Dawn's Pizzazz crafts personalized coiffing experiences from detailed consultations, helping to earn it a spot as one of Salon Today's top-200 salons in 2011. A salon concierge can tailor a stylist recommendation to suit each client's needs. Cut-and-style odysseys begin with a cranium-racking consultation, which calculates an equation of lifestyle, personality, and hair type to determine a customized shaping strategy. After 30–45 minutes of soaking and scissoring, a final style preps hair for reentry onto sidewalk runways.
Body Beautiful of New York, Inc. beckons visitors into a tranquil, classically decorated space to escape the stresses of daily life. Cell-phone silence and adults-only policies keep the peace in the saffron-hued hair salon and the hallways that lead to private treatment rooms, where licensed cosmetologist and aesthetician Gineann lavishes physiques with facials, massages, waxing, and sunless tanning. Although the studio's passion lies in pampering, staffers also bolster health by offering nutritional counseling for those seeking to lose weight or to get back together with Jolly Green Giant exes. Meanwhile, shelves brimming with meditation music, candles, books, and body lotions available for purchase send clients home with a piece of the spa’s soothing atmosphere.
Though aesthetician Karen Fisher knows how to care for every facial feature, glamorizing her clients' eyes is what she truly loves to do. Karen creates alluring, come-hither eyes by building up women's natural lashes with a range of long-lasting treatments. She specializes in NovaLash extensions, which lengthen natural lid fringe with a subtle, dramatic, or cat-eye look for up to two months. Meanwhile, her professional applications of semi-permanent mascara leave lashes curled, voluminous, and lusciously dark for up to two weeks without smearing or dissolving in collisions with cold-cream tanker trucks.
Pastel-blue walls, plush black leather chairs, and potted plants set a calm and relaxing scene at Styles by Monica, where the trained staff revamps its clients’ looks with chic cuts and color treatments. With high-end products in their arsenal, the stylists also apply makeup and create updos for big events and tend to hands and feet with nail treatments.
A small army of flat-screen televisions clings to the walls inside COCO Nail Spa, entertaining guests as they get pampered. Clusters of oversized pedicure chairs and a long line of executive-style manicure chairs grant patrons deep comfort as their fingernails and toenails become prettier. Cozy treatment rooms offer privacy during massages, diamond-tipped microdermabrasion sessions, and waxings on everything from lower legs up to the third eyebrow, if you?ve got three eyes.
The nail technicians, massage therapists, and aestheticians at True Grace Spa & Nail use top-shelf products to yield long-lasting results. By slathering hands and feet in a private-label lotion containing pure botanical ingredients, nail technicians hydrate the skin without leaving the greasy after-feel associated with cheap lotions or used motor oil. During signature facials, aestheticians nourish faces with Decl?or products that contain all-natural ingredients. To enhance the therapeutic benefits of massage, kneading professionals may add the spa's signature Cellular Renewal lotion or Moisture Vitality lotion, both of which restore vitality to the skin and promote relaxation with subtle aromas of citrus or lavender.
