The savvy team at Epiphany Day Spa dispels stress and unprettiness with a hefty roster of hair services, skincare and bodycare treatments, and spa packages. After slipping into a robe and slippers, clients can lounge in a private room, where an aesthetician buffs away dead skin cells and skin dullness with microdermabrasions and chemical peels. Out on the salon floor, stylists revive lackluster manes with braids, weaves, and coloring services, while intimate massage rooms create a welcoming and warm environment for clients to kick up their feet and de-stress during 60-minute sessions.
The candlelit crevices of the spa further encourage guests to relax, nibble on complimentary cheese and crackers, and sip soothing cups of tea or coffee as they retreat to the waiting lounge to enjoy a moment of peace or attempt to recite the Declaration of Independence in pig Latin. Those in search of a domestic skincare regime can peruse Epiphany?s stock of moisturizers, eye creams, and masks from the Your Name Cosmetics and CosMedical Skin Care lines.
The opposite of a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside of an enigma, SophistiCut Salon & Spa is a pampering haven wrapped inside another pampering haven. The salon and spa sets up shop inside Long Island Marriott hotel's beautifying oasis, and it’s no secret what happens there. Professional stylists and aestheticians pamper clients with a full menu of services. Though these range from signature haircuts to color applications and highlights, the versatile staff's skills, like Vulcan ears, extend far past hair. Hot stones and aromatherapy oils ripple across muscles like a coin dropped into a sink full of milk, and aestheticians deep clean skin and shrink pores with facials.
With a menu that introduces traditional Italian fare to a modern culinary sensibility, Adesso Bistro's chefs have garnered acclaim from a host of publications including the Vancouver Courier and the Globe and Mail. "Adesso" translates to "now" in Italian, symbolizing the culinary artisans' commitment to turning fresh locally sourced and organic ingredients into vibrant plates that carry the flavours of Italy's northwestern coastal region Liguria. Known for its capital city of Genoa, the seafood-loving region is dotted with small towns that produce dynamic takes on Italian staples such as foccaccia, pesto, and calamari. Adesso's owners line its facade with lush vegetation and accent the dining room with dark wood tables and chairs. Servers flit imported and local wines to tables dotting the outdoor patio among neatly trimmed bushes and the sweet sounds of the eatery's three squirrel tenors.
The skilled technicians at all of O Spa's three beauty havens focus on fostering whole-body well-being as they tend to skin with more than 10 treatments, including more than 10 massage modalities. Advanced med-spa treatments include laser hair removal with the Eterna Giovinezza by Quanta System, which destroys follicles at the root with its heated rays in 15-minute to two-hour sessions. Permanent-makeup sessions focus on defining facial features with cosmetic tattoos. The areas are first covered with a topical anesthetic to make the experience more comfortable before a permanent-makeup artist inks the lids with faux eyeliner, fills in the brows, or creates the illusion of full lips by tattooing "I Heart Mom" around them.
Clients in search of nonsurgical solutions to their skincare needs can hop into Cavi Spa Skin & Body Center?s Visia complexion analysis, which peers into the topical and subsurface layers of the skin, exposing UV damage and pore depth, before serving up a personalized skin-youthifying blueprint. A course of medical-grade chemical peels, microdermabrasions, or injectables can leave complexions radiating with reclaimed vigor, or teeth-whitening procedures can remove stains and add subtle sparkle to smiles. Clients looking for more dramatic results can explore the doctor?s surgical options, which can transform torsos, limbs, and faces into stunningly youthful, and often undetectably natural, versions of their former selves.
Floor-to-ceiling glass walls enclose The Edge Hair Salon, making the chic Roosevelt Field mall beauty haven hard to miss. Inside, deep coral hues and black accents surround a team of stylists, who together have more than 30 years of hair-sculpting experience. The crew tests the shampoo-filled waters with modern snipping techniques and updates dull hues with highlights and single-process color treatments, eliminating most reasons to go bobbing for apples in a tub of paint. For special occasions, airbrush-makeup artists flawlessly apply foundation and colorful eye shadow to complement elegant updos.
