Spa on The River's menu of Old World Italian–themed services are inspired by owner Judith Santimaw's world travels, which have included stops in Rome, Milan, Tokyo, and Singapore. Her cross-country and international journeys uncover the latest spa treatments and techniques, ranging from raindrop therapy with essential oils to Roman-style "Sistine Chapel" paraffin treatments that leave hands soft and free from paint chips. Santimaw shares her discoveries not only with her team of aestheticians, stylists, and massage therapists, but also with students at the Phillips Hairstyling Institute, where she earned professional degrees in nail specialty and cosmetology.
Guests can relax into salon stations or pedicure thrones flanked by Romanesque statues as the soothing sound of water comes from a lion-faced fountain inside and the Seneca River outside. Behind them, a full-wall mural depicts a lush garden scene complete with a grandiose fountain. Clients dry newly painted nails by the fireplace or head to the dock behind the spa to give any lingering stress a Viking funeral.
When walking into CC's Hair Affair, you might catch
a faint whiff of ginger, peppermint, or lavender—key ingredients in many of the shop's styling products and shampoos. What you probably won't smell is ammonia, as the team uses ammonia-free Paul Mitchell products for its perms, and a low-ammonia permanent hair color, also by Paul Mitchell, which offers superior gray coverage while conditioning strands with a natural beeswax base. In fact, high-quality Paul Mitchell and Matrix products are used in the majority of the treatments here, each chosen for its ability to help hair look its best without stripping it of moisture or covering it with a lamp shade.

Stacey, the proprietor of Stacey's Permanent Solutions, first opened the doors to her own salon 25 years ago. From humble beginnings, the business has expanded to a 1,000-square-foot salon with four additional stylists. Stacey's philosophy of “beauty from the inside out” and her own allergies undergird the salon’s use of natural, organic JKS, Holistix, and Retrohair salon products instead of harsh styling methods employing heavy-duty chemicals or belt sanders.
Stacey believes that her job isn't just about cutting, coloring, and conditioning hair. “It’s psychology, too,” she says, describing her way of setting clients at ease with conversation and soothing essential oils as she transforms their appearance. Her conviction that everyone should have the chance to both look and feel good has even inspired Stacey to offer at-home services for clients with special needs.
Blissful Beauty Bar owner Amber Leigh Cole has worked her glamorizing magic on faces and bodies across the country, bringing the success of her original Salt Lake City eye bar––Blissfuleigh Iced––to sister locations in New York. Amber is a certified eyelash-extension specialist and a master aesthetician; her employees all boast similar certifications, and undergo an intensive three-month training before getting the go ahead to enhance exteriors with microdermabrasion, slimming body wraps, and airbrush tanning. House-specialty eyelash extensions are applied individually to the natural lashes, making lash lines look fuller and flirtier without dressing them up in mascara or low-cut cocktail dresses. The team can also dip lashes in a hard coating that adds drama and thickness for four–six weeks, applying it to natural lashes or as an extra enhancer to bottom extensions.
The aestheticians at New You Skin Solutions and Massage focus on doing one thing, and doing it well: skincare. Their expertise in wrinkles, acne, and sun spots yields custom treatments that range from basic facials to anti-aging masks. In addition to these classic spa offerings, the professionals have embraced contemporary technology. Microcurrent treatments, microdermabrasion, and both red- and blue-light therapies lessen the appearance of laugh lines and frown lines obtained from watching a clown throw a cream pie then realizing that was your cream pie. The experts renew skin amid the soothing taupes and creams of private rooms, which also set the stage for the spa’s massage therapists, who relieve aching muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massages. Small additions such as hot stones or paraffin hand treatments augment the pampering sessions.
