What You'll Get
The earliest salons were informal gatherings where B-list philosophers gibbered away so they couldn't hear themselves dying of plague. Get an earful of the modern salon’s sounds with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $55 worth of salon or spa services from a supervised beauty student at Aveda Institute Florida in Davie.
The Aveda Institutes are full-service beauty schools where esthiology students work under the supervision of licensed educators, using plant-derived, eco-friendly Aveda products to perform services such as hair styling, waxing, and massages. A haircut ($12–$18) and retouched hair color ($30–$40) chisel and paint a head into a pedestal-worthy work of art, and a relaxer ($68+) soothes strands as tight as a self-doubting horse moments before the Kentucky Derby. Whip skin into creaminess with a 60-minute facial ($40 during nonpeak hours, $60 during peak hours), debush brows ($10) and strip underarms ($20) with a waxing, or file, shape, and exfoliate fingers with a 60-minute spa service manicure ($15, $20 with polish change) and 75-minute pedicure ($20, $25 with polish change). Body treatments and massages ($40+ during nonpeak hours, $50+ during peak hours) melt away stress like a hot iron pressed against a synthetic-hair wig.
Although Aveda Institute Florida occasionally offers discounts online, this Groupon presents the best value.
