The aestheticians at Chen Skincare & Spa fight blemishes and signs of aging with skincare services backed by products from brands such as Dermalogica, and PCA Skin. Chen's signature facial follows a brief skin analysis and freckle Rorschach test with an organic mask that supplements the results of an exfoliation, extraction, and detoxifying massage. Anti-inflammatory gel and an oatmeal mask sing hymns of hydration to delicate epidermises during the sensitive-skin facial, and male clients neutralize razor burn with the deep pore cleansing of the gentlemen's facial. A full-body aromatherapy massage combines natural herb and flower scents with head-to-toe strokes in order to rebalance the body and mind more effectively than log rolling on an abacus does.
Warmly stained hardwood blankets the floor at Chen Skincare & Spa, where neutral-toned walls shut out such noisy outside distractions as ringing cell phones and road rage delivered by Morse code. Whimsical sets of bubble-shaped mirrors reflect the graceful shapes of vases sprouting tall grasses and branches.
Though A Touch of Sun Hair & Spa doesn't offer tanning, it still has plenty of reasons for its summery title. At this hair and makeup studio, it’s possible the name was inspired by the staff’s mission to treat each client with warmth and brighten their day by making them look and feel beautiful. The name also reflects the naturally derived products that sprout up throughout the salon; Davines shampoos nourish hair with herbs and flowers, sulfate-free Kevin Murphy styling products implant amino acids and essential oils, and Archipelago Botanicals soften skin with antioxidant-rich pomegranate extracts.
Stylists can transform natural hair or wigs with cut and color services and augment each treatment with extras such as makeup touchups, stress-relief massages, and reanimation hexes for especially lifeless ‘dos. On the spa side of things, aestheticians accentuate facial features with brow and lash tinting and perform waxing services for men and women.
The classic European facial will revivify your facade and rebalance your surface cells. Treatments are specialized for specific skin types, making each one as personalized as a BeDazzled handbag. Your friendly aesthetician will cleanse, tone, and exfoliate your face skin in a multi-layered rebuffing assault. A series of masks and gentle massages complete the renovation. The eye treatment brings extra attention to the sensitive area surrounding your peepers. The radius around your eye will get a gentle massage with additional cleaning and exfoliation, followed by a peaceful eye mask. The added aromatherapy will open your passages to the scents of serenity, further putting your mind in a place of peace and cotton kittens.
Opulent chandeliers hang from the ceiling, reflecting light off the gilded mirrors that decorate Jolie Toi Salon & Spa. Clients can recline on the leopard-print sofa in the waiting area before having their hair tousled, snipped, and braided into Celtic knots by owner-stylist Charbel Mousallem. With 15 years of styling experience in London, Lebanon, and the United States, Charbel?s haircuts, conditioning treatments, and professional styling have enhanced the heads of celebrities such as Elton John as well as contestants on America?s Next Top Model. Aesthetician Sylwia Gorzkowska rounds out the spa?s beautifying services and brings 10 years of experience to the table, having worked with the renowned Elemis and AmorePacific skincare companies. Her cleansing facials and waxing services have spruced up the faces of celebrities such as Tiki Barber and have found their way onto the printed pages of Vogue and Elle.
The massage therapists and aesthetician at Spa Dew perform treatments that combine Eastern and Western sensibilities—all within a tranquil, nature-inspired ambiance. The 5,000-square-foot space boasts a reception area with a waterfall and groupings of plants and flowers bring the outdoors in, as does a wall decorated with variously sized tree cross sections. The water fountain in the hallway further nods to nature, and leads to a steam room and spacious relaxation rooms for women and men.
A privacy suite allows couples to share time in a sauna and get a side-by-side Korean-style scrub or a massage with heated stones. The beauty experts also use nature-based products including sea salt, Dead Sea mud, and Decleor essential oils, which are free of harsh chemicals and animal derivatives such as unicorn tears.
Facials were meant to be relaxing—something the proprietors of Beau Esthetics try to infuse into every service at their spa. It begins the moment a client walks into the clean, white space and continues through each facial treatment and waxing service. Aestheticians use fine Decléor aromatherapy skincare products to even and tone the skin during each facial, taking care to keep their client in a peaceful state all the while. But skincare is really at the center of each service. Skincare therapies come with their own customizations to suit individual skin types and the unique microneedle therapy system (MTS) offers an intense anti-aging treatment that promotes collagen production.
