Cindy Barshop may have a familiar face. She gained reality-TV fame as a cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, but she found success much earlier when the Madison Avenue spa she founded more than 10 years ago grew into a hair-removal brand known throughout the country. Completely Bare’s waxing specialists dab bikini lines with the shop’s proprietary blend of ouch-less wax, which adheres to hair instead of skin to avoid the painful pull that often accompanies a waxing session. The blend is hypoallergenic and does not cause acne, which makes it ideal for depilating sensitive skin and touchy bodily zones. Routine waxing sessions add extra sparkle with the salon’s vajazzling service, which bedecks newly hair-free spots with up to 70 Swarovski crystals arranged into such shapes as hearts, stars, peace signs, and MPAA ratings. The spa specialists also migrate beyond the below-the-belt area to polish the rest of the body with facials, laser hair removal, spray tanning, and teeth whitening.
Spa Sydell traces its roots to 1982, when it opened in Buckhead with a vision of helping Atlantans ease away tension and escape the pressures of daily life. More than 30 years later, Spa Sydell has grown to seven locations while continuing its commitment to providing each customer with personalized attention to ensure superior service and quality.
Each of the spa’s outposts exhibits a unique personality—the larger facilities echo with the sounds of water trickling down fountain displays, soothing scents permeate the air, tropical flowers are placed with care, and the more intimate boutique locations host private treatment rooms in which botanical fragrances couple with the sounds of orchestral twee pop. Regardless of the locale, expect a relaxing, personalized massage experience in which a therapist tends to your individual aches and pains with soothing strokes. During facials, the spa’s aestheticians blend signature products individually selected and previously tested on the CEO.
Mocha Chic Spa Studio’s aestheticians reach for organic or technologically enhanced methods as they transform their clients’ skin with one of 18 different facials. Whether they treat complexions to the skin-problem-solving powers of blue-agave extract, ultrasonic waves, or restraining orders addressed to individual pimples, the patient staff of skin tenders buffs away dulled and blemished cells to harvest fresher, brighter skin.
A pregnancy or postpartum massage remedies the tensions that come with pregnancy through a bevy of benefits. Blood pressure and aching backs decrease while spirits and relaxation increase. A team of fully licensed massage therapists is adept at treating the fragile state of a woman during gestation. They'll use their years of experience to carefully knead out negative nancies that have lodged themselves into crooks and connective tissues. Each massage is personalized depending on the trimester and specific ailments of the maiden in distress. The same tender care is given to non-pregnant females and males who opt for the therapeutic massage. Using methodical and deliberate hand gestures, worries and hardships will quickly become desert rain.
According to Nailgrove &Spa Salon, a little piece of heaven includes a warm algae wrap, aromatherapy massage, facial, and peppermint pedicure. The aptly named massage package also includes an age-defying collagen manicure, makeup application, and a light lunch. It’s a luxurious treatment, but it isn’t the only service that will have clients feeling like they’re walking on air or a giant air hockey table. The spa salon also features enzyme or pumpkin peels, hot stone massages, and dead sea salt exfoliation, and all their services are available a la carte or in packages.
And with each package or service, the staff work toward their number one goal of providing exceptional service and developing a lifelong relationship with their clients. Through both customized treatments and open communication, the team works to inspire their clients to consider their skin and nail care regime as a chance for personal renewal.
