Dermalogica skincare treatments include an exfoliating botanical peel and facials enhanced by firming seaweed and anti-aging caviar masks. Clients can also indulge in mani-pedis with skin-softening paraffin wraps and invigorating sugar scrubs, as well as shellac polish, which stays chip-free for up to 14 days no matter how many times they run their fingers through a coworker's luxurious hair.

After a visit to the pros at Extravaganza Nails and Spa, you might find your daily beauty routine drastically shortened.

When Luna Labarca-Norris opened Sweet Escape Salon, she sought to bring her extensive education from institutes such as Matrix, Goldwell, and Tigi to the heads and hairs of men, women, and children. She and her duo of diligent stylists always begin each cut or coloring session with a consultation that uses a mixture of photographs, conversation, and flashcards of salon vocabulary to ensure that clients achieve the look they covet. The hairdressers' expertise lies particularly in advanced coloring techniques such as balyage or multidimensional highlights.
The funky, modern interior sports huge, brightly painted portraits and a pattern of bold, black-and-white paisley on walls, throw pillows, and furniture.

Aches and pains evaporate as the hands of licensed massage therapist LeAnn McDonald sweep over muscles for Swedish or firm-pressure massages. While noses drink in aromatherapy through their nostril-mouths, LeAnn's targeted kneading unravels the knots in torsos that form when the topsail attached to the spine gets tangled in the rigging near the ribs. Clients may also request LeAnne's mobile spray-tanning services for off-site bronzing.
Colorlocks' expert hair strengtheners and shaders build body in flat manes with the Awapuhi hair treatment, named Best Wave Enhancer in Allure magazine's 2010 Best of Beauty awards. A stylist will de-kink coifs, turning frizzy nests into waves silky and smooth enough to inspire a jealous slam ballad by Michael Bolton. Paul Mitchell's Awapuhi products wrangle wild ginger to daintily deck strands with greater volume and well-defined waves. Though not included in this Groupon, Awapuhi shampoos and rinses are available for at-home use, so manes can retain their beachy billows without sleeping in conch-shell curlers.
