From within Queens' Club Fitness, Infinity Spa Salon strikes an effective balance between natural skincare and advanced aesthetic treatments. Located a short distance from New York City, aestheticians clear and brighten complexions with seven types of facials infused with vitamin C and hydroquinone-free lightening ingredients, and they also use the exfoliating powers of mechanical microdermabrasion. Unwanted hairs can be effortlessly removed using an all-natural, beeswax-infused formula from GiGi or the advanced technology of an Alma Soprano XL laser, which permanently removes hair from any skin type including ghosts' see-through complexions. In massage treatment rooms, therapists rely on 10 different modalities, including the ancient techniques of Thai massage and shiatsu, to release tight muscles and improve circulation.
Infinity's focus on harmony is also apparent in the salon and spa's interior design, which melds contemporary decor with natural earth elements, such as bamboo plants and warm brown walls.
Across the spectrum of hair, body, and skin treatments offered at Bon-Bon Hair Salon and Spa, is a uniting theme of personalized attention. The practitioners pride themselves on their ability to make each client feel like they're the only person in the world, regardless of whether they're getting a facial with seaweed and Vitamin C, a body scrub with lavender and marine salts, or a calming massage with aromatherapy. The hairstylists, who've been featured in publications such as Us Weekly, lavish the same attention on clients, taking into account each one's features before fashioning a haircut or adding color to the mix. The spa also excels in just-for-men services such as haircuts and beard trims, but whatever the treatment, the staff's goal is to make the experience as enjoyable as the results are beautiful.
You might not find J’aime Day Spa and Salon right away, given its second floor location on Madison Avenue in Midtown East. But once you’ve found your way up the stairs and above the street-level Cuban restaurant, this inviting, serene space truly pays off. Floor to ceiling windows look out over the avenue, letting in loads of natural light for the small work stations that are pushed up close to the glass. Several soft blue couches are perfect for relaxing before a manicure, facial treatment, or head to one of the spare white rooms in the back for more intimate waxing and massage sessions. Each facet of the long salon is meant to pamper and revitalize customers, while shelves of take-home products near the register mean guests can enjoy spa-level treatments right at home.
Lali Lali Salon customers book appointments online to nab an afternoon, evening, or Saturday visit to revivify strands at their convenience. As they arrive, sunlight careens into the long, spacious salon, which is punctuated with colossal, playful, overgrown bouquets. The lush bursts of chlorophyll spray up from the floor, fan out from the walls, and hang from the ceilings, contrasting with modern black furniture cushioned with flower smells. Massive windowpanes paint crosshatched silhouettes on a vintage green chaise lounge and mock bearskin rug. Fittingly for such a carefully designed space, Lali Lali doubles as a gallery, with a focus on photography that captures New York's bustling fashion scene.
This Harlem nail spa offers manicures and pedicures to professional men and women. Shellac manicures, French manicures, silk wrap repairs and paraffin treatments are all performed by an amiable staff of nail technicians. Polished Fingertips also offers a color change service, so you can clean up your nails between appointments, while makeup, waxing and massage treatments keep the rest of the body revitalized as well. The small space is colored in splashy blues, with floor to ceiling windows that look out onto a lively stretch of Frederick Douglas Boulevard. A collection of silver jewelry is also for sale, and the spa can be booked for private events.
Whirlpool foot baths, glasses of champagne, and hot river stones well up around clients at Village Nails & Spa, blocking out the stressors of the external world. Paraffin wax relaxes the hands' tendons before manicurists buff away dead skin and primp nails with a galaxy of multi-colored OPI polishes, and Swedish massages release stiffness over the rest of the body with deft, gliding strokes. The staff extricates unwanted hair with PFB Vanish waxes, which quiets the discomfort associated with waxing with a combination of hydrating ingredients and a light anesthetic.
