Stylists tailor beautifying treatments to patrons’ personal styles in this full-service hair and nail salon nestled in Sunnyside in Queens. Armed with an arsenal of cuts, coloring techniques, and manageability-boosting keratin treatments, hair-handlers reform 'dos into eye-catching coifs. Strands can also get a volume or length boost with feather extensions and clip-on locks, which can double as flowing clip-on ties in a pinch. Alternatively, nail artists brighten extremities with Gelac polishes or make fingers appear longer with glue-on acrylic tips. Swedish and Thai sport-massage sessions brief enough to fit into a lunch hour unknot tense tendons, and waxing services and facials round out the assortment of offerings. Complimentary brews from the salon’s tea selection hydrate parched clients during their time slots.

After years of ducking out of pool-party invitations, Sapna Tecksingani took a stand against follicular tyrants and their armies of unwanted body hair and opened The Laser Place. Dissatisfied by other laser clinics, Tecksingani invested as much of her energy in scooping up high-tech equipment, such as the Cutera CoolGlide system or the collagen-boosting Laser Genesis, as she did in creating a professional environment where appointments start on time and staff respects confidentiality. Today, licensed and certified technicians help patients to refine appearances with an extensive array of services, including electrolysis, microdermabrasion, photofacials, and magical paintings that grow older while you stay the same age.
Tea lights atop staggered tiles emerge from the wood-paneled walls to cast a warm light on Angel Spa’s body treatment room as technicians treat bodies to nine massage styles and exfoliating body polishes in a candy store's worth of delectable scents. Those scents are coconut lime, sweet cream, chocolate delight, and champagne and roses, and they come along with a skin-smoothing host of vitamins and the undivided attention of a friendly and skilled aesthetician. Among a broad repertoire of facials, the signature Angel facial stands out for its trio of skin-firming masks that help keep any skin type looking brighter than a pomegranate filled with football floodlights. Out at the spa's nail station, technicians pamper hands and feet with high-quality polishes, Minx nails, and a luxurious signature Angel spa pedi that layers a grape-peel mask and champagne and rose butter cream to exfoliate and hydrate the skin.

His meticulous craft is on full display during Pixel Perfect skin-resurfacing treatments, which beam away sun damage, acne scars, and wrinkles in the forehead’s time-space continuum.
