The stylists at Bespoke Barber Shop may average 20 years of experience in grooming their diverse clientele, but their studio layout makes it look like they have second careers in interior design. The decor emanates both vintage and modern vibes, illustrated by the classic barber chairs with sleek armrests and the modern graffiti art positioned above framed black-and-white photos of a bygone era. Hanging within viewing distance of the waiting area’s leather sofa, flat-screen televisions play ESPN and live sports over the hum of trimmers and the swipes of straight razors. From scissor-cuts to mohawks, fade to tapers, stylists reinvent scalps of men, women, and children alike. In addition to touting its tress management skills, the shop uses old-school barber techniques of high-quality shaves and cuts, infusing it with new-school style. Bespoke has also garnered a following from high-profile heads, including the Yankees' own Mario Rivera.
Salon Lotus Dry Bar cultivates a sleek space adorned with white salon chairs, metal-framed mirrors, and blond wood floors. This decor reflects the clean, modern hairstyling aesthetics of the staff, who strive to foster an atmosphere of relaxation and sophistication where women can escape from their responsibilities and pamper themselves. Stylists can enhance their signature blowouts and trendy cuts with voluminous eyelash extensions or face-flattering makeup applications. The team also opens the space to private parties for girlfriends, bridesmaids, and CIA operatives in need of fake-mustache removal.
The Lunaz Salon staff is highly trained in both dry and wet cuts, crafting new styles that range from trendy to classic. The stylists also apply highlights and lowlights and offer corrective-color treatments. Additionally, clients can treat themselves to soothing massages or have unwanted hair removed with waxing services in the salon's modern and upscale surroundings. Aestheticians also treat first-time salon guests to a complimentary eyebrow threading, when not combined with any other offers or promotions.
Honey-sugar scrubs, paraffin-wax dips, and hot-stone foot massages are a few of the add-ons the team at Angel Tips uses to comfort guests. They spread these relaxing services across an extensive menu of spa manicures, lemon pedicures, and Swedish massage. Well versed in skincare, the versatile staff draw excess oil from pores with oxygen facials and deep-cleaning masks, which leaves skin smooth—almost as smooth as their face- and body-waxing services do.
In an elegant space decorated with teal walls and hanging chandeliers, Pelorus Nails' stylists decorate nails with intricate designs. Exfoliating scrubs and hot towels ensure that skin also gets pampered during mani-pedis, and waxing and threading sessions keep body hair at bay.
