The beauty mavens at GiGi Aveda Salon Spa continually uncover fresh trends and learning techniques to revitalize clients with Aveda's organic tonics. Classic spa facials begin with Aveda's Elemental Nature consultation, which helps skin therapists assess epidermal concerns before devising a customized course of treatment. Next, those immersed in the face-and-hand treatment submerge their rough palms and stiff finger puppets into a warm paraffin-wax bath. Technicians finish by trimming nails and cuticles and crowning newly supple mitts with bright OPI lacquer.
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, and lean back and dream of breakdancing 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 (starting at $52), highlights (starting at $75), or a perm (starting at $75).
The aestheticians at Artistique Wow Browz enhance their clients’ appearances with precision eyebrow threading, facials, and makeup application. Threading techs swiftly work a cotton thread back and forth to remove stray hairs and shape eyebrows into elegant curves, angles, or expressive semicolons. The four- to five-minute procedure is precise enough to target even miniscule hairs and is gentle enough to sidestep the irritation and swelling often experienced after facial waxing with duct tape. Newly sculpted eyebrows or eyelashes can be tinted, and threading can also be done anywhere on the face. For the rest of the body, the salon's aestheticians apply solar or acrylic nails and wax off body hair.
The staff at Results Skin Care Center uses the Candela GentleLASE, a high-energy, long-pulse laser, to evict stray strands from all skin types. Each successive 30- to 60-minute hair-removal session will lessen the amount of hair. Because the hair root has to be present for the best results, treatments should ideally be spaced every four to five weeks, and hair should not be plucked or waxed for two weeks prior to the treatment. Slight discomfort at the treatment site is common; feel free to ask about a topical anesthetic. For more frequently asked questions, click here.
Oregon Nails’s focus may be on the fingers and toes, but the salon takes indulgence way beyond the digits. For an example, look no further than the deluxe pedicure—a two-stage sea salt scrub, hydro mask, hot stone massage, and warm towel application are included in the package along with traditional nail care. Oregon Nails offers everything from acrylic to solar and gelish nails. And beyond their core nail services, they render waxing and moisturizing facials, often favored by dogs after a long day of sniffing sandpaper.
