maniQ is a full-service nail salon located in Dorchester, Masachusetts. The company’s vision is to re-invent the nail salon concept by raising it to a new level and ultimately, turning it into a destination. The idea is to offer treatments in an environment that is fun, clean, and relaxing to be in.
Berklee College of Music–trained guitarist Greg Arney instructs rock recruits and campfire connoisseurs alike in guitar lessons that cater to a multitude of styles. Fledgling pick wielders will glean important skills from 30-minute private lessons, ensuring proper technique and axe-wielding posture to avoid felling nearby potted plants, and take-home multimedia materials reinforce each newly cultivated concept. Today's Groupon is valid only for lessons in Arney's space on Massachusetts Avenue.
The duo of stylists at Faking It! Salon specializes in hair and eyelash extensions. The salon's hair extensions—made from human hair—typically last three to six months, and eyelash extensions are manually applied to each individual natural lash. In addition, the stylists offer a full menu of services, including precision haircuts, eye-catching highlights, and straightening treatments, as well as makeup applications.
The trained stylists and color experts at Bella Hair Salons craft dos with services such as highlights, color applications, and special techniques reserved for curly tresses. They also primp brides with custom hair and makeup in the salon or on location. When they aren't sculpting manes, staffers participate in continuing-training sessions or remove unwanted hair from sensitive lips and eyebrows by waxing them with traditional wax or ever-so-slightly adhesive dandelion petals.
SpringRain Face & Body Spa combines Ayurveda, traditional European techniques, and modern American skincare solutions. Within a soothing, low-lit spa, staffers administer massage therapies of every kind—deep-tissue, Swedish, shiatsu, reiki—age-defying body wraps, and mani-pedis that help hands and feet recover after their daily dose of punching through walls and kicking down doors. Most treatments infuse bodies with organic herbs and essential oils, which in turn infuse the mind with a sense of well-being and relaxation.
After graduating from the Elizabeth Grady School of Esthetics, Jenelle Paris went on to become a certified eyelash extensionist as well as a MAC-trained makeup artist. With this experience, Jenelle has been able to establish Beauty Couture by Jenelle, her intimate boutique spa. At her beauty haven, clients lounge amongst vintage European-inspired décor. Jenelle and her team evoke each client's inner beauty through the aid of aesthetic treatments and massage services. Aestheticians reach for the advanced biotechnology of Neocutis skincare products as they perform peels blended from glycolic acid and enzymes. The Neocutis "Processed Skin Cell Proteins (PSP)" mixture of skin nutrients includes cytokines, growth factors, and antioxidants to achieve optimal results. Beauty Couture also specializes in eyelash extensions. A synthetic silk blend is used to create each mink eyelash extension adhered to the eyelid's original lashes while the spa's resident aesthetic nurse specialist reverses signs of aging with Botox, Belotero, Radiesse, and Juvederm injections.
