  • Element Beauty Lounge
    The Village Beauty Lounge's chic and relaxing space invites clients to indulge in organic therapies that enhance their looks and uplift their spirits. A climb up the back-lit staircase is the first sign that things are taking a turn for the luxurious; once inside, guests are greeted by earth-toned walls and softly lit hanging lamps. The decor sets the mood for such uniquely pampering treatments as ice cream pedicures, citrus hot cream manicures, and curiously peanut butter-free jelly footbaths. Inside equally sleek private treatment rooms, therapists administer hot-stone and aromatherapy massages. Skincare specialists, meanwhile, render complexions radiant with hydrating and vitamin C anti-aging facials. As visitors relax, wall-mounted flat-screen TVs cancel out the big city stimuli teeming on the other side of the spa's doors.

  • Jade Day Spa
    Jade Day Spa's array of relaxing services blends the best of Western science with the balancing benefits of Eastern medicine, like a particle accelerator built according to feng shui. Licensed massage therapists trained with specialists in China to master intensive modalities that were conceived centuries ago by Asian practitioners. Acupuncture experts treat chronic pain or unhealthy habits by manipulating pressure points to improve the flow of energy through the body. Guests admire the spa's deep-red walls and Asian-themed artwork as they recline for 1 of 14 types of facials that combat aging better than wearing a watch backwards. A spacious signature treatment room contains a wooden tub for soothing foot soaks dappled with rose petals and a pair of beds for romantic couples massages.

  • Turning Heads Salon & Day Spa
    Turning Heads Salon & Day Spa has been beautifying the tresses of Harlem inhabitants with naturally derived products for almost two decades. But it wasn't until 2002 that they added on a day spa, where owner Sandy Scarborough oversees exfoliating body treatments, peels, and facials using Aveda products. In 2011, The Village Voice named it New York's best spa, praising the attentive staff and tranquil, unrushed atmosphere. Manicurists and makeup artists add color to faces and fingertips, while massage therapists smooth out muscle knots, preparing clients to end their beautification sessions with a sprint to the nearest mirror.

  • Dashing Diva
    Three levels of nail technicians (junior, senior, and master) beautify hands and feet with high-quality lotions and scrubs, Dashing Nail?s own brand of nail polishes, and their own Virtual Nails, which are nail coverings that looks like real polish. All technicians have very high sanitation standards and kick bacteria to the curb by cleaning tools with effective autoclave machines, washing ceramic pedicure sinks with a hospital-grade disinfectant, and providing clients with personal manicure kits that include a nail file and re-sealable bag.

  • Queen Jane Nail Salon
    As the owner and queen bee of Queen Jane Nail Salon, Jane Liu helps make sure her staff is on top of its nail-taming game at each of the shop’s four area locations. Inspired by ancient Eastern therapies, each salon is decorated in a manner that’s designed to invoke a sense of calm. In the Zen-like spaces, the technicians coat nails in the latest trends in beauty including OPI Axxium, UV gel polish, and french powder tips. They also soften sore feet with green-tea- and marine-mineral-infused scrubs, lotions, and foot rubs that New York Magazine matter-of-factly referred to as "nap-inducing." In addition to administering exceptional nail services, Jane’s team also performs custom massages as well as water-grass ear-candling treatments. Ancient in its roots, the specialized treatment eradicates earwax to boost mental clarity and the flow of oxygen to the brain’s inner ear gills.
