Najia Rohlf of Najia's Esthetic Skin and Laser Center beautifies skin with every tool at her disposal, from glo therapeutics products to Palomar lasers and electrolysis. In addition to a full list of waxing and tanning services, she removes unwanted hair with beams of light and banishes signs of aging with Botox. Once she has skin looking healthy, she decorates it with permanent makeup, semipermanent mascara, and sprinkles of glitter guaranteed to never go away.
Though she's an aspiring Real Housewife, Barbara Ellsworth is no stay-at-home mom. The cosmetic- and plastic-surgical nurse of 13 years oversees Larchmont Laser Medical Spa’s staff of medical aestheticians. The tranquil, robin's-egg-blue walls of her facility offer a suitably upscale backdrop for the slate of med-spa and beauty services. Hair removal is a spa specialty, whether via warm wax, thin threads, or the same lasers that shaved the beard off the man in the moon. The aestheticians also oversee slimming VelaShape treatments and skin-resurfacing HydraFacials that help keep complexions youthful and smooth in case the Bravo camera crews show up.
A decade ago, Heather Adessa began her beauty career behind a department store makeup counter. But it wasn't long before word spread about her expert eye for color. These days, the New York-based makeup artist counts a slew of celebrities as clients, and her work is often seen on programs like The Today Show and E! News, or in the pages of Good Housekeeping.
In addition to catering to high-profile clients, Heather founded Glo Beauty Bar to bring her professional makeup services to the masses. She specializes in wedding day makeup, but can also help clients get ready for all sorts of occasions, with a service menu that includes haircuts and waxing services in addition to makeup.
Melissa Nieli knows how to keep skin healthy, smooth, and bright. Inside Innovations in Color, she removes dirt and oil from pores with cleansing facials, and she complements facials with exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments, which reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Melissa also waxes away unwanted hair from the brows, chin, and bikini line.
Amid their salon?s abundant lights and expansive mirrors, the stylists at Hair Creations rejuvenate hairstyles and beautify bodies. Joico products accentuate cuts, styles, colorings, and other hair treatments; waxing services eliminate unwanted fuzz on all areas of the body; and natural-looking gel nails and long-lasting Shellac polish help nails regain their splendor after long nights spent clawing into bank vaults. Recently, the talented staff of Hair and Beyond has joined the Hair Creations team, where they'll be able to offer more of their friendly professional services and expanded hours.
Berthas European Spa is a warm, inviting oasis filled with skilled aestheticians who revitalize bodies with a variety of spa services. During the 75-minute foot-pampering session, guests settle into a sleek, modern pedicure station accented with lush pillows. A skilled technician treats tough feet to a soothing soak before filing unruly nails into shape and tending to clamorous cuticles. Nail specialists then give soles a sea-salt scrub with chocolate, pomegranate, or mint aromas, which have been proven to be the most effective scents for tempting away unwanted debris and dermaflaws. Finally, a foot-and-leg massage soothes achy muscles, a moisturizing foot mask hydrates thirsty feet, and nails get a fresh coat of paint. The 45-minute chocolate spa manicure closely mimics the pedicure procedure, rounding out distressed fingers and nails while moisturizing the hands that feed you with a cocoa-based phalange mask.
