Serenity by Elizabeth Ann is the good-looking brainchild of Liz Rapp and the crown jewel of Cala Luna Salon on State Street. Liz draws on her skills as a massage therapist and aesthetician to pamper bodies all over, soothing sore muscles one minute and extracting blackheads the next. Custom facials are her specialty, and she offers five varieties designed to meet her clients' specific needs. Whether they opt for the intensive deep-pore-cleansing facial or the Quick Pick Me Up facial, clients can expect to leave the salon feeling refreshed and revitalized.
Cala Luna Salon and Spa offers a transcendent array of body-and mind-restoring services in a chic salon environment. Today’s Groupon gives you freedom of aesthetic choice, beginning with a potential refashioning of your silky-follicled head helmet. Salon owner and hair artist Angie Steinhauser leads a team of dedicated stylists in pursuit of eyebrow and hairdo harmony, from which you'll reap the benefits of subtly arched brows ($12+) and an expertly crafted hair style ($35+ for a women's cut and style). Cuticle-conscious clients can gift themselves two manicures from Kim Mitchell, one of Cala Luna’s esteemed nail beautifiers. Or bring a friend and gossip about Niels Bohr’s penchant for bringing mini atomic bombs to cocktail parties while getting simultaneous nail touch-ups. Finally, a 30-minute massage from massage therapist and tension exterminator Lori Surbaugh relaxes and revives sore, knotty backs.
The licensed aestheticians at Bahia Beauty LLC embrace technology. They vanquish unwanted hair with electrolysis and laser treatments. They can also streamline makeup regimens with permanent makeup, a tattoo-like process that can eliminate the need for eyeliner, lip liner, or eyebrow pencil. The spa’s technology, however, doesn’t replace low-tech treatments—it complements them. The staff still brightens skin with organic chemical peels and uses old-school techniques—such as waxing, tweezing and threading—to reshape brows.
The newly opened Posh! Nail Bar combines the expertise of its nail technicians with a soothing salon environment to bring indulgent and eco-friendly nail services to countless fingers and toes. Your signature manicure begins with a natural cuticle softener to tenderize hardened nail frames, followed by a filing, cuticle curing, and buffing, wherein finger tops are shaped to symmetrical perfection. Skin mittens indulge in a gentle exfoliation and massage before being topped off with a non-toxic coat of polish, and each manicure comes with a complimentary polish change within seven days of the initial service. Toes will delight in a similarly relaxing treatment—they loll in an aromatherapy oil-infused foot soak. Your friendly foot buffer will banish calluses to an early grave before massaging walkers with a choice of natural floral scrubs and lotions. Match your toe polish to your fingers for a streamline effect, or choose a separate hue to differentiate between your phone dialers and your spaghetti twirlers.
Kenneth's Hair Salons and Day Spas transform lackluster locks into magnificent manes with flattering, fashion-forward cuts and expert styling. During a cut and style, a master designer will reawaken hair's inner beauty with a consultation, considering each client's desires, hair texture, face shape, and engine displacement before suggesting a blueprint for a sexy new style. As the haircare treatment progresses, customers can enjoy soaking up as much of the modern, welcoming atmosphere as possible while the stylist reveals trade tips and tricks, and recommends products to attain a fresh-from-the-salon look at home. Each master designer stylist comes to Kenneth's with extensive experience in taming human insubordinate frizz, and continues studying emerging cut and styling techniques to make sure each new 'do swings and swishes in harmony with the latest advances in shearing science.
Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, L.A. Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
Perfect Image's salon services refresh coiffeurs of every kind and its spa ministrations bring new vim to tired skin. The strand sorcerers on staff consult with clients before shampooing, snipping, and blow-drying their locks into coiffured majesty ($37+). When hair is unwelcome at the body party, aestheticians will kick it to the curb after meticulously daubing warm azulene body wax around eyebrows ($13), lips ($10), underarms ($20), and other areas seeking follicle liberation. Meanwhile, indulgent hides can pour over Perfect Image's extensive list of facial treatments including the Eclat Cocoon facial, which—like a paranoid umpire—swaddles visages in a double mask before unveiling refreshed skin ($85).
