Rani Houlis

Rani Houlis, Department Head of the Berkeley Heights, New Jersey LifeSpa, can explain what makes this spa special better than anyone.

Added Value for Moms
As a working mom, Houlis knows how important it is for her clients to fit in me time — and also that relaxation can only be achieved when you know your little one is in good hands. “Moms can enjoy me time relaxing and pampering themselves while their children are supervised at our Kids Activity Center,” Houlis explains. With two free hours of childcare included in every spa service, “We give moms plenty of time to rejuvenate, enabling them to distress from the responsibilities a busy mom has on her plate.”

Spa Week Treatments
This year, we have three fabulous $50 treatments being offered by LifeSpa during April Spa Week, so we asked Houlis to share her favorite. “I am most excited about the All Over Color with Cut. This is the first time the LifeSpa has ever offered this service during SpaWeek.” If you’re due for a salon visit, or looking for a makeover, you can’t beat the price tag of $50 for a cut AND color.

Top of the Line Products
LifeSpa uses Wella, Bumble & Bumble and Kerastase products during salon treatments, so you’re treated to the best of the best. Facials are no different, as the aestheticians pick out a perfectly tailored regimen of Murad and Phytomer products for each client.

“Some of my favorite hair products are Kerastase’s Oleo Relax Slim Crème and Bumble & Bumble’s Brilliantine,” Houlis told us. “When it comes to my face, Phytomer’s Perfect Visage Cleansing Milk helps me start my day and I can’t be without Murad’s Hydro Dynamic Ultimate Moisturizer.”
