Owner, aesthetician, and skincare devotee Brandi Colton oversees Capricious' staff of beauty pros, whose areas of expertise run the gamut of skin pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, facials, and waxing. Bathed in light from a sparkling chandelier, customers rise from the lobby's zebra-print chairs as staffers lead them to private treatment rooms, where soft lighting and fresh flowers inject an air of tranquility into each facial, chemical peel, and massage. For the uninitiated, the free skin bar lets customers befriend their own skin therapist, who will perform a face analysis and dole out free samples of AcquaCures and Dermalogica products as heaps of steaming towels serve to open pores and perfectly cook clients made of broccoli.
Owned by a trained and licensed aesthetician, Kayaa Spa doles out skincare for the entire body, treating problems ranging from aging skin to sun damage to acne-prone spots. The enzyme facial gives stuck-up pores their comeuppance, masking mugs in 50 minutes of exfoliating bliss. A papaya enzyme treatment breaks down outer layers of skin, removing dead cells from its surface. Deep cleansing then purges comedones, or blackheads, from pores that have been hoarding excess oils and Hummel figurines. The gentle nature of the papaya extracts combined with the intense exfoliation makes this facial ideal for sensitive, congested, dull, and easily offended skin. Groupon users are also invited to take advantage of a 15% discount on a series of six skin services.
Primrose Body & Boutique provides clients with a wide array of aesthetic services performed by experienced, licensed practitioners. Like police sketch artists and moustache photographers, Primrose brings an intimate understanding of the face to its work, offering eight different flavors of facial among its many other cosmetic treatments. The glycolic facial uses glycolic acid as an exfoliating agent, helping all skin types repel signs of aging, defeat fine lines, and slay uneven skin tone. Guests can further furbish their cranial shrinkwrap with a chin or lip wax ($10 and $12, respectively), a brow shaping ($20), or a full facial wax ($45, excluding brows), among other areas. Threading is available at the same price as waxing for customers who feel queasy at the sight of candle blood.
Under the guidance of spa owner, aesthetician, and makeup artist Lori Taylor, Belleza Day Spa's team has maintained Lori's vision: cultivating an unparalleled spa experience by individually tailoring every treatment.

Facials, waxing, and other skincare help to make clients look luminous, and certified massage therapists relieve tension and break up scar tissue formed from trying to high-five gorillas. The staff also specializes in makeup application, offering packages that include bridal-party services. As a way of giving back to the community, Belleza provides a 30% service discount for firefighters, police officers, and hospital staff, a 15% product discount, and even a 15% discount for the spouses of these service workers.
