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.
"Owned by a sweet local woman, the atmosphere created in Ri Jon is a very friendly one," according to the Deer Park-North Babylon Patch. The friendly atmosphere in the salon today is the same one that has been attracting clients—women, men, and children—for more than 40 years. Inside, the salon's plants, warm colors, and pictures of the family humidifier create a homey, inviting ambiance. Affable stylists add to that warm atmosphere as they cut, color, and highlight hairdos and perform makeup applications for women and shaving services for men. The salon also carries an extensive selection of haircare and body-care products including Rusk, Kenra, Moroccanoil, and Paul Mitchell.
Were it not for the sweet scent of pomade and the constant buzzing of clippers, it would be easy to mistake Park Ave. Barbers for a cozy after-work hangout. After receiving a warm welcome, men with mussed hairdos hop into leather thrones and entrust their styles to the shop’s expert barbers. Flat-screen televisions keep eyes distracted from the scissors behind them as the barbers work assiduously to dress up scalps in timeless fashions. A hot lather softens whiskers before a traditional straight-razor shave coaxes out facial tattoos cowering in the darkness of a five o’clock shadow.
Redken-certified colorist and salon owner Dawn Palmieri leads the way at Blonde D’s Hair Shop. She and her fellow stylists create their clients’ dream looks with the help of products from Redken, Pureology, and Moroccanoil. Along with haircare services, they’ll prep ladies for a fun night out or an exceptionally pretty night on the couch with blowouts, makeup applications, and eyelash extensions.
Though it’s been open for only a few years, Cristina's Hair Salon amasses more than three decades of experience inside its welcoming confines, thanks to its veteran stylists. Once they’re in styling chairs, clients offer up their strands to the team’s expert straightening treatments, highlights, all-over color, and updos, and they emerge with magazine-worthy looks without actually taping pictures of hair models to their heads. The stylists also specialize in artistically placing small bursts of color in hair, as well as cutting children’s hair.
Signature Skin Care began more than 60 years ago, when a passionate couple opened a local hair salon. Fast-forward to the present, and the salon now functions under their daughter, Betty, with beauty services performed by her daughter, Karen—a licensed and certified aesthetician. Using all-natural products that are free of chemicals, artificial fragrances, and dyes, Karen treats bodies to services such as the salon’s signature facial, which blends deep cleansing with toning massage, skin analysis, and steam therapy. She also performs myriad other beauty treatments that range from peels and microdermabrasion to eyelash and hair extensions.
