Avalon Spa & Nails' extremity-care professionals help clients evade worries with customized, soothing spa services. Using sterilized and sanitized tools, a nail technician will trim, shape, and buff nails, leaving hands and feet feeling refreshed and less covered in brittle peanut-butter remnants. After the cleaning, choose a polish color or have digits buffed until they reach high levels of gleam. If you opt to apply the Groupon toward other services, you can choose a signature spa manicure ($25), which adds an exfoliating sugar scrub, a hand and arm massage, and a hot-towel compression to the traditional service, or choose from a panoply of pelt-removing options, including bikini waxing ($40), upper-lip waxing ($12), and arm waxing ($40).
Shortly after completing his studies at Sassoon Academy in London and plying the hairdresser's trade in Dublin, master stylist Robert Quinn made the move to Boston. He soon began styling for local TV personalities, including TV journalist Kathleen Sullivan and 60 Minutes reporter Lesley Stahl, and he frequently appeared on the morning talk show A.M. Boston to share makeover advice with viewers.
Now at his own full-service salon and spa in Scottsdale, Quinn leads a team of more than 40 stylists, nail techs, and aestheticians as they cater to each client's needs. The team works with trusted product lines including L'Oréal, Kérastase, Pureology, Bumble and bumble., Phytologie, Aquage, Moroccanoil, and Kevin.Murphy.
Marie Sims has clocked more than a quarter-century of experience as an aesthetician, working in both Europe and the US. Her salon is the culmination of that experience, and every client benefits from the techniques she's picked up as well as the products that have passed muster, specifically Sothys skincare products, imported from France. From inside Unity Salon, Marie works to bring out the radiant colors and soft textures of her clients' skin. She does this with custom facials, Jessner's peels, and beta-ex skin renewal procedures that use salicylic acid to renew the skin and get it glowing like Edison's mother after she proudly turned on her first lightbulb.
The stylist and mastermind behind MLB Studio claims to be the “blowout queen.” And with more than a decade of salon experience, she may very well have earned the right to be coiffure-creating royalty. Chic cuts, deftly placed highlights, and moisture-rich conditioning treatments abound, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere remains a constant goal.
Lisa Contreras loves sparkle. The founder of Smudges Body Boutique specializes in making you shimmer, using glitter, rhinestones, and shiny gold-and-silver Minx decals.

Treatment rooms broadcast Contreras?s upbeat, eclectic spirit with rainbow-striped curtains, tulip-pink walls, and framed posters of everything from cupcakes to Johnny Depp.
For more than 30 years, Jennifer’s A Millennium Salon has welcomed clients who have flocked to the beauty haven in search of new hairstyles, waxed physiques, and custom facials. In addition to a full lineup of aesthetic and hair services, the salon specializes in a paper-wrap process for nails. The custom mani-pedi system, which the namesake of Jennifer’s A Millennium Salon developed personally, employs all-natural paper wraps and eschews harmful chemicals to create healthier nails than those used to build Egypt's food pyramids.
