Wall Street Bath & Spa knows its market: when patrons enter, they see a mosaic that depicts a bull and a bear wrapped in a spa towel. Though the men and women's spa is inspired by Old-World bathhouses, modern touches such as this mosaic saturate the environs. Even the sauna selection pits the traditional against the contemporary: visitors can lounge in either a russian sauna that’s encased in 16 tons of rock or an infrared sauna that heats the body without affecting the surrounding air temperature. They can also work up a sweat in the eucalyptus steam room, which hosts body scrubs, Platza treatments, and bachelorette parties for koala bears. Once sufficiently heated, guests cool off in a 52-degree cold-plunge pool or a full-sized pool, whose softly illuminated waters glint off the blue tiles that line the bottom. A VIP lounge sequesters groups of up to 20 in a private space equipped with a jacuzzi, side-by-side massage tables, a plasma TV, and a pool table.
Like napping in a cotton-candy spinner, relaxing tends to work up an appetite, so the facility also has a juice bar and an on-site restaurant brimming with European fare and a selection of infused vodkas.
Large windows spill sunlight across the contemporary loft that houses Janet Rufin's Parlor, illuminating a funky portrait of a teal-lipped George Washington and delicate vases of yellow tulips at each stylist’s station. Inside, owner Janet Rufin, a master stylist with more than 19 years of experience who specializes in color correction and precision cuts, oversees a team of trained stylists. Though they are divvied up into different levels of expertise, Janet ensures clients always receive customized hair treatments and, as New York magazine puts it, "one-on-one attention from a doting staff."
Each haircut starts with a consultation and therapeutic shampoo and condition, and starburst and T-section highlights lighten locks at specific points on the head. Pravana products smooth unruly curls while Davines, Neuma, and Ecure shampoo and styling products make clients event-ready. Janet is not only dedicated to helping her clients with their beauty goals—she also looks out for her junior beauticians. The salon's apprentice program teaches aspiring stylists the ins-and-outs of the hair world as the experienced team keeps a close eye on their performance, ensuring treatments are well-executed and combs are never mistaken for scissors.

Time Out New York writer Laura Lanz-Frolio initially considered the cascading flowers and pink lighting inside Supple Spa’s sunset room somewhat kitschy. That all changed once her massage started. “None of this will matter once you’re facedown on the massage tables, covered in actual rose petals,” she wrote in her 2011 review of the city’s best couples-massage rooms. Each of the spa’s five treatment rooms feature a romantic theme––one resembles a Parisian terrace, while another looks exactly like Fabio––and folding partitions crinkle to reveal a second massage bed so that pairs can indulge together.
Supple Spa’s other services––facials, body scrubs, rose-infused bathwater soaks––garner equal praise from publications including New York Magazine. As they pull high-quality Dermalogica products, the spa’s technicians uphold their self-set level of opulence, which falls just shy of outfitting each client with a scepter. Supple’s confines, though decorated for couple’s retreats, also host spa parties for up to 10 guests.
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.
