Salon de Jeunesse provides a bevy of beautifying services to smooth the skin's surface. A 45–60 minute microdermabrasion-, glycolic-, and collagen-combination treatment triple teams ornery skin and buffs away fine lines, wrinkles, and discolorations, creating optimal playing conditions for microscopic games of curling. The trifecta of skinsavers encourages faces to churn out more of their natural hyaluronic acids and collagens, making them so incandescent they can be used to search for missing mustards in lightless refrigerators.
The nail techs at Emerald Day Spa use organic products as they beautify hands and feet with mani-pedis. During the 60-minute service, an aesthetician gently massages and scrubs pavement pounders with a nutrient-rich Himalayan salt scrub, exfoliating soles and heels as fingers soak in a dip and share secrets about who they like-like. Nails then undergo a trim, buff, and cuticle treatment before being slathered in a green tea detox to expunge impurities.
In partnership with Aveda, 1st Avenue Salon rolls out a fleet of services in the form of haircuts, color, bridal up-dos, and straightening treatments. An experienced team of mane masters consults each client before rearranging coiffures to match moods or backyard topiaries, and each team member soaks up weekly education seminars on the latest coloring techniques. A hotspot for handpicked products from renowned beauty brands such as Dermalogica and Moroccanoil, the beauty emporium also soothes epidermises with facials and body treatments that combine massage movements and detoxifying techniques to instill clients with a glow previously only achieved by standing in front of an open refrigerator.
Erin Rivera has been cutting and coloring hair for the past 11 years. She and her fellow stylists work under the watchful gaze of managing director Sonia inside Del Sol Salon & Spa, where they mold manes with products by Enjoy and Brocato. In the center of the salon, a coffee bar supplies waiting guests with caffeine and distressed treasure maps. In addition to pampering guests, the salon also helped raise money for the St. Baldrick's Foundation, an organization that aids children with cancer.
Hair Connection believes that great hair isn't something that should be reserved for special occasions. That's why the stylists at this Aveda salon strive to create cuts that mirror the latest runway trends, but are still simple enough for clients to re-create at home. Each service includes a consultation, which allows the stylist to get an idea of your tastes, hair traits, and how often you use your hat to store gum you aren’t finished with. Using this info, they then create a look that can easily transition from day to night, and may prescribe a strengthening Aveda conditioner to nourish tresses with extra protein or moisture. For those battling a hair texture that's less than ideal, they can also use relaxers, Keratin Complex treatments, or the Brazilian Blowout formula to calm frizz and streamline morning styling routines. Naturally straight strands can take a break from the curling iron with permanent waves or spiral treatments.
The therapists at Beauty Culture have imported spa treatments and technologies from Europe, which they use to pamper their clients from head to toe. Skin and body treatments leave bodies scrubbed and nourished, while non-invasive slimming treatments send fat on a one-way trip to Narnia. Tea, snacks, and soothing music add to the full-sensory comfort of each visit to this relaxing spa.
