Manicures and pedicures serve as routine maintenance for busy limb endings by trimming nails and pushing cuticles as well as softening and polishing. The mani-pedi treatments eliminate unsightly issues such as nail chipping, ragged cuticles, and callused skin. The manicure includes nail buffing and polish, leaving nails smooth and shiny (an $18 value), and the one-hour Spa Club pedicure soothes the tougher calluses that result from being walked on all day (a $38 value), leaving your feet smoothed, exfoliated, and nail-shiningly refreshed. Today's deal also includes a yearlong membership ($25), which locks in discount rates at all three locations of The Spa Club for the duration of one 67,000-mph trip around a gigantic, flaming plasma orb.
Ray Francom's barbershops evoke a bygone era with their antique cash registers, vintage barbershop signs, and old-fashioned smooth lather shaves with hot towels and straight razors. Above the checkered floors of his second location, ceiling murals, chandeliers, and high wood beams watch over wisps of falling hair. In both locations, Francom combines classic barbershop trimmings with modern styling acumen, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather as well as his three barber brothers.
Francom's hand-selected staff has a wide range of experience and specialties, including beard design and precision cuts for men, women, and children. Each trim ends with a hot-lather neck shave and mechanical shoulder massage from a vintage barbershop machine.
Heavenly Hands Massage & Spa’s strong-thumbed therapists dissipate their clients' tension with the same massage techniques they have used to unwind professional athletes from the Utah Grizzlies, Blaze, and Bees. With this veteran experience, the staff focuses on alleviating chronic pain or injury-related discomfort through therapeutic methods that range from the standard modalities of Swedish and deep-tissue massage to the Eastern practices of Thai massage and ashiatsu. Ashiatsu—a centuries-old method born out of discomfort from pillows not being invented—evicts deep-seated tension by having massage therapists steady themselves on a bar anchored to the ceiling and apply pressure with targeted footsteps. To iron out energy kinks, a team of yoga instructors orchestrates classes that stretch and strengthen muscles while centering the mind. Hairstylists and aestheticians round out the bodily bolstering with expert styling and nine varieties of facial.
Cuticle caretaker Heidi Bishop at Star 21 Salon indulges clients with a 90-minute mani-pedi that relaxes the mind and rejuvenates the fingers and toes. At the pedi station, a warm bath soaks feet, softening skin for a scrub that scours inseams and heels to remove calluses earned during barefoot treadmill contests. Next, Heidi’s deft digits push and clip cuticles before applying a rich moisturizer and a coat of OPI polish. During the manicure, Heidi pampers hands with the same regimen of soaking, shaping, and polishing.
