The success of The Daymaker Salon relies on two distinct principles: design savvy and a commitment to personal attention. The first component walks into the salon every day inside the head of stylist Edmond Selfollari, who spent years training under industry heavyweights Elizabeth Arden and Mario Tricoci. His stylists bolster his keen aesthetic eye with their own, which they continuously hone with ongoing training and education, a dedication to perfection that earned them the honor of acting as stylists for makeover features on The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Jenny Jones Show. In service of the second component—commitment to personal attention—every haircare service begins with a complimentary consultation. Stylists chat with clients and listen to their fashion goals and wishes. By the time the scissors come out, stylists know what their clients want and how to use their vast cosmetic knowledge in service of those expectations. The stylists can help their clients to change up their hairstyle or find solutions to color problems such as natural hair tones that wash out the complexion or match a rival debate team's jersey colors.
Whether stylist Tharie crafts a cutting-edge look or a classic one, she uses her clients’ features and personality as signposts to devise the hairdo that best complements their personal style. From her station inside Anastasia Beauty Bar, she brings these fashionable looks to life with daubs of color, whether all over the hair, in dimension-boosting highlights, or only underneath so as not to offend family members filmed in black and white. She also smoothes out frizz-prone strands for up to five months with Keratin Complex treatments.
With its starkly elegant black-and-white design scheme, On Stage Salon exudes a modern vibe that belies its 40 years in business. Ornate chandeliers illuminate the cushy, ebony salon chairs, from which stylists transform the manes of women, men, and children. A time-honed slate of services draw from cutting-edge products such as Moroccanoil, Paul Mitchell, and Wella color. The mirrors at each styling station—along with the delicately painted curlicues above them—reflect clients' newly minted perms, waves, and Slinky extensions.
With its red half-moon sofas and retro-industrial decor, a.Go.Go the Salon's interior stands as a hip counterpart to the modern styles that emerge from its salon chairs. Led by owner, founder, and top stylist Mary Mirakian, the salon team cuts and styles hair or imbues it with vibrant colors. The stylists' steadfast hands can weave sugar-free banana curls or employ professional products from the likes of Kevin Murphy and Keratin Complex to leave locks silky smooth. Staff members also boast expertise in aesthetics, including waxing, nailcare, and makeup application.
Scruples Salon & Spa oozes luxury, from its chic atmosphere to its body-coddling services. In this elegant space, soothingly adorned with orchids and pale leather sofas, skilled stylists and aestheticians take care of clients from head to toe. They offer trendsetting haircuts, coloring services, and updos to customers relaxing in massage chairs, along with spa mani-pedis, soothing facials, and waxing. Everything from body wraps and exfoliation treatments to eyelash tinting and massage therapy is available at this full-service salon and beauty center, and the calming and quiet vibe enhances the experience.
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, and Clarins. Day spa services include facials, waxing, body massages, and makeup application in the studio.
