Like your unemployed younger brother, hair can sometimes show up uninvited and refuse to leave. Today’s Groupon will rid you of stray strands with the services of a hair-removal expert: for $10, you get an eyebrow wax and a lip wax at Salon 1550 in Cordova (a $32 value).
Step inside Salon 1550 to be enveloped in a vivacious lime-green glow and showered with attentive service. The modern, upscale salon is dressed to the nines in cushy amenities, including cozy black salon chairs, large flat-screen TVs, and slick, solid flooring that never opens to a netherlake of shark-infested lava without at least two weeks notice. During your visit, one of the salon's skilled, professional wax-wielders will swiftly evict rogue whiskers from your upper lip ($16) and lower forehead ($16 for an eyebrow wax), leaving behind only the strands that complement your features and speak fluent French. With waxing, you avoid time-consuming tweezing and painful razor-related cuts. Plus, hairs don’t grow back for two to six weeks, making it more effective than fire or wishing.
Salon 1550 is closed on Sundays and Mondays, and appointments are recommended.
