Our Favorite Beauty and Wellness Services Have Reopened in New York

In recent weeks, many of our go-to beauty and wellness services across New York City have reopened in the wake of COVID, with new safety measures in place to protect both customers and staff members.
Some have limited capacity, while others are requiring masks for visitors–no matter the extra precautions these mainstays are taking, we couldn't be happier to see some of our favorite spots reopen! Find out what to expect at these beauty and wellness services below.

Glamsquad: The in-home beauty service, which offers blowouts, haircuts, makeup, and nail care, reopened in late June. Glamsquad beauty professionals bring their own mask and gloves to every appointment, in accordance with CDC guidelines, and every appointment takes place in the comfort of your home.
