Building self-confidence is part of the foundation at Beauty Mark Spa. The staff works to improve women's quality of life with aesthetic services both traditional and technologically assisted. Trained aesthetician and laser technician, Susan L. Halbert not only boasts 20+ years of experience in the beauty industry, but also got her beauty know-how from Ross Burton, Oprah Winfrey's former professional makeup artist. Under the supervision of Dr. Lloyd D. Landsman MD PC, Halbert and her team arm themselves with Skinceuticals products to provide skincare treatments ranging from AHA chemical peels to microdermabrasion to white-tea-infused sunless spray tans and threading services.
The techs stay current by using a Syneron ELOS IPL laser to zap away sunspots, erase facial wrinkles, or tighten jowls and the neck. Though many services at Beauty Mark Spa are geared toward women, men are always welcome to partake in the center's med-spa treatments.
Wrapped in beige and russet tones, SoHo Urban Wax's private rooms cloister both male and female clients in warm serenity as expert aestheticians uproot unwanted hairs with dexterous digits and utmost discretion. Hard wax seizes strands from sensitive areas such as underarms, the upper lip, and funny bones, while warmer soft-wax strips lift fuzz from more durable spots, such as wool coats. While patrons perch on the red-leather banquette in the studio's waiting room, they can sip a proffered cup of coffee or gargle with hot tea while scanning black-and-white photos of the city.
Like the offspring of a flamingo and a zebra, Glitz & Glamor is black, white, and pink all over. Its vibrant shades surround tweens during two-hour parties. At the behest of tiara-crowned birthday girls, five guests gather inside a VIP party suite. They don pink bathrobes before noshing on pizza and singing karaoke alongside a big-screen TV. When stylists aren't hosting celebrations, they operate the establishment as a traditional salon and spa. During spa mani-pedis and chocolate deluxe facials, they also give mothers and daughters a chance to bond as well as two people hugging in a pool of super glue.
For more than 20 years, Racine Salon de Beaute and Spa has been a destination for makeovers, anti-aging treatments, and even an Oscar-nominated documentary or two. The salon and spa's varied services range from haircuts and extensions to the signature Oceans Racine body wrap?it includes a sea-mud wrap that's made with hydrating French seaweed, a stop in the seven-head steam shower, and an application of toning body cream.
But beyond beautifying and relaxing clients, the staff at Racine Salon also does its best to serve the community. Since 2003, the salon has been home to the Mondays at Racine cancer care program, which provides complimentary services for cancer patients. So the salon was a natural fit when HBO sought to make a documentary spotlighting how cancer patients respond to hair loss. The resulting documentary, Mondays at Racine, went on to nab an Oscar nomination and numerous film-festival awards.
