The Boulevard Salon & Spa deploys experienced stylists to deftly slice hairs from men's chins, cheeks, and heads. Guests recline in barber chairs while pre-shave oil and hot lather swaddle mugs in toasty foam, giving visages a glimpse into the brief life of a cappuccino. A keen-edged straight razor slides along the face to efficiently remove stubble. In the Executive shave, the razor doubles back for a second voyage against the grain, smoothing skin with a thoroughness comparable to double Zamboni treatments for ice rinks or double vacuumings of molting tropical birds. Frosty aftershave and an ice-cold towel seal pores and soothe sensitive dimples, and a face massage dissipates tension from overworked, skeptical eyebrows. Alternately, patrons can opt for a haircut and single shave that foregoes the razor's return visit. A consultation ensures that head bristles will be cropped to specifications using Kenra and L'Oreal professional products, and a hot towel—aided by a head-and-neck massage—steams shoulders into a relaxed slump.
This Aveda salon is supervised by Dawn Caldwell and Kristy Heron, who have more than three decades of salon- and spa-industry experience between them. Dawn specializes in hair color, much like a chameleon perched on a Sasquatch's shoulder, and Kristy is a massage therapist, who also wields a master’s in acupuncture to free up disruptive energy blockages. The duo teams up with a staff of aestheticians, nail technicians, and stylists to treat guests to facials, acupuncture, massages, and salon treatments.

Posh Hair Studio’s experienced massage therapist channels a variety of massage methods to pinpoint and relieve stress and pain. After consulting with the client to determine the most suitable massage treatment, the experienced massage therapist will tease tension into oblivion with one of five massage techniques. Reflexology massages (a $59 value) prod specific reflex areas to stimulate body organs and induce good vibes, and deep-tissue treatments (a $59 value) apply firm and focused pressure to alleviate pains and turn unused body carbon into diamonds. Myofascials (a $69 value) unleash sustained force to soothe muscles hidden deep below connective tissue, and, through a heavy dose of kneading, prenatal massages (a $69 value) free mothers-to-be from pregnancy pains and, at 38 weeks of gestation, may induce labor. Although additional services are not included with today’s Groupon, customers can apply this value of this deal toward optional upgrades such as warm Prossage oil or cooling Biofreeze topical application ($6+ each or $10+ for both).
