Jean Madeline Aveda Institute beautifies hair and bodies with a wide array of pampering services while preparing tomorrow's stylists to forge the fashion frontier. Wielding an arsenal of contemporary knowledge and organic Aveda products, these well-educated cosmetologists-in-training can sculpt over-tussled manes into timeless coiffeurs ($16) or snip a couple inches off to avoid sweeping stray candy wrappers across the floor with every step ($12). An aromatherapy wrap can relax away inner city stressors by massaging in a choice of scented oils ($35). Those whose facial planes have dulled with the sandpapering of time will enjoy the customized facial, where a torso massage is combined with a mix of products to treat specific skin types until countenances are as radiant as a cherub in a spotlight ($33). Jean Madeline Aveda Institute also offers waxing services to lay bare lips ($8), brows ($11), underarms ($20), dorsal fins, and more.
NYW Beauty Island's technicians wage a campaign of beauty and relaxation with cosmetic technology. They operate body-contouring equipment and pamper clients with traditional facials that leave mugs glowing, like neon coffee. Their diverse treatment catalog includes body wraps, LED facial rejuvenation, and waxing. They even make waiting for appointments a relaxing experience by furnishing the lounge with densely cushioned, mocha-colored couches, an elegant rug, candles, and a wide range of verdant plants.
Lotus Hair Design's adept stylists smooth frizzy follicles and fashion progressive hairstyles with vegan and organic products. The deep-conditioning treatment begins with a ritual scalp and shoulder massage, which soothes stressed craniums and clavicles via repetitious kneading and finger-whispered Gregorian chants. Next, tress technicians envelop limp locks with organic keratin oil to infuse skull forests with sustainable style before a dryer dome caps crowns for 20 minutes. Then, an application of sulfate-free Pravana keratin shampoo and conditioner spruces hair to shine, enabling the savvy beautician to snip and style cleansed head nests into trend-setting topiaries or human bonsai flamingo sculptures. Ensuring that patrons leave surging with good vibes, the salon's fuchsia-and-lime-colored interior employs a vibrant décor of plants and lanterns to impart a cheerful, springtime feeling.
Amid comforting earth tones, Victoria V Salon & Spa’s hardworking stylists refashion coiffures and appendages.

Victoria V’s stylists tailor their salon treatments to complement the unique head shape and hair texture of each patron, ensuring that every newly crafted hairdo corresponds to its owner’s favorite presidential wig.
