An’tyrice Salon and Spa was established in April 2009 by Angelline Smalls. Angelline ventured out from under the tutelage of Warren Triccomi, a legend in the world of celebrity hair styling and color, to open the only high end salon and spa in Poughkeepsie, New York.
Owner Jacqueline and her staff of estheticians slather organic products onto clients’ faces during facials to help alleviate rosacea, sop up excess oil, or hydrate dry patches. They also scrub away dead skin cells on bodies with raw sugar or extra-fine sandpaper, and bestow eyelashes with extra length using semi-permanent lash extensions.
Licensed massage therapist and skincare expert Irina Ionina had always dreamed of running her own spa where she can heal others while fostering relaxation and well-being. Having opened Ganesha Spa, she’s achieved that goal, and now spends her days practicing eight modalities of massage, such as shiatsu and hot stone, to relieve muscle tension and alleviate stress. She also rejuvenates skin with anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, micro-needling, and nonsurgical face-lifts, and hosts kundalini mediation classes each Monday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The professionals at Bellava MedAesthetics & Spa perform beauty services in a chic, tranquil environment. During the 30-minute HydraFacial treatment, a technician passes over the skin with a specially designed hydradermabrasion wand. As the scepter delivers a combination of hyaluronic-acid serum and oxygen to soften tissue and cleanse the pores, its patented spiral tip exfoliates the skin and vacuums up dead cells. Simultaneously, infusions of oxygen, antioxidants, and moisturizer help diminish the appearance of fine lines, acne, and prune stains for a younger, healthier look.
The Haven Spa's aestheticians pamper men, women, and teens with customized skin treatments. Patrons can relax and sip tea in harmony with new acquaintances. In the evenings, aestheticians transform the spa into a festive refuge for groups of friends with spa parties.
