Mythology has always linked beauty with danger, from the treacherous call of the Sirens to the poisonous nip of Medusa's head full of freshly permed snakes. Add some bite to your look with today's Groupon to Savarna Threading & Beauty Studio, which features locations in Hampton, Norfolk, and Virginia Beach. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get threading hair removal for the eyebrows (a $12 value) and upper lip (an $8 value; a $20 total value).
- For $10, you get $20 worth of henna-tattoo designs.
Guided by ancient beauty techniques, Savarna's team of artisans eradicates unwanted facial hair and adorns bodies with temporary and natural dye. Strands of 100 percent cotton lift eyebrow and upper-lip hair directly from their follicles in a precise threading procedure. The process uses no waxes or chemicals, and it's less irritable to skin than tweezing or scolding. Henna paste decorates the hands, ankles, or belly during the henna-design service ($10+), which imprints skin with an intricate, reddish pattern that lasts for two to three weeks. The centuries-old custom has been handed down through Indian, African, and Middle Eastern cultures and remains popular due to its temporariness, which allows people to test out potential permanent tattoos to see how their drill sergeants will react.
Savarna's Beauty Spa
The saying "If you want something done right, do it yourself" rings true for the team at Savarna's Beauty Spa—who, unsatisfied with current serums on the market, decided to create their own line of skincare. Sarvanas Mantra combines botanical ingredients with the latest skincare technology, resulting in products that both nourish and improve complexions. These serums may be used in tandem with any number of high-tech services, from microdermabrasions to collagen-boosting ultrasonic treatments. Trained specialists also turn their hand to enhancing natural beauty with eyebrow threading, makeup applications, henna tattoos, and a vast variety of lashes that are customized for each client. The beauty spa has several convenient locations to choose from, all of which maintain a high level of pampering.
