Early humans believed that hair was actually the tentacles of an octopus living inside their skull—an amusingly quaint notion now that modern science has proven it's technically a cuttlefish. Indulge your inner invertebrate with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $110 worth of services at Imena Salon and Spa on California Avenue.
Imena Salon and Spa freshens up cranial covers and takes haughty hair down a peg with a variety of hair services that go well beyond the reliable cut ($29+). Add-on conditioning treatments ($14+) feed malnourished manes with necessary nutrients and moisture. The full foil coloring ($84+) transforms faded follicles back into technicolor tresses. Otherwise, combine a spa manicure ($45) and pedicure ($55) from Imena's nail services, during which you'll enjoy therapeutic soaks, massage, exfoliation, and more. Facials ($75–$95) can be custom concocted to match your skin, and the 60-minute clarifying back treatment pampers the body's oft-neglected textbook toter with a cleansing, exfoliating, and purifying session that releases geysers of pent-up tension from your pore's blow holes ($75). You can also remove prickly skin sprouts with a waxing of the brow & lip ($25), or go full-throttle and render your south-of-the-equator samba-compliant with a Brazilian ($70+).
All of Imena's skilled stylists and A-list aestheticians have been thoroughly educated by top beauty academies in the deadly art of making you look good. Sink into a spa seat and switch your mind-matter to autopilot as Imena's staff fills the air with music of snipping scissors and banishes your stresses to where all lost things go—the last place you look.
