After spending years in skincare and aesthetics, Leila Espari decided to take her experience and certifications and open her own business. She stacked her staff roster with such professionals as a board-certified plastic surgeon, a waxing specialist, a laser technician, aestheticians, and licensed massage therapists. The cozy day spa offers services such as massage therapy, lash extensions, and hair removal via laser, electrolysis, waxing, or threading. Other skin-smoothing treatments include facials and micro-polish peels that gently exfoliate the skin to remove dead skin cells and flakes caused by dry skin or aggressive cereal eating. A special tissue massager reduces the appearance of cellulite and dimples.
Armed with more than a decade's worth of styling experience, Mancini de Paris guides his team of stylists and technicians as they pamper patrons from head to toe. Staffers administer services ranging from haircuts to pedicures with brand-name products from companies including Dermalogica, Redken, and Goldwell. The salon area houses blue chairs for patrons to relax in as stylists wash, snip, color, perm, and talk to hair, and the dedicated spa area features plush pedicure chairs and private treatment rooms with linen-draped massage tables.
It takes a lot of self-restraint to opt for a basic pedicure at Modern Nail Studio. The more luxurious pedicures' names, like "Moroccan Mud" and "Elements of the Sea," evoke tropical climates and beach vacations?and with good reason. During the former treatment, nail technicians pamper feet with a desert mud mask and sandalwood scents, while the latter delivers sand exfoliation and a marine mask. Clients can pair the pedicures with manicures that might include citrus salts or gel polish, a durable alternative to regular polish or washable marker.
