For more than 20 years, the friendly nail experts at Nails by Lois's tranquil spa have kept paws well groomed with custom nail services. A selection of 10 spa mani-pedis, named for delicious treats including margaritas and chocolate truffles, infuses the air with indulgent aromas and the skin with nourishing treatments such as heel-smoothing sea serums. Refreshed nails can then be crowned with a protective coat of UV gel or acrylic tips, which are much more realistic than tips made from tasty Bugles. Additionally, the nail salon's menu offers a range of aesthetic services that includes four styles of massage modalities, facials, full-body waxing, and application of permanent makeup.
Self Image Salon, in business since 1978, enhances their clients’ appearances inside the historic Triangle building, built in 1892. Hairstyling and color services prepare tresses for special events, job interviews, or sneaking onto the set of the evening news. Thermal straightening treatments tame frizz. The salon's stylists also groom eyebrows into flattering arches or rotate them a counter turn to make eyes parenthetical.
Swirls and Twirls is a new self-serve frozen yogurt shop unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. The unique and vibrant space was designed to encourage creativity. It is the ultimate healthy indulgence. With 16 premium flavors on tap and more than 40 toppings to choose from, the possibilities are endless.
Though the friendly master barbers at The Art of Cut Hair Salon specialize in men's services such as razor fades and soothing hot-towel shaves, they also nourish women's hair with keratin treatments and Moroccanoil masks. The clean, simply decorated salon welcomes guests and indoor skaters with hardwood floors, sleek black-leather sofas, and floor-length mirrors trimmed with dark wood.
Although The Goddess Spa resides inside Grand Central Hair Salon, its staff moves beyond coifs to address a whole different spectrum of cosmetic concerns. The aestheticians help rejuvenate skin using everything from ultrasound therapy to specialized anti-aging serums. These treatments aim to conceal imperfections typically caused by acne scars, dead skin cells, and chain-mail pillowcases. Peels gently resurface the topmost epidermal layers without abrasive acids, and the body wraps' seaweed-based herbal gel leaves skin feeling soft and nourished.
Phountain Health was founded on the theory that staying healthy involves balancing the body's pH levels. In addition to bottling pH-balancing alkaline water—avilable for demonstration and soon to be available via delivery—Phountain Health hosts infrared-sauna sessions, which aim to improve circulation and oust toxins, as do the spa's ionic detoxifying footbaths. The business' communal approach can also be seen in hot-yoga classes, where clients work out together rather than sit alone on the couch sipping battery acid.
