Female-owned-and-operated since 1999, Fondue Body Piercing & Tattoo adorns epidermises with ink and jewelry in its clean, safe, and welcoming storefront. A member of Fondue's team of experienced tattoo artists leads clients past vivid pink- and orange-painted brick walls into private rooms, where an arsenal of professional tools await their next body art project. Fondue's extensive portfolio of past skin-borne masterpieces ($40+) includes scripted phrases, personal photograph renderings, and original designs of mythical creatures, such as unicorns and Norman Mailer. Body piercings ($20+, includes jewelry) add sparkle and additional aeration to dull body surfaces, from simple ear and nose studs, to clavicle piercings and ear gauging. The boutique also stocks an array of jewelry, men's and women's clothing, hookahs, purses, and other accessories, which are only redeemable with this Groupon when a tattoo or piercing is purchased.
Amethyst Spa & Salon was founded in 1973 by Yvonne Wilson, who continues to own and operate the center. A licensed aesthetician and holistic practitioner, she has carved out a space where creature comforts tend to the spirit while practitioners tend to the body. Upon arrival, clients are invited to slip into a comfy full-length robe and sip on a complimentary beverage. After treatments, they can relax in the lounge, where soft music, a fireplace, and beverages prolong the effects of their treatment and delay a return to the outside world and to still-unfinished Yahtzee games in their 19th hours.
Of course, it's what happens between those bookend spa moments in that has kept Amethyst in business for more than 40 years. Clients indulge in a deluxe power repair facial, its fruit enzyme exfoliants coaxing radiant colours from the skin. Or, they revel in a warm seaweed and mineral mud wrap, during which botanical extracts send aromas into the air while nourishing ingredients work their magic. The spa also features manicures and pedicures, a salt cave, and a thermo acupressure massage bed.
The eponymous skincare specialist at SkinCare by Loretta may offer all sorts of facial treatments, but her specialty isn’t pampering the face—it’s Brazilian waxing. Using just a bit of warm wax and some muslin strips, Loretta can swiftly remove hairs from every inch of the bikini area, front and back. Clients not ready to go completely bare can opt instead for a regular bikini wax, or something simpler, such as brow shaping. Beyond waxing, Loretta administers PCA Skin and Skin Script RX treatments, such as fruit-enzyme peels available in varieties such as cranberry, pomegranate, or pumpkin-orange. She also revitalizes the texture and tone of complexions with classic European facials and sloughs off dead skin-cells using a diamond-tip microdermabrasion wand instead of a stuffed porcupine.
The stylists and aestheticians at Reno Salon & Spa coif tresses with Redken and Argan Oil hair products and pamper faces and bodies with Yon-Ka skincare products. Cuts and color impart new shape and hue to locks, and facials and waxing treatments leave skin as smooth as a dolphin swaddled in silk. Nail techs polish fingers and toes, and eyes are dressed with semi-permanent mascara or soft eyelash extensions.
Naturally Well is about a “love of being both healthy and beautiful in the most natural way possible,” says Estell Myers, the business’s owner. She's not exaggerating: Estell makes her own salves for waxing and sells raw honey harvested by her own husband, a beekeeper who also provides the wax from which Estell crafts candles and lip balms. Her weight-loss regimen rests on the principles of homeopathy, and her detox foot spa sessions rely on charged particles to manipulate the way the body stores energy.
Originally a cosmetologist, Estell felt compelled to explore the close connection between internal and external wellbeing, so she earned her certification as a nutrition consultant. For the same reason, she also took up reflexology, a practice that eases stress and pain by applying pressure to the hands, feet, and flippers.
