People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
The entire spa is quiet and calming, and the decor is simple and soothing. Because we are located on the second floor, we have a private and secluded ambiance.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
Covering skin imperfections, such as black heads, breakouts and skin lesions, with lots of make up. To me, healthy and radiant skin is more beautiful than anything else. Start taking care of your skin instead of covering it up.
How did you get started in the industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
I've always been interested in health, beauty, and well-being, but I studied and worked in different fields for long time. I found out that this is the industry that could integrate all the subjects I'm passionate about. Now I love and enjoy what I am doing.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
As we say, "beauty comes from within." Adding a positive attitude in to our daily routine makes everything easier. Start your day with good intentions and positive thoughts, and let your inner beauty shine through your skin. Be the first one who smiles, because "when you smile at the world, the whole world smiles back."
The stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists at Christine Valmy Salon & Day Spa aim to transform body, mind, and spirit with services that range from simple haircuts and mani-pedis, to advanced electrolysis and microdermabrasions, to restorative massages and all-day spa packages. Clients pamper themselves with massages and body treatments such as the hot-stone massage, where the heat and gentle pressure of warm basalt stones help to relieve muscle tension and stress, or the chamomile body scrub, which soothes sensitive skin and improves circulation using herbal exfoliation. An ordinary day can become a luxurious mini-vacation with spa packages, which include a complimentary sauna and incorporate massages, facials, hair and nail treatments, and a private herbal steam shower to relax and rejuvenate the body and mind. And for the big day, Christine Valmy Salon & Day Spa offers wedding packages for the bride, groom, or members of the wedding party, helping to ease wedding jitters and warm cold feet.
Grace Skin & Body Care offers a variety of skin-centric treatments to help keep the body's largest organ in tip-top shape. Choose from 10 different types of facials, many of which are specially formulated to treat problems such as acne, signs of aging, and loose skin. Aside from the face, there are treatments for other areas of the body: Swedish massages help to heal the body by destroying stress and tension, while body scrubs use sea salts to exfoliate away dead skin cells and free-riding barnacles.
Beau Monde Salon and Spa owner Liz Pierro is committed to pursuing the most modern hair and aesthetics treatments, which has led to the curation of a service menu that seems to include almost everything. Stylists begin each service with a shampoo and scalp massage, and can also take clients into private rooms for fittings of ready-to-wear wigs and sheitels. In spa rooms that are equally private because they have doors, therapists perform Beau Monde's signature deluxe massages, which combine two modalities into a double-length session, as well as custom body wraps with mud and pure marine extracts. The rest of the menu includes everything from manicures to ultrasonic cavitation, all of which is performed in a beautiful, like-home space furnished with hardwood floors, sheer curtains, and showers lined with spa tile.
Though most aestheticians worry most about how to style hair, the staff at Nicole Beauty Spa care more about removing it. Though they can remove unwanted strands with high-tech methods such as laser hair removal or more traditional treatments such as waxing, their specialty is threading. This ancient Eastern form of hair removal uses only a single strand of looped thread, which threaders yield to precisely surround and remove strands of hair. They can target large swathes of area on the face, or fine-tune their approach to carefully shape and groom brows. In addition to these hair-removal treatments, staff also offer a range of spa treatments. These include relaxing massages, mani-pedis, facials, and artful henna application noting the after-care instructions of your services.
