Gene Frisco and Rhonda Schladerbach opened this Soho oasis to provide a luxe beauty experience at wallet-friendly prices. The decadent interior alone—baroque chandeliers, plush velvet couches—is enough to lure you in. Grab a seat at one of the six stations for a blowout ($45) that can be done five different ways. Top it off with a professional makeup application ($20–$60) and a visit to the nails nook, featuring five stations for pedicures ($15–$55) and three for manicures ($10–$40). Those in a rush should opt for 20-minute express manis ($10) and 30-minute express pedis ($15). Otherwise, indulge in a 75-minute chakra pedicure ($55), which includes a half-hour-long reflexology massage. Unwind further with deep-cleansing facials (50mins $80) that employ botanical masks and full-body hot-stone massages (75mins $130). Continue the pampering at home by picking up Aveda products, including hydrating lotions ($33) and soaking bath salts ($30).
