Spa owner John Masters is a true believer in the supernatural.
In 1994, stylist John Masters opened a small hair salon on Sullivan Street. Soon after, he launched a range of organic hair and skin-care products that have drawn raves from legions of fashion and beauty editors. Last fall, Masters expanded the space to house a larger salon with an apothecary full of his products in the front and a small spa in the back offering tempting treatments such as a rose and calendula hydrating facial or a bamboo and lemongrass foot scrub.
Eschewing the hectic energy and attitude of many urban salons, John Masters has succedded in creating a truly relaxing and wholesome environment. "The spa is an extension of my salon," says Masters. "It's heavenly. It's peaceful. It's fragrant. The moment you enter, you leave the everyday world behind. When you emerge, you feel beautiful and renewed.
