As owner of The Beauty Studio, Elizabeth wears many hats. She's a state-licensed aesthetician and nail technician, is certified in medical aesthetics and micropigmentology, and can braid hair with one finger. In the comfort of her cozy beauty studio, clients can draw on her 15 years of experience with an invigorating facial, shea-butter wrap, or anti-aging exfoliation treatment. The spa can also promote eye appeal with lash extensions or nix unflattering hair from the brows and body with a specialty waxing session.
The aestheticians of Chateau Day Spa Studio believe that everyone deserves to feel good in their skin. To help put that belief into action, they offer treatments such as facials for women, men, and teens. They make use of Dermalogica products and offer spa days for brides.
Maria Guasta started cosmetology school in her junior year of high school and earned her license before she even graduated. When she turned 23, she bought Savage Hair International and devised her own training program for the stylists she hired, sculpting manes for Broadway productions and New York Fashion Week in the meantime. Two decades later, this style prodigy turned beauty-industry veteran continues to develop her salon and personally train each of her stylists, equipping them with products by Schwarzkopf and MoroccanOil. In her spare time, she spreads her instructional talents beyond her salon's walls as an educator with the Rusk creative team, teaching other stylists how to forge stylish haircuts without actually lowering their clients' ears.
Since founding her refuge of beauty in 1994, owner Amy Russin has amassed a staff of experienced stylists and aestheticians skilled in a variety of beautifying treatments. The menu emphasizes updo upgrades, but extends its aesthetic umbrella to include facial skincare, massage treatments, and manicure services. The glamorous gunslingers strap on bandoliers of products such as OPI, American Crew, Dermalogica, and Pureology to treat hair and hide, and other specialties include body wraps, waxing, and makeup application.
At A'Lovish Spa, the pampering begins almost immediately. Upon entering, every guest receives a warm neck wrap and an invitation to sip cucumber water and herbal tea. The attention only gets more personal from there, especially once guests find themselves in a private treatment room. During a facial, a licensed aesthetician begins cleansing the face with organic plant extracts and lathering a smoothing moisturizing creme on the skin. But there are even more ways to get pampered at A'Lovish, which include invigorating body scrubs, six kinds of facials, and a hot stone paraffin manicure that leaves nails brightly polished and skin soft enough to eliminate fingerprints. The spa also offers waxing and staffs a makeup artist who artistically prepares clients for special occasions.
