In one of the most miraculous transformations in the natural world, an ugly caterpillar wraps itself in a cocoon and emerges six to eight weeks later as either a beautiful butterfly or a much-uglier caterpillar. Revel in a more predictable and effective beautifying treatment with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a firming body wrap at Shear Xpectations (a $100 value).
Owner Artana Cassidy Mooney leads a skilled staff in a quest to help patrons look and feel their finest. The firming body wrap helps to temporarily shed water weight. After noting the client's weight, measurements, and highest Tetris score, a specialist will apply a detoxifying clay mask from the neck to the ankles before swaddling figures in warm bandages and a sauna suit. Pampered patrons choose to sit or recline for the approximately 45-minute treatment, after which the bandages will be removed and the mask wiped away. A second measurement session reveals the results of the treatment, which typically firms the physique by 1–3 inches. A trimmed torso and lankier legs strut out the salon door with an added spring in the step for about one to three days for special occasions or complicated jailbreaks.
The colorful walls, glossy wood floors, and friendly staff create a fun and welcoming atmosphere at Shear Xpectations. Though not included in today's deal, the salon also offers a lengthy list of hair services and was named Best Hair Salon by Columbia Metropolitan readers.
Owner Artana, her two sisters, and the trained stylists at Shear Xpectations help to curate chic appearances during beautifying services. Touting expertise in hair, waxing, facials, and massage, the seasoned staff helps anchor results with products from Aveda, Dermalogica, and TIGI. An online portfolio showcases the crew's work with snapshots of its skillful ’dos, which have the power to coax compliments from friends, strangers, and the insides of hats. Each sessions unfolds inside the salon's casual space, which boasts wood floors, track lighting, and dangling glass lights.
