Paradise Nails specializes in prettying up your fingers and toes. Nail technicians pamper each extremity during manicures and pedicures, rendering hands and feet not only shaped, cleaned, and polished, but feeling as loose and relaxed as a sock puppet that narrowly escaped the washing machine. In addition to standard mani-pedis they also offer gel no-chip treatments, and stock a wide array of polishes.
Floral wallpaper hints at a reliance on nature at Botanica Day Spa, and the center's staff of skincare professionals fittingly wields seaweed, mediterranean mud, and peppermint. They use the natural elixirs in treatments that complement each client's particular needs, and microdermabrasion and ultrasonic exfoliation prove a willingness to accept technology, much like making an extra house key for RoboCop. Calm exhalations drift upward from patrons cloaked in spa wraps, punctuating the steady rasp of emery boards during manicures and pedicures in the spa.
Twenty-five years ago, a small group of women envisioned a client-centric salon where no two haircuts were alike. Ambiance Salon is the product of that vision, a place where stylists assess each client’s hair type and craft a look that meets their needs and goals.
Through sleek cuts, cutting-edge coloring, and keratin smoothing treatments, these stylists are able to breathe new life into hair. The staff also pampers with mani-pedis, eyebrow shaping, and airbrush tanning.
When Angel Tips opened the doors to its single Long Island store in 1996, it had a simple premise: to offer professional nail, waxing, and beauty services at an affordable price. Although the company has expanded to more than 60 locations across New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut since then, their focus on professionalism remains the same. They even require all of their licensed professionals to hone their skills at a specialized training center in Connecticut.
Though Angel Tips expertly performs waxing services and installs eyelash extensions, their specialty lies in nail care. Their technicians perform traditional, gel, and acrylic manicures, as well as specialty pedicures with paraffin and hot stone massages. Cleanliness, like professionalism and affordability, is a top priority; all locations use sanitized tools, disposable files and buffer pads, and pedicure chairs that have fully outgrown their teenage grunge phases.
Therapy Spa Beauty and Health offers a slate of facials, from simple teen acne treatments to light-based anti-aging procedures, all with the common aim of helping clients attain their image goals and boost their self-confidence. Their European deep-cleaning facials provide general purification and hydration for all skin types, and collagen treatments use a nourishing mask to soften fine lines and help stymie other signs of aging. The staff further guides clients to optimal beauty with the Transitions Lifestyle body slimming system. This system uses meal plans, supplements, and an interactive web tracking system to help clients slim down and finally fit into their high school backpack.
