There’s a reason every little girl wants to be a mermaid: flowing, wavy hair lightened by the sun, tan body, smooth and sparkling skin. In fact (other than the whole no-legs thing), most women I know wish they could be as beautiful as a mermaid as well!
Enter Grand Spa, a high-end salon and spa inside Village on the Parkway. Their expert service, innovative techniques and creative beauty tips will have you looking like Ariel in no time. Come in for a manicure, pedicure, facial, body scrub, hair style, skin treatment or more – leave feeling glamorous and ready for any adventure this summer will bring.
“Taking care of your skin and body is always a summer must,” said Luane McWhorter, owner of Grand Spa. “We have luxurious scrubs for body and HydraFacial and Oxygen Facials available for your face – both of which we will have specials on all summer long.”
For newbies, the HydraFacial is a four-step treatment that includes a Gly-Sal peel for your face, and the Oxygen Facial uses an intraceuticals oxygen treatment to provide intense hydration to your skin. The basic HydraFacial package is $155 and the regular Oxygen facial is $200, but look for discounts throughout the summer.
You can also come in for hair and nail services. McWhorter recommends lots of braids (perfect for long days in the water!). She also mentioned that highlights to lighten up the hair is very popular this time of year, as everyone wants to get that gorgeous sun-kissed glow look. Of course, you can also get your hair styled and blown out at Grand Spa if you are spending the evening on land, or get it cut into a trendy shoulder-length style that is easy to maintain for women who live very active lifestyles. While you’re there, don’t forget to get your nails done! As far as nail trends, McWhorter is seeing very pale pinks and white nails, done with polish, gel or dips. These simple nails will look good against your tan skin – and they will match any summer outfit!
For the month of July, take advantage of special promotions for your nails, including the coconut cabana spa manicure ($38) and pedicure ($58). This month, you can also get an 80-minute Refreshing Facial for $198 and an 80-minute Complete Facial for $198.

Other featured services this month include the 80-minute Summer Glow Body Wrap ($170), which will give your skin a sexy, silky texture while firming and tightening the skin – basically, the next best thing to fins and mermaid-strong biceps. The treatment includes a glycolic scrub, followed by a remineralizing gel wrap and finished with a glycolic lotion. Or, simply relax with an 80-minute Ocean Dream Massage ($165), which includes a sugar scrub rub on your back or feet. A full list of specials can be found online.
