The healing properties of plants are renowned, from skin-soothing aloe vera to black-eye-placating bags of frozen peas. Seek succor from chlorophyll-filled things with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a spa-facial package at Mood Swings Aveda Salon in Tempe (a $115 total value). The package includes:
- 60-minute facial (an $80 value)
- Eye-zone treatment (a $35 value)<p>
Mood Swings Salon’s phalanx of aestheticians combines extensive training with plant-based Aveda products in complexion-enhancing skin services. During the one-hour facial, pores revel under flurries of finely powdered tourmaline designed to make skin smoother and clearer. The eye-zone treatment spiffs up under-eye areas with an amalgam centered on diminishing fine lines, puffiness, and the dark circles that mark sleepless nights or days spent looking through ink-rimmed telescopes.
Guided by socially conscious principles for more than 30 years, Aveda produces a full line of natural beauty products carried at nearly 7,000 salons and spas. Popular gorgeous-makers such as Shampure shampoo and witch-hazel hair spray deliver on Aveda’s commitment to well-rounded earthly beauty with eco-friendly packaging cradling ingredients derived from the world’s finest and least selfish plants.
Though Mood Swings Aveda Salon sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Mood Swings Aveda Salon and Skin Spa
Occasionally, Mood Swings Aveda Salon and Skin Spa moonlights as a studio. Sometimes camera-toting members of the media stop by to check out this season’s trends or new hair products. Other times, models strut or flutter from imaginary wind gusts during Urban Tribe and other fashion photo shoots. Perhaps most importantly, Mood Swings periodic studio space hosts educational seminars for its talented team of stylists, who learn advanced tips in coloring and other techniques from Aveda professional instructors.
This commitment to the art and science of hair justifies Arizona Foothills magazine selecting Mood Swings Aveda Salon and Skin Spa as its best salon of 2011. The praise coincides with that from AZCentral.com, which named Mood Swings Best Trendy Salon for “translating cool, avant-garde styles into wearable, everyday looks.” Stylists craft these looks with natural, plant-based products from Aveda, and supplement the service with pampering that can include a complimentary scalp massage, hand facial, and finishing touches to clients’ makeup. A comprehensive services menu treats the entire body, ranging from natural skin products that rejuvenate complexions to pedicures that soothe feet with a dual-jet therapeutic whirlpool after unsuccessful attempts to walk barefoot across a hot charcoal grill.
