Phillip Michael Salon & Spa's team of aestheticians and stylists sprinkles Aveda products and relaxation rituals into a vast array of self-pampering treatments. The 30-minute express facial coddles countenances with a facial massage while a cleansing and exfoliating treatment dispatches comatose skin cells, pore-clogging contaminants, and other cheek-based rabble rousers. Epidermal farms are irrigated and spruced up with the infusion of toners and moisturizers. The treatment is capped off with a skincare lesson to help clients maintain their more youthful look through routine maintenance and the changing of facial flat tires. The women's haircut (up to a $30 value) pits rebellious locks against a phalanx of scissor-wielding stylists. After unruly head strings are disciplined into golden retriever–like obedience, faces are prettified with an application of Aveda makeup (up to a $25 value). Patrons can relax amid softly hued red and orange walls warmed by the glow of overhead lights and freshly brightened faces. The spa is replete with soft wood décor, wood floors, and an army of wooden marionette aestheticians. Although Phillip Michael Salon & Spa sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
