Earning accolades from the likes of Jezebel, Flirt & Flutter Beauty Boutique simplifies beauty routines with treatments that have long-lasting results. Eyelash extensions take the place of mascara to create fuller lashes that flutter for up to eight weeks. With HD brows services, technicians use a combination of waxing, threading and tweezing techniques to shape brows before darkening them with a henna formula that lasts up to six weeks. In the nail salon, Perfect Match gel polish blends the long-lasting finish of a gel with the speedy application of a polish. These time-saving beauty services can be consolidated with Bedicures?in which clients rest atop a plush massage bed while receiving a manicure and pedicure in tandem with their choice of facial service.
Flirt & Flutter Lash Loft also tends to the health of eyes inside the Lash & Brow Hospital, where a certified lashologist removes eyelash extensions, performs lash and brow treatments for cancer patients and helps eyes recover from misdirected wet willies.

For five years, Astoria Med-Spa has welcomed customers into a laser and skin center overseen by a physician.

Jodi Cabena left corporate America to cultivate her knowledge of nutrition and herbal wellness, which blossomed into a holistic beauty practice informed by science at Healing Harbour. Her first step was a course in electrolysis and perfecting the power walks of runway models, followed by enrollment in a program at The International School of Skin, Nail Care and Massage Therapy in Atlanta. There, she became a Georgia board-certified aesthetician and a massage therapist, learning to nourish complexions with highly engineered PCA products and low-tech botanicals such as camphor, as well as heal the symptoms of stress and injury hidden in muscles. In her search for advanced rejuvenation techniques, Cabena discovered a wax developed to safely remove the hair of surgical patients and several noninvasive light therapies that whiten teeth and promote clear, youthful skin.
The owners of Sanda Gané European Day Spa, Sanda Gané and Maxine Turner, joined forces with medical director Dr. Itzhak Nir to expand their menu of facial, massage, and waxing services to include laser treatments and beauty injections. While visitors yield their bodies to head-to-toe makeovers, they abandon their stresses in the spa’s tranquil setting free of the outside world’s cell-phone ringtones, honking horns, and hyenas overcome by hysterical laughter. In a flurry of scissor snips and haircare products, stylists cut and color outmoded hairdos, and manicurists groom and polish natural backscratchers. The spa’s medical staff wields lasers that blast away body hair and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and spider veins. Also, MediQuick weight-loss plans whittle away unwanted pounds with appetite suppressants and dietary advice.
The bright-pink walls and the pops of zebra-print fabric inside Dazzling Diva Day Spa are the first hint that it's not exactly a traditional spa; the sight of guests strutting down an in-house runway is the most obvious. These clues are in line with Dazzling Diva?founder Angela Robbins's vision of creating a party space for guests of all ages, where sassy services would not only beautify, but also inspire confidence. Inside, girls relax as spa technicians slick on nail polish, apply makeup, or layer on masks of chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla. Then, the girls raid the diva dressing room to outfit themselves for a stroll down the catwalk.
