Everyone deserves beautiful skin in the eyes of Efectiv Skin Care Salon owner Paulette Banoza, who has made it her mission to infuse complexions and bodies with the telltale glow of healthiness. Her services range from gentle exfoliating facials to intensive, vitamin-based treatments designed to erase evidence of sun damage, wrinkles, and puffiness. Banoza’s commitment to healthy skin is evident in her willingness to seek out and sell products specifically tailored to a wide range of skin types and scale colors. She applies these products to clients’ bodies as they recline atop a plush bed in a treatment room awash with soft light.
Familiar with the nuanced personalities of all types of hair, the trained barbers at The Blade Barbershop groom guests with a full repertoire of techniques and tools. Equipped with scissors, straight razors, and trimmers, they can orchestrate an array of hairstyles, including fades, perms, and braids. Plush barber chairs enable guests to spin around to test the centrifugal motion of their bangs or view the shop's leather couches and cherry-oak floors.
Blush Salon staff of style professionals soothe skin and primp scalps inside a golden glimmering salon. A day of beauty begins with tress tending, where follicles will achieve tingliness via gentle shampooing, and progresses to tress snipping, where an experienced stylist will assess hair and face shape to craft a fittingly fine cut. Once your hair is fully styled and dried three miles from the sun, choose a lip or eyebrow waxing and let make-up artists apply spotlight-ready tones of reds, corals, and fabulous. For a simpler day of beauty, a full-service manicure soaks digits into softness before a buffing and polish. Choose from a slew of matte or glittery hues.
Alan Darush MD sat down at his computer, and rather than seeing a flurry of Facebook updates, tweets, and piles of junk email, he saw opportunity. Realizing that the internet could be used to bring dermatologist-created skincare products and guides to the home, he founded NewLaserSkinCenter.com. In conjunction with the website, the brick-and-mortar NewSkin Laser Center keeps client’s skin young and healthy with skin treatments including Juvaderm, Restylane, and Radiesse. The center’s services include technologically advanced treatments, such as acne treatments that target blemish with a blue light that activates a sensitizing agent and photofacials that repair damaged skin with light energy, as well as Venus Freeze, IPL facials, and laser hair removal. For the time between treatments, clients can visit the products page to stock up on products from Skinmedica and Neova to tend to skin needs at home.
The stylists at Studio 818 Beauty Lounge, who are led by 33-year industry vet and owner Matti Roshangah, are good at their jobs - but that doesn't mean they've become complacent. It's quite the opposite. They dedicate a good deal of time to continuing their training with new products and learning new styling techniques. This allows them to create styles that can be simultaneously fashion-forward while maintaining elements of time-tested and classic looks. The salon's multi-cultural team touts a full suite of specialties and is more than capable of working with all types of hair, whether its fine, curly, or made of My Little Pony tails.
Since opening in 2000, New Valley Day Spa has become a well-loved spot for massage, facials, and body treatments—it’s even been featured in Allure and Vogue. Inside, therapists break through tension with three types of massage—Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu—and draw out impurities with detoxifying body wraps made with marine mud. Sessions at the two-story day spa unfold in separate treatment rooms for men, women, and puppets, all with heated floors and relaxing music throughout. Plus, most services include free access to the spa’s relaxation facilities, which include a whirlpool, steam room, and sauna.
