Pampered Nail and Body Spa's new ownership and eco-friendly approach to beauty are marked by their use of all-natural and organic products. Your toxin-free, 70-minute mani-pedi will begin with a eucalyptus essential-oil soak, as well as a lime-coconut sugar scrub to renew your skin's moisture and attract plates of tilapia. Next, your hands will nestle into warm, heated mittens while a mint foot masque and hot-towel wrap tingles tired tootsies. A lime whipped-shea-butter massage will relax tight muscles, setting the stage for the phalange pièce de résistance: polish application in the color of your choice. This peaceful urban sanctuary urges reservations to ensure that the spa's trained doves have time to reorganize all of the nail polish by hue.
Amid the cozy decor of Salon Deon, expert stylist Kristal Perry can engineer bold highlights, condition the scalp, or sew in an elegant weave to flatter a client's features. Though she specializes in ethnic hair, Kristal styles coifs of every length and texture. Once their hair has been styled, clients can dip their toes into the salon's other beautification services, such as lash extensions that give eyes a more voluminous look without the mess of mascara.
A former nightclub, Club Kiss Salon & Spa still works hard to entertain its guests: they can drink virgin daiquiris, smoke hookahs, and watch live shows as well as getting beauty services. At the sleek, black bar with a white chandelier overhead, guests sip on virgin cocktails as staffers tend to nails. Exposed brick walls are now flanked with a row of white-framed mirrors for guests to admire new hairstyles thanks to cuts, weaves, and other styles. The salon also sells imported virgin hair—high-quality strands that keep the cuticle intact—for use in hair extensions and weaves.
Seena Owen donned the first false lashes for her 1916 film, Intolerance. The years that followed saw new lash-lengthening techniques used by celebrities and regular folks alike. Today, the techs at Eye Magic International craft glamorous lashes for everyday use that range from old-fashioned strips to semi-permanent strands applied one-by-one, which embolden lashes while maintaining a natural look. Eye Magic International's technicians also shape brows and keep skin fresh and clear with facials.
During the challenge, teams of two or more individuals will run helter-skelter around the city in a frantic race for cash prizes and personal pride, with a first-place award of $200. Not only will participants have to solve strands of interconnected clues that would test the deductive powers of even the most seasoned children's book detective, they'll need to plot spatiotemporal stratagems while exploring undiscovered corners of the city. Although being physically fit is a plus, quick wits and wise planning will ultimately determine the winners. Participation in the challenge gets contestants a clue packet, race-number bib, and T-shirt, and fees go toward the prize pool. The website offers a regular FAQ, as well as a Groupon FAQ detailing the intricacies of the race, what to wear the day of, why it's not okay to bring a boa constrictor, and more.
