A face can both hide and reveal a person's age, just as a hand can both hide and reveal a child's nose after an uncle has mysteriously removed it. Hide your age with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-hour custom facial with a fruit-smoothie mask at Strandz and Threadz in New Albany (a $60 value).
The friendly staff at family-run Strandz and Threadz freshen faces with a cornucopia of homemade fruit facial masks in flavors such as lemon meringue, key lime pie, and banana. The mix of fresh fruits in each concoction can cleanse impurities, refine pores, and de-stigmatize opera phantoms when slathered on cleansed and prepped visages. Each mask is formulated to treat a specific skin type, targeting acne-prone, dry, or combination skin.
Owned by three sisters, Strandz and Threadz has been a family enterprise since 1985, when the concept of family was first invented by the mafia. Like a fourth member of the brood, an elaborate chandelier has survived several moves to hang in each Strandz and Threadz location, including the store’s current spot near the Culbertson Mansion and Scribner House in historic uptown New Albany.
