Angela Rosen opened the doors of Seattle’s renowned Penelope & The Beauty Bar 10 years ago. Located inside the historic Fairmont Olympic Hotel in the heart of downtown, Penelope & The Beauty Bar quickly became Seattle’s most in demand day spa. In 2016, Angela brought the leading services from Penelope & The Beauty Bar to a new market, creating the ultimate destination for customized skin care in downtown Manhattan with DAPHNE Studio. The team’s specialty is blending the philosophy and techniques of European skin care with the most up-to-date technology on the market. Most notably, the traditional Sugaring is a very unique service not offered by most waxing and sugaring locations in NYC.
Both spas carry premier French skincare brand Biologique Recherche and feature highly clinical and customized, results-driven facial and body treatments, including body wraps and body polishes, for both men and women. All of the spa’s estheticians are carefully selected and European-trained, bringing years of experience to its clientele.
The spa treatments include European facials and non-surgical face-lifts, utilizing the best micro-current machines in the industry. Our French contouring + detoxifying wrap and body
scrubs, along with the body-toning ion magnum can help with improvement in skin texture and weight loss. Their range of bodywork consists of several massage modalities, such as prenatal
