Celeste Day Spa strives to do more than revitalize its clients' appearances. The staff tries to turn every appointment into a rejuvenating escape from the stress and pressure of everyday life. Gentle music plays in the background, the scent of aromatherapy oils lingers in the air, and candles gently flicker atop the birthday cakes in each room. Within this serene setting, the massage therapists soothe aching muscles, the aestheticians apply body wraps rich with essential minerals and botanical extracts, and the stylists design flattering new hairdos. Even a traditional pedicure can become a luxuriant experience when the nail technicians incorporate paraffin dips or centering reflexology techniques. Going beyond traditional spa services, Celeste Day Spa also strives to help its clients by offering treatments intended to promote holistic health and wellbeing, such as hypnotherapy, chakra-balancing energy work, and life coaching.
Maintaining a commitment to cleanliness, the nail technicians at Nail-Know-How also train continuously in the latest techniques, including foot care for diabetic clients. Their efforts shine through during spa services for men and women in a cozy, relaxing, and clean environment. Nail technicians sculpt fingers and toenails during standard mani-pedis, as well as during more luxurious treatments, such as a peppermint pedicure infused with the same aromatic scents Santa Claus uses in his high-end line of colognes. While nails remain their specialty, the experts also wax off unwanted hair and perform lash- and brow-tinting services.
Growing up in the household of an "old-time" family practitioner, Dr. Ira M. Fine understands the importance of cultivating close relationships with his patients. He spends time with each patient to discuss the procedure in detail, listening to concerns and giving out high fives with practiced firmness. Dr. Fine himself has undergone many of the clinic's anti-aging procedures in order to experience the patient's perspective and test out his collection of disguises. Practicing medicine for more than 20 years, the board-certified physician has built up an expertise in dermal fillers, cosmetic radiofrequency treatments, and hormone therapy.
At the helm of Yossi Salon and Spa is owner and master stylist Yoni Azari, a short-hair specialist bearing certifications from Wella, Toni&Guy, Rusk, and Alfaparf. Together with a staff of stylists, colorists, massage therapists, and nail artists, he strives to make the world a more beautiful place, sculpting lovelier locks with help from products by Aquage, Sebastian, and Redken, and curating clearer complexions with facials and microdermabrasion. When they’re not busy staying abreast of industry trends by attending educational seminars and reading Paul Mitchell’s diary, the crew at Yossi spends time giving back to the community by participating in charitable events such as St. Baldricks, Toys for Tots, and Forgotten Soldier’s Outreach.
Stylists at Dolce Vita Salon and Spa shape their clients’ manes with precision cuts and smoothing keratin treatments. While clients sip a complimentary glass of wine, stylists paint locks with single-process color, add subtle face-framing highlights, or dot lids with eyelash extensions. In addition to hairstyling, the salon also features spray tanning, facials, and nail services. Meanwhile, rich chocolate chairs and cabinets and a large black-and-white photo of Marilyn Monroe, lend an air of '50s retro glamour to the salon’s atmosphere.
