Offering a wide range of skincare and waxing services for men and women, Jolie Laide owner Jillian Brice and her skilled staff streamline skinsuits like a fleet of human Zambonis. Clients can choose to gloss over their lifemobile components with a 45-minute back purifying ($35), 20-minute eye treatment ($15), 45-minute skin therapy session ($75), and more. You can also apply your Groupon toward more pronounced pampering such as an aromatherapy saltscrub ($120) or an enzymatic mudwrap ($135). Being cocooned in super-mud (known in the biz as "beauty filth") also gives you more time to appreciate Jolie Laide's inviting atmosphere, spacious facilities, gentle pastel colors, and touches of retro décor.
For the pants-inclined, the StrandCafe offers a load of beautifying treatments for hair, nails, and skin. Welcome warm weather by keying up dull tresses with a color retouch ($50+).

Peel fingers out of gloves and toes out of boots for a mani-pedi shot ($30, solid polish only) or a full manicure and pedicure with massages, soothing scrub, and paraffin ($80). StrandCafe also mollycoddles mugs with indulgent facials ($50–$80) specially concocted for smoothing out men's rough edges, treating tender skin, and reworking other epidermal blights.
