Before beauty salons, people resorted to scuba diving in coral reefs, where pufferfish spikes exfoliated faces and electric-eel shocks added waves and volume to drab hairstyles. Delight in dive-free luxuries with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of salon services at a'la Mode salonspa in Hudson, Wisconsin or New Richmond, Wisconsin.
The talented aestheticians and hair-shorteners at a'la Mode salonspa, a full-service salon and spa, exhibit expertise in stylish haircuts, glossy mani-pedis, relaxing massages, and a variety of beautifying aesthetic services. Stylists trim bangs ($10–12) and dish out haircuts for adults ($19–62) and children 11 and younger ($15–35). Finger-painters apply white polish to the tips of nails during French manicures ($36). Remove unnecessary hairs with a bikini wax, or indulge in a pregnancy massage ($46 for 30 minutes), which enhances sleep for expectant mothers and calms the kicks of active babies. The application of a one-hour back facial ($61) rejuvenates back skin and decreases stress caused by moving stand-up pianos. Hair cuts in New Richmond start at $19, while hair cuts in Hudson start at $23.
