Spa packages make an excellent Valentine’s Day gift, as most lovebirds are weary from being shot with Cupid’s arrow and carving love letters in the walls of their sweetheart’s apartment. Heal lovesick bodies with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a Valentine’s Day spa package at Guy and Company Salon Group in Hot Springs (a $275 total value). The package includes the following:
- A chocolate body wrap (a $90 value)
- A 50-minute chocolate signature facial (a $75 value)
- A chocolate foot scrub (a $40 value)
- A chocolate foot mud mask (a $40 value)
- An Eco-fin luxury hand paraffin treatment (a $30 value)<p>
The professional technicians at Guy and Company Salon Group sweeten their regular treatments with chocolate-infused products that add a taste of romance to Valentine’s Day-themed spa packages. After visitors nibble on chocolate-covered strawberries, a chocolate- and brown sugar-infused body wrap conditions and exfoliates skin. For the signature facial, aestheticians frost faces with Aveda and Dermalogica products, smoothing skin with an exfoliant before they serve guests a mug of hot chocolate as a hydrating mask penetrates pores. Cocoa flavors a two-step foot treatment, during which attendants loosen dead skin cells with a scrub and then soften paws with a moisture-rich mud mask. Lastly, technicians warm hands with a biodegradable paraffin wax before placing them in herbal mitts that seal in moisture better than a body suit made of plastic wrap.
Hydei Childs at Guy & Co Salon & Skincare Center
Guy & Co's team of beauticians overhauls outmoded outer appearances with an aesthetically driven menu of services for hair and skin. Hydei Childs, the salon's skincare expert, wields Dermalogica products in a private treatment room during classic and luxe facials such as the caviar collagen mask. Out in the salon, scissors-wielding stylists reimagine manes with haircuts, coloring treatments, and upright cowlick extensions, or aestheticians soften epidermal expanses with facials and waxing sessions. Botanical products from Moroccanoil and Aveda help staffers accomplish beauty-boosting feats and are also available for purchase à la carte. Sandy hues wash over the salon's tranquil interior, where walls of ornately wrought mirrors allow patrons to view their freshly shorn hairdos.
