Recently I had the pleasure of stopping by the Asanda Aveda Spa Lounge in NYC’s Soho district for a Caribbean mani/pedi (my hands and feet still feel soft!). Up on the third floor, nestled away from the shopping mayhem on the streets of Soho below, you enter a peaceful oasis filled with white furniture, white flowers, and flooded with bright light. The little getaway has only existed for about a year, but has become a place that women go to to get more than just a beauty treatment, but an escape from the stress of the city and a day of relaxation. It was actually created with the idea of a 1950s salon in mind, where friends would come (sans iPhones) every weekend and spend hours socializing—getting actual face time with their friends—and beauty services for a totally reasonable price.
Sounds lovely, right? Of course. We know how important it is to make time for such things. But let’s be honest: With our busy lives, spending a whole day at the salon is not always feasible, especially during the holiday season. Enter Asanda’s ‘Blow Out and Go Out,’ all the beauty services you need in just one hour. For $40 (regularly $100) you will receive a Hair Spa Treatment, a 20-minute Asanda Signature Facial Treatment, and a Blowout. It’s perfect before heading to the last of your holiday parties or out on New Year’s Eve (the last day it’s available).
If you’re more into the former idea of spending the day, or at least a few hours, letting your feet rest from all that Soho shopping, Asanda offers a Luxury Sunday package as well. For $99, you will get to choose two spa services and receive champagne and Godiva chocolates while you (and hopefully your girls) lounge. Sounds pretty fab to me!

Betty Davis took special care of her skin, especially the skin around her eyes. Along with a nightly routine of placing cucumbers over her eyes, she would layer petroleum jelly under her eyes to prevent dark circles and puffiness. Aveda’s Green Science line incorporates organic argon oil in a 6 -product line to reduce visible lines and wrinkles, and firm and lift the skin.
