Though best known for expanding the limits of human thought, the great philosophers were also ardent proponents of skin treatments—rarely furrowing their brows without first applying a de-furrowing cucumber mask. Today’s Groupon will wipe out your own philosophical furrows at Mancini de Paris Salon & Day Spa in Arlington. Choose from three options:
- For $55, you get Spa Package A, which includes a half-hour customized facial, a half-hour massage, and a pedicure (a $120 value).
- For $30, you get a Brazilian wax (a $65 value).
- For $30, you get a haircut (a $45 value with a stylist; a $65 value with Mancini or his wife, subject to availability).
Mancini is an expert stylist who trained at the Jacques Dessange Paris Academy and has more than 10 years of experience channeling his French-Moroccan heritage into original coiffure creations. His impressive 4,000-square-foot salon and day spa offers luxuriously indulgent treatments for soul sacks in need of salving. If opting for the spa package, you'll begin your relaxation transformation with a half-hour facial customized for your skin's needs and aesthetic aspirations. Next, spa-goers can opt for a half-hour of hot stone, deep tissue, or Swedish massage. Once you're thoroughly purged of stress nodules, an expert 'curist will perform a pampering pedicure on the leg anchors, which suffer daily indecencies from gravity and malicious sidewalk art. Customers may instead opt to reduce their follicle count with a professionally performed Brazilian wax or with a creative coif cut performed by Mancini himself, his wife, or a member of the trained stylist staff.
The custom-designed salon space at Manicini de Paris boasts sleek blond wood fixtures, comfy couches, and a bold blue receptionist's desk helmed by a friendly, knowledgeable occupant. Guests can enjoy a cappuccino as they wait to enter one of Mancini's tranquil massage rooms, one of which is contains an electric fireplace that's ideal for roasting digital marshmallows. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
