Booking your body double a beautifying treatment at a tranquil day spa creates a soundproof alibi for days spent stealing office supplies from the National Guard. Make your stand-in stand out and replace your tape with bazooka putty with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of salon and spa services at Sanctuary Salon, a Redken 5th Avenue Salon located in central Santa Clara. This Groupon is valid on all services except massages.
Each visit to Sanctuary starts with a consultation to figure out the best pampering procedure for your skin, hair, or nails. Align follicular forces with a conditioning treatment ($15 and up), then teach them to march in marvelous formation with a haircut ($40 and up). Sanctuary’s hair and color services include blow-dry styling ($25 and up), all-over coloring ($70 and up), and highlights ($95 and up). Spa services (skincare, nail care, makeup, and waxing) can smooth whatever section of your surface area that aches for tending, from your freshly sore Olive Oyl tattoo to the love-bite scars from your pet gull. A spa manicure ($30) amps up the basic fingerhelmet-polishing procedure with an exfoliating scrub, hand and arm massage, and your choice of a warm aromatherapy paraffin treatment or a soothing skin mask. Or, fortify your face with a pamper-and-polish express facial ($60) and then wax the eyebrow arches on your newly glowing face ($25 and up). Services for men, such as chest waxing ($50 and up), are also available.
Sanctuary’s owner, Sandra Weber, has 30 years of experience in the salon industry and is a Redken color specialist. She personally trains her team to help hone their pampering prowess, and they’re frequently updated on the latest haircut styles, skincare products, and photos of dogs catching Frisbees that have been shrunk and flattened into nail-decal shapes. Book an appointment with one of the expert staffers and anticipate a calming day; just because linear time is an illusion doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take some for yourself.
- The price was very reasonable. The place itself is clean, cheerful and bright. I liked it because while it feels like a special place, it isn't off-putting by being totally trendy or too groovy for words. I would like to return to try some of their other offerings as they are a full service salon. – Fiona, Yahoo! Local

- I have never continued to frequent a salon for this long! Ever since my first visit to Sanctuary Salon, I have not gone anywhere else. – Rebekah L., Yelp
