Without manicures, unruly rogue cuticles would lead insurgent elbows and arms into battle against the toes and ankles of the South. Prevent bodily civil war with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a luxury hand and foot treatment at Cheveux (a $100 value), located in the East Hills shopping district.
Cheveux's luxury hand and foot treatment releases gnarled peach pits of finger-born tension and soothes rigid toe muscles with a 105-minute intensive pampering session. Hands are delicately dipped in warm paraffin to revitalize joints and lock in moisture ($10 value), before digit manipulators massage mitts into a stressless amalgam of fingers and lifelines. After cuticles are trimmed, shaped, and treated to a bath of hot oil ($10 value), keratin surfaces are splashed in the color of your choice, be it fire-engine red, pearly pink, or brain-matter gray ($25 value). Meanwhile, customers are treated to a full spa pedicure. Foot fingers are bathed in a Whirlpool-jet foot soak before being scrubbed, exfoliated, and massaged ($45 value) and treated to an herbal hot-towel treatment ($10 value) with foot mask before nails are shaped and polished, leaving them fluffy, scented, and basking in the warm bliss of not wearing shoes.
Cheveux's earth-toned, candle-laden interior is easy on the sensory receptors, leaving the outside world out of sight, out of mind, and out of nostrils. Call to make an appointment and watch Cheveux sweep stress under the rug of relaxation.
Cheveux the Spa
At just a glance, the boutique might look an antique shop. A wrought-iron chandelier dangles just inside the entrance, its lights casting a bronze glow on the tile ceiling. This initial impression is fitting for Cheveux the Spa, where stylists and aestheticians tend to guests at modern, custom designed workstations featuring ornate mirrors. Amid Renaissance-style paintings, they coif hair, slick nails in pretty polish, massage tension out of bodies, and wax rogue body hair. Old and new elements have been harmoniously combined to create an eclectic atmosphere that is both comfortable and relaxing.
