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.

Aestheticians also treat first-time salon guests to a complimentary eyebrow threading, when not combined with any other offers or promotions.
Within the full-service Salon Elle, guests get pampered with hair and nail treatments while soaking up bright waves of natural light pouring through large windows.

Other services include waxing to remove unwanted hair from areas such as the eyebrows, upper lip, or chin, as well as manicures, pedicures, and keratin treatments.
After working in the hairstyling industry for decades, Theresa has learned a lot. So much so, that she decided to open Salon Exterior. She and her staff at the Paul Mitchell Focus salon specialize in stylish haircuts, vivid color, form updos, and smoothing keratin treatments. And although they are knowledgeable on all aspects of hair, they work to stay up to date on trends with continuing-education courses.
Inside Stefanie's Hair Studio, eye-catching chandeliers and marble-topped work stations add to the highly trained stylists' sophistication. From behind sleek black salon chairs, they cut, color, and curl strands into new looks that complement their clients’ face shapes and favorite decades.
