Cerón Salon, which uses L'Oréal Kerastase products for its strand-sculpting services, was a 2009 InStyle Beauty Blackbook pick for haircut. The salon's eponymous owner has studied in France under Europe's top stylists and worked with a slew of starlets, from Eva Longoria-Parker and Cindy Crawford to Lady Gaga. Entrust your locks to his fleet of deft-scissored stylists for an up-to-date coif chopping, then let them blow in a bouncy style. Next, while you recline in a black leather armchair, a friendly aesthetician will give your finger and toe helmets the gleaming finish, smooth edges, and lack of roofing tar they deserve. The facial included with this package packs the rejuvenating punch of a steaming Icelandic geothermal vent; it delves deep into pores to rid them of gunk and grime and infuse them with moisture and self-esteem, making skin soft, firm, and radiant.
Mark Berry of My Dallas Massage aims to banish stress and pain from the body with the healing power of touch. Adept at many kneading modalities, Mark has studied anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology in order to facilitate his two-pronged approach to pain management: temporary relief followed by a more permanent solution. His knowledge of the human form helps him ease muscular aches as well as other sources of discomfort, including headaches, neck pain, shoulder problems, and allergies caused by huffing the cat.
Boutique DeShon’s talented eyelash artists call upon both individual and flare lashes to beautify their clients’ blinks. With three looks that range from natural to movie star, they help shave time off morning makeup regimes. Products for aftercare extend the life of the extensions.
A duo of aestheticians invites visitors to sidle up to their Downtown Beauty Bar, where they beautify bodies with an array of services. "My focus is healthy skin [and] how to improve your skin," the owner says. The pair pursues this end through facials, peels, and body wraps enhanced by massage and fueled by Dermalogica products. When not attending to the dermis, they turn their attention to body hair, waxing away unwanted tufts or accenting eyelashes with crystal-tipped extensions, an excellent way to confuse people into believing it’s snowing out.
The Skin Bar's founder and enthusiastic lead aesthetician Christy Sample pampers faces and bodies inside private treatment rooms. Her facials cater to most skin types, and can help clients combat oily, acne-prone skin or turn back time with tightening and firming face creams. Christy's hands also melt away physical and emotional tension with Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, and couples massages, and gently free bodies of unwanted bristles with warm wax and quick swipes of a cloth strip.
A conglomerate of independent dental practices, Crown Council’s tooth-care professionals offer a full selection of cosmetic, sedation, and general dentistry procedures. Make mouth pearls shine up to eight times whiter than before with a fast and safe Zoom! teeth whitening treatment.

A set of take-home bleaching trays is also included to extend the whitening effect. One third of Crown Council’s proceeds from today’s Groupon will benefit Smiles for Life, a foundation that raises money for children’s charities.
