Though a lifetime of treating scoliosis had made her aware of massage therapy’s unique benefits, it wasn’t until she turned 40 that Gail Yurman decided to leave the corporate world and become a full-time massage therapist herself. Gail’s formal training and passion for her work are equally evident to anyone who has felt the touch of her nimble fingers. Her knowledge of a wide range of massage styles—Swedish, Thai, sports, and deep tissue, to name a few—allows her to tailor sessions to each client’s individual aches and pains.To further personalize her massages, Gail holds sessions at The Center For Health Renewal spa, at her clients’ homes, or in massage chairs in an office setting. Each session begins with a health consultation in which she adjusts her techniques to accommodate chronic pains or knots of tension from sports injuries, long workdays, or nights spent sharing one’s bed with space-hogging boogeymen.
David Sturtevant, owner of Indigo Hair Spa, draws on more than two decades of experience as he leads a team of stylists in designing shiny, fashionable hairdos. The salon is adjacent to the Trump Parc residences, where stylists work at stately wooden stations with marble countertops and full-length mirrors, and abstract artwork catches eyes as they look upward toward high ceilings and modern chandeliers.
To straighten frizzy tendrils, staffers reach for smoothing products and top off locks with moisture-rich Moroccanoil; they add depth in addition to shine by coating strands in Beth Minardi and Goldwell color; and renewing scalps and strands with products by Rene Furterer. The menu of services also extends beyond haircare with facials, body treatments, waxing, and makeup application.
Led by physician and trained surgeon Dr. Ihsan I. Jabbour, the medical staff at PureSkin—which includes a registered nurse and two physician assistants—strives to make wrinkle reduction as convenient as possible. Working out of several locations, the skilled clinicians administer cosmetic injections to calm crease-causing muscles, and they diminish facial lines for up to one year with dermal fillers such as Juvéderm, Restylane, Perlane, and Radiesse. The crew will even travel to deliver a custom Night of Beauty, allowing groups of friends to enjoy age-reversing treatments in the comfort of their own home or favorite unlocked mansion.
It's not much of a secret that beauty starts with the skin. What stumps some of the world's greatest minds, however, is how to protect that beauty from the ravages of time and an active lifestyle. Enter the aestheticians at Secret Beauty, who pool their knowledge to devise a menu of treatments that include exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments, noninvasive LED therapies, and skin-tightening face-lifts. Rather than base all of these treatments on the specific needs of a Richard Nixon mask that's 50 years old, they customize their services to accommodate each client's unique skin condition.
Since its first studio opening in Long Island in 1996, Angel Tips has been dedicated to providing expert waxing, nail, and eye treatments. This dedication has remained steadfast as the brand––which also includes Tahiti’a Spas––has grown to more than 60+ locations across New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, each staffed with passionate and highly trained technicians.
Despite the company's ever-expanding presence, each Angel Tips remains solely focused on the customer, following strict sanitary procedures that include using only disposable files and nail buffers. They also strive to make each mani-pedi, as luxurious as possible, often incorporating exfoliating honey scrubs, hot stone leg and foot massages, and the latest polishes, including chip-resistant OPI gel. When it comes to skincare, aestheticians leave no pore un-purged, using algomasks and microdermabrasion to polish faces and exfoliating bodies with a signature scrub, detoxifying sauna, and Vichy shower massage. And to ensure skin stays as soft and smooth as possible, technicians can also remove unwanted hair from more than 15 different areas, either by waxing, threading, or asking each hair annoying questions until it leaves.
Salon Cheveux's stylists and aestheticians pull out all the stops to make men and women alike feel comfortable. Few retreats can claim as balanced a menu as Salon Cheveux's, which includes haircuts for teenagers, beard trims for men, and bang trims for women.
