The aesthetics aficionados at Midtown Day Spa pamper clients with customizable spa services. During a 60-minute Swedish massage, a licensed massage therapist soothes tense musculature with the strong kneading motions and delicate touch of a chef sculpting a bust of Millard Fillmore from pizza dough. Alternatively, a 60-minute facial cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturizes tired visages with an arsenal of skincare products chosen specifically for each client. Upon exiting, clients can check their newly radiant reflections in mirrors hung from the spa's yellow and purple walls or breathe in the aromas of flowers clasped in nearby sconces.
At Buff Natural Nail Bar, the primary focus is on healthy, natural nails. To that end, the staff of skilled technicians keeps manicures and pedicures toxin-free by only using nail polishes without formaldehyde, DBP, or toluene. The nail salon does not apply or remove acrylics, gels, gel polish, wraps, or press-on cat claws, preferring instead to nurture and tend to nails in their natural state. This stalwart pledge has helped Buff Natural Nail Bar earn the News & Record's title of Triad's Best Nail Salon for more than five years running.
Buff Natural Nail Bar's impressive menu includes hair and nail services performed by highly trained stylists. Hairstyling services use products from botanically based Phyto to cultivate face-flattering styles and dynamic highlights.
The aestheticians at Skin Like Rissa's revitalize visages with Cosmedix Chirally Correct 45-minute skin peels. A clinical Benefit peel soothes faces with antioxidant fruit enzymes that remove surface skin cells and infuse the surface with hydrating shea butter and essential oils. For clients with problematic or acne-prone skin, a Purity peel provides medical-strength relief, combating blemishes with a combination of salicylic acid, L-TCA, and L-lactic acid. After each procedure, the staff arms patrons with a one-week supply of UltraPure Brighten Up cleanser and CosMedix Serious Protection—a chemical-free, non-moisturizing sunscreen that's handy for day trips or night trips to the sun.
Kallos Hair and Skin's freestanding salon cuddles guests in privacy as hardwood floors, airy curtains, and ample natural lighting add to a tranquil ambiance heightened by elegiac hymns sung by choruses of abandoned hairs. The studio's services include haircare for men and women; specialty facial and body treatments, including reflexology and reiki; and airbrush tans that blend Norvell's organic tanning formula with natural golden-brown bronzers.
