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.
Yael Turkiewicz's studies in movement followed a staircase of disciplines, taking her from dance to aerobics to Pilates and eventually to yoga. She now holds certifications to teach the latter three fields, though she hardly considers her learning process complete—she attends continuing-education workshops to further explore the physics of the body. At her studio, she and her teaching staff blend the deep stretches of Pilates with yoga poses and light weight training. They add heat to many of their lessons, such as Hot Core and Hot Power Yoga, to loosen up limbs more safely than taping them to a strongman's pickle jar. By modifying postures to suit each student's skill range, they ensure that guests exercise within their comfort zones.
