Technology gently winds back Mother Nature's clock at Aesthetic Medical Network, where lasers and radiofrequency can do anything from boosting skin-plumping collagen to smoothing away cellulite. The staff's ease with modern beautification techniques lends itself to a broad range of services, including problem-area-targeted med-spa treatments such as laser hair removal and top-notch traditional spa facials augmented by peels or complimentary portraits by an out-of-work courtroom artist.
Clients new to Donna Oggi might expect to meet a stylist by that name, but they won’t. She doesn’t exist. The owner is Nadia Scagliarini, and the name of her salon comes from the phrase una donna di oggi, an Italian saying that translates to "today’s woman." And Nadia, a stylist with 12 years of professional experience, is ready to accommodate many of today's tastes—her toolkit includes both traditional and organic products, including Tocco Magico, an Italian color line that has been experimenting with natural ingredients since the early 1930s. Though originally a one-woman show, Nadia now has someone to share her passion with—her daughter Jessica joined the salon upon obtaining her cosmetology certification.
Nina Julian Salon is bringing a tiny touch of Hollywood glamour to Huntington Station, starting with the framed picture of Marilyn Monroe that graces the salon’s sky-blue walls. The movie star sits with her chin in her hands, as if passing time by watching the stylists hard at work creating trendy cuts or bestowing heads with eye-catching feather extensions. An elegant chandelier casts a romantic glow as clients become red-carpet ready with sleek blowouts or curling-iron styles, or allow stylists to paint their strands with face-framing highlights to mentally prepare for an upcoming film role as “salon guest #1.”
The stylists at Gizay Michaels Salon, a Redken concept salon, create both innovative and classic coifs that can easily transition from casual to glamorous. Every service begins with a consultation to discuss clients’ target look or hair-related challenges, which may include controlling frizz or escaping the staticky clutches of marauding balloons. Along with services, the salon also hosts a full line of styling serums from Redken, which may be purchased to help clients to maintain their salon look at home.
The staff of Salon Danina helps patrons to discover fetching new styles with a robust menu of salon services. Haircuts for men, women, and children top off the menu, while more specialized options, such as up-dos, hair extensions, and straightening treatments, can further perfect newly-shorn locks.
The professional staff at Anthony DeFranco gently pampers and beautifies clients' skin suits with sugary scrubs, body wraps, and pumpkin-infused treatments. In a one-hour session, a staff member will gently exfoliate bodies with a soothing brown-sugar scrub to hydrate and soften skin. Patrons then rinse off in the spa's soothing rain shower and receive a skin-polishing glaze designed to lock in moisture and a sugar-inspired glow brighter than a birthday cake frosted with Lite-Brite pieces. The cellulite-reduction body wrap targets unwanted cellulite on legs, stomach, and posteriors to help improve shape and tone.
