Like an iceberg, beauty mostly resides below the surface, but only its visible portion can gain the attention of an ocean liner. Look shipshape with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a Global Keratin (GKhair) hair-smoothing treatment performed by Amanda Peelle at A Day Away Salon and Spa (a $300 value).
A Day Away's Amanda Peelle calms curly or wavy hair with smoothing treatments that last three to five months. The formula's special blend of proteins conditions and moisturizes deep into the strand, reducing friction to improve hair's tolerance for heat and swim caps. During their appointments, visitors can enjoy the lively salon environment and fix their eyes on the salon's wicker chairs, bamboo plants, and elegant drapery.
Some hair-straightening products that claim to be formaldehyde-free include aldehyde compounds, which are similar to the carcinogen formaldehyde. Side effects may include nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among others. Learn more about the health risks here.
A Day Away Salon & Spa
Cast in soft overhead light, the arching, earth-toned corridors of A Day Away Salon & Spa reveal curtain-draped treatment rooms equipped to rejuvenate both the body and mind. Jet-black washbasins rehydrate hair before stylists armed with products from Pureology, Redken, and Paul Mitchell snip away rogue growth or unlock new identities with all-over color. Within the facial-treatment room, oil-soaked reed diffusers punctuate the air with aromas as nutrient-packed masks ease away fine lines and creases. Nail stations equipped with built-in pedicure baths soothe cuticles before toes welcome coats of polish or hands try on sets of sturdy acrylic extensions.
In addition to its time as a temple of beauty, the spa doubles as a Pilates and yoga studio, helping clients unlock flexibility, practice therapeutic breathing, or find inner peace after getting their joke rejected by Reader’s Digest.
