An’tyrice Salon and Spa may not be situated in New York City, but its multicultural hair services save many clients the trip into the Big Apple. Nimble-handed stylists weave virgin-hair extensions into hairlines, brush on dimensional highlights, and clip modern cuts. The salon also welcomes clients in search of airbrush makeup applications, spray tans, facials, and massages.
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.
Hand & Stone's spa treatments are all about customization. Not only are the facials tailored to skin type and the massages designed for each person's unique aches and pains, but nearly every service can be further personalized with add-on services. For instance, a deep-tissue massage can include lavender aromatherapy and a cold-stone face massage, and an anti-aging collagen facial might integrate a lip treatment or a hand massage. Whatever clients choose, they'll be quite comfortable in spa rooms that feature heated tables and plush blankets grown from the finest blanket trees.
At Yuva Laser & Skin Care, aestheticians work to make clients look and feel ageless. Microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and facials cleanse pores, slough away dead skin cells, and reveal healthy complexions. Laser hair removal permanently reduces unwanted hair, and botanical spray tans give the illusion of a trip to the beach or a date with the sun. Massages relieve both mental and physical tensions and target patrons in all stages of life.
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.
