Fuzion Salon & Spa's band of professional pamperers lavishes clients with relaxing massages and skin-nourishing facials. Over the course of 60 minutes, a licensed massage therapist undermines stress' hold on the body with a tension-relieving Swedish massage. Signature long, flowing strokes soothe aching backs and weary limbs while evicting toxins from muscles and hastily built shanty towns beneath the spleen. Technicians turn their soothing powers onto patrons' faces with the classic facial, which begins with an exfoliation and double cleansing to free epidermis of loitering cells. A massage follows, kneading facial muscles into sublime submission and preventing them from sticking the next time their owner makes a funny face. Finally, visages soak in a nutrient-laden mask that softens skin and battles blemishes, and an expert aesthetician protects newly rejuvenated faces with a thin coat of toner. Floor-to-ceiling windows bathe the expansive salon in sunlight, casting a glow on sleek tile flooring, earthen hues, and an open floor plan that facilitates easy movement and mandatory postfacial break-dance contests.
At Jae D's Salon and Spa—a stress-free oasis tucked within the Crestwood Medical Office Building—owner Jae Dunn and her team marry their beauty expertise with a warm sense of humor. This winning combination, along with their full menu of services, has helped them to foster long-lasting relationships with their clients. Myriad hair services, including cuts, highlights, and all-over color, are among the salon's specialties. As men and women settle into salon chairs amid calming hues of lilac, stylists trim hair and tame unruly curls and frizz with formaldehyde-free Brazilian Blowout Zero Plus treatments.
Fluorescent lights linger overhead like glowing pads of butter, casting a glow on wood floors, cherry-red walls, and faux marble accents. Amid these mod trappings, skilled stylists renovate hair with high-end products by Redken and Matrix. But services also extend way beyond the scalp. Guests can solicit an aesthetician for a tan, mani-pedi, invigorating facial, or soothing massage session. The salon also offers a special quiet play section for children and the grown actors who play them on TV.
Whether you want to unclog pores, fight the effects of aging, make skin tone even, or serve sushi off your cheeks, one of Vitality's six enzyme peels has the natural-enzyme ingredient to do the job. Tone and tighten skin with a pore-shrinking pumpkin peel, or repair sun damage with a peel that uses vitamin C. The acne-clearing peel harnesses the power of cranberry to cleanse pores and sarcastically insult whiteheads until they wither in shame. You can also upgrade to your choice of specialty enzyme facial and pay the $40 difference.
Holistic Fitness aims to cleanse the body inside and out, employing staff members whose talents stretch as wide as their tallest client's arms. Three certified colon hydrotherapists, three massage therapists, and a doctor of chiropractic all call the holistic center home and offer services that complement one another. For example, Dr. Anne Roulo often recommends her chiropractic patients combine adjustments with colon hydrotherapy, which can increase energy levels and wash away toxic material.
Pearl-white salon chairs and a chandeliered foyer create a calm elegance that parallels Amoy's penchant for creating striking, creative hairstyles. A random sampling of the master stylist's resumé inevitably reads like a beauty-school student's wish list. Highlights include serving as the go-to hair guru of Christian Dior runway walkers, spearheading her own successful product line, and separate stints as the personal hairstylist for fashion titans John Galliano and Donatella Versace. Today Amoy uses the salon as a home turf, revamping the tresses of both walk-in clients and celebrities such as Sheryl Crow, Rihanna, and Naomi Campbell.
The popular Upper East Side salon endeavors to give every person who enters the star treatment. Clients cross the salon’s sunny, modern, dark-wood interior and engage in consultations that strategize approaches to hair type and styling needs. House specialties include Brazilian Blowout treatments, bridal styling, and ultraprecise haircuts that render faces as exquisitely framed as Roger Rabbit.
The team of aestheticians and massage therapists at Port Salon & Day Spa mix and match elements from classic spa treatments to rev up relaxation levels. The spa offers a variety of massages which span from deep tissue to aromatic Swedish massages. During signature manicures and pedicures, nails soak in customized herbs before a paraffin treatment seals in moisture. Hydrotherapy sessions are held in Austrian moor mud or milk baths, which nourish the skin. After conducting a complimentary skin analysis, licensed aestheticians administer facials with ice-pack masks, noninvasive light therapy, or hot and cold basalt stones. For intensive moisturizing, clients can choose a collagen facial, pumice peel facial, or pumpkin peel facial which also helps to decrease fine lines. Personalized consultations also precede hair treatments, which can leave tresses newly colored or done up for special occasions.
