Early humans believed that hair was actually the tentacles of an octopus living inside their skull—an amusingly quaint notion now that modern science has proven it's technically a cuttlefish. Indulge your inner invertebrate with today's Groupon: for $50 you get a salon and spa package that includes a haircut, scalp massage, hydrating hair mask, foot soak, and foot mask with hot towel wraps at Portland Pearl Salon & Spa (a $120 total value).
Portland Pearl makes guests feel as welcome as a soldier in a Norman Rockwell painting by offering each a complimentary beverage when he or she enters its chic confines. Your hair makeover begins with a cut that tailors locks to your sense of style and face shape. Then, a scalp massage kneads away stress and worries about how the dinosaurs went extinct. The hydrating hair mask imbues strands with moisture and nutrients, giving them a glossy glow and the bounciness of a pogo stick. The pampering procedure concludes with a soothing foot soak and hydrating foot mask with hot towel wraps, which enfold the body’s most hardworking appendages in a warm embrace. Ample street parking makes getting to the salon and spa easier than finding rock candy in a gravel pit.
