The Brazilian beauty services and techniques are incomparable! We’ve tried a few, offered at Maria Bonita Salon & Spa, and completely loved them all.
We have to confess that we’re pretty picky when it comes to beauty products and specially services. A good product can be copied, but a good service is very hard to replicate.
Maria Bonita Spa & Salon was founded in 2003 by Fernanda Lacerda and is co-owned by Manuela Giannini. It has been considered the to-go-salon in Soho for all the Brazilian beauties that live or come to New York City.
The other day we experimented a few services we were curious about and after the fantastic results, decided to share it with you.
We started with a fabulous Gold & Diamond Facial that lasted over 1 hour. We were “taken to heaven” and brought back. This treatment is used to “treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage and stretch marks. It helps to thicken your collagen, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, which result in younger looking complexion.” Virginia de Oliveira was the expert facialist behind the technique.
After the facial, we had a manicure. It’s hard to explain how different Brazilian professional do manicure services, versus the NY spots we’ve been to.
Believe us, it’s as perfect at is can get, and it definitely lasts much longer.
Last, but surely not least, we finished with a blow out. This, again, was amazing!
We haven’t tried the Wax, but we’ve heard miracles about it by friends and powerful women we know. So, if you’re looking for a waxing spot, there is surely nothing like the Brazilian Wax.
To wrap up we do have to say that, different from the NYC style, Brazilian spots allow you to take your time and relax. Nothing is rushed, so every moment is fully indulged.
All professionals were fantastic, super caring and hot hearted – like every Brazilian we know!
They recently launched a second spot, called MB45. It’s the perfect place for powerful women that live the New York hustle life. In other words, perfect for women that are always on the go. You can schedule a quick 45min blow up and manicure with them, for only $65.
MB45 offers manicures, blowouts, braids and make-up. We love all Brazilian beauty services.
