Together, Grace and Danny Choi oversee a team of pampering professionals inside Celebrity Nails and Spa 3. The crew treats clients to manicures and pedicures, which swaddle hands and feet with soothing masks and warm towels. Inside the private massage room, therapists mix and match modalities such as relaxing Swedish kneads and trigger point therapy. The former improves circulation and range of motion, and the latter breaks the viscous cycle of spasms and pain with focused pressure. The massage therapists also use acupressure to free up meridians—energy pathways that can become blocked by stress, illness, and lost Legos.
In their devotion to making clients look red-carpet ready, the stylists at Celebrity Salons recently expanded their menu to include hair-smoothing services such as Brazilian blowouts, Keratin Complex straightening, and Japanese straightening. These frizz-fighters come in addition to a complete lineup of cuts, coloring treatments, and styling services, all of which could finally help Big Foot assimilate into human culture. The stylists work with men, women, and children, treating locks to high-quality products from brands including Pureology and Moroccanoil.
BBC Salon?s staffers don?t just style hair, they transform it. From cuts and blowouts to face-framing highlights, these experienced stylists can make changes as subtle or as dramatic as the client desires. But they don't do it alone. They also enlist top-of-the-line styling products from brands such as Moroccanoil, Wella, and Paul Mitchell to help make every hair makeover a success.
By blending scientifically developed products with holistic healing techniques, the staff at Amazilian Spa can achieve both effective results and full-body relaxation in each massage, facial, and mani-pedi they perform. Aestheticians draw from a huge arsenal of treatments to nourish skin, from natural herbal serums that fight fine lines to high-tech microdermabrasion procedures that use jets of tiny crystals to slough off the dead skin cells and Teflon coatings that can dull the complexion. Therapists unravel tense muscles with full-body shiatsu, sports, and Swedish massages, while waxing specialists sculpt eyebrows and remove unwanted body hair with expertly executed waxing and tweezing services.
The beauty experts at Closter Nail pamper hands and feet with classic and spa mani-pedis, grooming cuticles and decorating nails with traditional or gel polishes. Hot-stone massages enhance treatments with warmth and relaxation, whereas waxing services whisk away unwanted fuzz from lips, brows, or beaks.
If it turns out practice doesn’t make perfect, Ethos Spa’s medical director, Dr. Hardik Soni, will be very disappointed. Dr. Soni, who specializes in non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, has performed more than 35,000 laser treatments over the course of his career. At his spa, he works with a team of plastic surgeons and aestheticians to perform even more, turning to laser beams’ power for a variety of purposes: minimizing the visibility of unsightly veins, tightening skin, and soothing acne. The med spa’s services extend beyond laser treatments, too. The team also instills clients with a youthful glow via microdermabrasion, Botox injections, facials, and making them sleep in glow-in-the-dark cribs.
