Named one of New York City’s 10 Best Nail Salons in 2010, Trevi Nails employs a crew of talented technicians who pamper hands and feet before polishing nails with Essie and OPI polishes. Behind 17 nail stations, which span two floors, staffers soften skin with paraffin dips, scrubs, and other personalized treatments, and aestheticians whisk away unwanted hair with face- and body-waxing services and artfully frame peepers with eyelash extensions. Customized massages with soothing lemon-infused products from Lemon Tree relax neck muscles sore from training mink to sit still on your shoulders.
Whirlpool foot baths, glasses of champagne, and hot river stones well up around clients at Village Nails & Spa, blocking out the stressors of the external world. Paraffin wax relaxes the hands' tendons before manicurists buff away dead skin and primp nails with a galaxy of multi-colored OPI polishes, and Swedish massages release stiffness over the rest of the body with deft, gliding strokes. The staff extricates unwanted hair with PFB Vanish waxes, which quiets the discomfort associated with waxing with a combination of hydrating ingredients and a light anesthetic.
At Yuva Threading Salon's three NYC locations, the staffs of skilled aestheticians blend Western techniques with centuries-old Eastern traditions. Due to this versatility, the salon has grown to offer more than eyebrow threading, though the technique still remains their hallmark service and garners praise from outlets such as The Early Show on CBS. Their clients can also take advantage of waxing, facials, massages, nail services, and receive intricate henna tattoos.

In the bustling heart of Midtown, Elite Day Spa serves as an oasis of calm. Here, a team of expert aestheticians specialize in natural skin treatments as well as med-spa services. Customized European deep-pore cleansing facials and microdermabrasion rejuvenate tired faces, while French mani-pedis refresh rough nails. To pamper the body as a whole, spa therapists turn to a range of massage techniques and body treatments such as seaweed-peppermint wraps, brown-sugar scrubs, and fruit body polishes. Elite Day Spa doesn't just rely on its services to calm visitors though: the interior features flowing champagne drapes and walls hung with photos depicting calming images such as a statue of the Buddha and a pair of puppies attending massage school.
