Master colorist Joel Warren and master stylist Edward Tricomi—both of whom earned their stripes crafting coiffures for New York City’s fashion elite—lend their names and shared knowledge to Warren-Tricomi Salon, a hair-care boutique with locations across the East Coast. The duo’s venture has caught the attention of magazines such as InStyle, Elle, and Seventeen—hardly a surprise, considering the high profile they earned while forging ‘dos for Fashion Week and developing their own line of hair-care products. Following the example of their salon’s founders, expert stylists shape locks with precision cuts and shift shades with INOA ammonia-free color products. The team banishes frizzy curls with relaxers, adds shine with glaze, and elongates strands with natural-looking hair extensions. Across the salon, nail technicians polish and refine fingernails and aestheticians fend off attacks from irate bees as they employ freshly gathered wax to banish fuzz on lips and legs.
Jade Day Spa's array of relaxing services blends the best of Western science with the balancing benefits of Eastern medicine, like a particle accelerator built according to feng shui. Licensed massage therapists trained with specialists in China to master intensive modalities that were conceived centuries ago by Asian practitioners. Acupuncture experts treat chronic pain or unhealthy habits by manipulating pressure points to improve the flow of energy through the body. Guests admire the spa's deep-red walls and Asian-themed artwork as they recline for 1 of 14 types of facials that combat aging better than wearing a watch backwards. A spacious signature treatment room contains a wooden tub for soothing foot soaks dappled with rose petals and a pair of beds for romantic couples massages.
Perfect Brows NYC doesn’t just remove hair above the eyes; the studio removes it from all over the body using three different methods. Its threading services uproot follicles on the face with a twisted cotton thread. And during waxing services, a thin layer of molten wax covers fuzzy areas and adheres to hairs before pulling them from the root. The third method used, called sugaring, is an organic alternative that removes hair with a natural paste made from sugar, lemon juice, guar gum, and water. This method is proven to provide less breakage and ingrown hairs and to leave clients with skin as smooth as a newborn dolphin. Each method provides a blank canvas for the studio’s other services, which include henna work and facials.
Hair & Spa Party 24 Hours takes to heart New York’s nickname as “the city that never sleeps” by keeping its own doors open 24 hours a day. Clients can walk in at any hour for spa services that range from beautifying facials and waxing to soothing massages. Professional makeup applications accent natural features, and feather hair extensions help humans infiltrate and observe musters of peacocks in the wild. The staff pampers clients at styling stations carved into a gold-tiled wall with dangling chandeliers covered with crystals.
A party atmosphere abounds at Sweet House Nail & Spa, as nail techs ply guests with complimentary cosmos on weeknights. A BYOB policy kicks in on weekends, with guests settling into a bright pink sofa for French pedicures or silk extensions. Whatever the treatment, techs ensure safe practices by sterilizing all equipment in an autoclave machine and using disposable file kits.
