Partnered with Aveda, Corto's Salon & Seasons Spa contains knowledgeable beauticians who pamper bodies with soothing facials and skin-smoothing waxing services. Spend an hour relaxing amid sumptuous hues and warm lights as the signature facial assiduously works to rejuvenate skin via personalized products and tender hands. Philosophers can emerge from bliss with reduced facial lines and a clear head, perfect for materializing hypotheses regarding the makeup of a platonically ideal bologna sandwich. With the facial, hands and feet can relish a resplendent massage that will leave them feeling as light and free as appendages felt before the advent of gravity. For waxing services, bewhiskered bikini lines ($25) and lanate lips, brows, and chins ($35) are improved via wieldy wax, which works to gather troublesome tufts and send them packing. Furry forearms ($25) and ruffled chests ($45) can even be rendered sleeker than their amphibian counterparts.
At The Healing Place Massage Therapy & Wellness Center, the continual presence of music accompanies each relaxing service from eyebrow waxes to natural-stone massages. Staffers pamper digits with mani-pedis while contemporary jazz tunes waft through the air, inspiring newly painted hands to play the saxophone when they get home. Meanwhile, soothing facials and tension-defusing massages are set to the soundtrack of tranquil therapeutic music. Playing relaxing music is just one of the ways The Healing Place Massage Therapy & Wellness Center strives to make the business a go-to spot for blissful repose.
At About Face by Erica, aesthetician Erica Stevenson focuses on “the art of staying young,” refreshing clients with facial treatments, makeup applications, and waxing. She also helps keep clients feeling as young as possible with comprehensive makeup-application lessons and tips on which restaurants still sell kids’ menu items to nonminors. Such services are complemented by the work of resident stylist Kelly Mitecki, who performs special-occasion services such as bridal updos.
Muscle kneader Toveh Zaifert knows that every one of her clients is different. That's why each of her massages is different as well. A graduate of the New York Institute of Massage, Toveh specializes in the customization of her treatments to fit each individual's needs. When she begins a treatment, she'll ask if there are any specific aches, pains, or fears of cowbells she can help allay. Clients then can also choose whether they'd like soothing music played or prefer the serenity of silence. Toveh has trained in a number of massage modalities and is particularly skilled at Swedish, deep-tissue, and medical massage.
From head to toe, inside and out, the attentive staff at You're So Vain Salon and Spa cossets clients with therapeutic services. Stylists twist and tease locks into vibrant new styles and nail techs, meanwhile, fortify fingers and toes with gobs of mortar or long-lasting OPI color. Aestheticians give attention to epidermal layers with chemical peels and DermaSweep MD—a facial that sweeps away dead skin cells with topical solutions, vacuum pressure, and a precision brush-tip exfoliation. The spa treatments, including hot-stone massages and teeth whitening, can be combined into packages, with bubblegum-scented options for Little Girls spa parties.
At New Trendz Salon, European facials start with a skin analysis, during which a skin expert customizes products to rejuvenate the customer’s skin, be it oily, normal, or drier than a slice of toast’s sense of humor. A moist steam open pores so they can be purged of dirt and impurities, and a custom mask soothes frontispieces back to youthful vigor. During treatments, faces rejoice during a soothing facial massage, and arms and hands dance with delight during a massage with moisturizer.

These services include men’s and women’s haircuts and coloring treatments, facials, and mani-pedis.
