What You'll Get
Before spas helped humans preserve their outer shells, many people simply abandoned their framework like hermit crabs, scuttling across town and taking up residence in shiny trash cans. Pamper the shell you were born in with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of spa services at Expressions Salon & Spa Inc. in Cedar Rapids.
The style-savvy staff at Expressions Salon & Spa Inc. bolsters fading façades with a variety of beautifying services both time-tested and contemporary. Muscle menders mollycoddle ligaments with a variety of massage techniques, such as the traditional 30-minute Swedish massage ($55), which infuses a firm, gentle, touch with choice aromas to ease away the stresses of daily commutes and nightly Jenga losses. The Short But Sweet facial ($41–$55) includes a skin evaluation, pore cleanse, facial massage, exfoliation, and moisturizing treatment, thwarting acne breakouts and bacteria break-ins. Clear stubborn hair forests with a mélange of waxing services, which employ nonirritating products to shape eyebrows ($12) and remove unwanted follicles from underarms ($22), lips ($12), or chins ($12), leaving skin as soft and smooth as a freshly shaved pillow. Experienced tress tamers can cut and style locks ($31–$39) into accentuating fashions for a classic, complementary beauty.
The hairstylists at Expressions are hired directly from cosmetology school and receive a minimum of nine months of training under a master stylist before trimming tresses solo. The artistic team regularly trains in New York City to stay afloat of the latest coif trends and thin-crust pizza varieties.
