Nail Care Part 3 –
Pedicure Tutorial

Our wonderful nail technician Kelly Ann is back again you show how to replicate a Haven Signature Pedicure at home. 

Step 1: Add oil to your cuticles (apply with a paper towel). You can use purpose-made cuticle oil, or any oil you have handy, including coconut or even olive oil!

Step 2: Gently sand down calluses. If you don’t have a callus remover tool, a fine nail file will do.

Step 3: Use a foot scrub all over your foot, then rinse off in the tub. You can make your own with equal parts oil and white sugar.

Step 4: Moisturize with a thick lotion all over.

Step 5: Gently push back cuticles with a cuticle pusher or an orange wood stick.

Step 6: Prepare the nail for polish by cleaning and dehydrating the nail with rubbing alcohol or nail cleanser (Kelly Ann prefers rubbing alcohol).

Step 7: Clip and shape your nails.

Step 8: Lace a separator between your toes — a rolled-up tissue will do.

Step 9: Apply one layer of clear base coat to the entire nail, making sure to get the edges too.

Step 9: Add a layer of color polish, leaving a little space between the polish and skin – that helps it look neater and last longer. Clean up with a Q-tip as you go.

Step 10: Once the first coat is fully dry, add a second coat of color.

Step 11: Once the second coat is fully dry, ad a layer of clear top coat, making sure to seal the edges.

Step 13: Let your nails dry for a full 30 minutes before you put shoes on.

Nail Care Part 2 –
Manicure Tutorial

Our wonderful nail technician Kelly Ann shows you exactly how to recreate a Haven Signature Manicure at home. 

Step 1: Add oil to your cuticles and massage in gently. You can use purpose-made cuticle oil, or any oil you have handy, including olive oil!

Step 2: While the cuticle oil soaks in, file your nails to your desired shape with the fine side of an emery board.

Step 3: Gently smooth the edges of your nail at an angle with a buffer or the fine side of an emery board. You can buffer the top of the nail too if you’d like, just be sure to be very gentle — you don’t want to over-buff.

Step 4: Gently push back cuticles with a cuticle pusher or an orange wood stick. Though it’s tricky and a little risky, you can trim any excess skin very delicately with small cosmetic scissors or cuticle nippers — but please use restraint.

Step 5: Clean under nails with cuticle pusher and then remove any excess oil with a cotton pad, a cotton ball, or a tissue.

Step 6: Prepare the nail for polish by cleaning and dehydrating the nail with rubbing alcohol or nail cleanser (Kelly Ann prefers rubbing alcohol).

Step 7: Apply one layer of clear base coat to the entire nail, making sure to get the edges too.

Step 8: Add a layer of color polish, leaving a little space between the polish and skin – that helps it look neater and last longer.

Step 9: Use the cuticle pusher to remove any polish that gets on skin as you go — wiping off on a nearby paper towel.Don’t use too much polish — you want a thin and even coat.

Step 10: Allow each coat to fully dry before moving on to the next coat. The nail polish you have at home may not dry as quickly as Haven Spa polish dries, so take your time — watch a movie or listen to a podcast and relax in between coats!
Step 11: Once the first coat is fully dry, add a second coat of color.

Step 12: Once the second coat is fully dry, ad a generous layer of clear top coat, making sure to seal the edges.

Step 13: Let your nails dry for a full 30 minutes — 15 minutes at a minimum — before you go about your day.

Nail Care Part 1

Now that you can’t enjoy regular professional manicures during this time of social distancing, it’s important to maintain the health and integrity of your nails at home on your own. Here are some insider tips from our top nail technicians.


Keeping your cuticles hydrated is the most important way to keep them soft, prevent overgrowth, and prevent hang nails. Applying oil at least once a day works wonders on preserving nail and cuticle health overall. Many of our nail technicians recommend putting on hand lotion topped off with cuticle oil every night before bed. Cuticle oil works really well, but you can definitely use other kinds of oils too! We recommend coconut oil or olive oil. Typically the thicker the oil the better. Hair conditioner can also work well in a pinch!


Lightly filing your nails once a week is a good way to preserve the shape and prevent breaking. The most manageable shape is short and rounded. When they’re short they’re less likely to break, and round is usually an easier shape to achieve. Try to keep the edges and sides of your nail smooth to further prevent breaking.


If you usually like to have your ridges smoothed out, lightly go over the entire nail with a buffer about once every other week. Using a buffer is the best option, but if you do not have a buffer, very gently go over the entire nail with the softest file you have. Don’t overdo it though! Keeping the nail and cuticle hydrated is very important to preventing splitting. Applying a clear coat or nail strengthener once a week is a great way to protect the nail and give it strength.


Since most people are home, right now is the perfect time to give your nails a break from polish. It’s important to let the nail breath and allow all the lotions and oils to fully absorb into the nail. If you are finding the polish remover you have at home is not removing your polish, you may need to use pure acetone (available at stores like CVS, which offers online shopping and drive-through windows for safer delivery or pickup).

We look forward to offering you our wide selection of professional manicures and pedicures again soon. Until then, take good care.

Finding Your Haven
at Home

We miss you!

As a small local business, we are a family here at Haven Spa — that includes our wonderful clients and our fabulous talented staff, all of whom we’re so grateful for. We’re dedicated to putting our family’s health and wellbeing at the forefront. After all, that’s our founding principle here at Haven.

So after being open continuously for almost twenty years now, we made the difficult decision (prior to the mandate) to temporarily close Haven Spa for several weeks to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. This is obviously a fluid situation, one we are monitoring closely. We will adjust our plans and timeline accordingly, based on the recommendations from our government and the CDC.

We plan to reopen as soon as possible — hopefully in June. Rest assured that we will be taking all necessary precautions and our entire facility will be cleaned and disinfected during the closure.

How can we all stay connected during this challenging time? We at Haven Spa will continue to bring peace and serenity into your lives, at a time when it’s needed more than ever. Here’s what we have planned:

  • Our Spring Gift Certificate Sale of Hope: For those who can, Online Gift Certificates are a great way to give yourself or someone you care about a treat to look forward to when things calm down, while helping to keep local businesses viable during this period of instability. To that end, we are offering a HAVEN ONLINE GIFT CERTIFICATE SALE: Buy $100 Gift Card online & you’ll receive an extra $20 Gift Card free. Use code PEACE here.
  • Regular At-Home Self-Care Advice: Join us on social media — on Instagram @havenrhinebeck or on Facebook at /HavenSpaRhinebeck. We will be updating our feeds regularly with at-home self-care tips and tricks to alleviate stress and improve wellness, like instructions on self- and partner-massage and how to’s for at-home facials. Whether we’re giving advice on feeling good or finding other ways to stay positive through this difficult time, we’re looking forward to connecting with you online via social media and our Spa Blog.
  • New Spring Products Delivery: Little luxuries can go a long way toward soothing nerves and boosting hope, while helping your friendly neighborhood businesses in the process. During this time of social distancing, we’re offering 10% OFF ON ALL SPA BOUTIQUE PRODUCTS ordered by phone or email so you can still get the benefits of our excellent new spring items while weathering this storm. We will have a Haven Staff team checking emails to [email protected] and answering calls to 845-876-7369.
  • Extended Hours Upon Re-Opening: We will be offering extended hours to accommodate new and rescheduled appointments once we open Haven Spa’s doors again, as soon as possible.

We’ve been honored to have been your Haven for relaxation and rejuvenation over the past two decades. And we are dedicated to continuing to serve you, our cherished clients, from afar until we can see you again in person to deliver the exceptional, transformative services you’ve come to expect from Haven. In the meantime, stay safe, be well, and don’t forget to take the time and space to care of yourself as you take care of your loved ones.

Warm regards,
The Haven Spa Family

4 Ways to Feel More Beautiful for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to do something a little different, to go the extra mile, to put in a bit of effort — for your partner and for yourself. Remember when you first started dating: the excitement, the surprises? You would both spend time primping and prepping before a date to be sure you were looking good and feeling great! Recapture some of that magic by treating this February 14th like you did when you first got together…

Soften Up Your Skin

The winter cold and the march of time can wreak havoc on your skin. Reveal a more youthful glow with a moisturizing body treatment or a rejuvenating facial. Our Tone & Glow package, with the power of guava fruit and vitamin C, is an all-over solution that will leave your face and body feeling and looking years younger.

Give Your Lashes a Boost

Mascara isn’t your only option. The hottest trend in the eyelash industry — Lash Lift — gives you luscious, lifted lashes in the blink of an eye. Just one 20-minute professional treatment lifts your own lashes from the root, creating the illusion of dramatic length that is retained — even after a shower or swimming — for up to 12 weeks (30 min. $75). We also offer a wide range of exciting color tints that are the perfect complement to the One Shot Lash Lift. In fact, most clients will get the best results by tinting immediately after lifting (45 min. $98). For even more drama there are eyelash extensions: our certified professionals can adhere individual, lightweight lashes to your existing lashes to create the look you desire, from natural to dramatic. It’s instant glamour, with no need for mascara for up to six weeks! (full set, $199)

Relax, Love

It’s hard to focus on romance if you’re tense and stressed. Treat yourself to a much-needed stress-reducing massage before a romantic evening out to get in the right mind and body set.  Our Signature Swedish (60 min. $95) is one or our most popular, but if you really need to unwind, try a Deep Swedish (60 min. $105) or even a Deep Tissue (60 min. $110).

Add a Splash of Color

Make a statement with a gorgeous manicure and/or pedicure — you can’t go wrong with a bold red this month. It’s a quick & simple way to feel even more beautiful. Review our extensive nail services to find the one right for you.

Call us at 845-876-7369 to book your pre-date appointments now before spaces fill up. If you schedule yours on Valentine’s Day Weekend (any time Friday the 14th through Sunday the 16th), we’ll treat you to a complimentary glass of champagne and a selection of decadent chocolates in our lovely spa decorated for the occasion in roses.
