Spring in Brooklyn is about drinking outside, in as little clothing as possible, charged with a sense of renewal and possibility about life. Especially after all these rough winter months, we might need a little more than cold beer and sun on our faces to recover. Brokelyn is here to help by offering three springtastic Wiliamsburg beauty deals between now and May 15. Here are three spots to freshen your skin, brighten your hair, and soothe your muscles before venturing out and attempting to mingle with other humans again. Starting today through May 15, first time clients can mention Brokelyn at Beehive Salon, Massage Williamsburg and Skin by Molly to receive big discounts.
The Beehive Salon
115 N. 7th St. (between Berry St. and Wythe Ave.), Williamsburg
Deal: 20% off haircuts and color treatments for new clients who mention Brokelyn through May 15
This Williamsburg hair salon for men and women has a retro rocker vibe that translates into hair cuts that are sassy and skillful. Owner and “Queen Bee” stylist Maleina is as down to earth as she is experienced, with more than 20 years working in NYC salons. Many of the stylists have done hair for fashion shoots and Broadway productions, lending an added flair and a bit of glam to their cuts. Curly-haired girls will be happy with stylists Carla, Li and Eileen who are all Devachan certified. The salon’s open space with high ceilings and ample windows letting in natural light opens up into a backyard where you can relax while you’re waiting for your highlights to set. On Thursday nights, the ‘hive offers complimentary drinks, which have ranged from beer and wine to pina coladas and pomegrante margaritas. Check out the Beehive’s Down Time Spa downstairs, where you can book a facial, wax, massage and mani-pedis.
169 Wythe Ave. (between N. 5th and N. 6th Streets), Suite 202
By appointment only
Deal: $20 off any massage for new clients who mention Brokelyn by May 15
This therapeutic massage studio offers Swedish massage, deep tissue, prenatal and a signature one hour back, neck and shoulder massage, so you can select which type to best target your sore spots. For each one you can choose between lavender aromatherapy oil or unscented grapeseed oil. The impressive team of NY-state licensed massage therapists has worked with physical therapy clients, cancer patients, dance companies, and has training in practices like acupuncture, reiki, yoga and pilates, in addition to their range of individual specialties. Clients cite their personable and knowledgable approach as reasons to keep coming back. It’s a good idea to get there a little early to talk with your massage therapist about what in particular ails you so he or she can tailor the massage accordingly. Owner Rachel Beider says one of her favorite parts about her job is seeing a client who comes in cranky or stressed but leaves smiling and relaxed. That could be you!
Skin by Molly
169 Wythe Ave. (between N. 6th and N. 7th Streets), Suite #107
By appointment only
Deal: $30 off any facial for new clients who mention Brokelyn by May 15
Founded by Molly Lamb, an Atlanta native with a great smile and a warm presence, Skin by Molly is the spot for a personalized, laid-back facial. Inspired to be an esthetician from her own struggles with her skin, Molly will listen to your concerns, without judging, and tailor treatment to your specific skin needs. All of her facials are conducted with natural-based peels and scrubs, like the “Radiance Facial” which employs a tourmaline-charged (mineral-based) mask or the “Back Facial” which implements a clay mask to exfoliate clogged pores. The “anti-aging facial” removes dead skin cells with a plant-based peel and re-moisturizes with a blend of herbs and oils. Edison bulbs and hard wood floors create an intimate setting for therapy with a skin expert who feels like an old friend. You’ll be in good hands at Skin by Molly. Think about it like this: if you can’t be nice to your face, how can you expect anybody else to be?
