An ornate chandelier with dangling glass teardrops, an orchid plant with soft white petals, and a wall of tufted gold fabric greet guests as they step into Mist Nail Boutique and Day Spa. Patrons relax in modern, oversize square pedicure chairs with bolsters, pillows, and a teddy bear to cuddle. The sophistication continues in private rooms that host massages, facials, and azulene-waxing services, which work to minimize redness and irritation on sensitive skin.
Bella's L.I. Day Spa's mission is to renew clients' beauty, and it does so with a variety of classic and clinical aesthetic services. A certified aesthetician offers traditional spa services, such as airbrush tans, makeup applications, and facial and body waxing. For specific skin problems, such as fine lines and acne, the aesthetician employs G.M. Collin and clinical-based treatments, such as collagen-infusion sessions and chemical peels.
More than 30 years after its inception, Cactus Salon & Spa and its team of continually educated stylists have not lost their edge?they earned the Long Island Press's designation as Best Hair Salon and Best Day Spa in 2011 and 2012. It's not surprising, then, that the salon has enjoyed such impressive growth over the years, with more than two dozen separate spa and salon locations.
Although hair is still the focus?stylists craft 'dos that reflect everyday ease or fashion-forward thinking?the repertoire has expanded to include everything from nail treatments and massages to permanent cosmetics and laser services. Since the roster is so broad, many clients take advantage of Cactus Club memberships, which give them the flexibility to try multiple services and products by deactivating the force fields between treatment rooms and granting a 33% discount on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
