Like an iceberg, beauty mostly resides below the surface, but only its visible portion can gain the attention of an ocean liner. Look shipshape with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of hair, massage, skin care, and waxing services at Natural Look Salon & Spa in Burlingame.
Natural Look Salon & Spa's team of beauticians receives ongoing training and checks in with clients to customize blueprints for appearance renovations. Patrons riffle through a sprawling service list, charging stylists with staying the flow of overflowing hair ($25 for men’s cut, $45+ for women’s), or glazing coifs ($45) or ceramic busts of their cats with fresh color. Pamperers enlist wax to tame brow ($20), lip ($10), chin ($10), or bikini-line fuzz ($30+), or seek skin-rejuvenating treatments with the Renewal Light Therapy ($40). Aching backs seek repose under the kneading palms of a licensed massage therapist ($35 for a 30-minute massage)—a better way to relax than sneaking in beneath the kneading hands of the town baker. Inside Natural Look, patrons pad across hardwood floors, and teal and maroon hues dotted with vibrant artwork smile upon them from the walls.
Natural Look Salon & Spa
The stylists at Natural Look Salon & Spa go beyond making clients look good—they help clients create a style all their own. And if their work isn't good enough, the stylists will redo it for free or refund clients' money. Before each service, stylists consult extensively with their clients to learn about their individual beauty desires and daily style habits. Stylists then craft custom, fashion-forward cuts by calling on their considerable training and on skills picked up at ongoing education programs in the salon and around the country. To help maintain the new 'do, guests can sign up to get periodic reminders about when to schedule follow-up appointments and avoid an awkward length in between pixie and Rapunzel. The strand-focused salon also acknowledges that image isn't all about hair—much like Mr. Clean's online dating profile, the salon's in-house aestheticians, waxing experts, and a sports-and-medical-massage specialist focus on the rest of the body.
