Are you preparing for a major occasion such as a holiday party, anniversary dinner, or your dream wedding? If so, consider booking a professional makeup service at our Bergen County day spa in order to make your special day even more special. Here is a look at why you should prepare for a big occasion with a trip to our makeup studio:
Avoid Frequent Touchups
There are few things more frustrating for a woman on a special night than having to retouch her makeup every two hours. You can avoid this bothersome problem by placing yourself in the hands of one of our skilled makeup artists. Professionals can utilize tricks of the trade and high-quality products to ensure that your makeup remains fresh and glamorous throughout the event.
Achieve a More Dramatic Look
Special occasions such as galas, dinner parties, and bachelorette parties are often excellent opportunities for you to experiment with your makeup. With help from one of our day spa's makeup artists, you can achieve a striking cat eye, a fabulous red lip, or another hot makeup trend that you've been wanting to try but lack the experience to execute.
Save Yourself Time and Energy
Booking a professional makeup application at the makeup studio is also ideal for freeing up a large chunk of your day and taking a load of stress off of your shoulders. Instead of spending an extra hour or two trying to apply your makeup while balancing other commitments like speaking with caterers or other vendors involved in the planning of your special occasion, sit back, relax, and leave the hard work to a professional.

Massage rejuvenates the body and soothes aches and pains. Spending a day at the spa can provide relief from pain associated with a variety of conditions, from muscle tightness and spasms to injuries. Healthy communication between you and your therapist will ensure that your needs are met during your session.
Explaining Your Wants and Needs
Although your massage therapist is trained to soothe muscle tension and promote healing, each person’s massage needs and preferences are unique. To ensure a positive experience, it’s essential to talk with your massage therapist before, during, and after your massage. Explaining your expectations will help your therapist provide the most effective experience. If you plan to attend multiple massage sessions, discussing the massage after the fact will help your therapist address your needs more quickly and effectively during your next visit. Don’t forget to discuss any injuries or recent surgery you may have had so that care may be taken around these areas.
Adjusting Your Massage Experience
If you feel uncomfortable or would like to change the experience at any time during your massage, talk to your therapist immediately. There is no need to receive a massage that doesn’t meet your needs or involves pressure that is too hard or weak. Letting your massage therapist know what is or isn’t working for you during your massage allows her to change her technique immediately and improve your treatment. Additionally, don’t be afraid to ask for environmental changes as well—if your therapist is playing music or using scented oils that you don’t prefer, speak up to ensure that you can fully relax and enjoy your massage.
The Fountain Spa of Bergen County provides a variety of massage experiences to relax and refresh your body and mind. Visit our website to learn more about the benefits of massage and to explore our spa and massage packages. Call us at (201) 327-5155 to schedule your spa experience or purchase a gift certificate for a special someone.

What are permanent cosmetics?
Permanent cosmetics, also called permanent makeup, micropigmentation, and dermal pigmentation, refer to the process of applying pigment into the second (dermal) layer of the skin.
Why consider permanent cosmetics?
There are many reasons to consider permanent cosmetic services, but most importantly, it restores color and definition to absent or sparse eyebrows, softly defines or dramatically accents eyes, and enhances the color and shape of the lips. Permanent cosmetics help achieve a finished appearance for timeless, effortless beauty.
Is it really permanent?
Longevity of the appearance of permanent cosmetic makeup can be affected by sun exposure, skin products, and the natural aging process. Typically the application lasts 2-3 years.
Does it hurt?
Although everyone’s pain sensitivity varies, the application of permanent makeup involves minor discomfort. Topical anesthetics are applied before and throughout the procedure.
Are the procedures safe?
Permanent cosmetics have been safely applied throughout the ages in the quest for beauty. Pigments are used in permanent cosmetics and have an extensive record of safety. Used in both medical and artistic fields for over 20 years, their safety is undisputed.
How long does a procedure take?
The length of each procedure varies; most procedures generally take 2-2 1/2 hours.
Can permanent cosmetics be removed?
No, not easily, if at all. Laser and other removal or lightening techniques have aided in removal in many cases; however, the results of these methods have not proven to be consistent.

Airbrush tanning offers a great way to get that gorgeous glow of tanned skin without the damage that comes from spending hours in the sun. You’ll get the best, longest-lasting results by making sure your skin is properly prepared for your airbrush tanning session.
Exfoliate your skin thoroughly to remove dead skin cells before treatment. This will allow the tanning ingredients to absorb into your skin so that your bronzed look lasts longer. Avoid using lotion, deodorant, perfume, or other skin products before your appointment so there will be no barrier between the tanning solution and your skin. Don’t wax or shave within 24 hours of your appointment and avoid these activities for as long as possible after your tan in order to prolong your results. If it’s raining when you head to the day spa, pack boots and an umbrella so the water doesn’t strip your tan.
At The Fountain Spa, our airbrush-tanning artist has worked with the New York Jets Flight Crew and countless beauty queens, body builders, and dance teams. For the most natural sunless tanning results around, make an appointment at our day spa by calling (201) 327-5155.
