Everything about Industry 80 Salon—the brainchild of Dominic Trupia and Geo Greco—is a work of modern art, from their cut and coloring services to their décor. Beneath high ceilings with exposed ductwork, the stylists fashion chic cuts in sculpturesque metal stations flanked by neon purple lighting. Their specialties also include Brazilian blow outs and coloring, using Pureology and Redken products, as advertised by the nearly floor-to-ceiling photo of two very chic and aloof hair models on one of the white brick walls. While most of their services revolve around the creation of new ‘dos, techs are also available to perform laser-hair removal, facials, and makeup applications.
Dominique Ianni presides over Dolce Vita Esthetique, where she leans on 10 years of industry experience at upscale spas to deliver exceptional beauty treatments to her clientele. The salon uses only high-end Dermalogica products in its facials and spa services. Dominique also specializes in waxing treatments.
At Styles by Elle, a team of experienced stylists beautifies clients with sundry salon services, makeup application, waxing, and packages for brides. The staff personalizes looks to each individual's style, clipping hair and adding texture with coloring treatments. Dedicated to their craft, the stylists remain vigilant, continuously educating themselves to stay on top of industry developments.

Owners and licensed aestheticians Sandra Cossa-Ortiz and Colleen McMahon tend to all of Dare to be Bare's clients, and the pair has garnered praise from Westchester Magazine for their warm personalities and thorough attention to detail. By incorporating ultrasonic vibrations into their treatments, they promote vitamin absorption, encourage collagen regeneration, and reduce wrinkles caused by frowning or impersonating a raisin. They also pamper skin surfaces with facials, diamond microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal. For clients inclined to more traditional hair-removal methods, Sandra and Colleen liberate hirsute patches using a lavender-chamomile-blended wax that lends skin a flower's smoothness and attractiveness to butterflies.
Lauded by Time Out New York for its wallet-friendly services, Tones Spa helps clients look their freshest with a long list of facial treatments for any type of skin. Replenishing stashes of collagen and elastin, a 45-minute microdermabrasion treatment smoothes faces by buffing away dead skin and food morsels left over from last week. During facial peels, aestheticians fill out fine lines and balance uneven complexions with a beautifying blend that includes face-friendly alpha-hydroxy acid. As specialists in waxing, the team can also remove unwanted hair from just about any area using gentle waxes that promote comfort.
