Today's modern world, with its plethora of countries, panoply of waterways, and constantly changing laws about what is and what isn't "mail fraud," is as confusing as it is stressful. Get a clear definition of relaxation with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of salon and spa services at Pelletier Salon and Spa on Staten Island.
Pelletier Salon and Spa helps clients look and feel their best with massages, mani-pedis, and other services using eco-friendly products. At each haircut ($40 women, $28 men), seasoned stylists create beautiful strand-shapes with shears, blow-dryers, and Play-Doh spaghetti factories. Locks shine after basking in organic, ammonia-free single-process color ($45+). Skilled aestheticians nourish faces with a selection of all-natural masks and scrubs ($65), available in flavors such as mint and pineapple.
Relaxation massages ($45 for 30 minutes) make muscles release distressed damsels tied up in their knots. Like a documentary on the Dewey Decimal System, the Divine spa package ($120) enraptures guests for two hours, soothing hands with a peppermint-lavender manicure and feet with an aromatherapy pedicure.
Pelletier adorns its walls with artwork and photography by local artists, and it stays environmentally friendly by fueling up with Con Ed's Green Power program and cleaning up with planet-friendly products. The salon also donates hair clippings to Matter of Trust, which makes them into mats useful for soaking up oil spills and ketchup-factory explosions.
