Though inner beauty is important, the fact remains that outer beauty is still often used to determine SAT scores and income-tax rates. Get a leg up on life with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a mini manicure, pedicure, facial, and makeup applcation at Tutu Girls Boutik & Kids Spa in Amherst (a $49.90 value).
Tutu Girls Boutik and Kids Spa pampers pint-sized Homo sapiens with age-appropriate versions of traditional spa services. Wee ones begin their day of indulgence by slipping on cuddly fuchsia robes and settling into plush zebra-print pedicure chairs. The mini combo package starts off with a soothing mani-pedi, which soaks tootsies in a bubble-gum-pink bucket and imbues all 20 digits with one eye-popping hue. Frontispieces are then cleansed during a mini facial, leaving them supple, moisturized, and devoid of Jello residue before being sparkle-fied with a glitter makeup application.
The Tutu Boutik
After years sewing funky, girly clothing for her young daughter, Lisa Jamieson began to sell her creations online, founding the business that would become The Tutu Boutik. Colorful leg warmers, flowered headbands, and the boutique's namesake tutus line shelves and fill racks throughout the boutique's pink and zebra-striped space inside the Boulevard Mall. A licensed cosmetologist, Jamieson also makes over petite patrons' hair, faces, and nails alongside staff in the spa, forgoing techniques such as cuticle trimming that might be unsafe for tiny digits. A make-your-own-lip-gloss station grants visitors the chance to craft their own sparkly solutions, and a pink catwalk mural encourages two-dimensional guests to work the runway.
