Like lawns or children, nails grow whether you’re watching them or not. Baby your fingers with today’s Groupon to Hernan Salon in Cohasset. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get a spa mani-pedi (a $63 value).
- For $50, you get a spa mani-pedi with a paraffin hand and foot treatment (a $123 value).
Hernan Salon’s squad of aestheticians revamps scruffy nails with thorough, comprehensive manicures and pedicures. Staffers commence the one-hour spa session by lassoing disobedient cuticles and expunging dead skin with an exfoliating scrub. Mitts and pups plunge into a cleansing soak before a soothing hand and arm massage kneads away stress and detaches dormant mittens. As manicure mavens sculpt keratin shields into regal arches, they apply piping hot towels to reward and relax well-behaved limbs.
To fully customize the pamper-palooza, clients can request a specific polish color during booking, and Hernan Salon will attempt to specially order the hue if it’s not already in stock. Today’s second option further moisturizes paws with a 30-minute paraffin treatment in which hands and feet submerge into a font of soft wax to infuse skin with suppleness and empathy for votive candles.
Willow Day Spa
Willow Day Spa feels more like a cozy living room than a salon. Wood floors, exposed-brick walls, and a roaring fireplace provide a backdrop for hot cups of tea from a tea bar, adding an unusually homey vibe to the act of polishing nails or styling hair. Its services, though, are strictly professional: stylists sleeken hair with nourishing products such as Moroccanoil and Global Keratin, and nail technicians leave mirror sheens with OPI, Essie, and Butter lacquers. Walk through the french doors in the back of the salon, and you'll find yourself in the spa room, where skincare products lining an old-fashioned white hutch power a slate of facials and the company's secret microdermabrasion cyborg. Customers looking for a single pampering session aren't the only ones who can enjoy the warm environs, either, as the salon also hosts celebrations for birthday girls of any age, bachelorette parties, and even cigar- and scotch-tasting events for men.
