Situated inside the Dublin Holiday Inn, Spa Bella Day Spa combines spa treatments with hotel luxuries such as an indoor pool, hot tub, and exclusive restaurant services during spa parties. Signature skincare services nourish complexions with Jean D'Arcel European cosmetics. Herbal-soaked linen body wraps, Dead Sea mud masks, and skin-purifying treatments beautify bodies while also ridding them of toxins and regret about offending a police horse.
The staff at Alexandra's European Skin Care Spa keeps its aesthetic armory stocked with technology ready to aid in beautifying missions. The Formostar infrared body wraps help patients break down fat cells without undressing, and the two wands connected to the Beautiful Image Model 900 send zaps of microcurrents at facial wrinkles, unwanted body flab, and underperforming orchestras. A selection of diamond or crystal tips pair with the spa’s FDA-approved microdermabrasion system to fend off blotches and blemishes, and treatments, such as the oxygen facial, target complexions with high-pressure gusts of oxygen and mists of nutrient-rich serum that opens pores and revitalizes surfaces. The spa also schedules traditional treatments, including massage, waxing, and Bronze Biologic spray-tanning sessions. By stocking up on products from Image Skincare and Circadia by Dr. Pugliese, they can augment each of their treatments and never have to answer the sphinx that guards each drugstore's beauty aisle.

At Strictly French Nail Salon, owner Carina Campo leads a team of skilled nail techs who beautify clients’ finger and toe tips with decorative techniques such as glitter tips, pink and white acrylics, and a multitude of designs.

The salon’s more than 200 colors of glitter tips render nails as sparkly as a disco ball under the bright lights of police questioning, while shellac polish strengthens keratin with a gel-like finish that lasts for up to three weeks.
