Your face is your personal billboard; if it falls into disrepair, teenagers will be tempted to spray paint it with mustaches. Stave off surly graffiterati with today’s Groupon to Salon Solaris at Sunstate Academy. This Groupon is valid only at the school’s Fort Myers campus. Choose between the following options:
- For $8, you get a 45-minute facial with mask (a $17 value).
- For $20, you get a Gold spa package, which includes a two-hour facial and a spa mani-pedi (a $40 value).
Under the watchful eye of experienced instructors, the emerging cosmetology students of Salon Solaris at Sunstate Academy rejuvenate stressed skull sheathes and pamper phalanges with European-style facials and traditional mani-pedis. Favored faces receive 45 minutes or two hours of care and attention as one of the salon’s resident skin scholars sets to work exfoliating and extracting as necessary. The technician then applies a hydrating mask and all-natural Repêchage skincare products sourced from the ocean, leaving faces fresh, clean, and twinkling like a starfish under a strobe light. With the Gold spa package, beauty seekers also receive an intensive hand-and-foot treatment before being topped off with high-profile polishes from Tammy Taylor and Creative Nail. While the staff at Salon Solaris is comprised of students, the expert instruction doled out within Sunstate Academy’s sunny yellow walls has led many graduates to careers in their own salons, as well as with clients such as Ralph Lauren, Macy’s, and the conglomerate of cognizant sock puppets that secretly control the fashion industry.
Salon Solaris at Sunstate Academy
The palm tree-lined campus at Sunstate Academy betrays its function by appearing on the surface to be an upscale salon. Yet, instead of performing the services themselves, the professionals inside are teaching and observing students as they put into practice their knowledge of cosmetology at the school's Salon Solaris. At pristine styling and wash stations, they cut, relax, color, perm, and condition hair. With the diversity of student interest comes diversity of services, and patrons might be pleasantly surprised to find dreadlocks, candy curls, finger waves, and elephant ears on the menu. The apprentices also dabble in nail and spa services, performing mani-pedis, and facials.
