Fall Refresh. Why You Should Start With a Facial.

 

‘Fall Refresh’
It’s officially Fall which means that it is time for a refresh!
As your sun-kissed glow begins to dwindle the signs of sun damage may start to appear.  It happens to the best of us, even those that wear SPF diligently.  Unfortunately these tell-tale signs take form in unwanted or extra sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and dehydration.

Which makes this is the perfect time to schedule a restorative treatment to specifically target and repair sun damage.  We recommend scheduling any one of our
Rescue Spa Signature Facials, always tailored to your needs.

For those looking to indulge we also offer Biologique Recherche Facials at both of our locations in NYC and Philadelphia.
No need to book a flight to experience these exceptional treatments, these are the same treatments offered at the world famous Ambassade de la Beauté on the Champs-Élysées in Paris.

Manicures and Pedicures
Stay on trend and choose any color of your choice from our incredible selection of polishes. You can also opt for Bioseaweed Gel, the healthy alternative to typical gel nails, for 2+ weeks of high shine, chip-free gel nails, sans UV light (we use LED).

Threading
There is nothing quite like a face-transforming magic of an eyebrow shaping with a pro.  Allow our experienced hands to custom shape the perfect pair of brows for your face.

Hair Salon
Fall is the ideal time for a hair refresh!  Whether you are refreshing your color, cutting it short, adding some fringe, or simply playing with texture… this is the prime time to do it.

Makeup
Our Fall 2017 palette is as gorgeous as ever.  Our skilled makeup artists will enhance your features for a beautiful finish.
From no-makeup makeup … to all-out glam it’s entirely up to you.

Stark-white blouson jumpsuits and pretty floral skirt-and-midriff-top suits call for so much more than a plain old nude nail this summer.

The trendlet

Saturated pastels – think cotton-candy pink, grass green, sky blue, lilac purple, and even milkshake white – on short, squarish nails pop against quiet palettes. The more opaque your shade of sherbet is, the better.

Where’s it come from?

Shortly after first lady Michelle Obama kicked off the greige nail obsession during the 2012 Democratic National Convention, women moved away from candy apple red and clear polishes en masse.

In recent years, advancements in manicure technology – ultraviolet gel systems and quick-drying polishes – have eliminated nicks and cracks. As a result, we’ve gone hard on color. Even the most conservative of us experimented with deep cobalts, navys, and blacks in the fall.

Influential designers from Wes Gordon to Misha Nonoo directed stylists to use chalky hues on the nails of models sent down the spring 2015 runways, complementing the pale jumpsuits and pantsuits they were wearing.

And in April, Obama paired a soft blue nail with a Monique Lhuillier watercolor coat-and-dress ensemble to welcome the Japanese prime minister and his wife to the White House – working her influential nail magic once again.

Who’s wearing it?

Ladies eager to add personality to their neutrals while standing out in a quiet way. Actress Zoe Saldana has been spotted in white nails, singer Lady Gaga recently went with violet, and actress Megan Fox has been known to prefer periwinkle.

Would Elizabeth wear it?

Even as I type this, my nails are a cool shade of key-lime-pie green.

Should you wear it?

Absolutely. Ice-cream-color hues make fingertips quietly fierce. And don’t be afraid to treat the lighter hues as a neutral. In other words, a light-pink or yellow nail will not at all clash with your orange shirtdress.
