An orchestra of humming blow dryers welcomes guests into FlyDry Blowdry Bar, where expertly trained staffers enhance hairs via a menu of blowouts, mini manicures, custom makeup applications, and relaxing neck massages. FlyDry’s signature Flight Plan blowouts start with a scalp massage and shampoo, and include the Runway blowout, which produces sleek, pin-straight locks and the Round Trip blowout that results in bouncy, defined curls that rival the cute little tails of Shirley Temple’s pet piglets.
To permanently spruce up faces, Eylsa Ross blends clinical skill with artistry that's landed her work on celebrity mugs, television, and the pages of Shape, Real Simple, and InStyle magazines. In her experienced hands, which have dusted the faces of Matthew Perry and Christine Baranski, brows become bolder and lips become fuller. Elysa's work isn't limited to faces however; mastectomy patients rely on her for repigmentation.
Elysa also exposes complexions' natural glows with peels, microdermabrasion, and candelabra hats. She applies makeup to prep façades for weddings and events and hosts private parties.In addition to being an official Laura Mercier makeup artist, Elysa is a medical aesthetician in plastic surgery and dermatology offices. She started out by training with Pamela Taylor––who's made up the famous faces of the Rolling Stones and Billy Joel––and apprenticed with Laura Geller herself, whose line of cosmetics bears her name in stores across the nation.
The hair, closet, and home all benefit from a trip to Hair 2 Day Shop 4 Tomorrow. This salon, spa, and consignment boutique brings beauty and fashion together under one roof, making for a quirky, yet natural convergence of beauty treatments and hand-picked accessories. The salon is overseen by owner Ava Mellon. In her 20-plus years as a hairstylist Ava has studied with Vidal Sassoon and worked overseas, and has even lent her services to photo shoots and celebrity weddings. Under her direction, a staff of experienced stylists turns overgrown or outdated strands into tastefully cut, colored, and styled hairdos. Spa technicians do their part as well with facials and massages, and can also wax away unwanted hair or make mascara wands obsolete with lash tinting.
A visit wouldn't be complete without a stop in the consignment boutique, though. Here, furniture, fashion accessories, and artwork help clients upgrade their living spaces and wardrobes. The selection is always changing, but customers can expect to find a colorful selection or purses and shoes, retro china, and antique mirrors, which are just like modern mirrors without Wi-Fi.
If the diversity of the spa services in her repertoire is any measure, licensed aesthetician Julia Ostro’s beauty skills are singularly well-rounded. She draws on the power of natural botanicals and carefully calibrated cosmeceuticals to cleanse and perfect skin. Ostro customizes facials and peels using products from brands such as Vivant Pharmaceuticals. Services can be enhanced with add-ons, including galvanic treatments that help facials go the extra mile toward creating firm, scientifically literate skin. Natural nutrients from green clay and seaweed enrich body wraps and nourish skin during relaxing 60- to 90-minute treatments. To care for bodies and calm minds, she also offers private Hatha yoga sessions.
The staff at Delray Tan Company & Spa keeps bodies bronzed with an array of tanning services. Their traditional UV beds range from Levels 1 to 5, aiding everyone from casual tanners to the most devoted color seekers in their quest for the perfect tan. The HD Mystic tanning booth use automated technology to spritz self-tanning formula on bodies from head to toe in five different colors to fit skin types. The shop's Fantasy airbrush tans, meanwhile, rely on a trained technician to apply an even glow that accentuates the client's best features and lasts 7–10 days.
At ilash n Dash, treatments extend beyond basic beauty needs, literally. The staff adheres hair and eyelash extensions that add length and fullness. They use silk and mink synthetic lashes that are attached with pharmaceutical-grade adhesive. The spa staffers also smooth frizz with keratin treatments, and remove dead skin cells with micro peels and microdermabrasion treatments.
