Cindy Barshop may have a familiar face. She gained reality-TV fame as a cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, but she found success much earlier when the Madison Avenue spa she founded more than 10 years ago grew into a hair-removal brand known throughout the country. Completely Bare’s waxing specialists dab bikini lines with the shop’s proprietary blend of ouch-less wax, which adheres to hair instead of skin to avoid the painful pull that often accompanies a waxing session. The blend is hypoallergenic and does not cause acne, which makes it ideal for depilating sensitive skin and touchy bodily zones. Routine waxing sessions add extra sparkle with the salon’s vajazzling service, which bedecks newly hair-free spots with up to 70 Swarovski crystals arranged into such shapes as hearts, stars, peace signs, and MPAA ratings. The spa specialists also migrate beyond the below-the-belt area to polish the rest of the body with facials, laser hair removal, spray tanning, and teeth whitening.
Salon Da Noi's spa treatments soothe the human surface area, energizing and relaxing the body simultaneously.

Ascend to level two of luxurious skin smoothing with the signature facial, a completely customized facial treatment personalized to the every need of your unique facescape—deep cleaning, exfoliating, and bulldozing unauthorized road signs of aging as needed. For a therapeutic trip down spa lane, opt for the massage combo and enjoy the soothing and smoothing effects of a 55-minute Swedish massage. Da Noi's therapists use a combination of classic flowing massage strokes, kneading, rubbing, and pure essential-oils or creams to relieve tension and stress in mind, body, and credit rating.
