Elite Hair Studio & Spa's staffers travel to New York, LA, London, and Paris for frequent training, returning to the studio with newly acquired skills to better meet client needs during custom services. The stylists begin treatments with a complimentary consultation to determine the cut angles that will flatter cheekbones or what blend of hair color will accentuate complexion, eye color, or the necklace that can't be removed due to a curse. Through signature facials, the aestheticians evict blemishes, and nail techs pamper long-forgotten cuticles before overshadowing them with gleaming polish. Before treatments, the staff directs guests to recumbent leather chairs flanked by wood-framed mirrors and furnishes each visitor with cucumber-infused water.
As a girl of just 13 or 14, Amita perched in her aunts’ hair salon and watched with fascination as they snipped clients’ tresses. Today, Amita still watches the flash of scissors, but now they are in the hands of skilled stylists in her own salon.
Amita bustles through the shop, mixing honey, sugar, and lemon to create her own wax for hair-removal treatments, her specialty. She also mixes her own all-natural henna paste for embellishing hands and feet with elaborate whorls and loops. This attentiveness to the products used in her salon, combined with more than a quarter century of experience in the industry, has led Amita to insist that her stylists wield quality elixirs from Paul Mitchell and Biolage. The salon’s skincare specialists employ Repêchage products to renew visages wrinkled from a lifetime of frowning at a Rubik’s cube.
When Angel Tips opened the doors to its single Long Island store in 1996, it had a simple premise: to offer professional nail, waxing, and beauty services at an affordable price. Although the company has expanded to more than 60 locations across New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut since then, their focus on professionalism remains the same. They even require all of their licensed professionals to hone their skills at a specialized training center in Connecticut.
Though Angel Tips expertly performs waxing services and installs eyelash extensions, their specialty lies in nail care. Their technicians perform traditional, gel, and acrylic manicures, as well as specialty pedicures with paraffin and hot stone massages. Cleanliness, like professionalism and affordability, is a top priority; all locations use sanitized tools, disposable files and buffer pads, and pedicure chairs that have fully outgrown their teenage grunge phases.
The beauty specialists at La Bella Hair and Nail Spa keep their attention intently focused on the hair they are arranging into elegant up-dos or the nails they are decorating with glittery gel polish, pausing only to cheerfully greet clients as they enter. The skilled staff dances across the hardwood floor of the sunlit space, draping clients in smocks to prepare for haircuts and color treatments and guiding others to private treatment rooms for body-waxing services. They sit pedicure clients on cushy armchairs before treating their toes to luxurious peppermint, green tea, and silk spa pedicures. The staff specializes in quick and quality eyelash-extension applications, expertly elongating lashes with their own brand of glamorous, natural extensions in less than 30 minutes. They even offer extension-training workshops and demonstrations for those interested in recreating the dazzling look on themselves, a friend, or a jack-o-lantern.
Tanzia Skincare products is a very innovative and growing company with a constant focus on what is new and what is necessary for the skin care market.

The beauty experts at Salon Elegance call upon a decade of experience to craft new looks, along with a toolkit of makeup, henna paste, and Scruples hair products. In addition to cuts, color services, and keratin treatments, staffers specialize in the ancient art of threading, a natural hair-removal method. They create temporary henna tattoos by mixing a base of lemon juice, sugar, and essential oils, the same ingredients used to make aromatherapeutic lemonade. Red curtains frame the windows behind a comfy black leather couch, and rust-colored walls and assorted potted plants give the space a warm, welcoming vibe.
Many of Hair & Nail Excellence's clients have been loyal customers for years. But it's not the exposed brick walls and elegant wooden paneling they're coming back for; those are fairly new. It's the attentive pampering the staff pours on every person who walks through the door. With head-to-toe beauty services, licensed stylists and cosmetologists breathe new life into dull hairdos and nails, prepping guests for special occasions or merely devising whole new everyday looks. They factor in professional products such as Moroccan Oil, Matrix, and OPI during their signature hair and nail services and offer Fake Bake tans to get skin glowing and ward off the attention of amorous snowmen.
