An event aimed at promoting Sunnyside’s many salons and personal care businesses is taking off this week, with an array of specials to be offered at participating locales.

The Sunnyside Spa and Salon Fest, a first for the neighborhood, goes from Aug. 17 through Aug. 26, and includes 11 salons, spas, and barber shops offering $30 deals on select services.

Nelson’s Barbershop on Queens Blvd., for example, will offer a spa fest package that includes a black mask and a choice of a haircut or chair shave.

At Pink Nails, the neighborhood’s newest nail salon, a spa mani and pedi will be available, while the Blush & Glow Day Spa is offering either a chocolate Brazilian and underarm wax, a 40-minute facial, or a hair cut, treatment, and blow dry.

Services at other locales include eyebrow and lip threading, hair coloring, and hair cut packages for parents and children.

The fest is organized by Sunnyside Shines, the BID that aims to bolster business in the neighborhood.

“We have a great variety of personal care businesses right here in the neighborhood, for residents of all ages and genders,” said Jaime-Faye Bean, executive director of Sunnyside Shines. “Sunnyside Spa and Salon Fest encourages residents to treat themselves to a new haircut or spa service right here in Sunnyside—you don’t have to travel far to look and feel really great.”

The event also includes a contest, where fest-goers can enter for a chance to score gift certificates of $100, $75, or $50 to the participating Spa and Salon Fest business of their choice.

Those that make use of the spa fest specials will receive a flyer with a sticker on it from the participating business, and can then drop off the flyer at Sunnyside Shines’ office or leave it with the business to be entered into the prize drawing. Three winners will be randomly selected after Aug. 31.

Picking up on Roxy’s rhetorical question: I think this is an effort by the legit spas to clearly distinguish themselves from the. . . others.


Does that include the “spa” that recently opened right next door to the headquarters of Sunnyside Shines on 43rd Street?

What’s next a drugstore fest with Duane Reade, CVS and Rite Aid? A barfest? Oh we already have that it’s called St. Patrick’s Day.
