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.
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.
During your hour-long massage, one of Zen's friendly licensed therapists will knead your back into a state of doughy bliss via 3,600 seconds of soothing connective strokes. The Swedish massage is one of the most popular modalities of muscle manipulation due to its relatively gentle nature, deeply relaxing effects, and ability to rock a leather jacket during all five seasons. Each massage at Zen is customized to patient preferences, so therapists can use light, medium, or firm pressure, but regardless of intensity, the gliding movements will stimulate your circulation and melt away your physical and emotional tension with the ease by which the sun melts ice cream. After Zen Massage's pampering, every last bit of body's stress will be evicted from its tissues and forced to take up residence in stray dogs' eyelashes.
The full-service Artisans Salon dutifully sweeps away aesthetic doldrums with a slew of beautifying services. A signature mani-pedi combo pairs a half-hour hand wrangling with a 45-minute foot sprucing, giving patrons plenty of time to relax with an offered glass of wine or cup of tea. The European-style manicure begins with an exfoliation of arid skin to make way for a metacarpal-melting massage using aromatherapeutic oils. The mitt treatment concludes after a paraffin-wax-glove treatment seals in elasticity, softness, and color and seals out actual seals. Worn-out little piggies find solace in a warm sea-salt-enriched soak that launches the pedicure procedure. Softened hoof hulls then receive a verbena scrub and mask. A fragrant hot towel curtails high-strung nerves, and a knee-to-toes rubdown releases tension from legs to make room for better cargo, such as a year’s worth of Cadbury Creme Eggs. Toe-tops are then given the Rolls-Royce treatment and polished to a perfectly designed shine with nail varnish.
