As seen in press outlets including the San Mateo County Times, Peninsula Beauty stocks its stores with professional beauty supplies and salon products culled from a sprawling 10,000-square-foot warehouse. An eclectic array of more than 200 brands, from American Crew to OPI, helps men and women transform hair and nails into polished works of aesthetic art. Cosmetics and lotions stand ready to adorn epidermises, and an arsenal of flat- and curling irons allows for more believable quick-changes during impromptu performances of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
If you’re ever going to make good on your New Year’s resolution to climb the outside of the Bank of America Corporate Center, you’re going to need some well-maintained nails. Today’s deal will cover you with a deluxe manicure and pedicure at My Nail Spa–Peninsula in Cornelius for $25 (a $58 value). Geographers agree that the spa is technically a promontory, but you won’t mind once the skilled nail technicians hand you your choice of beer or wine and start to work on your dainty digit-helmets.
Victoria Nail Spa's experienced nail technicians touch up fingers and toes by pampering them during relaxing manicures and pedicures. During the manicure, a buffer polishes nails, and a file shapes them into various forms, creating a well-maintained, uniform appearance or turning hands into multi-functional Swiss army knives. A splash of polish coats finger shields to protect them and add flash to exaggerated hand gestures. The deluxe pedicure coddles body bases in a relaxing treatment that includes toe time under a hot towel. A scrub exfoliates feet, removing dead skin cells and stains left over from games of kick the can of fruit punch, and a mud mask smothers tootsies in luxury and ensures that feet are camouflaged when traipsing through puddles.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists; use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry, and lean back and dream of breakdancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring (starting at $52), highlights (starting at $75), or a perm (starting at $75).
By massaging different parts of just the feet during reflexology treatments, the therapists at Oriental Foot Massage Bar hope to manipulate the rest of the body. They believe that our feet have dozens of reflex zones that correspond to different parts of the body?from the eyes to the kidneys to the knees?and they apply specific patterns of pressure to improve poor digestion, soothe muscle aches, and even clear up skin problems.
Massage therapists also tackle tension in the rest of the body during classic Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger point, and acupressure massages. To soothe extra tense muscles, they place heated basalt stones or retired hot potatoes onto the problem area.
Bellezza Day Spa's specialists evict freeloading tension and impurities with signature spa treatments including facials, waxing, massages, and manicures. Knowledgeable hands slow dance across weary backs during muscle-kneading massage sessions to improve circulation and invoke relaxation. Specialized facials infuse natural facemasks with a variety of cleansing and nourishing treatments including steam extractions and organic, paraben-free products. Nail treatments enhance the health and appearance of back scratchers and often conclude with hot-lavender-oil massages. Diligent depilators uproot unwanted skin sprouts with hard and soft waxes, which make it easy to shape forehead-dwelling caterpillars into beautiful arches.
