New York City Beauty Guide

In a place where there are some of the best beauty schools in the world, one can find some of the most talented stylists. Busy budget fashionistas can get their locks trimmed at one of New York City’s many walk-in beauty shops, while others will put their names on a waiting list so they can get a color and cut from one of the most famous stylists in the world. The diversity and wide array of New York City hair salons makes it easy for anyone to find their perfect match, regardless of personal style philosophy.

Stylists at the West Village’s Whittemore House take color very seriously. Patrons are escorted to the back station where their color is examined and then perfected under the natural light that shines in from above. Those “in the know” enter Ion Studio speakeasy-style through its only entrance in the back of a SoHo building. An award-winning salon, Ion Studio provides high-end styles with a focus on sustainability. Although it has a vibe of exclusivity and has served celebrities and major fashion players, Ion Studio’s prices are relatively affordable. Those who need great style on a budget get their cuts from beauty salons like PANYC, Hair Mates, and Astor Place Hair Designers, while adventurous folks allow students to practice on their tresses at a cosmetology school, such as the Aveda Institute. Many beauty salons also have makeup artists on staff, but New York City also has many cosmetologists who will make house calls (or hotel calls) to deliver their makeup and tanning services.

With so many beautification options and top-notch stylists, there really is no excuse to be less than perfectly coiffed in NYC. For convenience, find a salon that offers hairstyling, tanning, and manicures. For absolute perfection, seek out the “best of the best” in each category. Style is a personal choice, and the choices are plentiful in New York City.

The diversity and wide array of New York City hair salons makes it easy for anyone to find their perfect match, regardless of personal style philosophy.

Brazil Bronze Glow Bar owner Sally Blenkey-Tchassova knows how difficult it can be to get pale skin to cooperate. She spent her childhood in England applying self-tanning creams to her naturally ivory skin, trying every formula and label she could in her ongoing quest to find the perfect, long-lasting solution. It wasn't until she moved to New York City and found a passion for the highly competitive––and very tan––world of ballroom dancing, that she gracefully stumbled upon the concept of airbrush tanning. From that moment on, she decided to learn everything she could about airbrushing, daring to dream about a world where every pale person could instantly transform herself into a Brazilian goddess whenever she pleased. However, her first attempts with highly perfumed, commercial-grade formulas left her feeling sick, so she took it upon herself to build a better bronze, eventually perfecting a 95% organic product, as well as a sculpted application designed to add subtle definition to curves, décolletage, and the body's natural pinstriping.

According to New York magazine, Blenkey-Tchassova now divides her time between "the West Coast for celeb regulars and awards-season appointments" and the New York City salon, which has blossomed into an international operation recognized by numerous media outlets, including Allure magazine, which noted, "Her spray gun creates streak-free color that fades as evenly as the real thing." Salon technicians even travel to bring the airbrush experience to homes, offices, or subterranean doomsday bunkers, and further boost clients' self-confidence by planning flirty boudoir photo sessions.

To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, “She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.”

Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand’s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.

When Dr. Ritu Saini took the reins of NY Medical Skin Solutions from her mentor—Dr. Perry Robins—she never doubted the decision to remain true to the center’s original vision. The board-certified dermatologist and her team value the health of their patients’ skin above all else. As a result, they take care to educate every visitor as they scan for signs of skin cancer, remove worrisome lesions using the innovative MOHs micrographic surgical procedure, and even treat conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Dr. Saini also incorporated a medispa, and our spa special, Triple Radiance Facials.

For a well-rounded approach to patients’ well-being, Dr. Saini and her assistants also perform a number of cosmetic procedures, which incorporate cutting-edge dermatological technology. A Q-switched ruby cosmetic laser system helps erase everything from pigmented lesions to unwanted tattoos. Omnilux blue and red light therapy treats acne scars. The Vbeam Perfecta laser conceals broken blood vessels, port wine stains, and other vascular conditions. And A CoolGlide Vantage Nd:YAG laser system zaps the follicles of unwanted stubble across the torso, limbs, and face. For a thoroughly rejuvenating treatment, the center also uses Ultherapy technology, triggering collagen production with precisely directed ultrasound waves. When combined with medical screenings, these sorts of cosmetic procedures can imbue patients with a renewed sense of confidence in their appearance as well as their health.

At eShave, experts specialize in men's shaving and grooming products that help customers look and feel good with natural, luxurious, and paraben-free products. eShave was founded by Danielle Malka, who first made inroads into the shaving business when she created a successful program to educate barbers in the UK. As the barbers' trade tips trickled down to consumers, her renown grew, and in 1996, she founded eShave to enhance the shaving experience through elegant razors, kits, and shaving creams devoid of the porcupine quills often found in competitors' products. Danielle still designs eShave's hand-sculpted, aesthetically unique razors, badger brushes, and shave stands, many of which have been featured in dozens of local and national health and lifestyle magazines.

At eShave's retail outlets, trained trimmers specialize in transforming masculine mugs from bushy to groomed with their signature barber services. Using the company's own products, its signature shaves begin with a relaxing hot-towel preparation and facial oil massage to open up the pores, followed by a hot lather to moisten and prepare skin for a close, comfortable shave or clever escape from pursuers. After coolly slicing bristles with a straight razor, a barber neatly wipes away all remaining evidence of his work and provides an aftershave moisturizer to prevent irritation and soothe nude jaws.

Former sculptor David Groshen knows how to bring a creative vision to physical fruition. He now applies the skills and attention to detail he developed while molding clay to his current occupation of styling hair. While rooted in this work ethos, his signature approach to salon services also revolves around client empowerment⎯educating and collaborating with his customers to achieve the best possible style. David has articulated his philosophy not only as a stylist at and owner of award-winning New York salons (beginning in 1991 with Salon East in Manhattan), but also as a hair-advice columnist and contributor to 101 Hairstyles and other industry magazines. He earned his respected spot in the realm of haircare through a stint as a regular stylist and infrequent eye roller on the popular television show Ambush Makeover. Not one to let the cameras change him, he gives back by participating in Hope Cuts, a charity for which upscale hairstylists donate their talents to raise awareness about cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other life-threatening diseases.

Though Major Model Management and celebrity clients frequently seek out David's expertise, he still finds time to develop at-home maintenance routines for his regular customers. His hard work has culminated in his 7 Methods series of tutorials, which includes “7 Methods for Great Perms” and “7 Methods for Your Perfect Wedding.”

“My stomach actually grumbled several times during the treatment,” a Time Out New York reporter confessed after indulging in the “whirl of euphoric bliss” that is the Strawberry Sweet Cheeks facial. There’s little cause for embarrassment if guests’ stomachs interrupt—using ingredients including poppy seeds, mango, and lime (all blended by Éminence), the aestheticians at White Tea Med Spa are well aware of their appetite-inducing properties. Each treatment on the boutique spa's menu is designed to mimic the healing, relaxing effects of white tea without the time and expense of filling a bathtub with it, and after each treatment, guests are rewarded for their stomach’s patience with a cup of white tea itself served in an English-style tea house.

In addition to nine types of facials, the spa offers higher-tech treatments, such as VelaShape body-contouring procedures. Perched on the border between Chelsea and the West Village, White Tea has often found itself at the forefront of beauty trends—its new services have been tested and demonstrated in the pages of OK! Weekly and The Tyra Banks Show, among other outlets.
