Conversation hums as traffic remains steady in one of New York 's long-established neighborhood spas. Regular customers recount the news of the day and nail technicians buzz to each other in Spanish. The laid back staff welcomes walk-ins and appointments, catering to its busy city clientele. For an inexpensive, authentic New York spa experience, the Randee Elaine Spa & Laser Center offers reliable services for prices that other salons may not want advertised. With vintage wood paneling and worn benches, the interior flaunts her age shamelessly. Located in the West Village , Randee Elaine is one of a handful of laser cosmetic centers that has been in business for over 15 years. Their certified specialists and aestheticians offer free consultations and offer low-priced packages for all skin types.
Headlining the list of spa services is the combination manicure/pedicure for $25. This popular package earns its reputation for more than just the price. The pedicure chairs include a built-in massage with the remote control at the patron's disposal. During the long soak in the foot bath, the water is illuminated by a colorful lightshow, after which the feet are scrubbed, moisturized, buffed, polished, and dried, ensuring that the work is thorough and luxurious. The same attention to detail is given to the hands, with a French manicure upgrade available for $4. For those who are short on time, an $8 manicure or pedicure is a common buy for both men and women, especially in the height of sandal season.
With the friendly staff, thorough service, and low prices, Randee Elaine is the perfect stop whether you're a local or just in for the weekend. My own French manicure lasted for over a week without a single chip, and I have my technician, Gladys, to thank for it.
