Unlike stuffy holiday work parties, facials cleanse, purify, and relax the recipient. Put down the punch with today’s Groupon to Paris Salon & Spa in San Rafael. Choose between the following options:
- For $42, you get a 60-minute European facial (an $85 value).
- For $45, you get a 60-minute multivitamin facial (a $95 value).<p>
Inside a bright, airy space, Paris Salon & Spa’s attentive staffers wield high-end products from brands such as Aveda and SkinCeuticals to cleanse, hydrate, and restore suppleness to the face. In the European facial, an epidermal expert cleans the frontispiece before sloughing off old cells and removing pedestrian parking tickets tucked behind eyebrows. Steam therapy opens the pores and relaxes the body, before a facial, neck, and shoulder massage further obliterates tension. Finally, a mask leaves skin more well-balanced than a loving sitcom family eating a three-course breakfast. The multivitamin facial aims to reverse the ravages of time, using vitamin A to increase elasticity and vitamin C to synthesize collagen. Antioxidants and essential oils also nourish skin, alleviating the embarrassment of starving pores that absorb entire meals topically.
Heroes and Hairoines
There's a party every weekend at Heroes and Hairoines. People chat between sips of wine, beer, and mimosas, and when they leave, they walk out with chic new hairstyles and nail designs. Located in the heart of San Rafael, Heroes and Hairoines greets its clients with comforts well beyond the complimentary drinks at other salons, day spas, and best-host competitions. All someone needs to do is step up to the blow-dry or waxing bar or one of several salon chairs.
As a René Furterer flagship salon, Heroes and Hairoines relies on the Parisian haircare line of natural products as well as additional treatments from the likes of Bumble and bumble., Aveda, or Kérastase—whatever is required to create looks worthy of gracing the cover of a fashion magazine. Men's grooming services are also in the team's stylish wheelhouse, as are hot-stone massages and aesthetic treatments. Aestheticians can administer facials, wax the face and body, and sculpt nails during mani-pedis.
