With more than 20 years of pampering under its salon-service belt, Blondie's bolsters fading finger façades with a bevy of buffing options. The 25-minute Shellac manicure helps protect nails from scratches and chips for up to two weeks, gifting hands a consequence-free window for putting on a jagged steel finger-puppet extravaganza. The digital indulgence starts with a routine comparable to a normal manicure, including shaping and a slathering of fresh polish, after which nails are dried one by one under a UV lamp. Roughly 10 minutes of heat treatment cures fingertips, readying them to hit the streets or perform mesmerizing feats of sign language.

Skin experts at Esthetics Center rely on noninvasive scientific advancements to cultivate smooth, youthful complexions but draw on an ancient Indian art to redesign unruly eyebrows. Skin analyses can lead to custom facials with Shahnaz Husain herbal creams, enzyme therapy gentle enough for those with rosacea, or the outing of secret identities with better skin. Advanced exfoliation procedures involving microcrystal sprays and chemical serums reveal fresh, healthy skin as well as the depth of the aestheticians' knowledge. Body and facial waxing is an exclusive privilege of women at Esthetics Center, but the team extends their skills in eyebrow threading—an age-old technique that uses thread to nab hair but not skin—to both sexes.
