An’tyrice Salon and Spa may not be situated in New York City, but its multicultural hair services save many clients the trip into the Big Apple. Nimble-handed stylists weave virgin-hair extensions into hairlines, brush on dimensional highlights, and clip modern cuts. The salon also welcomes clients in search of airbrush makeup applications, spray tans, facials, and massages.
Owner Jacqueline and her staff of estheticians slather organic products onto clients’ faces during facials to help alleviate rosacea, sop up excess oil, or hydrate dry patches. They also scrub away dead skin cells on bodies with raw sugar or extra-fine sandpaper, and bestow eyelashes with extra length using semi-permanent lash extensions.
Licensed massage therapist and skincare expert Irina Ionina had always dreamed of running her own spa where she can heal others while fostering relaxation and well-being. Having opened Ganesha Spa, she’s achieved that goal, and now spends her days practicing eight modalities of massage, such as shiatsu and hot stone, to relieve muscle tension and alleviate stress. She also rejuvenates skin with anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, micro-needling, and nonsurgical face-lifts, and hosts kundalini mediation classes each Monday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Erica Breining founded Bellava MedAesthetics & Spa as a place where people could find medical-grade solutions to common skincare problems. Staffed by a team of physicians and aestheticians, her center offers everything from surgical procedures to customized facial treatments, helping combat the creases and blemishes that accompany aging skin. Although turning back time isn't an option, improving the skin's tone and texture can boost clients' confidence while restoring their naturally youthful radiance.
