Instead of hiding in your old Richard Nixon mask this Halloween, dazzle your fellow party-goers with skin so radiant that your costume could be Dr. Phosphorus. Today's Groupon is a treat that does the trick: you'll get a luxurious spa facial at Beehive Hair Salon for $35 (a $70 value).
The wood-paneled receptionist desk and red leather loungers recall a more innocent time, when walls were painted a pale turquoise to enhance the natural beauty of all and children played, carefree, in plastic bags full of mercury. Amid the fun, retro décor, you can drain away the stresses of cell phones and emails for a full hour of honest pampering. Your aesthetician will give you a skin history questionnaire (you can finally come clean about those parrot-bite scars) and assess your skin-covered face to determine the best way to clean you up and keep you smooth.
The friendly aestheticians at Beehive use Bioelements products to customize your facial treatment. Your face will get thoroughly cleansed and steamed, and any unwanted yuckies will be gently extracted. You'll get a decadent arm massage, deep-treating masks, and a moisturizing treatment that will leave your skin soft and radiant, as smooth as the part of a baby's head you're not supposed to poke.
Even if you follow a rigorous skin-care routine, you likely lack the tools necessary to really probe into your pores and de-clog them from all the make-up, dirt, particle men, and gunk trapped inside. Facial rejuvenation does great things and can help reduce wrinkles, firm up skin, and get rid of bothersome blackheads. Experts advise getting one every four to six weeks due to skin regeneration, or at least seasonally.
- The best part about this salon, though, is the atmosphere. Everyone is extremely friendly and not pretentious whatsoever. You never feel pressured to buy products, and you always leave feeling satisfied. – katygrl1, Citysearch
- The service was prompt, the staff was curteous [sic], and the place was so clean. – amymay3, Citysearch
- You'll also find cool tunes, a talented and friendly staff, and the two cutest canines ever. – dandeliongirl, Citysearch
