The stylists at Mijo Hair Salon have terrific hands but even better ears. Before doling out any of their keratin smoothing treatments, precision haircuts, or hair color repair services, the team consults with each client. During the consultation, they listen as the client describes their deepest hair desires and lifestyle while they assess the client’s facial shape and hair texture. With this information, the team administers chic styles sprinkled with Moroccanoil, Milbon, and Fixx hair products.

At Angel Touch Laser, Noelle, a spa technician, uses advanced technology to help clients attain younger-looking physiques and heightened self-confidence. Her signature treatment, laser hair removal, uses heat sent from a laser device to remove hair and discourage future growth. Noelle applies the treatment to many areas of the body, including the face, legs, arms, and Brazilian zone. Through wrinkle-reduction procedures, photo-rejuvenation, and UV teeth-whitening treatments, she further keeps clients looking young and beautiful.
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 2012. It's not surprising, then, that the salon has enjoyed such impressive growth over the years, with more than two dozen locations now blanketing most of Long Island. Though hair is still the focus—stylists craft hairdos that reflect either 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 of services is so broad, many clients take advantage of Cactus Club memberships, which give them the flexibility to try multiple services by deactivating the force fields between treatment rooms and granting a 33% discount on products and services on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Licensed medical aesthetician Phyllis Gasparri performs each facial treatment at Skin Perfect, drawing on more than 25 years of experience as she treats acne and wrinkles during services that emphasize clinical approaches to skincare. Among her weapons of choice are lasers—which she uses to reduce scar tissue and remove hair and tattoos—and exfoliation tools such as microdermabrasion wands and chemical-peel solutions. To keep up their progress, clients can take home products from SkinCeuticals and Cell Renewal Systems or purchase one of the shop’s own line of mini facial steamers, which sterilize and clean the face while discreetly opening envelopes within a 50-yard radius.
