Hailing from Brazil, Bela Brazil Spa's specialists keep both men and women looking their best with an array of beautifying services. Massage therapists work to soothe backs with hot-stone or deep-tissue treatments, whereas stylists sculpt the hair of women, men, and children. Aestheticians dexterously wax unwanted body hair from sensitive areas such a bikini lines, underarms, and faces, and manicurists tend to fingers with Brazilian-style manicures that focus more heavily on cuticle maintenance.
Lauded by Time Out New York for giving the "top blowouts in NYC," HauteAir describes itself as "a boutique blow dry bar" that specializes in styling. Their services include blowouts, updos, conditioning masques, and makeup artistry, in addition to haircuts. No matter what service they choose, individuals and groups will get top-notch care and attention inside the beauty hub's white and sun-filled interior.
No matter what part of your look needs a tune-up, the employees at Majestic Beauty Salon have the skill set to make it happen. Their service list spans the entire spectrum of beauty and pampering, from haircuts and manicures to massages and facials. Stylists splash hair with fresh highlights or banish it altogether with waxing or threading services. Eyelash extensions are available in a variety of lengths, some just short enough to create a fluttering frame around the eyes and others long enough to change the channel on the TV remote.
The reputations of ION Studio co-owners Marco Santini, Pasquale Ferrante, and Leonardo Manetti aren't exactly a secret. Hairdos that have appeared in Vogue, Glamour, and Elle are emblematic of decades spent establishing themselves as international visionaries. And their clientele is fiercely loyal?according to New York Magazine, "don't be surprised to spot a model getting an agency-sponsored makeover in the next chair." But that shouldn't intimidate anyone from stepping through the door. At ION Studio, the goal of these luminaries is to make upscale, runway-quality haircare available to the public. Lynden Volpe from Vanity Fair praised how the stylists were able to put guests at ease, even calling a simple introductory rinse "the most comfortable hair-washing I?ve ever experienced."
On top of this people-first philosophy is an environment-tied-for-first philosophy. Filling ION Studio's open, multi-tiered space is furniture custom-made from recycled materials and shelves brimming with eco-friendly products by companies such as Davines, Rahua, and Oribe. The building is even powered wind energy and heated by models' smoldering glances.
