Elegant nails are a reminder that hands have not been subjected to grueling manual labor, such as using a rotary phone or scratching the belly of a blue whale. Shelter your nails from the daily grind with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a Shellac gel manicure and a spa pedicure at Bouffant Salon (a $65 value). This Groupon is valid only at Bouffant's Pearl District Location.
Manicurists Harley, Julianna, and Karlee clip, buff, and paint neglected nails while pampering weary bodies in Bouffant Salon's chic loft. Complimentary glasses of wine leisurely kick off 75-minute mani-pedis, which treat feet and hands separately to allow free gesticulation with at least one pair of digits throughout the session. Visitors sink into massage chairs at the start of the pedicure and dangle tootsies in sterile stainless-steel tubs as calm waters free of show-tune-singing jet skiers surround them. Nimble hands scrub calluses from parched heels and smooth rough soles, working out subdermal kinks and knots before flooding nail beds with pools of color from OPI. A UV lamp cures CND Shellac gel manicures and locks in color as effectively as a peacock's parole officer to protect fingertips under a gleaming, chip-free shield that remains on duty for up to two weeks and can be removed in 10 minutes.
Bouffant Hair Salon
Beauty radiates from within Bouffant Hair Salon's two locations, each a high-vaulted haven decorated with wooden accents and purple orchids. But prettiness isn't just found in the salon's decor. It staffs more than 20 beauticians who keep their skills fresh by attending continuing education courses and sneaking out at night to paint the nails of all the town’s statues. Stylists show off their skills as they color and sculpt freshly chopped dos using haircare products from Oribe and Wella, as well as lengthen locks with 100% human-hair extensions. Dermalogica products aid aestheticians as they purify pores with customized facials and exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments, and technicians apply vibrant colors to nails using OPI polishes and Shellac gels.
