When Angel Tips opened the doors to its single Long Island store in 1996, it had a simple premise: to offer professional nail, waxing, and beauty services at an affordable price. Although the company has expanded to more than 60 locations across New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut since then, their focus on professionalism remains the same. They even require all of their licensed professionals to hone their skills at a specialized training center in Connecticut.
Though Angel Tips expertly performs waxing services and installs eyelash extensions, their specialty lies in nail care. Their technicians perform traditional, gel, and acrylic manicures, as well as specialty pedicures with paraffin and hot stone massages. Cleanliness, like professionalism and affordability, is a top priority; all locations use sanitized tools, disposable files and buffer pads, and pedicure chairs that have fully outgrown their teenage grunge phases.
Owned and operated by a licensed massage therapist, Manual On Myo Aroma Spa incorporates both Eastern holistic and Western medical schools of thought into its treatments and services, such as acupuncture and reflexology. The spa's custom massages and aromatherapy sessions rely on certified-pure therapeutic-grade essential oil, which has been shown to boost the immune system and eradicate stress. Aesthetic services, such as mani-pedis, facials, and waxing, are also available.

At Advanced Dermatology Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, a team of dermatologists featured in magazines such as Glamour and Men's Fitness oversee an array of treatments. Together, they alleviate skin conditions, such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Alternatively, they beautify skin with lasers, tightening sagging areas or removing unwanted hair. Their cosmetic surgeries, meanwhile, tweak physiques while maintaining a natural look.
Patricia of Patricia’s Brazilian Waxing hails from Southern Brazil, where she built up a reputation as a deft waxing technician. That reputation followed her to New York, where she and her staff offer waxing for men and women in a clean environment with disposable materials and hard waxes. Their service list runs the gamut from eyebrows to toes, and they wax unwanted hair from the underarms, buttocks, back, bikini line, and abdomen.
