Sarah Rattet, owner of Vitality Spa and Yoga Studio and master aesthetician, supplements her beautifying procedures with stress-busting yoga classes and holistic spa and medical aesthetic treatments. It all happens in a serene spa environment where students learn such practices as gentle Hatha yoga, silk-suspended aerial yoga, and candle-lit evening classes that maximize tranquility and scare off the Boogeyman. And the spa cultivates an outer as well as an inner glow with waxing from brow to bikini line and specialized facial salves rich in vitamin C harvested from the smoothest-skinned oranges.
The Great Clips empire spans more than 3,000 salons across North America, where a collective of over 30,000 stylists wait, ready to tend to hairstyles. At these salons, no appointments are necessary—though an online check-in system aids those who wish to skip any potential lines by adding their names directly to the haircut queue. And to aid their new hairstyles, customers can peruse a line of gels, conditioners, pomades, and tea-tree oil shampoos and body washes.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists; use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry, and lean back and dream of breakdancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring (starting at $52), highlights (starting at $75), or a perm (starting at $75).
Each of Above and Beyond Hair and Nail Salon’s three stylists excels in a different facet of hairstyling. While salon owner and manager Debbie brandishes her 25 years of experience and the occasional pair of scissors to revive lifeless strands with fresh styles, co-owner Jerica specializes in fancy up-dos. The trio continually updates their skill sets and arsenal of hair colors in accordance with ever-changing industry trends, and stock the salon's shelves with products from brand-name hair care lines so clients can replicate their looks at home or in any car equipped with a blow-drier.
