Steven Papageorge opened his one-man salon in 1983, and like so many strands, it grew and flourished to include multiple locations and even a hair academy. Today, the salons continue to beautify clients with stylish cuts and a number of hue-altering services—such as highlights, color blocking, and ammonia-free Inoa color. The staff’s arsenal includes products from American Crew and Moroccanoil, with the latter adding shine and strength to hair.
Mystic Fountain Wellness Center's holistic healers restore bodies with recuperative treatments designed to stimulate natural healing processes, not replace them. These treatments might include the strategic placement of tiny adhesive magnets or the application of soft herb- and aloe-soaked bandages, both of which oust stored stress and toxins. The Himalayan salt room also treats chronic conditions, in particular respiratory issues such as sinus trouble. With its low temperature relative to a typical sauna, the infrared sauna is particularly appealing to clients with a low tolerance for heat or snowmen with an extraordinarily high tolerance for heat.
The staff and state-certified massage therapists at Heavenly Massage have left no stone unturned when it comes to their clients’ relaxation. At each Heavenly Massage location, the music, lighting, and decor all serve the same goal of enhancing peace of mind. Though massages—ranging from hot stone to lymphatic drainage—are the signature service, the staff also offers nailcare, skincare, waxing, and body treatments.
When developing the concept for his Teddie Kossof Salon & Spa, master stylist Teddie Kossof decided to combine head-to-toe beauty treatments under one roof. For nearly 40 years, the salon and spa has beautified the North Shore using top-notch products from Keratin Complex, Milbon, Goldwell, Wella, Sebastian, Aquage, Moroccanoil, Colorproof, Rene Furterer, and Clarins. Day spa services include facials, waxing, body massages, and makeup application in the studio.
Danbee Spa's adept aestheticians treat digits and bodies to french or spa-style mani-pedis and waxing for both men and women. Manicures and pedicures polish beleaguered extremities, with some treatments providing paraffin-wax dips or salt to buff nails and grant clients the power to season pot roasts upon contact. In massages, therapists ease away muscle tension with kneading strokes targeted at tense areas. Spa technicians also offer to beautify clients for a range of events, including weddings, neighborhood parties, and birthday soirees.
Modeled after traditional Korean spas, King Spa and Sauna houses nine distinct therapy rooms, each of which specializes in treating a different form of ailment or anxiety. The Charcoal Room lines its walls with antibacterial briquettes, which can alleviate conditions such as eczema and undercooked pork sausage. The domed sauna in the Fire Sudatorium encircles entrants in dry-heat and oak-tree aromatherapy, whereas the low temperature of the Ice Room encourages blood flow to the chilled parts of the body. In the heated Base Rock Room, slabs of siraka stone emit infrared rays, increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage during a process that, like most mixed-martial-arts careers, typically doesn't last longer than two 15-minute sessions.
