More than 32 years ago, master colorist Frank Commisso envisioned an elegant and contemporary setting where clients could relax and enjoy expert beauty services. Today, candelabras and flower arrangements add classic flare to the modern décor of Adesso Hair Salon, which offers both hair and mani-pedi services. Floor-to-ceiling mirrors keep an eye on clients as experienced stylists trim locks, paint tresses with natural color, and create elaborate topiary hair gardens. Along one wall, soft black chairs cradle customers as stylists massage scalps with shampoo or protein-rich conditioners. In a video profile of Adesso Hair Salon, Commisso explains that in the industry, "The trend is that there is no trend—we are becoming very personalized with the individual." With this in mind, Commisso ensures that clients receive services that highlight their unique attributes.
Yuriry's red-and-yellow awning lists an impressive list of services—from highlights to makeup to nail treatments—all available seven days a week. Catering to both men and women, the salon boasts a fleet of stylists skilled at precision cuts, clipper fades, and relaxing hot-towel shaves.
Using time-honored barbershop techniques, the team at Hair & Co Salon in Syosset rework gents’ hair into sharp, clean styles. Barbers skillfully use razors during royal hot towel shaves, which smoothly clear away stubble and packing labels that have been left on the face. The salon also performs women's haircuts and styles, with the help of top-of-the-line products such as Redken, Matrix, and Moroccanoil.
For more than 60 years, the staff at D’s Barbershop has been styling men’s hair into classic cuts. And over that time period, they’ve perfected a lot of cuts, from the classic crew cut to more modern spiked ‘dos and even women’s trims. But to this day, their most popular service is their cut and shave, where guests recline into seats as barbers lather faces before taking a straightedge razor to create clean-cut cheekbones, chins, and hairlines. Barbers talk shop as their hands go about their tasks, ensuring customers always have a cold drink, cup of coffee, and the day’s game on the shop’s flat-screen TV. Every cut is finished with a relaxing shoulder massage, which adds a bit of pampering into each service without dumping a Gatorade cooler full of bubble bath down your back.
A straightedged haircut isn't the only option at Elegant Barbershop, although the barbers are experts in that. They also use their skills to etch designs into hair as guests relax in plush, leather styling chairs. The rest of their service list, curated over 20 years in business, also includes hot-towel shaves and haircuts for women and children.
