Though pursued throughout history, the Fountain of Youth lost its appeal when explorers who hopped into its waters were immediately kicked out for adult swim. Turn back just enough time with today’s Groupon to Studio 262 Salon in Middleton. Choose between the following options:
- For $59, you get one Caribbean-therapy body treatment (a $120 value).
- For $79, you get two rosemary-mint body treatments (a $170 value).<p>
The staff at Studio 262, an Aveda Concept Salon, immerses bodies in a roster of destressing body treatments brimming with hydrating nutrients and invigorating herbs. To begin the Caribbean-therapy body treatment, a warm mask envelops silhouettes in a creamy layer of cocoa butter. Next, a steam tent teams up with an exfoliation session to refresh epidermal surfaces before a scalp and face massage ousts the tension associated with reminding hair to pay the rent.
Therapists lock in dermal dew after a final moisturizing session. Meanwhile, the rosemary-mint body treatment shrouds statures in a wrap charged with essential oils of organic rosemary, peppermint, and lavender. The cooling serums merge with the warm touch of a therapist to invigorate the body, kindling the hot-and-cold sensation of pie à la mode or a steamy soak in a bathtub-shaped ice sculpture.
The salon’s white walls stretch to meet cavernous ceilings, where modern track lighting illuminates the sharp angles of eggshell-colored stylist chairs surrounded by black-and-white décor. Near the entrance, hardwood floors support ample display racks, where Aveda products happily sun themselves in the light of expansive windows.
