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 Impressions Salon Boutique & Med Spa in Buda.
Shear Impressions' affable staff spruces up bodies' outer edges with hair, skin, and nail services. Create a vibrant new frame for facial features with an expert haircut ($20+ for men, $43+ for women), splash a monotonous mane with a color protein treatment ($20), or combine the two services to distance yourself further from a recently extracted twin. The skin-smoothing specialists also mow down extraneous eyebrow hairs ($15–$25) and tenacious bikini-line fuzz ($45). The Ultimate Manicure Therapy employs a sea-salt soak and apricot-seed hand scrub to moisturize burrito-holders ($25), and Hot Stone Manicure Therapy sends healing waves of heat barreling into the hands ($40). From the comfort of the spa's padded chairs, clients bask in a warm atmosphere of yellow walls and homey décor.
Shear Impressions Salon Boutique & Med Spa
Earth tones, wood fixtures, and vintage furniture. Shear Impressions is more like a quaint home than a typical salon and spa. That's due to the aesthetic decisions of Veronica Vallejo, who opened the doors to the cozy getaway in 1999. A licensed cosmetologist, her 27 years of experience in skincare allow her to understand what clients want out of a visit: pampering, personal attention, and up-to-date fashion expertise. She leads her team of stylists and aestheticians by regularly attending workshops, which keep her abreast of current styles, techniques, and products. Sharing her knowledge, she and her team style hair using products such as Kenra and Paul Mitchell and keep skin youthful and radiant by employing facials and peels. They also enhance natural beauty with waxing, makeup application, and mani-pedis.
