Like your unemployed younger brother, hair can sometimes show up uninvited and refuse to leave. Today’s Groupon will rid you of stray strands with the services of a hair-removal expert: for $12, you get $25 worth of body-waxing services at Solé Spa, located blocks from the beach on 3rd Street South. This Groupon is valid for any body-waxing service (excluding brow, lip, or chin waxing) and customers may purchase up to two Groupons to apply $50 total value toward one session.
During one of Solé's careful waxing sessions, each follicle loosens its viselike grip on your skin, and each strand is easily and painlessly plucked from its nest. Increase the chances of flagging down a taxi with an underarm wax ($20) or run faster than a taxi with newly aerodynamic limbs after a full arms ($25) or full legs ($50) session. Get smoother than a beach ball with a bikini wax ($25) or go for the gusto for hair that must go during a Brazilian bikini session ($45–$55). With Solé Spa's convenient coastal location, freshly smoothened skinsuits can strut the streets in style before an inevitable water-wicking lap swim.
There is no follicle too wispy or fuzz too peachy to avoid the professional waxen maidens at Solé Spa. Like the helpful, immortal staff chants during their pre-day huddle—if it has hair, it can be made bare. The careful and pleasant purveyors of slickness will use their years of experience and connection with the dark side to target overgrown sprouts and diligently bid them adieu.
This Groupon is only valid for new customers.

- When a girl comes accross [sic] something like this she MUST share it. I have had Brazilian bikini waxes before-usually all hair removed and they have always been painful-afterall [sic] beauty is pain right? Not here. This was as easy and painless as can be. This woman is phenomanal [sic]. – dinsettallc, Google Maps
- Sole Spa has a great atmosphere for a salon. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I was very impressed with the services. – Claire, CityVoter
Solé Spa Wellness Center
When Giovanni and Diana Manzano founded Solé Spa Wellness Center in 2007, they chose to focus on services that rejuvenated their clients physically as well as emotionally. They also chose to honor Giovanni's mother—Solé Manzano, a victim of breast cancer—by gracing the spa with her name. The haven of relaxation they've built blends contemporary touches with Asian-themed décor. Instead of relying on a throng of fireflies, the studio creates a warm atmosphere by filling rooms with earthy tones and the calming glow emanating from hanging lights.
Although waxing is their specialty, the aestheticians' body treatments—including a full-body sugar glow with imported sugar cane, tropical nut oils, and fruit enzymes—also helped to earn the spa a place on Jacksonville Magazine's Best of Jacksonville list in 2011, 2012, as well as best day spa of 2013 by Void Magazine. Manually applied airbrush tans imbue skin with a rich, sun-kissed hue that can last as long as seven days, much like a citywide game of hide-and-seek. Facials similarly make skin glow by slathering cheekbones with vitamin-rich salves or seaweed masks. During massages, therapists can employ a number of modalities, customizing every treatment to address clients' needs with a combination of Swedish, deep tissue, or reflexology techniques.
