When hair seeds blow from your head to other bodily regions during the awkward prenatal years, they can sometimes land in unwanted places. Uproot crabgrass from private property with today's Groupon: for $7, you get your choice of an eyebrow, upper lip, or chin waxing (up to an $18 value) at Paggios on Poplar Avenue. Buy up to three of today's deal and come back three times to sample each service.
The laid-back confines of Paggios are an ideal place to partake in the depilatory assistance of facial waxing. Under the hands of a skilled aesthetician, you'll be able to finally reshape or separate a pair of quarrelling Siamese brows ($18), clear a stiff upper lip to provide a smooth surface for better novelty-moustache adhesion ($10), or wick away the hairs on your chinny-chin-chin ($10). Owner Courtney McCollum is dedicated to running her full-service salon so that customers feel like family, only without the tax obligations and passive-aggressive Thanksgiving dinner conversation. Paggios is also focused on the world outside its walls: it's currently aiding clean-up efforts for the Gulf Coast oil spill by collecting hair to be used in specially designed mats, which some organizations believe will help sop up portions of the spilled oil.
Seven Insider Pagers give Paggios an average of four stars:
- The environment is clean and colorful, and the people, as I said, obviously enjoy their work. I'd recommend this place to anyone, male or female, young or old. You won't regret it, particularly if, like me, you're someone who doesn't usually enjoy salon experiences. – Bonnie B.
- Everyone was so friendly and it was just a good time. I could just hang out there. I will be returning. – Anonymous
Focused almost exclusively on hair services, Paggios staff clip, color, and style the 'dos of their clients. Inside the quaint, stylish studio, small mirrors dot the wall alongside a row of stylists' chairs where men and women can kick back during cuts or even special-event updos.
