Perfection in one’s art can be extremely difficulty to achieve. But that doesn't stop the stylists at Shear Perfection by Kristen from trying. As clients sit at hair stations inside the cozy boutique studio, they use scissors, dyes, and straighteners to create styles that best suit each of their guests. As a full-service salon, Shear Perfection also readies brides for their big day with full wedding packages that include styling, a continental breakfast, and tips on how to avoid getting rice stuck to your face.
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.
Drawing from her family's catalog of natural wax recipes, the proprietor of Girl from Ipanema Spa evicts fuzz with homemade waxes designed to play nice with sensitive skin. The spa's aestheticians also rejuvenate visages with facials that rely on either organic ingredients or high-tech methods, as in the photofacial, which skips PPx pulsed light across skin ponds to break up rosacea, sun damage, and other imperfections. Amidst green-tea-hued walls, exfoliating sea salts and essential oils remove dry skin and prepare bodies for airbrush tanning. Visitors can cop a full range of Éminence handmade organic skincare products to continue their bodycare at home or on the giant hamster wheels they've agreed to live on for science.
Looking good and feeling good go hand in hand at Beauty and Wellness Center, a beauty and fitness studio with ornate tile floors and sunny yellow walls. Once guests step through the center's doors, they are greeted by aestheticians who specialize in shaping eyebrows, purifying skin with facials, and grooming fingernails, toenails, or Edward Scissorhands-style blades. There are resident massage therapists, too, who dissolve muscle tension with custom massages. Guests can also take an active role in their own wellness by attending the center's fitness classes, which include muscle-toning workouts, restorative yoga sessions, and stress-reducing meditation classes.
