New Moon Salon & Spa?a full-service day spa?lives up to its name with relaxing nail, massage, and skincare services that rejuvenate bodies and minds. Nail techs keep hands and feet chip-free for up to two weeks with CND Shellac, or hydrate digits with nourishing almond oil during traditional mani-pedis. More than 10 massage modalities call on hot towels and stones to help loosen tight muscles, as essential oils infused with the scent of cedarwood, wild thyme, or eucalyptus instill a sense of calm. The staff also dolls up faces with permanent-makeup applications and uses wax to subtract unwanted hairs and solve tricky arithmetic tattoos.
Licensed aestheticians Lynda Young and Monique Mannino split their time between administering spa treatments at Rock Creek Medi Spa and educating students at its adjoining Esthetics Institute. The aestheticians helm a staff of technicians and valedictorian lasers who restore balance and radiance to skin. In addition to addressing epidermal concerns, staff members use non-invasive treatments to contour curves, reduce fine lines, and zap away unwanted hair. They also offer full-body fitness with vibration platform machines that help build muscle as you burn calories.
Combining keen aesthetic intuition with professional-grade products and equipment, the stylists at Front Street Hair Studio use an arsenal of techniques to create changing, energetic new looks for their clients. They begin each appointment with a thorough consultation, determining how anything from a quick trim to a full head of highlights will accentuate a client's best features, even if their best features are solving integral and differential equations. From there, the stylists tend to tresses using Aquage shampoos and styling products?made using nutrient-rich blends of organic seaweeds and algae?as well as vibrant coloring formulas by Wella.
