Shelly Cook, Salon 120's certified massage therapist, employs a slew of soothing massage techniques to release tension and help heal the body. A gentle Swedish session aims to reduce stress and unleash the skills needed to decipher certain animated chefs with long, light strokes. Deep-tissue massages target the inner muscle tissues with more intense kneading techniques than an army of kittens, and prenatal treatments pamper moms-to-be to prepare them for the muscular stress of scooping up babies the stork will soon leave on their doorsteps. Each massage is one hour and incorporates unscented oils, dim lighting, and soft, relaxing music.
As you might deduce from its name, Color Correction Salon's specialty lies in setting strands right after botched home dye jobs or summers spent touring with Jem and the Holograms. Owner Tom Sollock has taken his tinting talents to hair competitions around the world, picking up numerous awards and medals for his vibrant, cutting-edge designs. While color re-touch is a house specialty, its not uncommon to find clients leaving with shocking streaks of neon pink or electric blue, which the stylists create with top-quality pigments or clip-in extensions that offer all the pop without the permanence. In addition to cuts and color treatments, the salon welcomes the opportunity to makeover heads and faces for weddings and other special events, and frequently hosts kids parties complete with mini manicures, facials, and colored extensions for each pintsize guest.
Beyond a lime-hued door, beautifiers exercise their practiced digits on the hair of guests, who relax in the midst of black-and-white furnishings dotted with bright-green accents. Inside, stylists affix extensions, lop off hair, and cover strands in deep-conditioning serums.
The experienced stylists at Hair Rage deftly trim shining tresses and technicians pamper fingers and toes with expert nail services. During an initial hair consultation, clients meet with stylists to discuss which cuts will attractively frame their features or enhance the realism of a rubber Richard Nixon mask. Experienced fingers then massage scalps with nourishing shampoo at rows of sleek black sinks before stylists snip, style, and blow-dry tresses at a mirrored styling station. Alternatively, during a spa mani-pedi, techs will clip, shape, and polish finger and toenails after a warm, soothing footbath bubbles away stress and henna tattoos of old grocery lists.
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).
Nestled in the sunlit, arch-ceilinged airiness of a 1947 retrofitted home, Cameo Salon and Spa lavishes façades with renewing services and Éminence skincare products. During the 30-minute body scrub, the gentle nuzzling of a dry brush prods the release of dead skin cells before an aesthetician massages the body with a 100% organic coconut sugar scrub, complete with coconut oils that hydrate sallow skin like a lawn sprinkler at full blast. Next, hot towels or a warm shower refresh the body, and skin emerges renewed and ready for coatings of moisturizer to reanimate faded shells.
