A salon and spa is at once relaxing and invigorating, much lounging in a beanbag chair perched upon the soothing waters of an active geyser. Unwind and re-energize with today's Groupon: for $35, you get $70 worth of salon and spa services at Juut Salonspa in Palo Alto.
Juut Salonspa is an Aveda salon and spa armed with a brigade of trained artists who pamper patrons through a variety of hair and body services. Hair tamers crack their scissor-shaped whips during professional haircuts ($70+; prices vary by stylist) and brighten monochromatic locks during highlight services ($110–$240 for partial; $130–$275 for full). Customers receiving hair services also enjoy a complimentary shoulder and neck massage. A brow ($30+) or bikini ($48+) wax leaves skin smoother than Fred Astaire prancing atop spilled marbles, and the Shellac manicure ($55+) protects nails from chipping for up to two weeks. The bright and airy establishment also houses a small army of folks who provide manly haircuts ($70+; prices vary by stylist), masculine nail maintenance ($25+), and gentlemanly waxing services ($30+).
Author and Juut SalonSpa owner David Wagner channels a childhood spent watching nature’s beauty into his Aveda salon’s eight locations. The studio stylists and other staff members, many of whom benefit from the company’s extensive training program, perform services beneath shelves laden with Aveda products. The botanically sourced elixirs repair and sculpt hair naturally without subjecting it to other products’ unpleasant chemicals or a robot hairdresser’s endless questions about love.
