With the possible exception of raisins, who can blame their wrinkled complexions on a reckless tanning habit, grapes are rich with natural youth-enhancing nutrients. Reap the beautifying benefits of fermented fruit with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a choice of vinotherapy services at KaLu Salon & Day Spa, located in Amherst. Choose between a wine and chocolate mani-pedi or a wine facial (a $75 value each). KaLu is closed on Mondays.
Located on Niagara Falls Boulevard, KaLu refreshes clients with a wide selection of health and beauty services administered in its warm and relaxing spa. The signature wine and chocolate mani-pedi treats tired talons and depressed digits to an intoxicating wine and grapeseed soak and pinot noir scrub. Next, a chocolate paraffin hand and foot mask will rekindle repressed thumb-sucking tendencies, and a nail shaping, buffing, and polishing will leave clipped claws and surrounding skin baby soft to match the regressive behaviors. Customers looking to turn over a new, crease-less cheek can opt for the wine-facial treatment, which uses the hydrating and exfoliating powers of red wine extracts and grapeseed to rejuvenate fatigued faces with an anti-aging and skin-tightening soak previously only attained via a curse of mermaidism.
KaLu’s friendly and professional beauty bartenders are on hand to answer questions about the transformative benefits of wine and chocolate with all the expertise of a drunken oompa loompa, but with a decidedly better bedside manner. Customers wishing to take a drip in the wine-drenched wellspring should call to set up an appointment.
- The front space, or salon area, has a trendy, upbeat atmosphere, but upon entering the spa section, customers feel an overwhelming sense of relaxation. Gentle melodies play over the sound system, and the aromas of lavender, lemon and geranium sage fill the air, the scent varying from room to room. – Jill Schmelzer, Amherst Bee

The spa’s convivial atmosphere ensures that all comers feel at home, whether their treatment interests lie in a plant-based facial or a knot-melting massage enhanced by aromatherapy and a soothing soundtrack of audiobooks read by Michael Caine. For each service, the team calls upon some of the most trusted brands in their respective fields, sprucing up hair with Aveda smoothers and brushing fingernails with chip-resistant Shellac 2 polish. The staff’s penchants for pampering and socializing converge during the weekly Martini Thursday, an evening of cocktails and luxurious mani-pedis.
