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.
"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.
Offering a full suite of services, the staff members of Salon D'Artista and Spa beautify and makeover visitors with precision cuts, hair coloring, permanent makeup, and facial waxing. Stylists tame manes within a colorful space marked by rust-colored walls and rows of red chairs, and aestheticians perform a range of shadow-puppet shows and facials with Dermalogica products while tucked away in private, pastel-colored rooms.
Massage Therapy is bodywork intended to calm and relax the mind, body and spirit. Massage can reduce anxiety, help decrease blood pressure and heart rate which in turn can reduce stress levels. The benefits of massage are never ending. Feel good about feeling great!

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.
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.
