Owners and licensed aestheticians Sandra Cossa-Ortiz and Colleen McMahon tend to all of Dare to be Bare's clients, and the pair has garnered praise from Westchester Magazine for their warm personalities and thorough attention to detail. By incorporating ultrasonic vibrations into their treatments, they promote vitamin absorption, encourage collagen regeneration, and reduce wrinkles caused by frowning or impersonating a raisin. They also pamper skin surfaces with facials, diamond microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal. For clients inclined to more traditional hair-removal methods, Sandra and Colleen liberate hirsute patches using a lavender-chamomile-blended wax that lends skin a flower's smoothness and attractiveness to butterflies.
Lauded by Time Out New York for its wallet-friendly services, Tones Spa helps clients look their freshest with a long list of facial treatments for any type of skin. Replenishing stashes of collagen and elastin, a 45-minute microdermabrasion treatment smoothes faces by buffing away dead skin and food morsels left over from last week. During facial peels, aestheticians fill out fine lines and balance uneven complexions with a beautifying blend that includes face-friendly alpha-hydroxy acid. As specialists in waxing, the team can also remove unwanted hair from just about any area using gentle waxes that promote comfort.
A doubled cotton thread runs between the mouth and hands of a salon staffer. The thread twists, descends, and as its handler maneuvers it over an eyebrow, it grips errant hairs by the base, swiftly removing them from the skin and leaving behind an expertly shaped brow. Although threading is an ancient practice, the specialists at Aspire Threading Salon prove day in and day out that it remains a useful one for ridding faces, hands, feet, and overly bristled toothbrushes of unwanted hairs. The staff also performs other feats of hair-removal with wax, eases tension from temples with massages, and adorns limbs with henna tattoos.

Typically, a trip to the salon breathes new life into hair, making it appear softer and shinier—until you wash it. At Salon Monteleone, however, stylists don’t settle for the instant gratification of professional blow-drying. Instead, they educate their clients with styling tricks and tips for proper haircare. They even offer intensive conditioning and hydrating treatments by Moroccanoil to restore strands that were damaged while attempting to horse-jump through a burning hoop. The result: locks that don’t just appear chic and shiny but actually are stronger and healthier.
Sulfate- and paraben-free products by Surface supplement the team's natural talent throughout cut, color, and retexturing services. Customers can obtain highlights, 10-minute permanent color, relaxers, and even Hairdreams extensions made from unprocessed European strands.
After honing their styling abilities in the elegant salons of southern Italy, brothers Luigi and Piero Pirri set their sights on London. The goal was to acquire the advanced technical skills required in a world of constantly evolving style. At their two salons in Greenwich and Eastchester, the brothers now lead a professional styling team while utilizing the techniques they have gathered in their journey of more than 20 years.
While crafting styles for regular clients or models of New York City's Fashion Week, the salon team utilizes products from the brothers' own product line, Pirri Elements. Each shampoo or conditioner from Pirri Elements contains a few droplets of essential bergamot oil, which helps to leave hair beautiful and manageable, unlike a job letting billionaires tousle your hair.
