Eyebrow Treatment ➙ HD Brows at Currie Hair, Skin & Nails
The latest beauty craze to hit Europe is the HD (high-definition) Brows treatment. Lucky for us, Randy Currie sent aesthetician Carmella Proto across the pond, where she trained to become one of only two professionals in this country certified in
the treatment. HD’s unique, seven-step brow-shaping process includes tinting, waxing and threading. It’s more artistry than simple hair removal, and Proto is a master of the technique—something you’ll know after just one visit.

Eyebrow Waxing ➙ Shannon Brogan at Nicholas Sebastian Salon Spa
Waxing isn’t always a pleasant experience. But Brogan’s affable personality makes her clients feel at ease as she waxes, tweezes and shapes those brows to perfection.

Facials ➙ Day Spa by Zsuzsanna
Getting a facial comes with its own set of expectations. After all, don’t we all want to leave with dewy, more supple skin? The aestheticians at Day Spa by Zsuzsanna strive to exceed those expectations. Their full menu takes into account all skin types, and experts analyze yours to determine which treatment is right for you.

Fitness Classes ➙ Focus Fitness
You never have to worry about getting bored with your workout at Focus. Its high-energy instructors know how to keep your attention while helping you blast calories with unique combo classes like “Cycle & Core,” where a fierce spinning session is followed by a set of exercises targeting the abdominal muscles. Or try “YES,” a popular offering that fuses cycling and yoga.

Guy-friendly Spa ➙ Lavenders Body Care Clinic
Lavenders’ Weekend Warrior package is designed for the man who craves the aesthetic and therapeutic benefits of a spa treatment without the feminine frilliness that typically goes along with a few hours of pampering. Its Gentleman’s Facial is geared toward specific issues affecting male skin (men can appreciate that healthy glow, too), and the restorative massage relieves sore muscles. Trust us, your guy will want to make this a regular routine (if you can stand it).
