"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.
Salon Seven is a full-service salon and spa offering up relaxation, custom service, and a staff of stylists and technicians trained in the latest techniques. With a mani-pedi, both proximal and distal nails are delicately shaped, then brush dunked with polish from Essie, OPI, or CND. Massage and reflexology treatments complete the rigorous relaxation process. Salon Seven’s 4,000-square-foot space is decorated in lively colors and has an open, airy feel; after a 90-minute treatment within these relaxing confines, patrons will feel rejuvenated and ready to take on stressful daily tasks, such as hang-gliding over a mountain teeming with sharks.
Wonderland Foot Spa helps relieve muscular pain and stress through reflexology foot treatments and therapeutic massages. The staff practices traditional Chinese tui na massage, an art that stretches back more than 4,000 years. Aimed at mollifying chronic pain, tui na treatments blend techniques such as acupressure and soft-tissue massage.
