While other young girls were out playing in the streets of her native Bangladesh, Sabrina Khan crouched over a pot of fruit, herbs, and spices. At the age of 10, she was already busy formulating the kinds of skin remedies that would later serve as the focal point of her spa in the United States.
Though she now has skincare down to a more exact science, much has stayed the same for Khan. As the owner of Victoria’s of New York Day Spa, she still relies on natural ingredients for her facial salves, which she pairs with ancient rituals designed to soothe the mind and body. Aside from Khan’s signature facials and nail services, the spa offers 10 distinct massage treatments designed to relieve severe tension, treat somatic dysfunction, and apply more therapeutic pressure to sore spots than a hug from a boa constructor.
Grasshopper-green walls and peach floor tiles flank the brightly lit space at Top Priority Salon, whose staff has been pampering clients for more than 16 years. Within the cheery interior, hairstylists occupy one side of the floor, reinventing looks with cut and color treatments fortified by products from the industry’s best-known names, such as Schwarzkopf, Goldwell, Pravana, and Redken. Nail artists showcase their talents on the opposite side of the salon, inviting clients to take a seat and enjoy an indulgent manicure, topped off with standard nail polish or acrylics. Additionally, cushy pedicure thrones encourage relaxation throughout indulgent hot-stone pedicures, enhanced by skin-softening masks and finished with polish. The salon also offers waxing for the face, underarms, and even the hands and fingers for those tired of masking their insecurities with restrictive oven mitts.
The team at Jon Ric Salon has one goal: make their clients look and feel like royalty, even though royalty is illegal in the US. To do so, the staff combines their skills with high-quality products from brands such as Wella, Rusk, and Pravana. In addition to their full slate of hair and nail services, they also do waxing and makeup applications. The salon’s interior features hanging yellow lights, elegant wood-framed mirrors with pedestals, flowers, and homey lamps that make other fluorescent-light salons look like interrogation rooms. Conveniently, Jon Ric Salon stays open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays.
At Refined Beauty Day Spa, there's no such thing as one-size-fits-all. With more than 30 years of experience between them, the spa's team of stylists, technicians, and massage therapists understand the value of a client-first philosophy. Staff members specialize in individual consultations, working with each client to map out the ideal hairstyle, nail art, or massage treatment. The team's lash and brow experts keep eyes expressive with waxing, threading, and tinting service. The spa is even home to a skilled aesthetician, whose facials, peels, and herbal treatments keep skin healthy and unblemished.
The massage therapists at Rejuvenate Day Spa melt tense muscles with dexterous digits. Practitioners begin by lubricating lumbar with Biotone massage cream for smoother kneading and somersaulting through art-museum air ducts. During the bamboo massage, stalks of varying lengths and diameters assist fingers with deep-tissue work to promote improved circulation and sensory-nerve perception. Swedish techniques encourage relaxation, ease tension, and result in more delicate pancakes. A furnished rest area offers clients a place to recuperate after each session.
