Early humans believed that hair was actually the tentacles of an octopus living inside their skulls—an amusingly quaint notion now that modern science has proved it's technically a cuttlefish. Indulge your inner invertebrate with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a haircut at Agea Spa (up to a $40 value), located on South Nicolet Road. Agea Spa provides Appleton’s pulchritudinous people with hands-on beautification services and rejuvenating treatments that retire old follicles and skin cells from aesthetically active duty. The devoted hair stylists will craft your main mane according to detailed instructions or artistic intuition, leaving your headscape immaculately attractive and shiny. Dark wood accents, zen-like artwork, and mood lighting are just some of the relaxing features that await weary guests in the luxurious spa atmosphere.
The stone accent wall and cherry-wood counter in Agea Spa's lobby form a barrier against the stresses of the outside world. Upon entering, clients are encouraged to cast aside their cell phones and laptops before enjoying a relaxing shower in one of the private changing areas. This is only the first step, though—within the spa proper, a team of aestheticians and stylists stands ready to pamper visitors from crown to ankle.
The aestheticians' facial treatments incorporate organically sourced skincare ingredients—including anti-inflammatory plant extracts, natural fruit acids, and aromatic steam—formulated to hydrate the skin and imbue it with a healthy glow. The massage therapists target knotted muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone modalities, and they can also use reflexology or reiki techniques to promote holistic balance. The stylists pamper clients' tresses, designing flattering new looks with a combination of well-placed snips, coloring products, and texturizing treatments.
