The staff members at The Magical Touch Salon & Day Spa separate clients from the stresses of the outside world with a shield of relaxing treatments, including massages, facials, and nail services. Green bamboo, a yellow wall, and orange pendant lamps lend a cheerful vibe to the reception area, putting clients at ease before they head to a waxing or laser hair-removal session to prep for beach time, or to a sugar-scrub session that brightens skin and lures ponies. Inside the salon area, stylists cut and color hair or smooth frizz with Brazilian keratin treatments, and nail technicians dip hands and feet in warm paraffin before applying coats of OPI polish.
Brimming with colorful bolts of fabric, carefully looped skeins of yarn, and rows of sewing provisions, Save A Thon Stores have been supplying New Yorkers with quality crafting necessities since 1973. With fabrics ranging from basic denim to upscale jacquard upholstery cloth from around the world, the shop showcases a range of patterned designs that can be crafted into cozy quilts or a signal to a passing ship that it would have looked better in plaid. Coils of lace ribbons and tubs of colorful beads add a decorative finishing touch to projects, which can be undertaken at home or under the tutelage of the shop's expert crafters during regular sewing classes, while upholstery classes teach students upholstery basics. The teachers are also experts in the Wilton method of cake decorating and can help students artfully embellish cakes and cupcakes with fondant, tiny decorations, and tiny brides and grooms on a dessert destination wedding.
