The body stands up to gravity's bullying every day, and the mind and soul leisurely spend their time playing sudoku and filling up on chicken soup. Reward your body with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get an organic margarita pedicure (a $25 value) and keratin express blowout (a $75 value) at Karma Salon & Spa in Lake Hiawatha (a $100 total value).
Karma Salon & Spa’s owner, Rachel Nelson, uses her training with established brands including Aveda and Vidal Sassoon to perfect the revitalizing services at her elegant sanctuary. The organic margarita pedicure gets overworked feet to drop their complaints with a relaxing lemon or lime soak, which sheds dead skin cells from lower limbs and sends them off to work as testers at lotion companies. Little-piggy pamperers then scrub feet in a salty citrus mix to polish the healthy skin to a radiant glow, and a foot rub delights floor stompers with deep, calming attention. To give northerly features some loving, an express keratin blowout indulges damaged and frizzy hair with a formaldehyde-free Brazilian smoothing system, which delivers a coat of strengthening keratin to plow through the frayed cuticles and smooth strands to create a rich, even, glossy surface. Designed to fill in holes damaged by chemicals, blow-drying, and overly sharp dialogue bubbles, the pelt-disciplining treatment lulls the frazzled strands to sleek sleep with calming words and keratin lullabies.
Karma Salon & Spa
After meeting in beauty school, friends Rachel Nelson and Mara Malzone envisioned their very own studio for transforming hair and pampering clients. Since becoming the co-owners of Karma Salon & Spa, the passionate duo's dream has come to life, like Pinocchio after he met a genie in a bottle. The two women traveled the world to train with such renowned names as Vidal Sassoon and Wella, and they used their newfound know-how to assemble a crack team of stylists, who overhaul coifs with texturizing treatments or an Italian line of ammonia-free color. Staffers also revivify skin with organic facials and relax muscles with massage therapy. Foot treatments, such as the Mind Eraser, soothe lower limbs with a honey-and-sugar scrub and fragrant lavender mask while ousting painful kickball-related memories.
