I was one of FIVE women in a Girls Spa Day party and when I was told the treatments were at a local salon I thought "oh no, not another bunch of hair dressers taking turns doing massages and facials trying to accommdate a large party! But wasn't I shocked when I entered the exciting world of Bernard's. Yes, there were oodles of gorgeous tiny stylists clad in black and white whisking off the well-heeled ladies of Cherry Hill to get their hair done BUT to the left of all the salon activity was a mysterious glass door to the Spa. Upon entering, the attendants were all very professional, the rooms clean and smelling Spa-rific with the prerequisite zen music and glowing lights. All my fears were swept away when I was treated to a mind blowing deep tissue massage from the Power House named Stacy. Only on her 2nd day, she had no trouble getting half on the table with me and throwing me over one of her knees to do some extra work on some rather tough spots on my shoulders and back. Allowing me to collect myself, I put on a spa robe and was gently led into a facial room where Ashley went to work. I usually HATE facials and have a notoriously sensitive face but whatEVER she used on my and with her seamless style, I really loved the hour long process. Because I enjoyed the treatments so much, the next day I made an appointment to get my hair cut with the adorable Kim. Surrounded by a wedding party getting all sorts of updo's that would make a beauty contest judge proud, Kim gave me a sleek and modern cut. Afterwards I got a little bikini wax by a lovely Russian girl who was quick, sympathetic and thorough.
Bernard's would easily fit in some avenue in NYC or LA but her it was next to a Jewish Deli in a shopping center in the 'burbs. They are obviously loved by the community as they were incredibly busy but by all accounts from the receptionist, this was their 'slow time'. A worthwhile event, day and destination!
