Eighty percent of America's cucumber crops go toward making pickles; the other 50 percent are distributed among spas for edible eye coverings. Harvest your senses with today's deal: for $50, you'll get $100 worth of beauty services at Salon Norman-Dee. The full-service salon in Northeast Philadelphia features a full menu of aesthetic enhancers, including waxing, hair care, and facials.
Salon Norman-Dee's beauty services put the aesthetic back in anesthetic by letting you close your eyes and bliss out in a stress-free sanctuary while surgical stylists operate on you from head to toe, skipping only the gall bladder, because it's already sexier than it has any right to be. The salon's seasoned scissors-snippers can manage and mold any mop with a cut and style ($40+), coax manes into an anti-grav updo ($65+), or trim bangs ($10+) back into shape after a long winter of stress-eating. Prices increase for services booked with a senior stylist. Otherwise, skip taming in favor of total termination with waxing services such as an eyebrow shaping ($14) or a Brazilian bikini wax ($50) to prevent samba-related thigh burns. Non-hair-related beauty rescues include nail treatments such as the rejuvenating spa manicure ($24+) or pedicure ($45+).
Along with these practical primping programs, you can also treat your face to the kind of love it's not getting from other faces with one of Salon Norman-Dee's indulgent facials. A customized facial ($75+) curbs unruly complexions with a deep pore cleansing, light exfoliation, and mask and moisturizer tailored to skin type. Otherwise, splurge on a collagen moisturizing treatment ($105) to terra-form your face from desert planet to fecund paradise with a little sweet almond oil, marigold, and vitamin C. A vitamin C mask ($125), meanwhile, will make your face look younger without the hassle of having your head transformed into a baby's by an overly literal djinni. Open every day, Salon Norman-Dee has extended hours until 8 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. This Groupon must be used in one visit; call ahead to schedule an appointment.
