Inside the full-service salon and spa, spare, modern decor reflects the calm, tranquil atmosphere befitting of an urban retreat. Vases cascading with flowers splash private treatment rooms with natural flair while professionals whisk away stress with custom facials and massages. On the salon floor, stylists recruit premium products—such as Swiss skincare line Mila d'Opiz, Moroccanoil hair products, and Goldwell and Majirel color treatments—to leave skin and hair feeling more refreshed and hydrated than a rain cloud getting a massage. Experienced cosmetologists and a choice of hard or soft wax minimize the pain of removing unwanted body hair.
The stylists at FancyFaceArtistry's sister salon Blink Beauty NYC look after every hair on their clients’ heads—and the ones in their eyes, for that matter. Stylists use relaxer treatments, deep-conditioning sessions, and coloring services to gift their clients with styles that mirror their personality or favorite kind of fireworks. During eyelash-extension services, trained technicians affix full strands of faux lashes onto real ones for a comfortable and dramatic new look. The staff can also shape eyebrows for an alluring and expressive arch.
The bright-white, naturally lit interior of Eiji Kiyora Salon provides a tranquil backdrop for spa services designed to revitalize body and soul. Driven by the theory that peace within leads to a beautiful exterior, beauty experts outfit the salon with fresh flowers, administer complimentary head massages, and station bottles of Nano Amino, Sachajuan, and Prejume products far enough away to keep them from elbowing one another.
Brandishing an array of L'Oreal Professional products, head stylist Isaac and the team of scissor wielders at Isaac Salon snip and style hair until it radiates outward in face-flattering forms. In the hands of a master-level follicle fashioner, manes shed unwanted strands and emerge as sleek and clean as a recently laundered seal. Stylists varnish lackluster locks with a thorough gloss treatment, creating a sun-catching sheen to replace green reflective patches. A single-process root touch-up can douse hair parts with strand-matching luster or a half head of highlighted tresses can outline scalp contours with luminous strands. A full head of highlights helps heads relive high-school days of neon-yellow annotations, as a conditioning treatment soaks into scalps to soothe highlighted hairs, calming overwrought roots and reuniting long-lost split ends.
Elite Full Spa's acne facial always improves skin clarity, combats blemishes, and minimizes inflammation—but never in exactly the same way. The spa specializes in custom blended treatments, crafted from essential oils and plant extracts to suit each client's skin type. This means no formula is sacred. The team can just as easily tweak the facial's acne-medicated cleanser or its sulfur mask to get the best results. Similarly, they can customize one of their other skincare services, from the European-style facial to the cranberry and pomegranate facial with a complimentary tiny umbrella.
Their spa's salon services are equally tailored to the recipient, regardless of whether stylists are snipping locks into custom shapes or stripping away unwanted stubble with waxing and threading. And to round out the service menu, manicures and pedicures offer options ranging from traditional and shellac polishes to artificial silk wrap nails, a more flexible, natural-looking take on traditional acrylics.
Styling can be hard on hair, which is why the stylists at Excel Hair Salon only use the finest professional products. To keep hair healthy, they trust in brands like Pureology, which eschews sulfates and desert sand from its list of ingredients to keep hair from drying out. Likewise, Matrix Bioloage adds shine and protects hair with infusions of botanical extracts. In the hands of Excel’s skilled stylists, these products do their magic during the salon’s signature cuts, straightenings, and color services. In addition to their passion for keeping hair looking good, stylists also try to work with their clients’ needs: the salon’s doors stay open seven days a week, including evening and weekend hours.
