Body Options' seasoned follicle wranglers restore order to unruly nether-feathers with Brazilian waxes that pave the way for smooth epidermal real estate. During the waxing session, which lasts 40 to 90 minutes depending on each individual’s situation, an aesthetician whisks away all present fuzz from below-the-belt regions of both men and women. Waxing provides a longer-lasting hairlessness than shaving, and when the hair does come back after a few weeks, it's meek, soft, and easily scared back into the follicle with banging pans or the threat of another round of wax. While waiting for their treatments, spa-goers can take a load off in Body Options' earthy setting marked by cushy brown couches, pendulous plants, and glowing sconces.
Nails that aren't properly cared for may rebel by chipping, discoloring, or pursuing careers in theater. That's where the Happy Nails team comes in. Skilled technicians shape nails, care for cuticles, and decorate to keep first impressions positive. The salon's polish inventory is diverse and includes Bio Seaweed Gel, which offers durable semipermanent color without damaging nail plates. Guests may also receive beautifying services such as waxing and eyelash extensions.
In 2000, Doctor of Chiropractic William A. Straughn moved his self-named practice to Florissant, the place where he was born and raised and where his grandmother still lives. This move enabled him to serve the people of his hometown who suffer from chronic lower-back and neck pain or who need to regain their footing after an accident or injury. Dr. Straughn and his staff also teach patients how they can improve their diets and how to incorporate healthy habits into their workdays, such as doing jumping jacks in a crowded elevator or sprinting full speed to the restroom.
Pretty N Posh adds panache to traditional teen and preteen pastimes with confidence-boosting mani-pedis, performed within a girly, multicolored salon space ($30 each). Catering to divas age 17 and under, Pretty N Posh lets young ladies upkeep their limbs with a one-hour ice-cream-sundae mani-pedi, which employs hypoallergenic ME! Bath products and begins with a relaxing hand and foot soak in chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla ice-cream-shaped bath salts.
The skin-shading specialists at Pacific Beach bestow bodies with smooth bronze hues in VersaSpa spray-tanning booths. A tanning consultant greets newcomers by shepherding patrons to the booth and demonstrating the correct four positions to optimize spray application and mock the sun like a heckling astronaut. As tanners stand in the heated booth, a nozzle spray coats the body with one of three shades of pulchritudinous hues, adding instant color that develops further within 4–6 hours. The sun-smooched look generally lasts from 7–10 days, about the amount of time it takes to cultivate a magic bean. Though it is not included in this Groupon, an amplifier helps balance out the skin's PH level ($5 packet) and moisturizing mist ($3) may seal in the skin-brightening effect.
When the new owners of Shear Style Salon took over in early 2012, they transformed the hair and nail salon into a full-service beauty emporium. Though sleek styling services and mani-pedis continue to anchor the menu, the spa’s team of aestheticians now tends to skin across the body with luxurious facials and scrubs.
The expert aestheticians at Par Excellence Salon & Spa give a shot in the arm to self-confidence with transformative cut and color treatments and semipermanent lash extensions. They use vinegar and essential oils to balance the skin's PH during restorative nail sessions. Guests may also request a swift facial wax or acrylic nails with unique designs such as cherries, dolphins, or your social security number.
