Though inner beauty is important, the fact remains that outer beauty is still often used to determine SAT scores and income-tax rates. Get a leg up on life with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get skin-clarifying services at Splash Salon & Spa in Bridgewater (a $180 total value). The package includes:
- A Splash signature facial (a $70 value)
- A microdermabrasion treatment (a $110 value)
Splash Salon & Spa’s staff of professional aestheticians lavishes patrons and beautifies dermises with an array of helpful skin services. The 90-minute visitation starts with a microdermabrasion treatment, which uses the gentle abrasion of tiny crystals to slough off dead skin cells and encourage new cell growth by shouting motivational slogans. The Splash signature facial coats the face in aromatic cleansers and commands exfoliation to thoroughly uncork pores of dirt and mustachioed oil prospectors. A clarifying mask and massage of the neck, shoulders, arms, and hands rounds out the wheel of relaxation. Newly minted faces gather up a finalizing slather of moisture that soaks into cleared pores, resulting in soft, radiant skin.
Patrons of Splash Salon & Spa are welcomed into its sanctuary-like atmosphere, marked by an indoor glass fountain, soft earthy tones, and wooden décor. Large, full-body mirrors allow patrons to practice serene postures, and a statue of Buddha meditating among the foliage periodically enlightens clients with lentil-soup recipes.
Splash Salon and Spa
Owner Ronnie Keller has made Bridgewater Commons Mall his second home. Early in the morning, he saunters past storefronts, stopping at the threshold of Splash Salon and Spa, flanked by two tall, obelisk-shaped lanterns that serve to welcome both patrons and fashion-forward moths. Past the reception desk, where water cascades down glass panes, Ronnie settles in for the day, overseeing a team of beautification experts as they perform a slate of pampering services. Funky aluminum mirrors reflect hairstylists' newly forged masterpieces as nail technicians soften skin with sea-salt scrubs and paraffin waxes before camouflaging fingers in a choice of polish. Eight styles of massage revive tired bodies, and facials, waxing, and cosmetic services keep visitors looking radiant and magic mirrors from making meaningless small talk. Posttreatment, clients can peruse a stash of Bumble and bumble., Paul Mitchell, and Moroccanoil products that eagerly await adoption.
