Long Island Nail & Skin Care Institute president Dana Caruso juggles a busy schedule. When she’s not working behind the scenes at New York Fashion Week or appearing on Access Hollywood, she champions a science-based curriculum that helps students to master everything from makeup to laser services. Once students gain a sufficiently diverse skill set from the school portion of the center, they apply what they've learned inside the Institute’s spa. There, professionals supervise students as they perform facials, airbrush tanning, and body sugaring, a treatment mainly intended to attract mad hatters who run out of sweetener.

Born in Morocco, Tazi spent years studying women's beauty treatments in France before opening his own studio on the other side of the Atlantic. Today, he continues to draw on his European training to infuse hair with silky, voluminous texture and amplify natural beauty with cosmetics. He designs each treatment to make clients feel gorgeous and confident, but the benefits don't end there; Tazi also donates a portion of his profits to local charities.

To ensure patients pair up with the proper technological assistant, helpful technicians discuss all treatment options with Laser Plus Spa clientele before administering any procedures.
