Though Miracles' quirky and diversely talented staff of stylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians aims to lift patrons' spirits with beauty transformations, their work did not wholly inspire the salon's name—the beauty sanctuary's original location was inside an old church. Owner Kendalia Edelman has since expanded her business into a larger location, enabling her to add an area for laser treatments that target everything from excess hair to leg veins. She also found space for Little Miracles, a separate salon where kids up to age 9 can get haircuts with supervision from parents and invisible friends moonlighting as style consultants.

People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
It is very personable and private to each individual, and all of our attention is focused on their wants and needs.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
Identifying each client's concerns and trying to meet their goals, which can range from clearing up acne and reducing the signs of aging to just carving out some time to relax.
Organic skincare products feature prominently in Fountain of Youth Skin & Nail Spa's assortment of beauty treatments. Nina Butera, a licensed aesthetician and nail technician, leverages organic, medical-grade skincare products to draw out dormant skin tones and treat conditions ranging from rosacea to acne. She also helps her clients ward off unwanted body hair with waxing services, and she slathers digits in Zoya and shellac polishes to protect nails from being chipped by disoriented golfers.
Therapeutic Massage of CNY aims to help bodies become healthier with a range of holistic therapies. The licensed massage therapist attends continuing education classes to keep massage skills in top shape and perfect customer favorites; the Swedish and deep tissue massage. Simple head, neck, and shoulder massage helps obliterate tension caused by long periods spent sitting at a desk or standing under it.
Trinity Salon & Spa co-owner Cher sometimes perfects the makeup and hairdos of models at haute fashion shoots, but she spends most of her time making sure her regular clients get the same star treatment. Her business partner Candi shares the same passion for high-fashion styling, holding certifications from companies including Rusk and Matrix Hair Color. The pair have put together a team of salon stylists who snip hair into follicular masterpieces and reprogram hair textures. The crew can impart uniform straightness with keratin treatments or massage strands with ground-up Shirley Temple headshots to create billowing curls.
On the spa side, the DiamondTome microdermabrasion reveals fresh, unblemished skin with chips of real diamonds, and medical-grade peels accelerate the skin's exfoliation process. Men can enjoy treatments such as the Pampered Facial, during which aesthetician Nina bolsters handsome looks with a seaweed mud mask, facial massage, warm towels, and a beer to sip. The spa keeps hands and feet of all kinds well-groomed with mani-pedis, and elongates eyelashes, hair, or strap-on Santa Claus beards with realistic extensions.
