Facials help rejuvenate aging faces, turning back the clock to help moms sneak into Teen Jeopardy! tryouts. Reap the benefits of a younger-looking visage with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a Pure Focus Facial at Wen Chic Salon and Spa (a $55 value) in Katy.
Wen Chic is a full-service salon and spa that seeks to soothe stressed customers with feng shui décor, while the expert staff pampers and beautifies unruly hair, skin, and nails. The 30-minute Pure Focus Facial begins with an Aveda Sensory Journey, during which aromatic oils trigger calming memories of wrestling cuddly crocodiles. Afterward, steadfast suds and exfoliants cleanse and tame skin's texture before customers receive an antistress facial massage. Aestheticians envelope faces in customized skin-perfecting masks and massage emollients into harried hands, while eyes enjoy Wen Chic's stylish décor with perfectly placed plants and angled armchairs that will whisk customers away to Relaxationland.

Wen Chic Salon and Spa
Wherever Wenny Blackman goes, Aveda's organic products are sure to follow, and vice versa, as the stylist, aesthetician, and owner of Wen Chic Salon and Spa—an Aveda Concept Salon and Spa—has been attending Aveda classes since 1996. Needless to say, she and her skilled staff employ Aveda products exclusively to augment their repertoire of salon and spa services, including colorings that use HeadMapping, instead of traditional wizards, to predict the amount of time, product, and cost for each session.
Before the Texas board-certified stylists can cut, color, or treat hair, Blackman requires them to attend classes at the Aveda Institute. The stylists' mastery of Aveda's curriculum, coupled with their overall experience, determines their status as a stylist, senior stylist, master stylist, or director. Similarly, the licensed aestheticians and registered massage therapists reach for Aveda products during facials, massages, waxing treatments, and semi-permanent makeup, which are staged in the spa area's quiet summer and winter rooms, free of cell-phone ringtones and piles of burning leaves.
