Before the invention of blow-dryers, wealthy women would get their hair blow-dried by paying the most celebrated opera singers of the day to bellow arias at their heads at point-blank range. Today's Groupon offers a quieter but equally luxurious experience: for $35, you get a mani-pedi ($40 value) and blow-dry ($35+ value) at Safar Miami, a European-style salon in South Beach. Safar is a new outpost of the renowned Safar Coiffure salon in Boston. Its devoted, well-trained stylists work hard to make people feel good about how they look—and about how they look at photos of crying street mimes when they think no one is watching.
A Safar mani-pedi nurtures neglected nails with the tender clipping, shaping, and cuddling that most people reserve for topiary infants. As you kick back with a cappuccino, one of the salon's friendly technicians will carefully and rigorously shape, trim, buff, paint, and polish your finger and toenails till they shine bright enough to repel attackers. Next, Safar's stylists will blow-dry the frizzies and flyaways out of your luscious locks, no matter what their length or texture—leaving you with a smooth and long-lasting 'do.
Get your mani-pedi and blow-dry to beautify before a wedding, graduation, family reunion, or just for a fun night out on (or miles beneath) the town. Safar's luxuriously designed retreat and superior customer service (Citysearchers give it high marks) make any guest feel welcome. An outdoor terrace and a décor laced with Italian marble and solid walnut will make patrons feel as if they were vacationing in South of France or one of the 400 virtually identical pleasure planets featured in Star Trek.
Though Safar's Miami location is new, six Citysearchers award it a perfect five stars:
- On my fist visit I was pleasantly surprised that they had not missed a beat when it came to making me feel right at home. I was greeted right away by someone who took my coat and offered me a delicious cappuccino… – cfl2010

Owner Gaston Safar opened his first Safar Coiffure salon in Boston in his early 20s to showcase his gift for styling hair, which he honed at a young age in his parents’ salon in France. In 1998, he created a sister salon, Acote Salon, and today, the Safar family has extended their salon empire with the newest addition in Miami Beach, a second Safar Coiffure. Safar shares his European style with an experienced team of international professionals who have trained with such companies as L'Oréal Paris, Aveda, and Vidal Sassoon and showcased their work in fashion shows and magazines. Italian marble flanks walnut-wood accents and floor-to-ceiling mirrors inside the elegant beauty salon. Inside, nail services spruce up fingers and toes and waxing treatments remove unwanted body hair. An outdoor rooftop terrace hosts yoga classes and provides the proper space to dramatically show off new hairstyles in the wind.
