JD Nail Salon provides a relaxing, spa-like sanctuary where hard-working fingers and toes can enjoy some pampering nail services from the hands of certified nail techs. As the mani-pedi begins, feet blow bubbles in the mini hot tubs beneath the pedicure thrones and nails get the shaping and filing they've deserved since before you were born. A polish application comes next, then it's off to the manicure station, where soaking, clipping, and buffing prettifies dainty fingertips, after which polish is expertly applied.

Maryam Rahimi's passion for nature—and more specifically, plants—shines through in her skincare treatments, which often incorporate vegan extracts and botanicals. The medical aesthetician and president of Lily Dermal Care uses these natural ingredients to great effect, clearing away acne, hyperpigmentation, and dried-out warpaint during facials and peels. Of course, it helps that she can draw on 15 years of experience in the beauty industry to craft her healthy, holistic remedies.

In her well-appointed offices, she can assist with prenatal care and deliver newborns as safely as a stork equipped with a seatbelt and airbag. She also provides family-planning services and helms laser surgeries. For international patients’ convenience, Dr. Jahan can speak in Bengali, Hindi, Persian, Spanish, and Urdu during appointments.
With more than two decades of experience in the entertainment, fashion, and bridal industries, Gilda specializes in European-style precision haircuts and camouflage makeup for all skin types. In order to continually improve her craft, Gilda attends international trainings taught by elite beauty educators, and keeps her eyes peeled for cutting-edge beauty trends. Before appointments, Gilda and her staff meet with clients to discuss their aesthetic aspirations and facial features before collaborating on a plan of attack, whether it be a new hair color, makeup application, or texture alteration, such as Japanese straightening or permanent waves. Waxing and threading round out the menu of salon services, which clients can enjoy while sipping complimentary mugs of coffee or glasses of wine. For those who cannot make it into the salon, Gilda still makes house calls to beautify brides-to-be and partygoers.
The muscle tutors at Fitness Together will work with you to determine your goals (drop pounds, run a marathon, get strong enough to finally confront Douglas) and develop a customized workout plan designed to help you reach your true fitness potential. They’ll supervise your squats, offer nutritional advice, and push you until you see results. Individualized attention means it’s all about you—your trainer can point out when you’re doing a stretch incorrectly, help you tone the trouble zones, and push you to keep going when you’d otherwise quit or become distracted by the fragile beauty of a passing hummingbird.
