What You'll Get
Though technically only one "o" away from saloons, salons distinguish themselves by frowning upon gunslinging and investing in full-length doors. Turn the handle of relaxation with today's Groupon to Fresco Salon in Arlington. Choose between two options:
- For $23, you get a manicure and deluxe pedicure (a $47 total value).
- For $44, you get a haircut and partial highlights (an $88 total value).
Fresco Salon rejuvenates clients in a relaxing and cheerful atmosphere replete with aqua walls, fresh-cut flowers, and a staff of smiling professionals. Opt for a manicure (a $12 value) and a deluxe pedicure (a $35 value), where tired pups are led to steaming baths containing sea salts and bubbles filled with the innocence of youth. Essential herbs such as lavender, rose, or fruit passion are added to the footbaths. Tension dissolves into the salon's plush massage chairs while spa specialists scrub away rough skin with a scented exfoliating scrub that leaves skin as smooth as a freshly greased orca. A warm foot and leg treatment then helps reduce swelling in shins and shoe dwellers, followed by a hot rock leg and foot massage with soothing peppermint foot cream. As peds recover from their pampering, top talons get equally primped, as fingernails and cuticles are trimmed and cleaned, treated to a warm- oil massage, and then topped with a coat of colored or French polish, and teeny, tiny berets.
Alternatively, clients can tame truculent tresses with a cut (a $23 value) and partial highlight (a $65 value) that proves a much more reliable method for adding strand shine than at-home methods involving lemon juice or helmets filled with hollandaise. A wide arsenal of professional products from TIGI, Tea Tree, CHI, and Bed Head await to help cool crazed coiffures into manageable manes, and the professional stylists go to great lengths to ensure each experience at Fresco parallels the calm obtained from a bedtime story read by Morgan Freeman. Additional fees may apply for extensive coloring services or extra-long hair.

About Fresco Salon
Fresco Salon’s five-person team ranges from stylist Desiree, who stays abreast of the latest looks through continuing education, to cosmetologist Candy, who earned the nickname with her sweet disposition. The staff members' diversity reflects their diverse services. Desiree tends locks with custom trims and coloring tailored to clients’ face shapes, aided by products such as Bed Head Superstar or Curls Rock. Cosmetologists, meanwhile, wax away unwanted hair or tend skin with soothing products from brands such as Chi Organics Olive Nutrient Therapy, a botanical-filled line infused with essential oils and olive ingredients. Armed with a full spectrum of polish colors from OPI, Orly, and a bottle of melted Skittles, the two nail techs can paint natural nails or acrylics with vibrant hues.
