John of Italy
Within the spacious confines of John of Italy Salon & Spa, yellow sconces cast their glow upon thickly padded couches and loveseats, the scarlet walls of private treatment rooms, and artwork both framed on the wall and painted onto it. Nail technician Gina Longo sets up shop here, drawing on 20 years of experience to groom and pamper hands and feet—the way a teacher with 20 years of experience might groom children to write with their hands and feet. In addition to standard services such as trimming cuticles, she hydrates skin with moisturizing masques and performs reflexology massages with essential oils. Before or after treatments, visitors can peruse a boutique stocked with nail polish, skincare products, and even spa-quality slippers and robes.
