A gold mermaid watches out over the bustling activity inside NY Splash Beauty Salon. As jets of water splash up against the gilded sculpture, clients seated at the reception bar relax before and after treatments, soaking in the sounds of tiny crashing waves. During appointments, stylists pamper patrons above the neck with haircuts, color treatments, and makeup applications. On the spa side, nail technicians clip, buff, and coat keratin covers with vibrant hues. Their waxing experts remove unwanted follicles from legs, arms, and faces in procedures that take less time than shaving or securing an eviction notice for squatting hairs.
Hair Today's seasoned stylists snip and primp their clients' manes with products such as Redken, Matrix, and American Crew, accentuating flattering features and keeping coifs in vogue or defiantly out of it. A shampoo cleans and freshens follicles, and a cut carves strands into enticing new forms, a two-step process as salutary as removing leaves and debris from a car's grill before brushing it with a full bucket of toothpaste. Head fronds can shift allegiance to another frequency along the spectrum of visible light after a partial color, and a supervening blow-dry finalizes the sleek new ‘do. Gentlemen, alternatively, can swing by the salon twice for a pair of 30-minute haircuts that keep domes trimmed and dapper enough to sweet-talk fedoras into never caving, no matter how much downward force a piggyback rider can exert on them.
As its name implies, Happy Choice Nails & Spa is all about choices. For example: do you prefer regular or chip-resistant Shellac polish? What color? Do you prefer your nails be round, square, or filed into an outline of the Rockies? Would you like a skin-softening paraffin treatment? How about a relaxing hand massage? Whatever your preference, the technicians can customize a service that matches your specific tastes, needs, and the outfits of your favorite finger puppets.?But beyond delivering choices, the technicians also deliver peace of mind by following strict sanitation practices. These include sterilizing nail tools inside a medical autoclave and using disposable nail files and buffers.
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 seasoned aestheticians at Artistex tap into a cache of elixirs sourced from plants and minerals to cloak bodies in comfort and beauty. They perform a suite of services, pampering fingers and toes with mani-pedis, rejuvenating mugs with a host of facials, and encouraging retirement of Dolly Parton wigs with permanent-hair-coloring services.
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.
