I think we can all agree it's pretty hectic out there right now.
Whether you celebrate the holidays or not, there's a sense of urgency (and a little joy). And don't even get us started on the traffic.
It's enough to make the most sane of us go a little crazy.
That's what makes self care gifts so valuable. So treat yourself or gift your BFF, your mom or your partner with a little pampering this season at one of these local spots.
If the smells of nail salons aren't your thing, check out Green Toes. The shop is known for only using vegan and organic polishes as well as acetone free polish removers. So, no harsh smells and no harsh chemicals.
You can also get massages and facials there.
Green Toes currently has holiday packages. We like the "Tis the Season Spa Package Nails Duo", which is an Essential Manicure and Essential Pedicure for $75. We also like the "Tis the Season Spa Package Body and Face Duo" which is a 60-minute signature facial and 60-minute Swedish massage for $135.
Or, if you're gifting, you can get a $50 gift card for only $40.
About Me Hair Studio
You'll feel fancy when you walk out with new hair or eyelashes or photo finish makeup.
Prices vary depending on services. Hair cuts start at $38. Photo finish makeup starts at $60 and full set of lashes costs $200. There are also color services, waxing and special occasion hair styling.
You can go for the whole spa day experience at Gadabout Salon Spas.
We especially like the idea of an exfoliating massage. This 50-minute treatment is a full body massage using a hydrating exfoliant followed by a warm rinse and costs $90.
Or, if you don't have much time, get a "Refresh" facial. It's only 25 minutes and cleanses, exfoliates and balances your skin for $42.
Gadabout has several locations around Tucson and offers many services including hair cuts and colors, manicures and pedicures, waxing and lashes. There are also gift cards available for purchase or you can buy products like night rubs, refinishing masks and detox soaks to create your own spa day at home.
