Greenwich Village, it’s time to treat yourself! New York City has hit Phase 3 of the New York Forward reopening plan, meaning that many businesses offering personal care services are once again open for business. While services are limited to those that allow customers to wear face coverings, there are still plenty of ways for you to bliss out at your favorite Greenwich Village salon or spa. And after the stress of the last few months, you definitely deserve a little break.
Before you head to the salon, there are a few guidelines to keep in mind:
- If you are sick or experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, STAY HOME.
- Many salons are operating by appointment only. Call your provider or check their website to learn more about their policies and book a slot.
- Wear a face mask or face covering inside at all times.
- Come to your appointment alone. Most salons will not allow you to bring a family member or friend along if they are not also receiving a service.
- Check with the salon to see if they have any further policies in place for customers.
In celebration of these grand re-openings, here are a few of our favorite personal care services at local salons and spas.
Ultimate Spa Pedicure
Let’s face it: your feet could use a little love right now. Treat them right with a 50-minute spa pedicure at BareLuxury. This treatment features a natural sea salt soak, sugar scrub for exfoliation, mud masque for pore cleansing, light massage, collagen treatment and more. Your feet will look and feel brand new as you stroll out of the salon.
Eyebrows looking a little out-of-control after months in quarantine? Tame those stray hairs with a professional waxing at Maya Salon! This long-lasting hair removal treatment will leave your eyebrows looking neat and stylish for the next four to six weeks.
Reiki Energy Healing Treatment
For those unfamiliar, reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing in which hands are placed just off the body in an effort to transmit Universal Life Energy to the client. The practice is known to reduce stress and provide deep relaxation, something many of us could use right now. Head to Vada Spa to learn more about this popular (and safe!) treatment. First time spa clients can also get 20% off their service with their Village Access card.
“Head Spa” Scalp Treatment
Best known for their superior hairstyling services, Salon V is now offering a new scalp treatment that will leave you feeling rejuvenated. Think of the “Head Spa” treatment as a facial for your scalp: your technician will analyze your skin, cleanse the scalp of dirt and oil buildup and then finish things off with a soothing and hydrating massage. The 60-minute service includes a blowout and can be booked as a standalone treatment or as an add-on to other salon services. And be sure to use your Village Access card for 20% off your service!
