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 style ($31–$38) 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 condition 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 ($60–$70), highlights ($80–$90), or a perm ($75–$85). Prices vary by location.
Though its name might suggest otherwise, Miracle Eyebrows works its magic on more than just one body part. But when it comes to eyebrows, staffers use a 6,000 year-old method to remove stray hairs by deftly manipulating simple cotton thread across the skin. Aside from threading, the studio also offers body waxing and traditional Henna tattoos.
All sorts of clients entrust their eyes to the team at Eye Care Specialists, P.C. Perhaps it’s because each member of the staff has been supplied with glasses or sunglasses from the optical boutique, allowing them to personally recommend frames and lenses for each customer. Customers also come there for the wide selection of frames from brands such as Gucci, Pro Design, Ray Ban, and more. For those who like to spend their time in the sun, progressive lenses and prescription sunglasses are also available.
When hairstylist Scott Schuman opened Illusions in 1990, he was joined by a team of cosmetologists and stylists who also happened to be his longtime friends. With this tight-knit crew in tow, Scott and his business partner, Teri, opened up the salon’s current location, a sun-drenched space with wooden floors and glimmering display cases filled with professional-grade hair products. The staffers, who consider themselves members of the same extended family, perform a wide array of salon services, from men’s and women’s cuts to color treatments and elegant updos suited for formal events or fancy games of laser tag.
The licensed therapists and aestheticians of Serenity Massage and Bodyworks practice their crafts within private treatment rooms, where mental and physical clarities intertwine during facials, body wraps, and the soothing massage therapies alluded to in the spa’s name. Massage therapists draw on a full repertoire of modalities—from the relaxing effleurage and percussion movements of Swedish massage to the focused, healing pressures of deep-tissue massage—to appease muscles knotted from sleeping on hard floors or Twister mats. Reiki healing techniques, which work to strengthen the bonds between mind, body, and spirit, best exemplify the massage therapists’ concern for holistic healing. Their aesthetician counterparts allow this same concern to inform their facials and body wraps, which call upon the detoxifying powers of vitamins and minerals to chase away impurities and blemishes.
