Having to wait for wet nail polish to dry curbs people's natural urges to plunge fingers into frosting, or to tickle the mailman too hard. Control your impulses with today's Groupon to Face and Body by Taylor in Oakland. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get a punch card for five elite manicures (a $60 value).
- For $25, you get five brow waxes—one eyebrow design waxing (a $15 value) and four touchup waxes (a $10 value each; a $55 total value).
At Face and Body by Taylor, 30-minute elite manicures begin with a shaping and grooming of the cuticles, followed by a hand massage with a choice of scented lotion. Clients can also opt to have their nails polished or buffed. During a 15-minute eyebrow design waxing, client and aesthetician chat about desired shape and how to frown more efficiently. After discussing any skin sensitivities, the brow sculptor will determine which kind of wax to use and spend the remaining minutes restructuring eye-threads. The four touch-up appointments each take about 10 minutes to redefine expression makers. While waiting, clients are welcome to quaff a complimentary beverage or cocktail.
Face and Body by Taylor
What do teenage girls and pro football players have in common? They both want to look good. For nearly two decades, Face and Body by Taylor has been pampering clients who range from prom-prepping teens to professional athletes, including former Oakland Raider Charles Woodson. Backed by a service menu that caters to both genders, the spa's certified technicians carefully wax eyebrows, soften skin with homemade aromatherapy body scrubs, and primp fingers and toes with careful buffing and an optional layer of Shellac, Gelish, or OPI lacquer. The spa eschews the feminine pink paint and framed watercolors of X chromosomes typical of a standard salon and instead features sophisticated wood-laden decor that ensures a welcoming environment for men and women alike.
