Mane Tamers' hair aficionados have treated stressed tresses with a combination of aesthetic and pampering services for more than a quarter-century. During a thorough headscaping, male and female follicles undergo a scalp-massaging shampoo, which soothes strands while convincing them to confide world-domination schemes and aesthetic ambitions. Then stylists cut cranial carpet to specifications ($35 women/$25 men) before gifting scalps a deep-conditioning treatment ($25) to help imbue locks with a healthy sheen. For women, the one-hour salon stay concludes with an eyebrow shaping ($13), where facial terraformers sculpt eye adornments in accentuating arches, dashes, or lightning bolts. Meanwhile, a grooming package shears ($13) male facial manes to appropriate lengths. Mane Tamers makes up the haircut cost difference with a $10 gift card for the next manly follicle feng shui session.

Inside Simply Irresistible, expert nail tech and independent contractor Maria Mock keeps phalanges looking polished with more than 20 years of nail-care experience, a skill she has taught throughout the world. Maria’s dexterous fingers coax tension and miniature squadrons of army men out of feet during soothing pedicures, which treat parched two-steppers to several gulps of lotion. After whittling nails to desired forms, Maria dresses them up with a glitzy layer of polish. The spa Shellac manicure similarly dotes on hands with a massage but goes the extra mile by sloughing off dead skin cells and sealing in moisture with an exfoliation and paraffin hand dip. Maria files talons into shape and finishes with a coat of durable, high-gloss Shellac, which, like a sugar-cookie purist, resists chips. Groupon-holders can upgrade to a french Shellac manicure or a regular french polish pedicure for an additional $5.
