The face is the human body's most expressive part, speaking for us when our tongues are occupied with stamps or busy flirting with our tonsils. Keep your face in tip-top shape with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a cherry-berry enzyme peel at the Elayne James Salon & Spa in Middletown or Greenville (a $113 value).
The experienced staff at Elayne James Salon & Spa aims to curtail aging and reinforce collagen during the antioxidant-rich cherry-berry enzyme peel. The treatment begins as visages are cleansed twice to reveal bare-skinned beauty. The beautician then lacquers noggins with the enzyme peel, letting faceplates steep for 10 minutes to uproot dead cells and de-gunk pores. Next a misty mini sauna steams skin before a cherry-berry mask draws out remaining toxins as effortlessly as a Vegas crooner draws out an encore. Finally, façades are massaged with moisturizers personalized to individual needs. Within Elayne James Salon & Spa, lavender scrollwork and vivid-purple drapery top modernist mirror stretches.
Elayne James Salon and Spa
Effective hair- and skincare requires two things: talented, well-trained beauty professionals and quality products. Elayne James Salon and Spa, named in Salon Today's list for 200 of the country’s fastest growing salons, thrives with a staff of Redken- and Wella-trained hairstylists who wield French-made herbal formulas from Privé as they cut, color, and style strands. They also lengthen short ‘dos with Italian SoCap hair extensions, block frizz with a keratin smoothing system, and scare strands straight with barks from a drill sergeant.
The salon’s aestheticians offer all natural skincare services such as lightweight to heavyweight peels, gel polish manicures, medical pedicures, and airbrush tanning. One of the most indulgent offerings is the Rejuvenating Pedi, full of products that sound good enough to eat. First feet are given a whole milk and chicory root Butter Brulee soak to soften skin, next is an exfoliating brown sugar, rice bran oil, and premium rum scrub, followed by a drizzling of an all natural marshmallow-scented blend of emollient Shea, cocoa, and mango butters. Accompanying the pedicure smorgasbord is a enzyme exfoliation treatment and mask.
Beyond hair and skin, Elayne James’s service menu includes relaxing Swedish and deep-tissue massages and waxing.
