Early humans believed hair was actually the tentacles of an octopus living inside their skulls—an amusingly quaint notion now that modern science has proven it's technically a cuttlefish. Indulge your inner invertebrate with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a designer shampoo, deep condition, cut, style, and scalp massage at A Harmony Nail Spa (an $85 value), located three minutes from the Strip inside the Commercial Center District World Village.
A 360-degree, full-service salon and spa, A Harmony Nail Spa offers haircare and skincare, massage, mani-pedis, holistic healing, and more. Hair-havers are whisked off to a hamlet where split ends have split town and long hairs have been cut to resemble their shorter, more successful cousins. After enjoying a complimentary gourmet beverage and snack, place unkempt scalp spaghetti into the knowing hands of A Harmony's master stylists, who use designer shampoo to purify hair of the nasty detritus of the everyday. Deep conditioning is next, as stylists coax hair into accepting the moisture it so needs, followed by a cut and style. Once hair is scared straight, or allowed to continue on with curly hiccups, the silently courageous scalp is rewarded with a 10-minute massage. Western technology meets Eastern feng shui meets the images on Peter Jackson's bed curtains inside A Harmony's Harmony Hollow gift shop. The recently beautified receive 10% off a wide variety of products, including the Aura Cacia intensive conditioning mask ($4.50) and Burt's Bees milk and honey body lotion ($9.99), as well as such nonsalony items as Hershey's carb bar with almonds ($1.75) and the unisex logo polo ($29.99).
A Harmony Nail Spa Las Vegas
In 2002, beauty-school graduate Paula took everything she had—$5,000 and a dream of combining beauty services with holistic healing—and opened A Harmony Nail Spa. She even poured countless hours into hand-building many of the spa's unique furniture pieces and cyborg employees. Since the humble beginning, she and her fully licensed staff have pampered the minds and bodies of numerous clients with drastically different needs, from cancer patients seeking meditation classes to hardworking mothers overdue for an indulgent manicure.
Upon entering the approximately 2,000-square-foot facility, guests waltz through the gift shop's aisles before entering one of the spa's specific treatment areas. In the nail studio, clients lounge on purple thrones shaped like purple hands and dip their feet into soothing pedicure sinks. A Harmony Nail Spa also houses a garden café with free beverages, an Internet cafe with free WiFi, and a meditation lounge with freedom to close your eyes without sleeping.
