Zebra-print couches, curtain-draped manicure coves, and funky lamps create a kid-friendly oasis where little ones can revel in some pampering with age-appropriate nailcare. Little Diva Spa is a licensed nail spa that gives kids their first taste of spa life without having to first get a reverse anti-aging facial. The attentive staff lavishes its diminutive clientele with manicures and pedicures with comforting flourishes such as bubble spa soaks, massages, and even ice-cream treats. Since it might be hard to pry kids out of the decked-out spa, they can spend a day reveling in a spa package or celebrate their birthday there, where groups of friends can kick back with manicures and pedicures, strut their stuff during the Little Diva Walk photo shoot, and leave with a set of polished nails. While lending children the full experience of a beauty salon, the technicians do not cut cuticles or use sharp instruments.
HoochiCoochi’s master aestheticians specialize in Brazilian waxes utilizing high-quality European blue hard wax for a more effective and less painful waxing experience. Clients can relax in the warm candlelit atmosphere with a complimentary glass of wine before an experienced waxing professional meticulously strips hair from the most nether of the nether regions. For Brazilian-wax first-timers, a pre-wax consultation is included to ensure their comfort, whether lady, gent, or a very lost Muppet. Because a male Boyzilian wax ($85+) costs more than the Brazilian, men looking to de-fur will need to pay the difference to take advantage of this Groupon.
“Hello beautiful.” This simple phrase adorns a sign that hangs near the entrance of Get Posh! Day Spa for Girls, but its significance goes far deeper than just decoration. For owner Jeanette Brown, it’s a call to action, telling each young client who walks through the door that her spa is a place where beauty treatments are less about impressing others and more about discovering your most likeable you. As black-and-white portraits of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe look on, clients indulge in treatments from the spa’s menu, which includes spa services for kids and adults, along with the spa’s specialty: themed spa parties for teens and tweens. During these get-togethers, Jeanette and her trained team can turn dreams into vivid reality, whether they’re organizing a fashion show where made-over young women learn to walk the runway and perform in a talent showcase or staging a princess-crowning party that features story time with a fairytale princess and tips on how to wave, curtsy, and swim through a moat without getting your tiara wet.
Many people work hard to earn recognition for having a PhD. For more than 15 years, P.H.D. Salon & Spa has worked hard to help clients get recognition for having a beautiful appearance. Stylists trim, color, and perm hair or add Mega Hair human-hair extensions. The salon and spa also whitens teeth, spray tans bodies, and removes evidence of wrestling on a freshly tarred road from skin. Clients who prefer one-stop beautifying stops will enjoy a selection of packages that pamper heads, hands, and feet with a variety of services, including facials, massages, or waxing treatments.
Because it's virtually impossible to style hair underwater, Style Bar has done the next best thing by setting up shop a short comb toss from the Atlantic Ocean. As the salty echoes of waves waft through the spa windows, skilled stylists transform hair with voluminous layers and bold color highlights. Guests may also request a relaxing facial or mani-pedi, or retreat to a private room for soothing hot-stone therapy from the salon's licensed massage therapist.
Exhale Spa seeks to transform its clientele inside and out. The founding team of fitness professionals and aestheticians sought to create an environment where they could empower visitors with pampering spa treatments, invigorating fitness classes, and lifestyle education, helping clients attain a sense of control and holistic balance. Now with 19 locations across 11 cities, Exhale Spa and its signature services have earned mentions in numerous national publications, including People magazine, the New York Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine.
Exhale's signature Core Fusion classes incorporate dance-inspired stretches, yoga poses, and Pilates exercises into total-body workouts that build long, lean limbs and sturdy abdominal muscles over time. For an even more varied workout, the instructors introduce boot-camp techniques, cardio exercises, or multiplication tables to select sessions. Yoga classes present a similar amount of breadth and variety, drawing inspiration from a number of introspective and physically oriented styles. To help hasten physical transformations, nutrition and wellness coaches teach attendees about the impacts of diet. These sessions build an awareness of healthy eating habits through custom meal plans and by teaching clients how to identify the edible parts of a fruit basket.
Many of the center's traditional spa services seek to inspire confidence. Facials pamper and refine skin using everything from green tea and fruit extracts to microcurrent technology, and mani-pedis revitalize digits before glazing nails with a vibrant new coat of color. Bodywork treatments look beyond physical relaxation and focus on holistic concerns. Massage therapists can use Eastern or Western modalities to soothe overstressed musculature, and acupuncture treatments and reiki sessions jump-start natural healing processes by encouraging the free flow of inner energies.
