County Line Beauty Salon's technicians have more than 15 years of experience turning unremarkable locks into strikingly colorful and masterfully cut coifs. After clients declare their desired look, stylists snip hairs into place before skillfully deploying blow-dryers to create a lustrous, straightened sheen not unlike that of a freshly ironed snakeskin. Those who choose to top newly cropped coifs with some color can sit back as the salon's stockpile of Redken products power a color conversion that rehues strategically chosen strands to create dynamic partial highlights. A face-framing new cut and blow-dry takes about 45 minutes and highlights usually take an additional hour of chair time. Both treatments can translate into a youthful-looking head, which often translates into a youthful strut and a plethora of compliments from friends, strangers, and the insides of hats. Though not included with this Groupon, full highlights are available for an additional cost.
Clip's 2000 Hair and Nails is housed in a cheery cottage with rustic hardwood floors, colorful walls, and a soft sofa to lounge on while flipping through glossy fashion magazines.

The skilled staffers favor quality haircare products from top brands, including replenishing Rusk shampoos and conditioners.
Salon Chic Downtown’s owner, Rose Zagra, draws on 20 years of beauty-industry experience and nine years as a Creative Nail Design master technician to orchestrate a symphony of luxurious beauty treatments. To guarantee personalized service, each treatment, like all good superhero-sidekick relationships, kicks off with a one-on-one question-and-answer session. Salon Chic's nail technicians have all spent at least five years beautifying extremities, and can beautify nails with traditional polish, long-lasting CND Shellac, or artificial tips that lengthen fingers without having to spike the hand cream with fertilizer. The salon’s hair services include texture-altering treatments that range from perms to Brazilian blowouts, and its facials and chemical peels employ products from Bioelements and SkinMedica to rejuvenate skin.
Nails Lounge pampers its clients the moment they walk through the door. The soothing decor, replete with warm colors and natural accents, prepares clients for their nail or spa services of choice. Long-stemmed roses greet patrons at each table as they sit down for a manicure, during which nail techs exfoliate the skin and sink hands into ultramoisturizing paraffin wax. During a pedicure, lower limbs enjoy scented scrubs and massages while clients sip from glasses of champagne perched on an attached shelf. The massage room wraps its visitors inside its tranquil aura as they lie down for a Swedish massage or a hot-stone massage that heals soreness while integrating Swedish techniques. A screen, painted with cherry-blossom branches, creates stress-dissolving serenity with the illusion of a natural landscape. Aestheticians also keep skin healthy and smooth with deep-cleansing facials, exfoliating body scrubs, and body wraps.
Little girls swaddled in hot-pink bathrobes, their heads cradled by matching neck pillows, lay in repose, their faces coated in moisturizer and their eyes covered by cucumber slices. They're celebrating a birthday party in style from Love & Joy Parties and Event Planning, a mobile party service that coordinates pampered parties. Kids can get pedicures to prepare their feet for the flip-flops they'll decorate at the party or primp their skin with berry facials to look their best for a fashion show. Teens can celebrate sweet 16s or graduations with a candy bar and personalized water bottles, and moms-to-be can let Love & Joy handle the stress of matching tablecloths to the new baby's hair color.
With more than 25 years of experience, cosmetologist Katherine Long infuses relaxation with depilation, stocking hypoallergenic, soothing oils and honey-based wax in a cozy atmosphere. During a 15-minute facial treatment, honey wax designed specifically for sensitive skin unfastens surplus fuzz on cheeks, lips, and chins. After assessing face's shape and favorite KISS singer, waxing mavens carefully prune and shape brows. Ladies can also opt to smooth arms, underarms, or bikini zones in a 30-minute treatment that begins with a soothing pre-cleanse and wraps up with a skin-pacifying concoction of hypoallergenic oils and creams. A great preparation for vacations and hairless-bear impersonations, back waxing smoothes gentlemen's torsos, and the one-hour leg waxing paired with a hair-growth-slowing cream maintains shorts-ready shanks.
