In the Old West, cowboys rode into town to have a glass of whiskey at the town saloon, heckle the thieves in the stockades, and exfoliate their rugged mugs with the sheriff's spurs. Saddle up for modern shaping up with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $65 worth of waxing, facials, and other skin services at Studio Luxe Hair and Skin Spa in the Pearl District. Hair treatments and nail services are not included.
The talented ladies of the Studio Luxe Hair and Skin Spa team gather in a chic brick-walled urban loft space each day to offer a bevy of skin services that promote and enhance dermal beauty. Let the eyebrow specialist reshape or separate Siamese brows ($35 for the first time), or have an expert hairscaper clear your upper lip ($10) and chin ($12) to create a smooth surface for better novelty-moustache adhesion. Or just skip the specifics and get a full face of water-wicking skin ($25). Migrate away from the mug and take care of gnarly arms ($30) or a hirsute pair of leggy walking arms ($60 and up). Prepare for beach season with a Brazilian ($65) or with its front-sided cousin, the French bikini ($45).
Indulging in spa services is good for the skin and the youthful spirit, which flickers like a flame waiting to be stoked in the hearts of most humans and some automatons. After all, just because time is a linear illusion doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take some for yourself. Clients may also opt for a rejuvenating facial treatment such as a sircuit cosmeceutical peel ($60 and up), which sheds layers of dated skin, leaving only a fresh, fashionable surface behind. For the personal touch, try the physiodermie customized facial ($85 and up), which is adjusted to the needs, hopes, and dreams of your individual frontispiece. Brow and lash tinting services are also available ($25 brows, $30 lash, $50 for both). Call ahead to make an appointment.
