There’s nothing like a bit of pampering to make your vacation feel truly amazing! Here are some of the best places in NYC to treat yourself:
- Drybar — Located in Manhattan, this blow-dry hair salon chain will be an amazing place to give your hair all the love it deserves. Here, you can try out one of the many signature hair styles, such as the wavy “Mai Tai” or the topknot “Up-tini”. Best of all, you can sip a glass of wine or cocktails as you wait for your stylist to be available. All in all, it’s an experience like no other!
- Mermaid Spa –– Located in Brooklyn, this Russian bathhouse is the place for serious relaxation. There are no frills or extras with this bathhouse, but you’ll love the affordable entry fee and the simple ambience. You can opt for an olive branch massage (getting beaten with an olive branch while sweating in a steam room), or you can simply soak in the steam before leaping into the ice-cold pool to shock your system and purge toxins. If you’re a food connoisseur, you’ll have to try the Russian meals prepared and served here.
- Pure Qi Regimen Spa –– Located in Brooklyn, this Greenpoint spa is one of the best places to get a deep tissue massage. Pain and suffering aside, the deep tissue massages here will make you feel like you’re walking on a cloud once it’s over. It’s certainly not the most affordable spa in the city, but it’s one to visit if you’ve got deep muscle aches that won’t go away. For those who spend too many hours on their feet or hunched over a desk, this is the spa for you!
