Though the exterior of Paradise Spa Buffet is nondescript, the services provided within the tranquil spa are quite memorable. This is because the spa's trained aestheticians customize each skin and body treatment, from permanent makeup and eyelash extensions to chemical peels and Brazilian waxes.
Gold’s Gym lures fitness seekers from all walks of life with cardio decks, strength-training equipment, and aerobics rooms filled with energizing classes. Instead of reciting Shakespearean monologues as they jog and pedal, guests can watch movies in a cardio theater lined with treadmills, bikes, and an oversize projection screen. Free weights encourage biceps to bulge, and resistance machines tone arms, abs, and legs. Sports lovers dribble basketballs and volley racquetballs on shiny courts (available at most locations), raising their heart rates as they hone hand-eye coordination. Like the nightly news, Zumba classes take an hour and set Latin-inspired dance moves that vaporize calories to vibrant world music, along with a slew of available selections, including cardio and spin classes. Consult each location’s webpage for a class schedule and a list of additional amenities, which range from childcare to personal training (not included in today’s Groupon).
Jessica Graff, the owner and manager of Prestige Salon & Spa, teamed up with Dr. Stanley Green to blend med-spa services, such as Botox, photofacials, and laser hair removal, with the relaxing and beautifying treatments of a salon. The experienced and personable staff— made up of a highly specialized team of stylists, nail technicians, aestheticians, laser technicians, and massage therapists—snips locks, sculpts nails, and lavishes bodies with massages alongside med-spa services. The unisex salon also helps men achieve well-groomed status with services such as haircuts, massages, and sports mani-pedis. Clients' eyes get in on the pampering at the salon's boutique, which carries designer bags, wallets, and aprons that keep your clothes clean while hosting dinner parties or refereeing a pudding-wrestling match.
Led by Camille Parmenter, the talented aestheticians at Naturally Yours fuse traditional services such as cuts and highlights with modern technologies, including glitter-strand hair extensions, and acrylic nails. All color treatments utilize Redken products, selected by Naturally Yours’s colorists for their consistent results and formulaic ability to blend into natural hair color, explaining their popularity amongst spies who must infiltrate a high-profile conference disguised as a dignitary’s toupee. Red wood pedestals at each station echo the exposed red rafters, which crown the earthy, modern space with a burst of industrial flare. Colorful rows of products stand in neat regiments upon crimson-stained wooden shelves, chromatically delightful and just out of reach, just like a parrot trapped in a computer monitor.
Highly trained mane charmer Whitney Phillips molds tresses into eye-catching coifs with products from Paul Mitchell and The Color. During a 45-minute cut and conditioning treatment, Whitney refashions head threads, infuses hair with silky conditioner, and meticulously glues together split ends, leaving clients with smooth, shiny locks of keratin. The three-hour highlight and style accentuates scalp canopies with strategically placed streaks of brilliant color, showcasing the best qualities of any new haircut. Though today's deal covers the cost of a half-head's worth of highlights, customers may upgrade to a full head treatment for an additional $55 or a bag of magic beans and an expertly crafted tale.
Sometimes it takes a fairy godmother to get ready for a ball, wedding, or normal day of running errands. Although they haven’t quite figured out the correct potion to turn pumpkins into carriages, the fairy godmothers at Fairytale Hair and Makeup have perfected the looking-good part.
LashFairy Annette bolsters eyelashes with professional extensions; hair and makeup specialists enhance features with eyeliner and lipstick and transform hair into chignons, updos, or al dente pasta. Stylists also whisk away unwanted hair with waxing services and haircuts.
Infinity Float Spa is a different kind of spa—there are no facials or body wraps here. Instead, the goal is to surround visitors in a tranquil silence that is almost impossible to find in regular life. By offering floatation therapy in sensory-deprivation tanks, Infinity Float Spa helps guests mute the outside world while they safely float in warm, shallow saltwater tanks that are darkened enough to hide distractions and induce relaxation.
