What You'll Get
Even the loveliest artwork requires upkeep, which is why Manet's Olympia is regularly removed for bikini waxes. Maintain museum-quality beauty with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of waxing services at Renaissance Salon & Spa.
Renaissance Salon & Spa—a full-service, Aveda-concept salon and spa located in a carefully renovated 1911 farmhouse—hosts a team of attentive aestheticians who selectively plunder hairs from underarms ($23), legs ($50 for half leg, $75 for full leg), and nether regions via a traditional bikini-line wax ($45). Waxing provides a longer-lasting hairlessness than shaving, and when the hair does come back after a few weeks, it's meek, soft, and easily scared back into the follicle with banging pans or the threat of another round of wax. The friendly, professional staff weans out wily follicles any day of the week, ousting outgrowth just in time for the start of beach season. For meticulously manicured human hedges, expect appointments to last 30–45 minutes.

About Renaissance Salon & Spa
Renaissance Salon & Spa took over its stately 1920s farmhouse in the year 2000. There, aestheticians make the most of the homey setting with treatment packages that really let clients settle in. A Euphoria package, for example, begins with a a warm towel treatment for the face and a scalp massage with flower water. Guests then step into the spa's clawfoot tub, soaking in essential oils and rose petals. Another package, the Hot Toddy for the Body, evokes the aromas of that restorative drink with a nectar bath followed by a bourbon-and-brown-sugar scrub that might have you furtively licking your wrist for the rest of the day.
If you don't have a whole afternoon to lounge about, other services include spray tans, hair coloring, and pedicures. Many treatments also incorporate organic and botanical ingredients—Aveda botanical skin resurfacing serves as an alternative to microdermabrasion, and a fusion hot-stone massage gets its fresh scent from native plants.
