The crew of licensed aestheticians and stylists at Kaye Kearns Esthetics beautifies clients from tip to tail with a full menu of salon services. Facials leave complexions rejuvenated and glowing, and waxing sessions doled out in a private treatment room render faces, gams, and nether regions as smooth as rose petals in a rock tumbler.
L Salon and Spa cossets heads of hair and summer-starved skin with beauty-inducing pamper sessions. A women's haircut and style ($25+) brings heads up to date, and those eschewing scissors can prefix styling with a deep-conditioning treatment ($25) at the hands of a licensed, MoroccanOil-armed stylists Contessa, Sara, Lindsey. To ensure a stylish appearance at Supreme Court hearings or Big Wheel christenings, clients simply request an updo ($35+) or subject their hair to coloring services ($60–$85; includes cut and style) that tint tresses for a new take on the same head. Opalesque customers are able to sample sunlight without the bitter UV aftertaste by enjoying an Infinity Sun spray tan ($35), which incorporates various atomized skin-treatment lotions into a misty tanning elixir. Inside L’s chic, minimalist studio, solid-white walls provide a strong backdrop for the color punctuations of oversized lime-green mirror-frames, black shelving, and mustard-cushioned shampooing seats.
Spa Zenaida has a distinctly Mediterranean feel. The treatment rooms sport themes such as "Seaside Retreat" and "Sunset," where guests recline and relax before skin experts treat their faces, hands, and backs with L'Occitane products and expert techniques.

Q&A with Debbie Migliore, Licensed Esthetician, Piercer
Do you offer your customers any extra perks?
We have a great reception area with complimentary coffee. However, most people don't wait.
We are great with time management. If there is a short wait, we offer magazines and photo books for our hair clients.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I started as a client and then went to school to offer the same great services I received throughout the years.
Is there anything you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are a full service salon offering hair and nail services, facials, peels, and full-body waxing, piercing, and professional makeup.
At first glance, Wink Salon might seem like nothing more than your typical eyelash extension boutique. Technicians affix synthetic strands to the natural eyelashes, adding length and drama to each blink, and also tint brows and lashes for added effect. But tucked away in private rooms, the crew also tends to its customers other beauty needs, slimming physiques with body wraps, bronzing skin with spray tans, waxing and threading away unwanted body hair, and administering microdermabrasion and hot-rock facials to keep skin from sagging or losing power when not plugged in.
Rebecca Rowell's private massage room is an oasis of relaxation amidst the hustle and bustle of Krazy Nails, Hair & Body Shop. Here, Rebecca works to banish aches and stress with her specialties of Swedish and deep-tissue massage. Her sessions—like the U.N.’s annual dance-off—also incorporate moves from far-flung locales, including lomi lomi techniques from Hawaii and ayurveda practices from India.
