For $30, you’ll get a quality grooming experience and hand detailing at American Male, a $63 to $68 value, depending on the location.

Your Groupon is good at American Male's Philadelphia and Berwyn locations. Get it for yourself or give the gift of male-sanctioned luxury.The Dream: You are bald. What It Means: You are worried about losing your hair, OR, if you are already bald, you are worried about losing your jet-ski business.
Modern wall sconces and full-wall windows cast glow on the salon's polished wood floors and cozy leather mani-pedi chairs. Here, with the precision and artistry of a thousand microscopic architects, nail techs meticulously renovate nails and adorn with basic and long-lasting Shellac color. As tired feet steep in a soothing pedicure bath, tension fades away, calluses soften, and nails prepare for custom nail art or sleek French tips. Clients may also solicit a skilled aesthetician to clear away unwanted hair from your face, body, or antlers during swift waxing sessions.
When the going gets tough, the tough get manicures. At least, that’s the view espoused by Pink Nails Day Spa, which strives to offer its clients rejuvenation through a variety of head-to-toe pampering services. As its name suggests, the spa specializes in nailcare, from classic manicures and pedicures to eye-catching airbrush designs. Table or chair massages work to disentangle muscular knots and banish tension, and facials address complexion concerns such as acne, sun damage, or irritated skin. Waxing treatments can put the final smoothing touch on bodies, clearing away unwanted hair and unsightly porcupine quills.
The goals of Chez Raina Salon's experienced staff are to build strong relationships with clients and provide them with exceptional beauty services. Inside the highly sanitized salon space, nail technicians doll up digits with mani-pedis and paraffin treatments. Stylists consult with their clients before cutting and highlighting manes to create whole new hairdos. The staff's aestheticians use waxing services and facials to soften the skin until it's smoother than Boyz II Men lounging in a pool of baby oil.
The intricately painted manicures created at Butterfly Nail Salon are about as unique as the colorings on a butterfly's wings. At one table, a technician might be painting acrylics with a modernity-inspired coat of white polish, while the next table might find a client gasping with delight over the cupcake-themed manicure on her natural nails. Pink-and-whites are popular here, as are no-chip gel polishes that, like robot butlers, are available in both traditional and neon hues.
