gentle Touch facial treatments, which blend high-tech skincare methods with natural ingredients, for custom facials that cleanse and exfoliate faces and favorite masquerade masks. In addition to Lisa's massages, the menu of services also includes body sugaring, a method of all-natural hair removal. After any service, clients can peruse a selection of wallets, handbags, jewelry, and skincare products in the spa's boutique.
