In the Old West, cowboys rode into town to have a glass of whiskey at the town saloon, heckle the thieves in the stockades, and exfoliate their rugged mugs with the sheriff's spurs. Saddle up for modern shaping up with today's Groupon: for $21, you get a spa pedicure ($18), spa manicure ($13), and a haircut, shampoo, and style ($12) at Xenon International Academy's Olathe location (a $43 total value).
Xenon International Academy's accredited beauty-school curriculum teaches aesthetician aspirants to administer mani-pedis and haircuts under the watchful eye of licensed and experienced instructors. Trained sculptors of scalp whiskers use high-quality products from Peel's Salon Services as they trim, wash, and style manes in 30–45 minutes, the same time it takes to finish a game of full-contact hopscotch. On the spa side, skilled keratin crafters tend to handparts with expert care during luxurious spa manicures, then spruce back-up fingers with soothing spa pedicures.
Now celebrating its 25-year anniversary, the academy's 8,000-square-foot facility allows ample space for three fully equipped spa rooms, 46 client-service stations, and four spa-pedicure units, with enough room left over to park your company hovercraft. Walk-ins and appointments are welcome.
