Cindy Barshop may have a familiar face. She gained reality-TV fame as a cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, but she found success much earlier when the Madison Avenue spa she founded more than 10 years ago grew into a hair-removal brand known throughout the country. Completely Bare’s waxing specialists dab bikini lines with the shop’s proprietary blend of ouch-less wax, which adheres to hair instead of skin to avoid the painful pull that often accompanies a waxing session. The blend is hypoallergenic and does not cause acne, which makes it ideal for depilating sensitive skin and touchy bodily zones. Routine waxing sessions add extra sparkle with the salon’s vajazzling service, which bedecks newly hair-free spots with up to 70 Swarovski crystals arranged into such shapes as hearts, stars, peace signs, and MPAA ratings. The spa specialists also migrate beyond the below-the-belt area to polish the rest of the body with facials, laser hair removal, spray tanning, and teeth whitening.

Well-being gets a well-rounded boost from Forever Young Sport Spa's more than 25 Pilates and yoga instructors, licensed massage therapists, aestheticians, and personal trainers, all of whom work together to calm bodies and minds with in-home and studio spa services. Skilled hands hush whining necks and shoulders with eight modalities of massage, including aromatherapy with eucalyptus, peppermint, and rosemary oils and a shiatsu technique that stimulates the body's meridians with pressure and acupuncture. Custom facials punch away at pore-clogging dirt and debris, and sauna wraps help remove toxins and boost metabolism. Taught by nationally certified instructors, Pilates and yoga group classes include beginner and intermediate reformer, cardio boot camp reformer, advanced reformer, and studio mat classes. The spa's spacious studio complements the flowing movements with simple designs in pale, earthy tones. Additional personal-training sessions eliminate the need to paint muscles on otherwise nice T-shirts.

Inside Antoinette Boudoir Spa's private treatment quarters, gilded drapes and plush beds furnish privacy and comfort for holistic therapies. Owner Clara Raykin styled the spa to resemble Marie Antoinette's castle, outfitting chambers with royal décor such as oil portraits, floor-to-ceiling mirrors, and chairs carved to accommodate modern petticoats. "You feel like you're in a spa in Paris here," said a reporter for Fox 5. "It's like a French powder room." The royal theme extends to the services, which aim to rejuvenate and pamper clients with the highest-quality products and technologies. In addition to standard treatments including massages and body wraps, the spa offers new therapies such as colonic hydrotherapy, ionic foot detox treatments, and ear candling. Employing organic products and years of experience, aesthetic professionals slough away dead skin cells with body scrubs and soften cellulite deposits with body wraps. Detox and general spa packages are available for singles and couples.

From Cameron Diaz to Drew Barrymore, Stella Akilova is sought after for her waxing prowess. When she decided to leave her post at the posh Bliss Spa in favor of opening her own establishment, her clients flocked to her new digs at TQ Spa by the dozens. There, Akilova splurges on top-of-the-line products such as lavender-infused wax and plant-based Decl?or skincare serums. She pairs them with seaweed extracts and anti-inflammatory agents in a retinue of facials that brighten the skin and evict blemishes. TQ also has a talented staff of massage therapists that soothes clients' bodies with Swedish and deep-tissue massages and brings about a whole-body glow with scrubs and self-tanning milks. Rounding out Akilova's luxurious menu is a buffet of mani-pedi treatments that incorporates hot stones and reflexology to reward fingers and toes for their nightly puppet performances.
