Sheer curtains add a layer of mystery and privacy between the stations of Grace CC Beauty Spa, allowing clients to focus on the pampering masks, aromatic sea salts, and massaging kneads that accompany the salon’s signature manicures and pedicures. The flush nail treatment menu incorporates everything from quick nail fix-ups to artificial nails and gel polish. During each treatment, nail techs use hospital-grade sterilized utensils to ensure that nails are healthier than an immortal god with a wheatgrass press. Every grooming experience comes with a complimentary nail strengthener and quick-dry top coat, helping color stay put after polishing. When not scrubbing heels and massaging legs, the staff members flex their aesthetic muscles with a variety of spa treatments that smooth skin, add a dramatic touch to lashes and brows, or wax away unwanted hair and hard-to-reach socks.
Co-owners Marina and Polina put inner peace above all else when they left the high-stress world of finance to open Enigma Beauty Salon, fulfilling their calling to help people feel beautiful and relaxed. Before hair, nail, or massage services give clients their desired makeovers, visitors sip complimentary beverages while looking through the salon’s magazines to find style inspiration from models and empathy for what it’s like to be made of paper. Stylists bring personality to coifs by cutting and coloring hair with their artful techniques, and technicians embellish finger- and toe-tips with a trim and polish or gel. Beautification practices flow into relaxation mode during European facials or three massage styles that are more calming than a live performance of your favorite whale-sounds album.
Green Spa and Wellness Center has received recognition from neighborhood guides and politicos alike for its eco-friendly business practices and top-notch services. Within this three-story oasis, a team of therapists is joined by a master acupuncturist and an in-house doctor to deliver skin treatments, massages, and holistic healing. Visitors might stop in for organic facials and naturally derived body wraps that revitalize pores, waxing and threading treatments that defuzz the furry parts of birthday suits, or vegan polishes that leave nails pretty and free of bacon bits. Designed as a place where clients can spend the entire day, the spa also offers light, healthy lunches, a garden for high tea, and adult libations.
The skilled technicians at all of O Spa's three beauty havens focus on fostering whole-body well-being as they tend to skin with more than 10 treatments, including more than 10 massage modalities. Advanced med-spa treatments include laser hair removal with the Eterna Giovinezza by Quanta System, which destroys follicles at the root with its heated rays in 15-minute to two-hour sessions. Permanent-makeup sessions focus on defining facial features with cosmetic tattoos. The areas are first covered with a topical anesthetic to make the experience more comfortable before a permanent-makeup artist inks the lids with faux eyeliner, fills in the brows, or creates the illusion of full lips by tattooing "I Heart Mom" around them.
Ornate, Victorian-style chairs and couches perch on rich hardwood floors in Temple of Beauty Salon & Spa?s waiting area, where customers relax as they prepare for hair, skin, and nail services. Inside the salon, tall mirrors flank hairstyling stations, and pedicure chairs cradle clients as their toes soften into delicious prunes. A staff of certified beauticians join owner Magda, also known as Maggie, who has more than 30 years of experience as a nail, threading, and waxing specialist, and stylist Sam, who has coiffed hair for more than 40 years. Temple of Beauty outfits customers with professional products from Morrocanoil, Matrix, Aveda, and Biosilk.
The stylists at Idalias Salon believe that hair's health is crucial to its appearance. They take on the most damaged strands by nourishing hair with restorative treatments and designing new looks with wraps, relaxers, extensions, color, and the latest cutting techniques. At the in-house I Beauty Bar Boutique, a skincare specialist enhances faces with makeup and eyelash extensions.
Patrons can browse the boutique's collection of vegan mineral cosmetics alongside clothing and jewelry by independent designers. The airy loft space sports modernist orange- and grey-themed decor, and moods are lifted with an upbeat soundtrack of house music. Guests can also reserve the salon's private suite for special events or superhero quick changes.
