Bioelements announced that the professional section of its website www.bioelements.com is now open to all licensed estheticians. Previously available only to Bioelements partnership spas, it is now available for any licensed esthetician to keep up with the latest news from the company. On the professional section of the website, licensed estheticians can read skincare articles, get up to speed on the latest trends, download class workbooks, educate themselves on proper business practices, and learn Bioelements professional treatments by watching step-by-step videos. “The amount of esthetic knowledge on Bioelements.com is virtually endless, and we’re adding more to it every day,” says Callie Lushina, vice president of marketing. “That’s why we’re so excited to open our online doors to all licensed estheticians. It’s the go-to spot to learn everything from professional skincare basics to the latest industry breakthroughs.”
Opening today, the sleek Trump Soho is offering serenity seekers a dose of urban renewal in a decidedly chic setting. Located where Soho, the West Village, and Tribeca meet, the Trump is perfectly situated for travelers who are visiting for either business or pleasure. Still to come this summer is the hotel’s luxury spa, which will be outfitted with private spa suites, as well as indoor and outdoor lounges. Offering a true Turkish experience, the 11,000-square-foot spa will also feature male and female hammams, as well as exclusive treatments, such as the 90-minute Spirited City Body Food treatment, designed to combat the effects of city living. The Spirited City Hands Remedy relieves those who are addicted to their Blackberry, while the Spirited City Neck, Back, and Shoulder Massage targets areas of the body where tension takes over. Want to enjoy spa-ing at the Trump soon? No worries. Select spa services will be available en suite until the spa officially opens its doors. We’ll have more on The Spa at Trump Soho in an upcoming issue.
“Pioneering Rams (March 21-April 19) will likely be attracted to services that they haven’t heard of or tried before, as this satisfies their desire to have a multitude of different experiences. Additionally, as the now-or-never Rams appreciate instant gratification, they will appreciate spa therapies that provide them with noticeable differences in mind and/or body after just one session. Fiery spirited, they’ll usually gravitate toward treatments that are active rather than passive. Remember that Aries clients are straightforward and tell it like it is and appreciate when others do the same.”—Stephanie Gailing
