At Salon Ilona & Spa, highly trained staffers primp fingers and toes with customized nail services. A 30-minute regular mani transforms lackluster nubs into decorative finger toppers with a basic nail shaping, cuticle clean-up, and polishing. During a 45-minute spa manicure, nails undergo the basic trimmings plus a skin-softening treatment of paraffin wax and a scrub that whisks away dead skin cells and teaches freshly exposed cells proper dinner-party etiquette.
Once snuggled into one of Salon Ilona & Spa’s new massaging pedi thrones, patrons can surrender their toes to a meticulous tech for a 45-minute spa pedicure ($35), which includes a thorough talon filing, cuticle trim, scrub, massage, and polishing. Alternatively, the chocolate pedicure ($45) surrounds each foot in an aromatic plume of chocolate, which wafts from the cocoa scrub and chocolate-buttercream lotion. Both salves help to hydrate epidermises and have been known to leave chocolate-starved clients licking their ankles.
Salon Ilona and Day Spa
To keep their skills fresh, the staff at Studio M head to New York and Beverly Hills to learn the latest beauty trends and techniques. Once back at their Clifton salon, the stylists blend these new skills with their years of experience to create flattering styles with ombre highlights, Keratin Complex straightening treatments, and SoCap hair extensions. Meanwhile, aestheticians perform Yonka facials and crystal microdermabrasion to restore skin's youthful glow as digits receive coats of OPI polish and LCN tips. For head-to-toe rejuvenation, clients can call upon the spa's therapist who customizes massages to suit each guest, using hot stones to ease tight muscles and reflexology to relax hopelessly tangled toes.
