Ancient salons were gathering places where women would meet to braid one another’s hair while gossiping about whose husband stayed out all night at the unicorn racetracks. Carry on tradition with today’s Groupon for spa services from Amanda Banghart at Spa De Da, though previously at Envy Hair Studio Aesthetics. Choose from the following options:
- For $25, you get a full custom facial (a $50 value).
- For $25, you get a Brazilian wax (a $50 value).
- For $40, you get a Brazilian wax (a $50 value) and a mini facial (a $35 value) (an $85 total value).<p>
Nestled within Envy Hair Studio Aesthetics, licensed aesthetician Amanda Banghart bolsters clients’ market value with a menu of soothing and swoon-worthy treatment options. Infused with Image Skincare products, the custom facial begins with a light cleansing and analysis of skin’s problem spots. A deeper cleansing and exfoliation dredges up dead skin, while the enzyme mask accompanies a shoulder and neck massage. A facial massage and personalized mask gently but firmly regulate unruly surfaces, like the substitute teacher you wished would stay forever, while an anti-aging serum and SPF protection smooth away sun damage. Custom facials can be upgraded by paying the difference in value.
During the Brazilian wax, an antiseptic spray numbs the skin’s surface to reduce stinging and discomfort. Hard and soft wax tag-team below-the-belt fuzz busting, with hard wax strong-arming the unrulier sensitive areas, which throw tantrums when they don’t get their way. Stressed skin stops screaming under the soothing strokes and deep tenor of a cooling gel.
For the third option, in addition to the Brazilian, the mini facial provides a quick cleanup up in the time it takes to reenact the wedding of Alice the Housekeeper to Sam the Butcher using costumed brooms. An abbreviated version of the custom facial, the mini facial cleanses and exfoliates front panels before treating them to a youth-preserving enzyme mask, anti-aging serum, and SPF protection.
Spa De Da Skincare
Feather boas skirt Spa De Da's windows, and kiss-mark-shaped wall decals share space with tan sofas. The flirty, pop-art decor showcases coowner and aesthetician Amanda Banghart's ebullient personality but belies her serious beauty chops. A bachelor of biology from Wayne State College augments her aesthetician's understanding of skin chemistry. Amanda complements her formal and experiential education with professional certifications from Image and Bioelements, from which she learned to design effective skincare regimes with their products.
Drawing on this wealth of knowledge, Banghart analyzes each client's complexion to discover the source of and appropriate treatment for blemishes, early signs of aging, or the slow metamorphosis into a young Benjamin Button. Cosmetics for special occasions also inspired her avid scholarship of beauty.
