What You'll Get
The perfect frame can make your favorite Fight Club poster a piece of sophisticated art, and the perfect eyebrow arch can enhance your gorgeous mug. With today's Groupon to Usha Salon and Day Spa's Federal Hill location, $7 gets you your choice of an eyebrow threading, (featured in Baltimore magazine's Best of Baltimore), a $12 value, or a classic manicure, a $16 value. Prepare for countless rounds of holiday photos and hand pats from dear old ladies; today's deal lets you get up to two Groupons to try out both services or use both on one service to make it through the new year in flawless style. Threading is an ancient Indian technique for shaping eyebrows that is natural, safe, and effective. Instead of slathering on harsh hair-removal creams loaded with chemicals or hot wax that can burn and abrade your sensitive face skin, let the friendly eyebrow artists at Usha give you perfectly arched brows that will frame, define, and brighten your whole face. The results last longer than waxing, and you won't experience bumps or irritation associated with the wax coming to life and establishing rudimentary agrarian societies on your forehead. You're also less likely to experience local swelling or redness, and your eyebrow artist's superior thread control can get at the tiny, fine hairs that wax won't pick up.
If you choose to get a manicure instead, sit back and relax while your friendly nail technician wraps your hands in an indulgent blanket of massage. Your manicure will clean and invigorate the thin skin of your hand with gentle exfoliation to remove dead skin cells (which will be individually mailed to your admirers) and keep your hands looking youthful. Neatly manicured hands make you appear more professional at work, and pretty polish can add a festive pop of color to your little black dress this holiday season. Call ahead to book your appointment at Usha's Federal Hill location.

If you've been neglecting your eyebrows because you thought your shopaholic friends were bragging "I browse," don't beat yourself up. You are the innocent victim of a heterograph, a word that sounds the same as another distinctively spelled and defined word. Here are a few heterograph-laden example phrases to help you battle confusion:
Allowed, Aloud: I don’t think Marshall should be allowed to speak aloud at the wedding, due to his controversial opinions on the Sega Dreamcast.
Brews, Bruise: How many brews did you and Marshall knock back before you inevitably brought up the Nintendo GameCube’s superiority to the Sega Dreamcast and he gave you that bruise?
Cents, Sense, Scents: Common sense suggests that you not open that package from Marshall; it might be a PlayStation 2 box, but the scents emanating from it suggest a different surprise. That’s just my two cents. Also, stop hanging out with Marshall.
