When I first moved to New York, I was hired at a big publishing company, an experience which I’d fantasized about most of my life but which quickly turned sour, thanks to a Devil-Wears-Prada-esque boss who told me she wanted to “crush my face.” Disillusioned, I swore off publishing and went to work as a receptionist at a medical day spa on the upper east side, owned by a renowned plastic surgeon. This was before the financial crisis caused the spa to close. It was a time when medical facials were considered a necessity, not a luxury, and where UES ladies in fur coats were as ubiquitous as NYC parking tickets. I became familiar not only with the ins and outs of good, scientific esthetics, but also the contours and the width of the American Express Black Card (its titanium is nearly as thick as the hard cover of a book). The estheticians at the spa were medically trained, and worked with products that combined essential oils with top-level chemistry. My face looked and felt like a 16-year-old’s when I worked there, thanks to the legendary employee perks of the financially confident, indulgent aughts.
这里有您需要了解哪些有关塔蒂亚娜（和，我想推测，保罗拉布雷克其他美学家）：她知道皮肤。她回答我的问题，具有专业知识和优雅（是我的皮肤还是油性，就像是当我第一次看到她吗？我收到OLLLLLLD？）。她给我的脱落是自然化学（擦洗是家庭，人;化学剥脱是治疗室）。我几乎觉得她的提取（除了鼻子，这是无法避免的）。And as the hydrating mask was setting, her face massage was so transcendent that–I’m not kidding you–my brain opened a little to the heavens, and–I swear I’m not making this up–a bright light in the shape of the door formed in my head. THAT’S how talented this woman is. My mind’s eye practically saw the gates of heaven in Tatiana’s treatment room.
伸展出来，帮助自己到他们的免费叮咬后，我得到了照顾Jovanni为我按摩。我认为有，我意识到我根本不知道什么是“热巧克力按摩”将带来一个时刻 - 他们会用巧克力在此呢？幸运的是，他们实际使用的巧克力油与被加热的玄武岩石块，总全身按摩（我提到你铺设在加热的床吗？）。我以前只有一个热石按摩，并点击噼啪的不断切换加热的石头被喧宾夺主 - 不在这里。Jovanni是一个亲以覆盖在天鹅绒般的油无缝切换的石头。She smoothly stroked out every last knot and when she got to my feet I felt the most relaxed I think I had all month…I know, because I easily fell into a cat nap in which I dreamed of (and I’m 100% serious about this) chocolate chip cookies.
对于一个井喷…访问打击（342 W ^ 14街，顺便说一句14街和第八大道，纽约，NY 10014）。我就在这里第一次我前行寻找井喷将持续直到第一个婚礼的喜气（这将是对西海岸感人下来后两天！）。一个艰巨的任务，但艾琳在这里做这一点。在她的椅子上45分钟后，我有量和通过两个航班和乘车到婚礼持续了波澜。井喷开始于$ 40（我的中等长度的头发，这是50 $所以这取决于头发的类型）。
对于理发，参观...克里斯。他在髓质，但现在刷（9 E. 19th St (Between 5th and Broadway). He’s been my go-to for a while now and I loveee his precise cuts (his resume speaks for itself — he’s also worked at Bumble & Bumble and Rita Hazan!). Also, I’ve always loved Pich at沃伦特里科米在广场上，如果你想要更多的选择！
最重要的是，虽然，这个地方是放松。When I went on a Sunday afternoon, it was just me, my nail tech, Ivy, and one of their feel-good book of quotes they provide while I’m getting my nails done on their comfy couch with plush pillows — a non-traditional but welcomed way to de-stress!
