CJ Austin snips elegant coifs for women and classic cuts for gents beneath the soft glow of her studio’s chandelier. She also readies tresses for the world by twisting and twirling ornate designs into updos for special occasions. To keep heads of hair healthy and nourished, she imbues them with Rusk products and adds hues and highlights with Rusk colors.
The Esthetic Engineer owner Tiffany Schoefield understands the stressors of the 9-to-5 world. After she ran a ghostwriting business and managed political campaigns, her career took an about-face when she realized she was more interested in slowing down to appreciate life than in speeding it up. It was then that Tiffany turned to what has become her true calling—skincare—and she now devotes herself to helping her clients find their own quiet reprieves from daily life in her inviting spa.
For more than 15 years, Tiffany has trained in some of the skincare industry’s most trusted brands, including Aveda and SkinCeuticals. The spa’s licensed aestheticians help clients improve their skin’s appearance with treatments that include microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and facials with a variety of trusted skincare brands, including Éminence Organic Skin Care and Glo Therapeutics. Among the center’s many specialties are body waxing and makeovers, during which artists apply lash extensions, tint brows, or apply full makeup. Tiffany’s philosophy that her spa is an oasis for self-care and rejuvenation stands at the forefront throughout all of her services, and her staff emphasizes making clients happy with personalized attention and treatments.
A member of Redken's Club Fifth Avenue partner program, Fusions Salon & Studio's staff members specialize in revitalizing hair and skin for ladies, gentlemen, and teens. Though they’re equally talented at rejuvenating skin, waxing away unwanted hair, and applying makeup, their ultimate passion lies in the styling and coloring of hair. Stylists seat their guests in black-leather furnishings and gaze into antique mirrors as they develop personalized color schemes to accentuate each client’s complexion, eye color, and ball and chain.
Fuzion Hair Design & Spa offers a wide variety of beautifying services in a tranquil spa atmosphere. With your choice of skin treatment, you can take advantage of their skilled staff to get the treatment best suited to your body coating. Buff away wrinkles and blemishes during a 60-minute microdermabrasion treatment ($80 value). Trained staff members exfoliate facial layers, rejuvenating skin for a cleaner and more hydrated look. All microdermabrasion treatments also include LED light therapy. During a one-hour five-layer facelift ($80 value), undernourished mugs are filled with vitamin C and pharmaceutical-grade enzyme cocktails to speed up cell turnover, shedding dead skin faster than a snowman melts when exposed to the warm embrace of a child. Layers of hyaluronic and glycolic acids douse dermises, brightening and tightening formerly frowning facades. Both treatments refresh and soften skin, leaving you fresh-faced, if not necessarily fancy-free.
