Peter David Salon is a New York City?chic salon in the heart of Connecticut, where master and junior stylists work in a mod environment to create inventive and on-trend hairstyles for both men and women. Cuts, rich color, and texture treatments are all on the service menu, and the styling atmosphere is bustling and professional. Come in for a permanently smoothing keratin treatment, have stylish ombre color light up the ends of hair, or have an updo twirled into place for a big night out. K?rastase products help hair look its best as clients enjoy the posh white leather furnishings and spacious, light-filled studio.
The talented tress trimmers at Salon Refuge fashion follicles into stylish shapes using fresh techniques and an in-depth knowledge of current trends. During the Brazilian keratin treatment, stylists wrestle down unruly curls by applying formaldehyde- and aldehyde-free Cadiveu products to smooth cuticles and resolve long-standing squabbles between hair and combs. Clients can also trade a hairdon’t for a new hairdo with the cut-and-color combo, which begins with a customized shampoo and conditioning treatment, followed by an expert cut and style (a $50 value) and a professional color retouching (a $50 value) to add a fourth dimension of dazzle to any look. Groupon customers who choose the first option will also receive 20% off any post-treatment products purchased on the same day.
To be a successful massage therapist, you don't necessarily have to have worked in the medical field for more than two decades, but it can't hurt. As a radiological technician for the more than 25 years, Pam Butler possesses a deep understanding of both the musculoskeletal system and ways to turn hospital gloves into balloon animals. Today, she is a board-certified massage therapist working with Studio B Brow Bar and Body Studio and an arsenal of modalities at her disposal. She uses indulgent treatments such as Swedish and hot-stone massages, as well as more-targeted techniques, such as deep-tissue and energy work, to help bring about a variety of benefits, both mental and physical.
The brow specialist at Studio B Brow Bar and Body Studio crafts sleek looks by creating simple arches to frame clients' eyes. The technician also can wax unwanted hair from cheeks, upper lips, and underarms, and a massage therapist treats muscles aches with six different modalities including hot-stone massage and myofascial release. In addition, manicures with regular or long-lasting Shellac polishes add a burst of color to fingertips or help nails camouflage against the cottage-like studio's lemon-yellow exterior.
Tommy’s Tanning offers customers more than two dozen bronzing options, from single-session spray tans for special occasions to yearly memberships inside five levels of tanning beds. The vertical and horizontal beds imbue skin with color while cooling faces and playing music for a more comfortable tanning session. For UV-free color, VersaSpa spray-tanning booths coat the skin in a streak-free glow, all while the client stands in a comfortable, wide-open interior.
A certain hominess shines through at JoBella Salon and Spa. The shop is named for the co-owner’s children, Joe and Bella, and the Branford location is nestled inside a two-story house surrounded by trees and green grass. Skilled stylists and aestheticians at both locations tap into an arsenal of elixirs from Arrojo and skincare products by Aveda. When they aren't beautifying clients from the neck up, they primp nails, knead sinews, and leave legs wrapped in seaweed like a sleeping sushi chef.
