On a scale of one to ten — one being that just-back-from-vacay glow and ten being that “I need a cocktail” scowl — you’re about a fifteen. But that’s nothing a day at Maria Bonita, the Nolita beauty spot run by Fernanda Lacerda, can’t fix.

The Place
Maria Bonita is like the Tom Hanks of the beauty world: versatile and good at everything it does. The salon and spa offers hair, nail, and waxing specialties and even boasts a fifteen-minute Brazilian. Specialized treatments include a Bye-Bye Cellulite massage; a skin-clearing glycolic facial; and a deep-conditioning treatment, called “hair surgery,” that defrizzes, detangles, and de-uglifies your tresses. Performed by the salon’s chatty gurus, the services are tailored to get optimal results within a warm and social environment.

The Offers

Choose from a Brazilian mani/pedi, which softens skin and fortifies nails; a half-hour massage; a Brazilian facial, which cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and soothes; and two Brazilians, to keep you looking like a perfect ten in a bathing suit. [Daily Candy]
