Exquisite Threading's eyebrow-fashioning operation is led by a team of certified threaders plying their art in a soothing environment. Brow bearers seeking a refined look recline in the studio's comfy chairs as expert weavers adroitly lasso loitering hairs, expelling them at the root. A natural and chemical-free treatment, threading spares patrons much of the discomfort, swelling, and redness of waxing. After the shaping session, clients leave with a set of suave eyebrows to suit their countenance, making for crisper smiles and frowns less prone to getting stuck upside down. A second treatment after three to four weeks keeps disciplined forethreads in line.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists. Use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry ($19–$32) and lean back and dream of break-dancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head-hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring ($50–$65), highlights ($65–$100), or a perm ($65–$85). Prices vary by location.
Strength of the Hands' logo has ten fingers, and the staff offers almost as many types of massage. Deep-tissue melts away aches with firm pressure, while Swedish involves long, flowing strokes. The seven massage therapists also specialize in the soothing heat of hot towel massage and assuage the pains of expectant mothers with prenatal massage. Beautification is just as important as relaxation, as the service menu also includes facials, body waxing, and barnacle removal.
At Total Wellness Massage, clients often relax so deeply that they fall asleep on the table—and not only the ones who are there for a relaxation massage.

Integrative massage techniques allow her to access deep layers of tissue without causing pain, so she can achieve therapeutic goals with lighter strokes. During each session, she applies advanced techniques such as myofascial release, trigger-point therapy, and active/passive range of motion to address each client's individual needs.
