Style File: New You
If you want to start the new year off with a new look, we've got some new spots to get gorgeous hair and glowing faces worthy of an A-list star. 7's Belkys Nerey shows us the latest beauty trends in tonight's Style File.
WSVN -- It's probably the only bar in town that's dry.
Nope, we're not talking about liquor, but a Blowdry Bar that'll give you lovely locks.
Sandirose Magder, Blo Midtown: "The concept is very simple. It's wash, blow and go."
At Blo in Midtown, they focus on one thing: Amazing blowouts.
Sandirose Magder, Blo Midtown: "We don't cut, we don't color. We think it's important to pick what you're good at, and do it well."
Gals get a blowout and a fantastic style for just $35, which is almost unheard of in this city.
Sandirose Magder, Blo Midtown: "We consider Blo an affordable luxury. It doesn't matter how long your hair is, how thick it is, $35 for everybody."
You can flip through their hair menu and choose from seven different styles.
Pony up for the "Hunt Club," which is the perfect ponytail.
Or glam it up with the "Holly Would."
Carly Bramhill, Chief Stylist, Blo: "The 'Holly Would' is going to be our most popular look. It's Victoria Secret-esque: very sexy, flirty and bouncy."
Braids are super hot right now, so you can give your hairstyle a twist with the 'Boho Braid.'
Or go sultry with the 'Sex, Hugs and Rock 'n Roll.'
Carly Bramhill, Chief Stylist, Blo: "It's going to be your Beyonce look, very curly. Also, some people like the Farrah Fawcett curls that kind of spiral around your face."
If you want skin that glistens like an A-list star, head over to ESPA at the Acqualina Resort in Sunny Isles Beach.
They've got a new machine for the ultimate anti-aging facial.
Kim Cook, ESPA, Lead Therapist: "This is the Casey Ultimate. It's cutting-edge technology for a non-surgical face lift. Jennifer Lopez has bought this herself, and she uses it not only on the face but the whole body."
The procedure starts with a unique type of microdermabrasion.
Kim Cook, ESPA, Lead Therapist: "It's almost a fine sanding. It's removing skin without any type of suction, so no damage to the pores. The LED lights: the red stimulates collagen, blue lights help with bacteria, so it's very healing."
Next up, your therapist uses these wands to deliver a micro current to lift and firm the skin.
Kim Cook, ESPA, Lead Therapist: "We are working 30 muscles in the face, so we're sending a current to the muscle to hold it, and then program it so it stays where it needs to stay."
The finishing touches are a collagen mask and more micro current to plump up the skin.
They did half of this woman's face, and you can see a big difference on the treated side, which is on the left side of the screen.
Kim Cook, ESPA, Lead Therapist: "You can clearly see the difference about how the one eyebrow is raised from the other eyebrow. Here, you have one deep line. This one is barely there. Even this one line right here."
So now you're ready to face the new year with a new look.
