Bodhi Holistic Spa houses a squadron of licensed massage therapists who strive to knead woebegone bodies back to health with a multicultural variety of techniques. During the therapeutic massage, a dexterous set of digits rubs soothing oils up and down the entire body, working out knotty discomfort and aiming to increase blood and lymph flow from head to toe. The infrared emitters in the subsequent sauna session radiate their heat directly into refreshed guests, eliminating the need for steam or lathering one’s body in tabasco sauce. Thirty minutes in the heat box can help to flush toxins and relax muscles for a full-throttle rejuvenation.
Lux is an upscale, full-service Aveda salon that seeks to pamper its clients. Walking in, salon-goers are handed a tea or wine drink, and offered their choice of a complimentary scalp, hand, or finishing-touch makeup treatment. Licensed stylists cut and color hair using all-natural Aveda products, and experienced aestheticians offer nailcare, makeup application, and hair-removal treatments. Try having a full set of eyelash extensions applied, or indulge in a spa mani-pedi at this luxurious salon in historic Saugerties.
If it weren't for the stylists snipping coifs in front of full-length mirrors, and the shelves full of shampoos and coloring products, it would be easy to mistake Cuts Unisex Salon for a cozy cafe. Patrons find the same camaraderie from their scissor-wielders as they would from a barista they see every morning. And for those seeking the invigoration of a cup of coffee or dip into a snake pit, Cuts Unisex Salon augments their beauty services with reiki and needleless acupuncture.
The stylists at Cutting Corner Hair Salon and Day Spa offer a full range of salon services, including haircuts, colorings, and keratin hair-smoothing treatments. On the spa side, body wraps made with Austrian moor mud and Repêchage four-layer seaweed facials anchor a menu of indulgent body treatments.
When Pete and Dawn Padilla opened A Cut From Above, they brought Paul Mitchell. Lots of it. Low-ammonia hair-color with a beeswax base, conditioning products made with wild ginger, and Paul Mitchell's professional shampoos, conditioners, and other coif elixirs fill the tool-chests of the salon's staff—chests that were taken from very stylish pirates. With these products, they tend to the locks of clients with great skill. Outside the realm of the scalp, a massage therapist with three decades of experience un-knots muscles, a nail technician wrangles cuticles, and an ear-piercing specialist makes the phenomenon of listening both functional and fashionable.
In almost 30 malls sprinkled across four states, Beauty Plus Salon beckons prospective makeover recipients with a fleet of skilled stylists and a colossal selection of professional beauty products. "The beauty industry never slows down," staffers say on Facebook, so "neither do we." That's why mall-goers find Beauty Salon open seven days a week. Between the retail shelves that average 500 nail polish colors, clients get gussied with services that pamper hair, skin, and nails.
