Height ain’t nothing but a number, so most modern rollycoasters only admit those with the most pristine hair and nails ripe for high-thrills fluffing. Prepare for riveting ups and downs with today’s Groupon to Vanity Salon and Spa. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get a spa manicure and pedicure (a $75 value).
- For $30, you get a haircut with shampoo and blow-dry style (an $80 value).
Helmed by owner Angel Petro, Vanity Salon and Spa’s skilled staffers pamper pretty-seeking patrons with a full spread of services. Tense fists unfurl during a relaxing soak and cleansing before cuticles entertain a pruning, and forearms release stress and upper-arm back-talking with a massage. A revitalizing footbath envelops hardworking feet alongside cuticle maintenance and callus eviction. Bask in a nimble kneading of the feet and lower legs, then select a polish hue to complement open-toe shoes or wily mood rings. The digit service, which lasts 60–75 minutes, unwinds clients in descending or ascending order, and an optional paraffin hand upgrade ($12) calms people paws with smooth wax known for its rejuvenating qualities and fire-proofing capabilities.
The haircut option, a 45-minute procedure, pits unwieldy tendrils against an expert silhouette shaper, who brandishes the mighty scissor to pen an artisan coiffure that distinctly complements the unique personality or celebrity doppelganger of each donner. A preliminary shampoo evicts pent up residue from lesser shampoos to set the stage for a transformation as grand or subtle as modern trends allow. Freshly negotiated head borders congeal during a blow-dry style that temporarily tattoos hair-geometry into the textbooks of time.
Vanity Salon and Spa
After earning the status of master stylist and certified colorist over the course of 20 years in the industry, Angel Petro opened her own salon in 2010, stocking its shelves with Redken hair products and toxin free Zoya nail polish. The salon's small but elite team of stylists includes a master barber who specializes in men's precision and tapered cuts and another master stylist who sculpts avant-garde hairdos and neighborhood shrubs. The team of beauty professionals takes part in continuing education, which allows them to perform a range of up-to-the-minute hair-color and cutting techniques for both men and women.
Color services impart natural-looking hues with products by Redken, a brand founded in 1898 by a Berlin chemist in a neighborhood drugstore. Every hair service includes a complimentary consultation for stylists to scope out each client's personal style and hair type, and waxing services lull clients with lavender-scented candles.
In addition to the lively salon, Vanity Salon and Spa has also created serene spa rooms for relaxation. Spa services include manicures and pedicures performed with organic, non-toxic polishes and scrubs. The licensed massage therapist, Jamie, has been working in Nashville for four years and is committed to helping clients maintain a healthy, relaxed, and pain-free body. Trained in several modalities with a focus on relaxation, she often combines elements, like acupressure for targeting tense areas and Shiatsu for relaxation, to tailor a massage that meets each client's needs.
