However, Cornelia Zicu, the chief creative officer for Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa, is pretty much one of the biggest names in the spa industry, and for good reason—she has perfected the luxury facial.
Cornelia first landed on the spa scene when she opened her store, Cornelia Day Resort in New York, in 2005. That spa has since been closed and in 2008, Cornelia joined Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa, “where over the past five years she’s virtually transformed its vision,” according to Cosmetic Executive Women, Inc., a nonprofit comprised of the top names in the beauty biz.
Since 2008, Cornelia has been busy in the boardrooms, but now she is back in the treatment rooms, getting hands on with clients that have been waiting patiently for her return. Apparently, women requesting private facials were stopping Cornelia in the street.
Alas, now at Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa’s newly opened boutique spa at The Chatwal Hotel in Manhattan, spa-goers can experience the Red Door Grand Debut Facial by Cornelia ($1,000). It’s a two-hour treatment performed by Cornelia herself and another top technician and is tailored specifically to your skin to boost collagen and circulation. This bespoke facial is a one-of-a-kind experience and has starlets and regular women alike knocking down that Red Door
