Though many Manhattan spas follow the reliable model of soft lighting, indigenous music, and soothing colors, Nina’s European Day Spa stays true to its Russian roots. Just beyond the lobby is a small waiting area that feels like a Brighton Beach living room, complete with fake flowers, marble floors, and a plate of assorted cookies. Inside the seven treatment rooms, however, it’s all about serious skin care—from deep-cleansing facials and anti-aging treatments to firming and toning therapies—at affordable prices. Owner Nina Kaylyakov has been in the business for 35 years and her long-time clients have followed her from location to location. Thanks to the current spot, midtown working girls also pop in on their lunch breaks. Five friendly aestheticians, mostly Russian, administer oxygen, glycolic, and algomask facials, along with fat-reducing aromatherapy and endermotherapy; massage choices run from Swedish to hot stone and four-hand (there’s a couples room, too). Nina’s is known for waxing (“They’re the best, and so nice,” says one client); laser hair removal and threading are also offered. Add in tanning, manicures, and pedicures, and Nina’s has nearly every beauty need covered, plus a full stock of G.M. Collin products. Bridal parties are welcome, and special packages run throughout the year.
