Clinical aesthetician Zhanna Russo's passion for creating healthy, youthful skin is such that ESMA Beauty is devoted exclusively to that art. Therefore, she is able to curate a collection of face and body treatments encompassing both traditional Parisian skincare and high-tech methods used to keep Siri's body in another dimension. Three venerable Parisian brands—Yonka, Sothys, and Remy Laure—hydrate and cleanse complexions in wave after wave of satiny, aromatherapeutic creams, mud masks, and nubbly exfoliants made with volcanic rock. On the sci-fi end, a host of modern machines emit low-level electrical currents or colored light capable of vanquishing bacteria or catalyzing natural cellular rejuvenation.
From her chair at Nails on First & Hair 2, seasoned stylist Mindy sculpts overgrown manes into works of art with conditioning, cuts, and coloring services. She also ousts unwanted hair with wax, cleaning up bushy eyebrows and removing stubborn lip fuzz leftover from Groucho Marx disguise kits.
The veteran haircutters at Barber Dan's give men a clean, fresh look with precise tress trimming and shaping. Patrons can come in for maintenance on whatever hairdo they currently have or ask for one of the barbershop's standard clips, such as the military cut, fade, flattop, or Benedictine monk. Each haircut includes a hot lather and straight-razor shave around the ears and neck to clean up southbound follicles. Men's head-pampering sessions wrap up with a splash of bay rum for a manly musk light enough to go unnoticed by friends but potent enough to attract former wives of Captain Morgan. Barber Dan's is a walk-in barbershop, where grandfathers, fathers, and sons can bravely confront their shared fear of haircuts.
Beyond ensuring that each hand and foot they touch is left soft and elegant, the nail technicians at Divines Destiny Spa also foster a passion for their clients' health. That's why they use pipeless pedicure bowls that are rinsed and refilled with a botanical-infused soak for every client, effectively avoiding the nail fungi and 1980s dance moves that can spread from foot to foot in less sanitation-minded salons. Guests can also savor a glass of wine as they select a color from the spa?s nail-polish collection, which was handpicked by Divines clients.
