The cosmetologists at Pro Clips Hair & Beauty Salon refresh noodle-rinds by subjecting dermal debris to a one-hour litany of treatments. During the deep-cleaning facial, technicians scrub façades free of dullness and dead skin cells before a gentle round of extractions expunges pores of burnt-out light bulbs. The facial's namesake treatment then swoops in to thoroughly cleanse the complexion and help prevent future breakouts. Next, visages find nourishment under a specially blended mask, and a hand, scalp, and shoulder massage obliterates below-the-surface tension. Those opting for the herbal facial receive all of the deep-cleaning facial's services in addition to herbal elements that work to clear blemishes and add flavor to face-top hibachi grills.
