Wielding hair-hostile lasers, the professional technicians at Choice MedSpa banish brazen bristles to uncover smoother, softer skin underneath. Unlike creams, tweezers, and other temporary hedging solutions, laser technology actually disables future growth, lessening frizzies’ abilities to form spooky five o'clock shadow puppets in the middle of the night. Groupon holders can employ Choice staffers to delicately and carefully rid their skin of follicle frenemies hiding in underarms ($125/session) or camping out on the bikini line ($140/session), chin ($85/session), upper lip ($75/session), or lower nose. While this Groupon is only valid for these listed rough regions, upgrades are available for an additional fee. All three sessions must be devoted to one treatment area.
Sunpiper Skin & Body Center's face fixers keep countenances well-constructed and coifs cosmetically pleasing. Under the guidance of senior hair designer Joseph Wilhelm, Sunpiper's scissor slingers redo overdone 'dos, opening each women's cut (a $38 value) with a cleansing shampoo before snipping away split ends, frizz, and nesting scalp sloths. Defoliation of hirsute heads continues during an eyebrow waxing (up to a $15 value), as aesthetic sculptors shape away fiendish forehead follicles in exchange for more fetching eyeworms. Sunpiper concludes the comprehensive grill-gussying with an express radiance facial (a $40 value), a 25-minute beauty boost that combines cleansing, toning, exfoliation, and moisturizing for a swift splash of skin-strength using only vitamin-rich, gravy-less skin products.
When Angelica Holmes and Kelly Welch—both mothers working to raise their young families—met, they were excited to find someone who shared their parenting experiences. Soon, however, the pals began to realize that motherhood had allowed them to forget to take care of themselves. Eager to rectify this, the pair morphed into business partners and founded Better in Colour Spa as a means of creating a place where busy women would have permission to do something nice for themselves.
Throughout the day, the store’s affable staffers stock shelves with mineral cosmetics from high-quality brands such as Bella Terra. A licensed retailer of Amika and Herstyler haircare products, Better in Colour Spa’s experts help shoppers find potions suitable for their individual tress types. The store’s licensed dental hygienist also helps brighten patients' smiles with in-store teeth-whitening treatments that render teeth pearly white for 12–24 months, unlike most New Year's resolutions.
In honor of Women’s History Month, Groupon is celebrating an inspiring group of women: business leaders whose companies and brands enrich their communities. Thanks to the dedication and ingenuity of these leaders, local communities across the country are stronger and more diverse.

Gwen Sinclair always had the calling to help people. Her father had bounced back from severe back surgery in a matter of weeks and attributed his speedy recovery to the healing power found in his twice-monthly massage. That sealed the deal for Sinclair; after completing massage-therapy school, she opened Gwen of All Trades.
As their treatments begin in this cozy 110 year-old renovated house, massage clients settle into a plush leather chair while Sinclair consults with them about their treatment goals. She keeps a careful eye on clients as she administers a variety of massage strokes, watching for breathing patterns that tell her whether she's gone too far or whether they are reciting lines from South Pacific under their breath.
Above all else, Gwen comes to work in search of more success stories. Her favorite involves a client who exited the treatment room post-session by hopping on one foot. When Sinclair questioned her gait, the client gave a triumphant smile before telling her that, before the massage, she wasn't able to put pressure on that foot! Her limp banished, the client is now a massage true believer and continues to hops into and out of Sinclair's treatment room once a month.
Each staff member at All About You Salon & Day Spa kicks in some specific expertise, allowing them to work together in the pursuit of beauty and health. Stylists cut and color hair and mold manes into classy updos before patrons go to important photo shoots or get their heads stuck through the bannisters at the White House. Aestheticians armed with wax remove unwanted patches of fuzz and wield gentle chemical solutions to even out skin tones during peels. Drawing on five distinct modalities, including deep tissue and reflexology, massage therapists elicit happy sighs. A weight-loss specialist visits the salon once a week to help customize fitness programs for patrons.
