Though inner beauty is important, the fact remains that outer beauty is still often used to determine SAT scores and income-tax rates. Get a leg up on life with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of services at Bellagio Spa & Salon's Orchard Hills–Irvine location.
Employing high-end products by Schwarzkopf, Goldwell, and Epicuren and a cadre of savvy staffers, Bellagio Spa & Salon beautifies bodies with a cornucopia of salon and spa services. Oust the axis of stress and chronic pain from bodily fortifications with the one-hour Swedish Relaxation massage ($95), as gliding strokes and kneading compression techniques lay siege to knotted muscles. Clients entrust beloved locks to Bellagio's scissor-wielding stylists during a design cut and style ($65+ for women and $45+ for men), as snip artists reshape tresses into breathable pre-vacation ‘dos or regal post-topiary exhibition giraffes.
Upon passing through the flood of natural light admitted by the storefront's floor to ceiling windows, guests are greeted by an overhanging vintage chandelier and dark ceiling fans mimicking the antebellum ease of a Georgia estate. After checking in, spa guests decamp to the lockers, equipping slippers and plush robes before noshing refreshments from a teacart stocked with fresh fruit, tea, coffee, and flattering compliments.
