Hela Spa/ Ted Gibson - Georgetown: Pamper Your Nails or Revitalize Your Skin at Hela Spa

Jump to: Details | Reviews

Actress Greta Garbo may be famous for her work in silent films, quiet commercials, and non-verbal print ads, but her most enduring contribution to society lies outside the entertainment industry and in the exciting world of spa treatments.

After watching dailies of a scene in The Gay Cavalier, one of Garbo's earliest films, the director threatened to fire the actress because her performance lacked beautiful pores. She retreated to devise a revolutionary facial-cleansing technique using the available backstage props: cream pies, shaving cream, silly string, canes, top hats, and clarifying detox masks. Garbo's career took off and the facial became popular across America.

Hela Spa is the only remaining establishment to still offer the Garbo facial, omitting all the original ingredients except the clarifying detox mask. Oh, and they also offer amazing mani-pedis. Lucky for you, you get both at an incredible discount with today's Groupon.

Today, Groupon is going to pretty you up because we care. For $60, you get a premium, rejuvenating facial (a $120 value) or two mani-pedis (a $240 value) at Hela Spa. Longtime customers rave about Hela's friendly and knowledgeable technicians—go experience it for yourself and save a ton of money while you're at it.

Hela, a premium spa with a wide variety of treatments, has two locations. You can get a facial at either the DC location at 3209 M St. or the Chevy Chase location (called Ted Gibson Salon & Hela Spa) at 5481 Wisconsin Ave. The two mani-pedis are only available at the Chevy Chase location. Either way you'll be treated with professional, cordial care and fabulous service.

Reviews

Yelpers give Hela Spa and Ted Gibson Salon & Hela Spa in Chevy Chase gets four stars. Here's what people are saying:

  • I'd been complaining to friends about how oily my skin was and how my pores seemed to appear so much larger than before. So, a friend advised me that she'd had the same issues before receiving facials from Tiffany at Hela Spa. I must say that my first visit to Hela Spa was the beginning of many more to come. Tiffany, was wonderful! She was very thorough in addressing my concerns. She provided with me information that I'd never known prior to our consultation. I truly appreciate her patience and knowledge. – Donata J.
  • My boyfriend was even surprised- apparently he didn't realize that facials could show immediate results...now he wants one, too!!! If the results of a facial can make a low-maintenance man change his tune, you should take notice. – Ellen F.
  • I received the Greta Garbo Facial which lasts about an hour. The esthetician was wonderful. After she left me in the room to begin relaxing she reviewed all my paperwork. When she came back she asked questions and was able to intelligently discuss what I had written. I think she did an amazing job. The place was relatively calm and peaceful. I went on a weekday evening and found it really nice. The staff is very professional. I also liked the amount of products that are hard to find sold in the waiting area. – Christina P.

Nival Salon and Spa

With one swivel to the left or right, clients in Nival Salon and Spa's styling chairs might catch a glimpse of Miss Sweden, Miss France, or Miss Netherlands. In early 2012, the international beauty queens entrusted their good looks to the salon's celebrity stylists, nationally acclaimed beauty instructors, and award-winning aestheticians. Though the pageant stars only popped in for a day, Nival regularly pampers a high-profile clientele—the cast of Bravo's Real Housewives of DC has a standing alliance with the business.

Regardless of who stops by, Nival's team members harness their talents to create a personalized experience. In addition to all the basic treatments—haircuts, mani-pedis, massages, et cetera—the spa offers technology-driven services and alternative medicine. A third-generation acupuncturist calls upon more than 10 years of experience as he stimulates natural healing and makes clients look like balding porcupines. In contrast, an aesthetician prompts cell renewal with a mechanical wand that buffs the skin's surface.
