Being beautiful is hard work, which is why, when viewed up close, most supermodels resemble elderly oil-rig workers. Let someone else do the hard work for you with today's Groupon to Amadora Salon. Choose between the following options:
• For $25, you get $50 worth of waxing services.
• For $40, you get a Restore Me facial (an $85 value).
At Amadora, pampering experts soothe wearied dermises and de-fuzz body forests within the brightly lit, hardwood-accented salon. With waxing services on a variety of areas, villus-vanquishing specialist Teri Gimelli draws upon her 15 years of experience to detach tough tufts. Clear deciduous bristles from the lips ($10) or chin ($7–$10) to make way for a facial condominium complex, or pulverize pelts on the arms ($25–$35) or pelvic area with the standard bikini wax ($30–$40).
The Restore Me facial begins with a skincare specialist's nimble fingers massaging the shoulders and neck. The mitigation master then wraps the hands in hot gloves, giving them an edge in their next boxing match with a snowman. Steam gently lolls across visages, opening pores and preparing skin for light extractions and the deep exfoliation of a glycolic peel. A dollop of specially formulated lotion tops refreshed faces to help balance pH before the salon's façade fixer recommends a personalized skincare regimen. Though this facial can be beneficial for all types of epidermises, it is recommended for skin that is problematic, mature, or damaged from childhood turf wars.
Founding Amadora Salon was a dream come true for Shannon Grays. After lending her skills to other beauty parlors, Shannon decided she needed to express herself with more than just a pair of scissors and a comb. She created the Paul Mitchell concept salon as a pure expression of her spirit and character, carefully selecting everything from the colors to the fabrics.
She applied this same devotion to choosing a staff, handpicking a team of stylists and aestheticians that share her passions for cosmetic care and maritime law. The team works together to address a variety of skin and hair concerns, offering basic trims and coloring treatments that keep locks stylish, as well as glycolic peels that leave cheekbones bright and radiant.
To complement the arsenal of products on its shelves, Amadora Salon also stocks the skincare-balm and makeup lines that Shannon designed. Brown-sugar body scrubs gently exfoliate skin without drying it out the way salt scrubs or napping in a pile of sawdust can. Shoppers can also browse natural-makeup products containing hypoallergenic mineral pigments and freeze-dried vitamins.
