After a long day of besieging steppe settlements, the Mongol hordes liked to kick back with a vigorous massage, a copy of the Daily Khan, and a nice warm glass of fermented yak's milk. Conquer your own serenity with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of salon and spa services at Shear Heaven Salon at Windsor, on the Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway, between Hillcrest and Coit.
Shear Heaven, a popular, full-service salon and spa, relaxes and beautifies clients in an elegant yet unpretentious environment. Two floors—the ground floor houses the hair and nail experts, and the top floor is dedicated to the soothing spa—furnish plenty of space for the vast array of services offered. Have tresses snipped, shampooed, and styled into chicness ($40+), or revel in a 30-minute Swedish massage to melt away knots, worries, and hidden pockets of iron ore ($35). Groupon holders can fan-kick fancy toes and fingers after a spa mani-pedi ($55), go smoothly to the beach with a double-underarm wax ($50), or lay back and envision a perfectly velveted visage during a European facial with exfoliation, a must-do preparation when having a plaster cast of your face made for posterity ($70).
Funky, colorful swirls swoop across the walls, belying The Windsor’s parallel life as an upscale seniors’ residence. The friendly, professional staff keeps the atmosphere fun and lively, and the peaceful spa vibe upstairs allows clients’ cares to float away like squirrels slathered in antigravity grease.
