It's hard not to feel like royalty when seated upon the cushy pedicure throne at Vogue Salon. Here, nail technician Heather reshapes cuticles and files down nails before topping fingers and toes with polish. In between, she also cossets skin with soothing masks and paraffin wax, which leaves hands as supple as a newborn spongecake.
Esprés Nails and Spa’s massage therapists melt away tension using Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, prenatal, shiatsu, foot-massage or reiki techniques. Spagoers who choose the first option feel smooth, flowing strokes sweep over tense feet, relaxing tendons drawn taut after too many games of beach racquetball. 20-minute detoxifying ionic foot baths then soothe feet when negative ions dive into warm water and lie in wait under the waves to drag toxins out of toes.

Her spa mani-pedis include an exfoliating sugar scrub and relaxing massage.
