Chic, light-filled confines replete with tall mirrors and an elegant white-and-brown color scheme welcome clients into Bernard’s Salon and Spa. The modern, opulent look of the space hints at a rich line of products used in-house, including Dermalogica, Unite, Becca, and Jan Marini. Ultramodern hairstyling and European hair-coloring services make use of these hair-buttressing serums to enliven tresses with fresh looks, and one-hour blow-outs leave strands more polished than the aftermath of two olive-oil trucks colliding on freshly waxed bowling-alley lanes. To attend to nonhairdocentric concerns, Bernard’s staff shows clients to private treatment rooms for massage, waxing, and facial services. The savvy team helps both spa and salon clients extend the lives of their services by recommending the proper products to take home or by encasing them in bubble-wrap cocoon.
At La Belle Fit, fitness classes, spa services, personal training, and nutritional counseling team up to lead patrons toward total-body wellness inside and out. Visitors can choose from more than 50 fitness classes at the gym's four locations each week, tackling sessions dedicated to dance, spin, barre, and active conditioning. Students bestride Star Trac Spinner stationary bikes in spin classes and line up at the ballet barre in Studio Barre, which combines elements of Pilates, yoga, and orthopedic stretching to form a low-impact, high-intensity program. To singe calories and tone physiques sans dance moves, trainers lead sessions of step, kickboxing, and TRX suspension.
La Belle Fit complements their group fitness programs with one-on-one personal-training sessions and body-rejuvenating massage services helmed by a certified massage therapist. An on-site nutritionist helps patrons maximize the results of their workouts by recommending healthy grocery shopping lists free of bacon-stuffed twinkies deep fried in bacon-stuffed twinkie fat.
The aestheticians at Cham-Pagne Salon & Spa take stock of each client's beauty behests before launching into treatments that rely on brand-name products. Nail nurses decorate digits with OPI and Essie polishes during manicures, and stylists shampoo strands with Italian-imported Davines products before shaping them into chic new 'dos. Cham-Pagne's stylists can trim the tresses of anyone in the family, and they even host Princess Parties, during which girls can emulate Mom by enjoying miniature versions of manicures, pedicures, and makeup applications. Grownup pedicures find technicians kneading arches with rolled-up copies of Reader's Digest and one of the spa's signature scents. The salon's 30-minute crystal body-art sessions add twinkling contrast to the dark shades that UV-free airbrush tans bequeath to bodies.
Fantagio Spa doesn't feel like a spa as much as it exudes the air of a Middle Eastern palace.

In this palatial space, guests bask in soothing facials and mani-pedis, while treating their statures to tranquil massages and body wraps. Chocolate mud treatments awaken the body's senses and uncontrollable urge to nibble on its own arm with antioxidant-packed dark cocoa. Spa packages, meanwhile, combine facials, massages, and mani-pedis for up to four hours of blissful pampering.
