A true innovator of her time, Elizabeth Arden began her career as the head of a cosmetics company, but by the 1920’s she was opening spas across the world. Though Red Door Spas was originally a separate entity, the Elizabeth Arden Company bought a controlling interest in Red Door and opened a co-branded flagship location in New York City’s Union Square, which reinvigorated the classic brand.
This new Red Door concept is the modern equivalent of a women’s club, combining uptown class with downtown cool, all within an aspirational space—one that weaves comfortably into the customer’s busy, multi-tasking life. This is expressed with the use of clean, modern fixtures and furniture set into traditional architectural vocabulary of crown moldings and a coffered ceiling.
The 2,500 square foot first floor of the spa offers express services like manicures, make-up application, and hair blow-outs. In the 7,500 square foot lower level, guests are offered full-service treatments like haircuts, waxing, facials, and massage.
