Elements Salon and Day Spa turns frizzies into flowing locks and achy bodies into rejuvenated organ carriers with a multitudinous mélange of spa and salon services. Pamper cranium covers with eco-friendly Aveda products during a cut and style ($5+ for children, $16+ for men, and $26+ for women) or banish unwanted hair by waxing lip lines ($15), underarms ($30), or eyebrows ($12). Guests can also opt for a beautifying manicure ($17) or pedicure ($36) to prepare phalanges for spring showcasing or try a soothing knead from a certified massage therapist ($30–$100) to reward hardworking backs after a week of textbook-toting or summer sandal shot-putting.
The bronzing pros at Tanning Bed help clients achieve a coppery glow by regularly outfitting each bed with new lamps and replenishing spray-tan booths with skin-darkening formulas. To keep tanners cool as they drink up Vitamin D, all 31 boutiques equip private rooms with maximum ventilation and one ton of air conditioning for every tanning bed, or the amount required to chill enough soda for a herd of thirsty polar bears. Guests can customize how frequently they tan by selecting from multiple membership or package options. Bronzers with a two-visit package ($9.99) must redeem both sessions within 30 days, whereas those with a 10-visit ($39.99) or 20-visit bundle ($69.99) can pepper the calendar with visits throughout one year. Memberships for 7 ($9.99), 30 ($39.99), or 90 ($89.99) consecutive days of tanning allow tanners to sustain a sun-kissed appeal and ultimately imprint body grooves into their bed of choice.
When Michele Taber, a licensed cosmetologist of two decades, decided to open Meeshe’ Salon and Spa in her native county, the beautifier selected a waterfront Cayuga Lake location that exuded tranquility. Her salon and spa treatments transfer the natural serenity indoors with mani-pedis augmented by seaweed wraps and full-body scrubs that exfoliate with sea salt instead of the traditional tool, corrugated cardboard. A fleet of freshly updated tanning beds warm bodies to a beachy glow, and shears or wax rid bodies of excess hair.
Piloted by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Potenza, Aesthetic Plastic Surgery provides a variety of beauty-enhancing services in a medically sound environment. Licensed medical aesthetician Shannon Martin zaps the wayward blood vessels known as spider veins with her Venus-imported Cutera laser, using light-generated heat to kill off offending veins by coagulating the blood within them. Deceased vessels are subsequently reabsorbed into the body, fading away like Mozart’s one-hit-wonder career over a period of four to six weeks. The cosmetic treatment is safe on all skin types, returning epidermises to their porcelain-scented factory settings.
Drawing on more than 3,800 procedures, Dr. Dean DeRoberts administers facial and bodily refinements with a keen eye and steady hand. His feature-enhancing procedures includes forehead lifts, nose surgery, tummy tucks, and liposuction treatments as well as less invasive treatments such as facials, Botox injections, and laser hair removal.
Blissful Beauty Bar owner Amber Leigh Cole has worked her glamorizing magic on faces and bodies across the country, bringing the success of her original Salt Lake City eye bar––Blissfuleigh Iced––to sister locations in New York. Amber is a certified eyelash-extension specialist and a master aesthetician; her employees all boast similar certifications, and undergo an intensive three-month training before getting the go ahead to enhance exteriors with microdermabrasion, slimming body wraps, and airbrush tanning. House-specialty eyelash extensions are applied individually to the natural lashes, making lash lines look fuller and flirtier without dressing them up in mascara or low-cut cocktail dresses. The team can also dip lashes in a hard coating that adds drama and thickness for four–six weeks, applying it to natural lashes or as an extra enhancer to bottom extensions.
