Eighty percent of America's cucumber crops go toward making pickles; the other 50 percent is distributed among spas for edible eye coverings. Harvest your senses with today's deal: $25 gets you $50 worth of spa services from My Spa by the Park in Lakeview.
My Spa's team of expert stylists, massage therapists, manicurists, and aestheticians is dedicated to delivering high-quality, professional beauty treatments while establishing personal relationships with its clientele. Cuts include a shampoo and blow-dry (starting at $40–$50 for women and $24–28 for men), and visitors looking to prep for that special event can indulge in an expert updo (starting at $50). Backs living in constant fear of crack-stepping can relax with one of several massage options: reflexology ($45 for 30 minutes), mini stress relieving ($40 for 30 minutes), and a chair massage ($20 for 15 minutes) delivered by sentient recliners possessing the most expert, gentle kneading skills and the gift of speech.
Guests looking to put on a good face can use this deal for a 30-minute professional makeup application ($40), and those who want to preserve their looks without encasing their heads in brine can opt for a one-two punch of makeup application and a lesson ($60). A classic manicure ($25) and pedicure ($40) will keep ladies' toes tapping from sandal to boot season, and the special Sportsman's Paradise MANicure ($25) and pedicure ($40) will help guys avoid awkward moments brought on by this season's open-toed cleat fad. Waxing services are available for almost any bewhiskered body part ($10–$70), and newly offered yoga classes allow guests to show off their freshly shorn shells. In addition to beautifying the world through cosmetology, My Spa works hard to greenify its salon, recycling all plastics, papers, and magazines, and using energy-efficient light bulbs and environmentally friendly products whenever possible.
