Pamper Me Salon & Spa's troupe of stylists and aestheticians bring an intuitive sense of color, shape, and texture to their beautifying work. A full bikini wax uproots unwanted bristle without razor burn or resulting stubble, creating a sleek swimsuit contour in time for beach season or No Pants Friday at the office. Those looking to maintain their face frames can groom and revivify locks with a cut and color. Head feathers are snipped and shaped, matched with a single-process color from root to tip, then styled and blown dry in their gorgeous new incarnation. All trimming and depilation is performed in a freshly renovated studio, bright and airy with pale tiling, wooden accents, and curtains woven from fairy dresses.
Starting when it opened in 1994, Rani Spas' image specialists have been polishing impressions through waxing, facials, massage, hairstyling, and mani-pedi services. The expert aestheticians enhance skin with a medley of visage-rejuvenating treatments, including the smoothing crystal collagen facial and the Synergie peel, which combines a powerful chemical peel with microdermabrasion to repair skin damaged from acne, sun exposure, and professional-apple-bobbing careers. The spa's stylists also tend to coifs with strand transformations ranging from cuts and updos to highlights and moisturizing treatments, and fuzz fields are left clean and sleek through gentle waxing and traditional threading methods.
Pinang Malaysian Restaurant's behemoth menu packs a smorgasbord of eats that spans from India to Malaysia. The roti-canai starter preps bellies and fanny packs for main courses with a homemade Indian pancake dunked in curry-chicken sauce ($3). Shredded-mango entrees strike a sweet chord alongside the bass notes of tofu ($9), chicken, beef ($12.50 each), shrimp, or fish ($13 each), each steeped in a spicy sauce. Diners can bury forks or priceless family heirlooms in the num-yee duck casserole's savory layers, lined with bean paste, ginger, and scallions ($9.50). Adventurous eaters boldly go mouth first into the chicken or beef peppercorn sizzling platter that defies diners with a fiery brown sauce ($11).
Licensed technicians and cosmetologists at Forest Hills Health Center shepherd clients toward greater holistic health with an inside-out approach to beauty. Trained technicians cleanse bodies with colon hydrotherapy, their specialty service, performed in private treatment rooms. After the body is purified, skin stops swearing and begins to glow as technicians administer B. Kamins pharmaceutical-grade products during facials.
The stylists at Nails by Tami view each fingernail and toenail as a work of art. That means that they lavish loving attention on hands and feet as they work, creating one-of-a-kind nail designs that match their guests' personalities. Those designs range from perfectly polished nails embellished with glittering gems to sleekly sculpted acrylics with pointed tips and tribal designs. Aestheticians also pamper the rest of the body with relaxing massages and purifying facials. And with its rose-colored walls and plush white pedicure chairs, the spa's interior looks almost as pretty as its clients feel when they leave their appointments.
At First Impressions, aestheticians spruce up faces, relax backs, and pamper nails in 90-minute mini spa excursions. Technicians rub hands and feet with lavender- or honey-infused exfoliating scrubs, polishing skin to a healthy glow before coating nails in gel or Shellac polish, whose persistent grip clings to talons for up to two weeks, much like a shy toddler clutching a store mannequin’s leg. Toes can stretch out and luxuriate in a complimentary paraffin treatment, and faces emerge looking fresh and youthful after a treatment using all-natural products.
