At Studio 1211, Barbara George taps into ancient Eastern and Egyptian techniques to soothe and beautify patrons. Inside a private treatment room, she aims to relieve pain and improve the nervous system with reflexology and shiatsu that applies focused pressure to mapped-out areas along the feet, scalp, and neck. The aromatherapy educator boasts 20 years of anti-aging product experience; during the spa's signature Egyptian facial, a milk-and-honey mask makes visages gleam back to life, wrinkles collapse into whispers, and cows and bees look on in bewilderment.
From the bottoms of your feet to the top of your head, Symmetry Salon shines a beautifying spotlight on every feature. Haircuts and coloring yield fresh new hairdos, while mani-pedis include beverages for clients to sip on as their digits are buffed, exfoliated, massaged, and polished. Aestheticians even complexions with European facials and massage therapists use peri-natal, deep-tissue, and Swedish massages to loosen gridlocked muscles.
In the salon's modern interior, curved expanses of hardwood flooring flow beneath black-leather styling seats, and mirrors set in sleek wood panels reflect the light of mushroom-like hanging lamps. Waiting clients can enjoy the lounge's full bar service while reclining on a retro sofa with smooth, clean lines or use a complimentary iPad to order products (not included in today's Groupon), create their own client profile, or conduct last-minute research on pompadour styles.
Voted Kansas City's Best Barber in 2008 and 2009 by CityVoter, The Men's Locker Room provides guy-focused haircare and spa services in a comfortable, masculine atmosphere. Heads opting for the First Down haircut are first ensconced in the classic, black-leather barber chairs, reposing in regal fashion while the professional barbers shape and style hair into conservative buzzes or grandiose pompadours, perfect for taking the wind out of an Elvis-impersonating cousin's sails at an upcoming family reunion. Lip-adorning mustaches are trimmed and groomed as well, eliminating loose hairs and long-forgotten pie crumbs from a handlebar's shag. Cuts finish up in old-school style with a brush of powder around the neck, a choice of oil sheen or styling gel, and a splash of Clubman Special Reserve aftershave cologne.
A guy-centric salon that's been featured on the Today Show, Knockouts Haircuts for Men snips manly locks and doles out game-changing styles from within a boxing ring. Knockouts' Heavyweight cut includes a consultation and a shampoo both before and after hair lawns are satisfactorily edged and trimmed. While mitts tote complimentary beverages and eyes absorb the sporty flashes on flat-screen TVs, scalps melt under a tension-erasing, invigorating massage. Finally, freshly cut follicles are styled atop waiting heads before being released with an appealing new look and one nametag identifying the recipient as "Movie Actor Harrison Ford."
The style stalwarts at Supercuts have trimmed, toned, and honed the domes of hair-bearing hominids for decades. Walk-ins and waltz-ins are always welcome seven days a week at any of Supercuts' convenient locations. The experienced stylists can accommodate cuts ranging from quick, careful mop maintenance to a more buzzworthy beehive for hypnotizing local grizzlies. Each scissor-handed specialist will draw from a vat of experience, leveraging quality hair products from Paul Mitchell and others to infuse your filaments with a winsome glow and creative coiffure. Feel free to stockpile up to three Groupons to ensure a series of sure-fire cuts before snow-spooked wallets retreat into prolonged hibernation.
