With a workspace that spans 13,000 square feet and two stories, Lawrence SpaRex has plenty of room to pamper its clients privately and comfortably. Tucked away from all the nail treatments, haircuts, and massages, the facility’s dry sauna relaxes visitors with infrared panels that warm the body like natural sunlight without the potential damaging effects of UV rays. Layers of seaweed clay coat the walls not only in the sauna but also throughout the facility, providing a healthy alternative to paint and a more practical alternative to silly string.
Spa treatments are sometimes considered luxuries, but Necessities Day Spa & Salon treats them as essential services that provide much-needed relaxation. Nestled in The Shoppes at Hamilton, the spa hosts a team of experts in haircare, aesthetics, massage, and waxing. For people who return to enjoy the spa’s services over multiple trips, Necessities provides membership packages that include access to a VIP lounge, use of robes and slippers, and the ability to hear a host of trumpets playing whenever they walk into a room.
If Guys & Dolls Hair Salon & Spa has a homey feel, it's probably because the space that now brims with scissors, haircare solutions, and nail polish was until the 1970s a cozy home lined with family portraits and a checklist of uncles banned from family reunions. Today, stylists Vicki Berrien and Heather Guagliardo are at the reins, showcasing their decades of experience styling hair, cleansing skin with facials, and accentuating eyes with eyelash extensions.
The aestheticians at Blu Salon are dedicated to pampering and treating besieged skin in an eclectic and soothing environment, free of elitist attitudes and imported cockatoos. Your appointment will start with a skin consultation to determine which of the six facial formulas best suits your pore preferences. Blu's signature facial service, the Blu Essential Facial ($100), is an hour-long face freshener that includes basic cleansing, balancing, exfoliation, European-style massage, and skin-specific hydration. The 60-minute Anti-Aging Facial ($120) replenishes moisture and hydration lost to years of sunny days and skies with scattered clouds. Well-mannered men with unruly razors can soothe sensitive skin and irritation with the Gentleman's Facial ($90, 45 minutes). The blow-dry ($40+) that follows your countenance cleansing is a full-fledged hair helper that includes a shampoo, salon styling, hand exfoliation, and head-and-neck massage.
