At S&K Lady's Beauty Spa Center, professional aesthetician Suki Chen calls on more than 15 years of experience to carefully analyze and tend to the unique needs of many different faces. Skincare experts calm dehydrated or acne-prone visages by applying naturally derived G.M. Collin products, whose benefits have been featured on the blemish-free pages of many high-fashion publications. Technicians also provide firming and toning body treatments, slough away expired cells with diamond-peel microdermabrasion, and facilitate the removal of moles and their relocation back into the wild.
With more than 20 years as a practicing aesthetician and makeup artist under her belt, Nelofar Rayani keeps her own skills and those of her staff fresh by enrolling in continuing-education classes that elucidate the newest skincare and beauty products and techniques. Together, she and her stable of consummate professionals at Professional Brows work to bring out the best in their clients with flattering hairstyles, soothing skincare, and precise eyebrow shaping. The salon's services also include traditional henna tattoos, waxing, and eyebrow tinting to reward strands that survive waxing.
To say that Redken Saloon Salon is loyal to the Redken brand might merely be the simplest way of putting it. Beyond loyalty, the salon’s staff trusts Redken products to perform on cue, making each client’s style look its best and occasionally braid itself. All the hair services at the Astoria salon—whether performed by owner Frank Arcabascio or another savvy stylist—use Redken products that have been trusted by salons for more than 50 years. To best wield each rich hue and styling product, each stylist is also trained by Redken or by Frank directly.
The technicians at Queens Laser Hair Removal smooth, tighten, and resurface skin with an arsenal of laser treatments, chemical peels, and cosmetic fillers. By passing a beam of laser light through the skin, the team can permanently reduce unwanted hair across the body or erase veins webbed across the legs. Laser skin tightening deeply heats facial tissue to contour loose skin around the face and neck and defrost icicles hanging from the chin.
Splashes of red, slate gray, and black pop up in Taina Salon’s modern decor, which surrounds visitors as stylists artfully refresh their locks. After a sudsy shampoo, a bout of styling, cutting, and coloring services inspires brand-new looks to perch atop heads. The hair experts also administer scalp treatments designed to nourish strands and just-sprouted hats from the very moment they appear.
Brazilian Keratin Treatments are a long-lasting, relaxer-free method of eliminating frizz and making hair smooth, shiny, and easy to style. Using a complex formula with the main ingredient keratin (the protein that makes up hair) and applications of an extremely hot iron, the stylists at Demi Salon will goop your frizz and then iron it into oblivion, leaving each filament of your cuticle-covered follicular filaments infused with natural hair proteins—smoother, silkier, and as shiny as Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize. Also exactly like Al Gore's Peace Prize, Keratin-treated hair must be coddled for a few days, lest kinks and crimps form as the treatment sets, and should be washed with sulfate- and sodium chloride-free shampoos to lengthen the effects. With proper care, a Brazilian Keratin Treatment can last up to a few months, allowing you to meet an entirely new group of friends and trick them into thinking your hair never looked like Dustin Diamond's. Additionally, Demi Salon's streamlined studio, fitted with handsome hardwood floors and an open airy layout, makes it an ideal spot for streamlining your mane and adopting a new, less frazzled alter ego.
