Airbrush technician Brooke has spent the last five years transforming pallid bodies into bronzed statues. She creates a custom formula for each of her clients inside Enve Salon, and can also take her equipment on the road for mobile airbrushing parties inside homes or train depots.
Leafy fronds fronds line the earth-toned walls of Salon Salon's long, narrow space, recalling the plant-based ingredients of the Aveda products used by its stylists to pamper clients' tresses. Owner and lead stylist Mike Manchester wields 28 years of experience to educate his staff, which includes a licensed cosmetologist who works at a well-stocked makeup bar. Appointments commence with free consultations, and coiffeurs accommodate busy schedules.
At Blaze Color Salon, skilled stylists revamp hairdos with a litany of services and Blaze's own line of vegan products. Guests can arrive prepared with a magazine clip of their desired look, pick one on the spot from the shop's style book, or opt to model their cut after the neighborhood bearded dragon. Either way, a professional scissors wielder snips away excess or troublesome strands, giving fickle manes an aesthetic purpose. During the blow-dry and finishing session, the stylist employs curling-iron or flatiron techniques before keeping scalp noodles in place with a serving of humidity-resistant, sunscreen-infused product.
Since 2008, the deft employees at Perfect Brow Bars have been manicuring arches with ancient Asian threading techniques. Stationed in malls throughout the central U.S., they welcome guests to stores and kiosks where string and manual finesse, rather than wax or tweezers, uproot unwanted facial hair. The method twists thread along the strands to methodically pull them from follicles with minimal discomfort. This approach reduces the risk of redness and ingrown hairs while forcing former unibrows to become wistful pen pals. Staff members can clear brows, sideburns, chins, and other facial zones of bothersome fuzz for a neatly groomed look.

Whisking away bespotted garments and returning fresh garb, Sunshine provides Iowa City with impressively convenient pickup and delivery laundry services. Trundle off apparel for sudsy vacations from anywhere in Iowa City, Coralville, or North Liberty (30 lbs minimum of laundry for pickup/delivery). Services cost $1.50 per pound of laundry, falling to $1 after 50 pounds. Customers with blazers requiring extra coddling and shirts that need sleeve-holding can visit the store and cleanse clothing using the self-service laundry machines. An attendant is always on duty to help to wrangle rebellious trousers. Though not included with this Groupon, patrons dropping off or self-scrubbing their threads can while away the minutes at the shop's tanning salon or in-store cafe, sating hunger with java, smoothies, or sandwiches as garments do the rinse-cycle tango.
Willow Day Spa owner Brooke Hodge has every corner of beauty covered. She is not only a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician but also a NovaLash eyelash extensionist and is trained in oncology spa treatments. Since opening the doors to Willow Day Spa, Brooke and her team of beauticians have relied on all-natural product lines, Tecniche and Pevonia, to gently yet effectively keep complexions looking young. The spa's aestheticians call upon seven different facial treatments, including LED light therapy and microdermabrasion, and remove unwanted hairs with antibacterial Nufree wax, which doesn’t irritate the skin by leaving behind a residue or its pager number. Cellulite and dehydration are banished with the help of mango-passion yogurt and green coffee-infused body treatments, and the menu's organic airbrush spray tan is designed to last for up to one week.
Brooke is able to help cancer patients and survivors maintain their appearance with oncology spa treatments that include reflexology and a facial. Her treatments combine the Morag Currin Method of Oncology Esthetics with fragrance-free Tecniche products. The beauty haven also outfits clients with a wide range of Raquel Welch and Eva Gabor wigs during private, complimentary consultations.
