Unless people alter their personal style from time to time, mirrors can become bored and replace one's reflection with the likeness of an evil twin or a hand-lettered sign that spells out "yawn." Keep mirrors entertained with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of salon services at Areté Salon in Johnston.
Areté's staff of beautifying specialists pampers customers from widow's peak to big toe with a full assortment of salon services. Haircuts for men ($20) and women ($35) tame stray strands after stylists consult patrons about whether to shape hairdos into trendy new styles or fully functioning birds' nests. Feather extensions with tinsel ($20+) imbue manes with the radiance of a fireproof phoenix, and waxing services ($8+) sculpt overgrown keratin patches. A spa pedicure ($45) tidies up digits, preparing feet for glass-slipper fittings or high-pressure auditions to play hands in a Broadway play. Areté eases the experience of waiting by occupying guests with complimentary WiFi access and television.
