Boston's Best Beauty & Wellness Deals, Ranked by Customers

BY: Editors | Feb 11, 2015

Every day, Groupon helps its customers live their best lives. Whether you want to go to a spa for a few hours’ rest and relaxation or head to a salon to tweak your appearance, you can find a local business on Groupon to make that experience happen. Groupon has hundreds of beauty deals, ranging from scientifically advanced med spas with a roster of rejuvenating lasers to no-frills salons with stylists who can fashion makeovers with just a pair of scissors.

After our customers redeem their Groupons, they vote on the quality of the service. From that data, we compiled a list of their favorite businesses for beauty and wellness deals. Below are their five favorites, ranked by customer satisfaction:

Recommended by 96% of customers

What our customers say: "Very pleasant and very good!" – Nancy B. | "Best facial in a long time. Skin glowing, body and mind deeply relaxed. Foot, arm, and head massages [are a] wonderful bonus." – Julia N. | "Great service, very clean. Facials are effective and relaxing." – Jennie N.

What our editors say: The "goh" stands for green, organic, holistic. Unsurprising, nearly every treatment at this energy-efficient spa was conceived with the well-being of the client and the planet in mind. Skincare formulas, for example, can be organic, vegan, and even gluten-free. And nail polishes are free of toluene, formaldehyde, phthalates, and camphor, while pedicures are performed in a pipeless, filtered dual-water unit to minimize germs.

Zona Professional Aveda Salons

What our customers say: "Danielle was lovely and efficient and used many nice products to turn my locks around with great color and a nice cut that looks even better hours later." – Michelle C. | "Great price for good services." – Katherine P. | "Wonderful experience! Very professional too." – Janine R.

What our editors say: Given their family history of hairdressing,  it's no wonder that members of the Zona family have amassed such a wealth of knowledge that they educate their salons' stylists in a multiple-phase process. New hires learn to perform relaxation treatments while training under the watchful eyes of their personal mentor. They then become full-time stylists and, eventually, senior stylists with in-demand skills and professionalism.

Tropez Salon & Spa

What our customers say: "Beautiful spa, professional and friendly staff, excellent facial." – Emily G. | "I love this spa, very clean and great therapists." – Christine G. | "Heather was great! She's been there 10 years and customizes the massage to you—gentle, strong, etc. I will return—so relaxing and wonderful." – Myrna W.

What our editors say: Given the vastness of the facility, there are a lot of choices. Head to the spa for medically supervised treatments like laser hair removal, photofacials, and clinical skincare, as well as relaxing massages. Take some time to unwind in a soothing transition room before going to the salon for a haircut, sleek blowout, mani-pedi, or waxing.

Laser MD MedSpa

What our customers say: "Staff is so nice and the facility is really nice and clean." – Rachael G. | "Very nice people there and the price I got from Groupon was excellent." – Mirian F.

What our editors say: Science is the basis of most services at these centers, where experienced aestheticians are directed by board-certified physicians. Laser help take care of unwanted hair, blemishes, and spider veins, while cosmetic injections aid in reducing fine lines. There are also three different noninvasive treatments for fat reduction and body contouring.

Happy Feet Spa

What our customers say: "Absolute heaven! I loved it. Book yourself an appointment now, you will be glad you did." – Carla S. | "Great job at Happy Feet. It was wonderful. Ask for Yiyi." – Leslie W. | "Gary was just super fantastic! The Groupon wasn't just about feet—the hour visit included what felt like a full-body massage! Fantastic, [beyond] relaxing, and what a price!" – Maryellen C.

What our editors say: A combination of reflexology and Chinese herbal medicine makes for truly ecstatic feet. Clients first soak their feet in a tub filled with an herbal concotion while therapists give their upper body a rubdown. Then, they perform a reflexology foot massage, in which particular points are kneaded to help relieve tension and pain throughout the body.
