Along with a decade of beauty-industry experience, The Getaway Salon and Beauty Bar's owner, Irish Nason, pours a lifetime of passion into her "once a dream, now a reality" full-service salon. The home-like space, bedecked with shabby-chic decor and soft pastel hues, invites clients of all ages into a beauty haven where friendly stylists snip and clip strands into flattering ’dos. The hair mavens can further beautify coifs with an all-over color, highlights, or Keratin Complex treatment. The beauty team also assists with bodily evictions—ousting hair with wax and banishing tension with tailored massages.
Since she opened her first salon at the tender age of 19, Susan Lowell has accumulated 40 years of experience in the beautifying business. Joined by her daughter Ashley Lowell, who has been a stylist and nail technician since 2009, today Susan oversees the strand-pampering crew at her eponymous beauty parlor, Susie's Salon and Barbershop. Within its walls, stylists perform haircuts, color locks with foils and highlights, and swirl curls into updos for special events. Meanwhile, nail techs bend diligently over fingers and toes, buffing and shaping nails before swathing skin in mineral-rich paraffin dips or moisturizing serums distilled from pure compliments.
Though licensed massage therapist Julie Arbogast runs the show alone at Touch of Serenity, she tackles a wide scope of ailments related to stress or injury. She draws upon years of experience as she practices gentle modalities such as Swedish and prenatal massage, as well as hot-stone treatments that help to melt tension and ice-cream headaches. Deep-tissue massages soften overused muscles, increasing range of motion and decreasing pain.
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).
