Tricia Perry and her supporting staff of aestheticians coax hair from bodies and return youth to faces in a serene day-spa environment. Techs hash out details and put leery minds at ease during complimentary consultations before spraying rays of laser light across epidermises during electrolysis to permanently eradicate hair. For a quicker fix, guests can take in old-fashioned body waxing, complete with Cirepil signature body wax from France.
To soothe skin after de-hirsuting, clients can opt for detoxifying body wraps with either sea-salt or sugar scrubs, which exfoliate dead skin while moisturizing, for treatments as effective but more comfortable than running through a fire hose in a sandpaper bathing suit. Ayromist's aestheticians also fluff lagging lashes with semipermanent extensions.
“Noël, Noël, Noël, Noëëëëëlll, born is the Queen of the illest hair!” If Alicia Keys sang it, you better believe it. Plenty of salon websites list quotes from customers raving about their great experiences with celebrity stylist Noël. But at Noël New York, these raving customers are the likes of Grammy Award–winning singers Keys, Melanie Fiona, and Chrisette Michele, as well as models and senior beauty editors from Essence. They come for the blow-outs, the custom protein treatments, and Noël’s famous clip-ins, which are made entirely of human hair and can be quickly attached and removed. Noël’s styling skills can be seen in publications such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Glamour, to name a few.
At Beauty SQ, hairstylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians administer a wide variety of treatments aided by OPI and BSQ gel polishes, naturally derived Aveda products, and deluxe Bumble and Bumble haircare serums. Therapists ease muscles with Western- and Eastern-style massages, such as deep tissue, acupuncture, herbal reflexology, and Chinese tui na, a technique similar to Swedish massage that aims to positively redirect chi, or energy, throughout the body. Aestheticians create tailored weight-loss packages by combining targeted massage with other treatments, such as body wraps or facials administered prejog.
Under the supervision of Edward Gindi, MD, trained technicians at Laser Light MD help clients feel more confident in their own skin. Using a Soprano XL laser designed with a pain-free, hair-free philosophy, the techs target stubborn strands with laser hair-removal treatments. They also aim IPL beams at acne and uneven pigmentation during treatments that can reduce sun damage, scars, and age spots. For optimal comfort during any procedure, clients can request a male or female tech or a laser that sings lullabies.
At The Wax Room, an experienced aesthetician launches offensive strikes against stubble using quality hard and soft wax. By focusing solely on waxing treatments, she has cultivated expertise in Brazilian waxes and eyebrow shaping. All treatments are performed within a single room as private as a desert island surrounded by killer watchdolphins. The beautifier pampers skin with after-care products from Serious Serum to diminish inflammation and angry bumps. Results last up to eight weeks, at which point hair resurfaces softer and finer in texture.
Pure cotton thread and herbal facials are two of the techniques the aestheticians at Threading on 5th Ave. use to beautify their clients. They sweep away facial imperfections with these natural means in order to spare skin the irritation of chemical-laden methods and markered-on mustaches. Concerned with more than just the face, the team also clears away body hair and cleans up bikini zones during waxes.
