Looking younger often requires standing next to something much older, such as a brontosaurus femur or the future. Get a fresh complexion in the present with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a Crown facial at Skin Guru, located inside the Beehive Salon & Boutique (an $80 value).
The Skin Guru, a.k.a. licensed aesthetician Lena Golden, enchants the epidermis with innovative skin-soothing custom facials, waxing services, and consultations. Employing Pamela Hill products, the Crown facial makes pores feel like royalty with 60 minutes of relaxation and purification. The experience begins with a thorough cleansing and a steam-and-enzyme exfoliation mask to dissolve dead surface cells. Following gentle extraction of pore-clogging culprits, a massage leaves hands, feet, and arms loose and limbo pole–ready. The cozy salon, with vintage furniture and peaceful plant life, helps calm vexed bodies and minds, inviting guests to melt worries away by the fireplace with a cup of coffee in hand.
In her more than six years in the industry, aesthetician Lena Golden has earned a loyal customer following as well as an esteemed nickname: the Skin Guru. Since solidifying her reputation as one of Milwaukee's distinguished beauty experts, Lena has repurposed herself under the new name of Golden Vanity. Here, she and best friend and resident hair stylist, Janelle Bonus, form a creative and aesthetic partnership that beautifies their clients from the inside out. A seven-year shearing veteran, Janelle uses her deft scissors to shape hair into stylish new looks while transforming strands with all-over color and strategic foil placement. With Lena’s art adorning the walls, the seasoned aesthetician specializes in skincare treatments including microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and a trio of specialty facials that she named after their intended spiritual target—heart, crown, and third eye. Lena can also customize each treatment with add-ons that enhance specific features such as anti-aging galvanic eye treatments, lip exfoliation, and clown noses.
