The spa is sheltered in the homey embrace of a 300-year-old Victorian house, with fireplaces to warm wintertime patrons and a garden patio that blooms in summer months. The relaxed country setting is further cultivated by the staff. The team consists of massage therapists, aestheticians, nail technicians, and a hair stylist who determines which style of music hair should perform. To give back to their community, the team discounts services for local businesses and employees of the Town of Tyngsborough.
When The Spa at Stonehedge was looking to expand its service menu, it was inspired by an unexpected source: a wine cellar. The spa is part of the Stonehedge Inn, a woodlands resort that has one of the largest collections of wine in New England. The destination’s wine experts were well aware that wine grapes carry high levels of antioxidants, an element commonly used in antiaging products. So, the spa began incorporating Olavie’s Le Vin skincare line, which is harvested from the seeds of chardonnay grapes grown in Burgundy. The products are used in treatments such as the Wine Barrel soak, a hydrotherapy bubble bath with aloe vera and botanical extracts, as well as the Vino massage, in which a massage therapist kneads skin with antioxidant-rich massage oil.
The appointment-only spa is outfitted with loads of amenities, including an all-weather pool, tennis court, and private sunbathing deck. The space is built from European marble, and its skylights let sun pour down from the high ceilings. Guests can create all-day packages that include lunch, with elegant menus including a shrimp caesar salad with truffle dressing and sommelier-selected wines.
Zeba Beauty's highly trained staff specializes in services that tame unruly facial fuzz and beautify clients' façades, including eyebrow threading, henna tattooing, and eyelash-extending. Using a medical-grade adhesive, the technicians will meticulously apply semi-permanent extensions to each lash, imbuing them with extra length, thickness, and flirtability. The one-by-one attachment process results in a new set of butterfly kissers that maintain a natural look and cause nearby eyebrows to migrate to cheekbones in a jealous fury. With careful maintenance, the longer-than-life lashes can last from two to four weeks, or until a high-powered blink launches them into the cosmos.
Sheer white curtains line My Perfect Salon & Spa Inc.'s beauty haven, where swirled glass pendant lights illuminate individual guests as they indulge in skin and nail treatments. Aestheticians brighten and soften complexions with chemical peels formulated for a variety of skin types in the tranquility of a private treatment room.
Back on the salon floor, skilled technicians sheathe nails in traditional polishes, acrylic tips, and gelish and Shellac lacquers, which use a UV-curing process to resist cracks, chips, or smudges for up to two weeks. Pedicure thrones, regularly sanitized with hospital-grade disinfectant, boast a pipeless water system that uses clean water for each service rather than recirculating impurities and sock-themed knock-knock jokes left over from previous pedicures. At the end of each service, nail techs individually wrap and sanitize all reusable tools in a medical-grade autoclave system and ensure that all files, buffers, and pedicure slippers are used only once.
Situated on the verdant, castle-like grounds of the Radisson hotel, Synthesis Spa cultivates a tranquil haven for its all-encompassing roster of skincare and aesthetic treatments. Aestheticians recruit customized microdermabrasion, facials, and powerful Comfort Zone skincare products to help combat signs of aging and overly indented dimples. They can also outline simple, at-home skincare techniques to keep freshly refurbished façades glowing as brightly as a lava lamp inside a supernova. While therapists' hands glide over tense muscles with organic, 100% jojoba oil during soothing massages, spa staffers further gussy up epidermises with thorough mani-pedis, makeup applications, and hair-removal services that employ Bombshell strip wax and Azulene hard wax.To bolster relaxation, Synthesis Spa grants guests access to the Radisson's Atlantis Sports Club, a full-service facility brimming with calming accoutrements. Patrons can singe calories with cardio equipment or a dry sauna before diving into heated pools that, like the best-trained houseplants, reside both indoors and outdoors.
A master stylist and graduate of Paul Mitchell Salon School, Mogi Zagdsuren snips and pigments tresses while flanked on all sides by abstract paintings and statues available for purchase. Professional products such as Moroccanoil and Aquage combine to update 'dos with styling and straightening services, and CND nail polish keeps talons bewitching enough to attract glances and style-aware falcons to ungloved hands. While contemporary art pops from every corner, cubic, fire-engine red furnishings draw focus to the hair being straightened at each beauty station. Combined with the crimson-lined floor, this vibrant atmosphere has coaxed the Nashua Telegraph to profess, “Every element of the salon/gallery is tied together.”
The team of licensed aestheticians at The Skin and Body Spa has a variety of ways to help guests relax and feel pampered. They massage physiques in styles from Swedish and deep tissue to reflexology. The relaxing heat of hot stones helps melt away stress, while sport massages help athletes return to peak performance. They also polish nails during manicures and pedicures, and tend to lashes during eyelash extensions. For facials they have one strict rule: no pore-clogging ingredients are allowed near a client's face, leading to facials that incorporate ingredients from seaweed to electrical pulses. The spa-style organic seaweed facial hydrates skin and fights off acne with the same ingredient that keeps sea life blemish-free. The anti-aging ultrasonic facial, on the other hand, minimizes wrinkles with pulses of microcurrents, which prompt the skin to produce more collagen.
