While Lisa Boyd's career as a massage therapist has spanned a decade, Valentine’s Day of 2012 marked a special milestone—the opening of Bella Amore Day Spa. She works alongside her team of spa technicians to coax knots from muscles with a variety of massage modalities. The staff also offers acupuncture, facials, body wraps, and spa parties, in which guests get pampered as a group and then eat a cake that looks like a glass of cucumber water.
Desiree Chmura was a featured aesthetician at the 2010 Aesthetic Everything Oscar Gifting Suite, and, as she pampered famous pores before the Academy Awards, she realized she wanted to open up her own med spa. She's trained in a sweeping array of medical-grade skincare and cosmetic disciplines and has advised listeners on Cosmo's XM radio show on how to reduce inches with a seaweed wrap and how to ensnare a crush with a pair of tweezers.
To create her spa, Desiree corralled a staff of nurses and aestheticians. With treatments that range from deep-cleansing facials and ear candling to dermal fillers and photofacials, guests of all beautification goals can find a service right for them.
Although they moved to new, larger digs in April 2012, the team of expert stylists at Renaissance Salon still delivers the same trusted cuts, colors, and salon services that they've been doling out since 2007. Senior colorists Jennifer and Jessica excel at enriching locks with dimensional color, whereas bridal expert Krista dominates when it comes to readying clients for weddings. Michelle issues precision snips that transform played-out looks into fashionable 'dos, and trendsetter Julie remains ever-vigilant in the hunt for the most adventurous styles. The senior teams is joined by a crew of five fellow stylists and two assistants, but no matter their relative experience levels, their training expectation remains the same; all staff members at Renaissance Salon are required to attend at least two advanced-training seminars annually.
Serving more than 5,000 clients since 2007, Dr. Ismail Ozcan and the rest of the experienced staff at Oz Medi-Spa Center wield a laser to combat acne, wrinkles, sun spots, pregnancy masks, and unsightly body hair. Male and female technicians are available to operate the device, which emits pulsating beams of light that penetrate the layers of skin to tend to issues. Dr. Ozcan also performs laser-free fixers, including Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Belotero injections, as well as microdermabrasion and varicose vein treatments. The center is open six days a week with flexible appointment times.
Beauty Garden welcomes guests with a white trellis adorned with pink flowers. Floral wallpaper draws guests further in before stylists lead them to a mirror-facing chair for a hair treatment or to a nail station for some hand and foot pampering. They color, curl, style, and trim hair or adorn nails with painstaking nail art and hydrate hands with paraffin dips.
Upon visiting, you will quickly become enchanted by the city-like aura. Anchored in the heart of Long Island, Off 7th Hair Salon captures the flair and sophistication of an archetypical loft studio of NYC-- it’s simply Manhattan flavor emanating off Fashion Avenue.
