Amid their salon’s abundant lights and expansive mirrors, the stylists at Hair Creations rejuvenate hairstyles and beautify bodies. Joico products accentuate cuts, styles, colorings, and other hair treatments; waxing services eliminate unwanted fuzz on all areas of the body; and natural-looking gel nails and long-lasting Shellac polish help nails regain their splendor after long nights spent clawing into bank vaults.
Berthas European Spa is a warm, inviting oasis filled with skilled aestheticians who revitalize bodies with a variety of spa services. During the 75-minute foot-pampering session, guests settle into a sleek, modern pedicure station accented with lush pillows. A skilled technician treats tough feet to a soothing soak before filing unruly nails into shape and tending to clamorous cuticles. Nail specialists then give soles a sea-salt scrub with chocolate, pomegranate, or mint aromas, which have been proven to be the most effective scents for tempting away unwanted debris and dermaflaws. Finally, a foot-and-leg massage soothes achy muscles, a moisturizing foot mask hydrates thirsty feet, and nails get a fresh coat of paint. The 45-minute chocolate spa manicure closely mimics the pedicure procedure, rounding out distressed fingers and nails while moisturizing the hands that feed you with a cocoa-based phalange mask.
After gliding over glistening wooden floors supporting chic, modern fixtures, licensed aesthetician Najia Rohlf and her team greet guests in need of custom skin revitalization. In the first phase of the 60-minute European facial, a staff member cleanses pores and dusts off skin detritus. Extraction follows exfoliation, and then the aesthetician sheathes skin with a mask designed to ward off cheek-pinching aunts. Finally, a moisturizer restores suppleness and vanishes croissant flakes holding on since breakfast. Following treatments, clients can admire their newly radiant visages in nearby storefront windows and crossing guards' suits of armor.
Though she's an aspiring Real Housewife, Barbara Ellsworth is no stay-at-home mom. The cosmetic- and plastic-surgical nurse of 13 years oversees Larchmont Laser Medical Spa’s staff of medical aestheticians. The tranquil, robin's-egg-blue walls of her facility offer a suitably upscale backdrop for the slate of med-spa and beauty services. Hair removal is a spa specialty, whether via warm wax, thin threads, or the same lasers that shaved the beard off the man in the moon. The aestheticians also oversee slimming VelaShape treatments and skin-resurfacing HydraFacials that help keep complexions youthful and smooth in case the Bravo camera crews show up.
Salon V's stylists tame unruly manes with keratin treatments and add to nature's handiwork with permanent and clip-on human hair extensions. They can also skillfully correct color mistakes, such as over-processed color and unflattering tints. Aestheticians pamper guests with massages, facials, waxing, and spray tanning. The bridal crew, which is comprised of stylists and certified makeup artists, artfully preps ladies for graceful, elegant, and traditional backflips down the aisle. The salon also features a boutique with headpieces, veils, and accessories for the big day.
