Namaste Wellness Spa nourishes soul containers with attentive, customized service and skin-pampering Dermalogica salves. After sweeping future freshened faces into individual treatment rooms, skin swamis query clients to suss out any necessary adjustments and answer questions about the procedure, its impact on different skin types, and the infield fly rule. A microdermabrasion facial exfoliates flesh masks with a spray of fine crystals, reducing the appearance of fine lines, sun damage, and B-list celebrity guest stars. Alternatively, a chemical peel's lactic acid lathes away superficial layers of skin, achieving a similarly scrubbed-clean glow. Visages prone to breakouts or oiliness can also opt for the platinum spa facial, which soothes complex skin types before pampering necks, shoulders, and neglected second heads with a massage. Cap off beautifying treatments with a trip to the relaxation room, where silken cushions caress newly softened skin as mouths sup on cookies and tea.
For more than 25 years, the stylists of Design Masters Hair Salon have helped clients obtain classic and trendy 'dos by beginning each appointment with an in-depth consultation. These beauty talks are then followed by customized haircare services, from Awapuhi conditioning treatments and foil highlights to hair dyeing with ammonia-free color. Clients are also beautified with mani-pedis, aromatherapy massages, and waxing services.
Dr. Joyce Guirand and her staff of technicians at Aesthetic Medical Care of New York perform an array of professional cosmetic procedures for faces and bodies. The menu of services includes Botox injections, facial chemical peels designed to target fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring, and i-Lipo body shaping, a non-invasive treatment during which technicians target cellulite with low-level lasers
Like the offspring of a flamingo and a zebra, Glitz & Glamor is black, white, and pink all over. Its vibrant shades surround tweens during two-hour parties. At the behest of tiara-crowned birthday girls, five guests gather inside a VIP party suite. They don pink bathrobes before noshing on pizza and singing karaoke alongside a big-screen TV. When stylists aren't hosting celebrations, they operate the establishment as a traditional salon and spa. During spa mani-pedis and chocolate deluxe facials, they also give mothers and daughters a chance to bond as well as two people hugging in a pool of super glue.
At Aurora Nail & Skin Salon, the beauty experts aim to maintain a comfortable environment by bolstering each service with friendly conversation. As nail techs lay hot stones onto feet or gently dab OPI polish onto nails, they swap stories with their clients and mimic the experience of having nails done by a good friend. Dermalogica products nurture and heal facial skin, and gentle Jane Iredale makeup products accent lips, eyes, and vestigial rhino horns.
Prior to opening her own studio, Couture Facials, licensed aesthetician Jessica hopped from the East Coast across the pond to Italy and Paris on a quest for the finest European skincare products. She returned to the United States and recruited a staff of beauty professionals to make use of her findings during a slew of skincare services. Each of the staff members is well-trained to perform a number of services, from exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments to anti-aging facials. Some treatments, such as the Fully Loaded facial, include a relaxing massage; others require the spa’s licensed massage therapists to step in and exclusively cater to tense muscles during deep-tissue, Swedish, and lava-stone massages. Though Couture Facials offers a relaxing environment to unwind, clients can also request at-home services, which save them the trouble of traveling or overcoming their fears of being attacked by a cloud.
