Aestheticians at Spa Martier go above and beyond the call of beauty to create luxurious services that match the spa's lush surroundings. Gleaming crystal chandeliers cast a glittery glow onto nails pampered with paraffin moisturizers and 24-karat gold, and candles cast their own golden glimmer inside private treatment rooms, guiding trained hands as they perform massages with tiger clamshells or chakra-balancing sessions with real diamonds. Supervised by Dr. Amir Farzad Sheibanie, aestheticians perform 18 kinds of facials for both men and women that incorporate elements such as marine botanicals, caviar, and LED light therapy. With 3,000 feet of space, its should come as little surprise that the spa also houses a fully stocked fashion boutique and café, as well as a full-service salon where stylists can perform one of 11 holistic head treatments. Designed to relax, refresh, and replenish hair, these treatments incorporate a blend of massage, aromatherapy, and special products to prime scalps for designer haircuts, coloring treatments, and volunteer work in phrenology classrooms.
Broadway Nail & Spa's team boosts beauty with a comprehensive collection of spa services that trims, smoothes, and contours the body into its best form. Clients sink into cushy chairs for green-tea-infused pedicures, skin-softening paraffin treatments, and long-lasting gel manicures. Hot basalt stones join forces with soothing strokes during the Lava massage, helping to loosen tension in the muscles like the gentle rumbles of a brooding volcano. A private room hosts nearly 10 types of facials starring skincare salves by G.M. Collin, including the Algo treatment that diffuses redness with a cooling contour mask. Seasoned aestheticians smooth fuzzy skinscapes with gentle waxing techniques, making bodies smooth enough to easily wriggle into skintight superhero costumes.
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.
While stylists cover strands with products from American Crew, CHI, and Moroccanoil, nail technicians paint colorful polish on nails and aestheticians infuse faces with essential oils, minerals, and vitamins. These are just a couple of the ways the professionals at Rafaels Hair & Beauty Studio beautify clients. They also transform hairdos with cuts and colors or add extra length with extensions made from real human hair, as opposed to My Little Pony tails. Their massages soften tightened tissue, whereas European facials soften above-the-shoulder skin. Meanwhile, manicures and pedicures keep hands and feet well-groomed, and waxing services keep faces free of follicular sprouts.
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.
