From infancy, skin is tasked with protecting the body against summer’s heat, winter’s cold, and Grandmother’s pinch. Help your outer layer smoothly handle all of its responsibilities with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of waxing services from The Establishment on Rowena Avenue.
The Establishment, an Aveda concept salon, doles out soothing waxing services through a staff of experienced aestheticians that includes a dedicated waxing specialist. Shape eyebrows ($20) to prettily frame peepers, or make an upper lip ($15) as smooth as it is stiff. Hairless half ($30) or full arms ($45) swiftly part summer waters, or a half leg ($45) can audition for the Rockettes. Ready the bikini area ($35+) for swimsuit season or rid the back or chest ($50+) of intruding follicles, creating a clean surface for impromptu games of tic-tac-toe. Exposed ductwork and light wood accents at eye-catching angles stretch across The Establishment's hip interior, drawing attention to vibrant and metallic murals that swim with abstract organic forms.
Equipped with botanically derived Aveda products, The Establishment's dedicated staff gets to work helping clients refine their appearance or invent a brand new look. The salon keeps a crack team on the roster, made up of stylists, makeup artists, Aveda color specialists, and an aesthetician. In addition to trimming stray strands, the hair stylists can design a distinctive look with texturizing treatments as well as the Aveda full-spectrum hair color system. Looking beyond the scalp, the salon's aesthetician performs skin-revitalizing body treatments as well as waxing sessions that can minimize discomfort by incorporating numbing sprays or hypnosis.
