Oana Schultz, the experienced manicure technician of Fringe Salon's Perfectly Polished Nails, decorates finger-claws with a full slate of nail services. Keep talon upkeep to a minimum with a Shellac or Gelish manicure, which employ gel polish that paints on like its non-gel counterparts but eludes damage like the star of a four-part action-movie franchise. Manicures are available in an eye-popping spectrum of resilient, smudge-free solids and glittery shades. Vibrant keratin coatings last for up to two weeks, and since the manicures require no drying time, the application only takes between 45 and 60 minutes. This Groupon can be used over the course of two separate visits, unless customers spontaneously grow a second set of hands during their first appointment.
If there’s one thing the veteran waxing technicians at High Brow Waxing Boutique know for sure, it’s that clients hate pain. That's why they use premium Cirepil wax, whose soy and beeswax ingredients are designed to ease hair shafts from follicles with as little irritation as possible. Afterward, they educate clients on aftercare to minimize skin irritation and stave off the attention of envious dolphins.
The skin saviors at Q-ticles enlist natural oxygen and Bioelements products to revitalize dull or prematurely aging visages. As massages relax sore limbs and stressed faces, aestheticians launch into a one-hour process that includes a thorough skin analysis, deep cleanse, as-needed extractions, and a warm-up comedy routine. Enzyme-based exfoliants prep faces for a thorough scrubbing at the hands of a rotating brush, and Clarisonic’s Opal Sonic infuser carries anti-aging serum deep into pore’s recesses.
