Services offered

Speed services, including blowouts, make-up applications, manicures and waxes, that take under 30 minutes, are offered on the street level, appropriately named SpeedUpStairs. Signature services, including facials, massages, haircuts and colour, are offered on the lower level, aptly named . In addition to providing the most effective pampering treatments, The Red Door is home to Elizabeth Arden’s global beauty boutique and features high-tech skin care and colour products from the Elizabeth Arden and Red Door Spa Professional lines. The boutique also offers two exciting technologies: Custom Color Foundation and the Custom Skin Reader.

Custom Color Foundation is Elizabeth Arden’s exclusive technology, designed to perfectly blend a custom foundation matched exactly to every client’s skin tone. It not only guarantees a perfect match, but the formulation can be customised based on each individual’s needs and preferences. It offers three coverage levels (sheer, medium or full), two finish choices (matte or natural) and the ability to personalise the formula depending on skin type (dry, normal or oily). It can also provide product recommendations and ‘make-up looks’ based on each unique skin tone reading.

Custom Skin Reader is a tool that provides detailed facial and skin feature analysis. It analyses visible pigmentation levels, subsurface sun damage, visible pores, crow’s feet, the number and depth of wrinkles, and skin texture. Most importantly, it provides detailed product recommendations based on the client’s unique analysis and skin concerns, and tracks the progression of skin health.
As of now there are 60 technicians comprising of aestheticians, massage therapists and more. The Red Door Spa operates over 28 locations in the US.
