A thing of beauty is a joy forever, unlike a thing of clumsy, which usually gets broken right away, or a thing of Vegemite, which molders in the cupboard for years before getting trashed. Find lasting beauty with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $65 worth of hair and spa services at Refuge Salon and Spa on Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake.
Recently featured on the Bravo TV show Tabatha's Salon Takeover, Refuge's skilled staff and revamped quarters reflect their ship-shape shop-ops. Choose from a bounty of beautifying services, such as face-flattering precision cuts ($35–$65) or a customized hair-repair treatment ($60) to revivify run-down head threads. Perk up fatigued faces with a gentle pumpkin enzyme peel for sensitive skin ($55) or deep clean pores with a customized facial ($50). Skilled waxologists can preen, primp, and defuzz underarms ($15), bikini lines ($30), and brow mustaches ($15), and expert face painters will apply an artistic stroke to the canvas mounted on your neck-easel with a makeup application ($60) for special events or teach basic instructions for self-application.
Modern and cozy, Refuge's interior is a relaxing oasis in which clients can sip on a bevy of beverages including beer, coffee, bottled water, sodas, or mimosas squeezed fresh from the salon's champagne tree. Refuge also offers free parking in their spacious lot for owners of horseless metal chariots.
- I've had facials in a few places in the L.A. area. This is by far the best place. My skin has never felt better. – Alex T., Yelp, 09/13/2010
- After this wonderful haircut, I feel prettier and happier when I look in the mirror, and that's life-changing in my book. I've been getting compliments left and right, even from people I don't really know. – sofia34, Citysearch
