Whether their clients are searching for a sleek blowout or a brand new cut and color, the stylists at Dina’s Blowout are skilled in everything hair related. In addition to adding texture to manes with foil highlights or twisting strands into formal updos, the stylists also smooth away frizz with keratin treatments and chemical relaxers.
The stylists at brand-new Anthony Richard Hair Salon master the latest texturizing, coloring, and cutting techniques to furnish a menu of glamorizing hair treatments. Stylists show off their chops by crafting face-framing cuts that complement their clients' hair types and lifestyles, smoothing strands with a formaldehyde-free keratin treatment, and adding length to strands with extensions or Rip Van Winkle vacations. To add the finishing touch to a hairdo reboot, the salon also offers custom airbrush makeup that gives skin flawless coverage and natural color.
Much like its treatments, Bocu Salon and Day Spa's decor blends old and new. A curved black awning spreads over the threshold, ushering visitors into a bright, neutral-toned studio where minimalist salon stations contrast against a giant reproduction of The Birth of Venus. The steady trickle of an indoor waterfall creates a soothing soundtrack for the salon and spa treatments, which range from classic cuts and massages to advanced keratin treatments and oxygen-infused facials. The spa maintains a modern approach to sanitation—from the pedicure stations to the Vichy shower—while taking an old-fashioned approach to customer service, offering robes, lockers, and optional lunches for guests.
Nina Julian Salon is bringing a tiny touch of Hollywood glamour to Huntington Station, starting with the framed picture of Marilyn Monroe that graces the salon’s sky-blue walls. The movie star sits with her chin in her hands, as if passing time by watching the stylists hard at work creating trendy cuts or bestowing heads with eye-catching feather extensions. An elegant chandelier casts a romantic glow as clients become red-carpet ready with sleek blowouts or curling-iron styles, or allow stylists to paint their strands with face-framing highlights to mentally prepare for an upcoming film role as “salon guest #1.”
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 2012. It's not surprising, then, that the salon has enjoyed such impressive growth over the years, with more than two dozen locations now blanketing most of Long Island. Though hair is still the focus—stylists craft hairdos that reflect either 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 of services is so broad, many clients take advantage of Cactus Club memberships, which give them the flexibility to try multiple services by deactivating the force fields between treatment rooms and granting a 33% discount on products and services on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.
