What You'll Get
Before the advent of spas, natty Neanderthals had to buff their nails on the scaly hides of stegosaurus coworkers and de-fuzz their faces using the sharpened edges of Diet Rite cans. Take advantage of modern beauty measures with today's Groupon: for $21, you get a manicure, pedicure, conditioning treatment, and brow waxing (a $49 total value) at The Salon Professional Academy on West Clay Street in St. Charles. A regular participant in St. Louis Fashion Week and the only beauty school in the St. Louis metro area endorsed by Redken for excellence in education, The Salon Professional Academy provides clients with a wide array of aesthetic enhancements. Your salon and spa treatments will begin with a cuticle-fighting manicure and a callus-eliminating pedicure, after which The Salon Professional Academy's hair wizards will apply a conditioning treatment to maximize your mane's capacity to awe slack-jawed strangers. The package concludes with an eyebrow wax to eradicate pesky peach fuzz and unruly crabgrass.
Examiner featured The Salon Professional Academy and named it a "budget-proof beauty salon":
- Walking in you will be surprised at the high-end salon feel, friendly faces and all-around professional atmosphere. – Andrea Valeria, Examiner
