When it comes to beauty, Ultimate Lash and Brow sets out to succeed where others have failed. Certified eyelash extension technicians free clients of mascara's clumping, smudging, and running issues by granting them with a full fan of dark, dramatic, and semi-permanent extensions instead. To turn back the clock on disastrous eyebrow waxing appointments, aesthetician Christiane Gendrey calls on her experience beautifying celebrities to carefully tweeze brows back into shape, sometimes even devising a comprehensive monthly regimen to grow back missing hairs. And the studio's facial services don't pull any punches?rather than using the ineffective techniques of so-called pampering facials, the experts target stubborn skin problems and treat faces to deep exfoliation, helping bring back a healthy rate of cell turnover and create a softer, more even complexion.
Dubbed the “pale skin fighters,” Sunless Revolution’s tanning technicians bronze their clients through UV-free methods performed in their industrial-style salon or on the road. With top automated misting booths such as Mystic HD and VersaSpa, customers can stop in for quick self-service tans that offer perks such as a pH-balancing spray. Alternatively, airbrush tans applied by hand give human canvases a custom glow.
Though wrapping something is usually supposed to keep it contained, the treatments at Segue Body Wraps are meant to force toxins and water weight out. Since 2005, the center?s technicians have accomplished this effect by bandaging clients' midsection, thighs, and sometimes the face with a mineral infused tightening booster. Once fully wrapped, clients are placed in an infrared heat blanket, which causes water reduction through sweating and calorie burn. This helps reduce cellulite and stretch marks while detoxifying the body. Segue Body Wraps also offers a number of other services, including facials, waxing, and custom make-up. The relaxing facial cleanses and exfoliates the skin before a hydration mask is applied, followed by toner and moisturizing sunscreen.
Soft light pours into French Twist Salon, where brown pebbled-leather chairs, gilded mirrors, and exposed pipes lend an old-timey feel. But while the decor harks back to another era, the treatments and cache of hair products remain decidedly current. Owner Carole guides her team of stylists as they steal away frizz with Brazilian blowouts and glossing treatments or add color and dimension with highlights. Elsewhere in the salon, stylists perform waxing services and enhance features with makeup applications or three different kinds of eyelash extensions—day, night, or 24 hours of daylight. Carole doubles as a seasoned manicurist who delivers long-lasting shine with Shellac gel polish.
Hawaiian-print curtains welcome clients to Suki Day Spa's shabby-chic Fourth Avenue location, where bamboo screens flank cream-colored sofas in wicker or leather and a vast painting of a red blossom reflects punches of crimson in the throw pillows and fresh blooms. The long, lean space reaches beyond the plush pedicure chairs to a hallway with private rooms, where spa treatments such as massages, facials, and spray tans gloss clients' guises more effectively than daily slatherings of vaseline and glitter.
Salon On 30th is a one-stop beauty haven, offering hair treatments and a large array of beauty services, which range from facials to waxing, and airbrush tanning. Beneath high ceilings with exposed beams, textured clay-tiled walls and sparkling chandeliers provide a backdrop for the beautification process. The licensed stylists transform clients with cuts and color services, prepping them for a job interview or a successful assimilation into the witness-protection program. Within private treatment rooms, the aestheticians exfoliate work to diminish fine lines and wrinkles with microdermabrasion sessions.
