Amid their salon?s abundant lights and expansive mirrors, the stylists at Hair Creations rejuvenate hairstyles and beautify bodies. Joico products accentuate cuts, styles, colorings, and other hair treatments; waxing services eliminate unwanted fuzz on all areas of the body; and natural-looking gel nails and long-lasting Shellac polish help nails regain their splendor after long nights spent clawing into bank vaults. Recently, the talented staff of Hair and Beyond has joined the Hair Creations team, where they'll be able to offer more of their friendly professional services and expanded hours.
Berthas European Spa is a warm, inviting oasis filled with skilled aestheticians who revitalize bodies with a variety of spa services. During the 75-minute foot-pampering session, guests settle into a sleek, modern pedicure station accented with lush pillows. A skilled technician treats tough feet to a soothing soak before filing unruly nails into shape and tending to clamorous cuticles. Nail specialists then give soles a sea-salt scrub with chocolate, pomegranate, or mint aromas, which have been proven to be the most effective scents for tempting away unwanted debris and dermaflaws. Finally, a foot-and-leg massage soothes achy muscles, a moisturizing foot mask hydrates thirsty feet, and nails get a fresh coat of paint. The 45-minute chocolate spa manicure closely mimics the pedicure procedure, rounding out distressed fingers and nails while moisturizing the hands that feed you with a cocoa-based phalange mask.
As part of the Cosmetic Surgery Associates of New York, the staff at SkinSmart Aesthetics helps boost complexions with a variety of skincare services. Botox and injectable fillers minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and chemical peels and laser skin-resurfacing treatments reveal fresh, younger-looking skin. Laser skin and vein treatments are also available for skin beautifying.
Deep-seated stresses dissipate at the hands of Limback Wellness Center's certified massage therapists. The center specializes in hot-stone and hot-towel massages, which employ penetrating heat and soothing circular motions to boost circulation, oxygenate muscles, and alleviate the lingering stiffness that comes from serving as the spring festival’s Maypole. Aside from their popular heated modalities, the team of male and female massage therapists treats clients to gentle relaxation massages and more focused deep-tissue work.
John Hesmadt started Theraquest 10 years ago at the urging of his sister, who saw it as a way for him to help family members in need. John experienced a lot of joy and satisfaction through his work with relatives, and eventually decided he wanted to provide the same for other families. Today, he performs a suite of services focused on relieving pain and helping restore range of motion. To help athletes recover from injury, he uses kinesio-tape to hold malfunctioning muscles in place, speeding the healing process so that clients can get back in the gym, on the field, or into their old mascot uniform. For everyday folks, he often combines deep tissue massage and muscle pain therapy to soothe the aches of strains and tension. His favorite service to perform, though, is a sports massage. "I love [it] because it brings relief to my clients from their aches and pains and can restore smooth and flexible body movement," he says.

Nuriel Abramov and Gabriel Abrams founded Numi & Company because they "wanted to give Westchester women something that's fresh and new." So they took their upscale Manhattan training and experience?some of which included styling celebrities for Allure and contestants on America's Next Top Model?out of the city and built two sleek and acclaimed salon locations. Nominated Best of the Decade by Westchester Magazine, both Abramov and Abrams know that a refined yet friendly atmosphere isn't enough to lure style-savvy women to their door?their first concern is hair. Abrams? less-is-more approach shapes the line of attack for their team of stylists, who focus on finding what works best for the individual rather than recreating what hair looks great on a beach ball.
