More than 30 years after its inception, Cactus Salon & Spa and its team of continually educated stylists have not lost their edge—they earned the Long Island Press's designation as Best Hair Salon and Best Day Spa in 2012. It's not surprising, then, that the salon has enjoyed such impressive growth over the years, with more than two dozen separate spa and salon locations.

Although hair is still the focus—stylists craft 'dos that reflect everyday ease or fashion-forward thinking—the repertoire has expanded to include everything from nail treatments and massages to permanent cosmetics and laser services. Since the roster is so broad, many clients take advantage of Cactus Club memberships, which give them the flexibility to try multiple services and products by deactivating the force fields between treatment rooms and granting a 33% discount on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

The stylists at Beauty Affairs Salon don’t just see beauty as looking good—they see it as providing strength, condition, and health to each customer's hair. Inside their salon, they help clients reach their peaks both physically and mentally with cuts, color, and texturizing services; tranquil and invigorating facials; bridal makeup and updos; and facial and body waxing. They also apply intricate henna tattoos and perfect eyebrow arches with threading services that remove rogue hairs.

When kids visit Dave's Barbershop for a trim, they get to sit behind the wheel of sleek red racecar that doubles as a barber's chair. And although most adults won't fit into the stylish sports car, they still leave feeling suave thanks to the haircuts, color, and waxing services that are the shop's specialties. Beyond cropping locks and camouflaging greys, the staff smoothes scratchy chins with classic shaves, which include a luxurious hot-towel treatment that softens stubble and glued-on Santa beards before they are deftly sheared away.

Salon Atlantique's six stylists bring their scissors-wielding skills together to refashion the town's overgrown manes with hairdo-tailoring services aided by brand-name products from Goldwell, Rusk, and Pro Rituals. An artfully crafted haircut abbreviates elongated strands into face-flattering locks before a skilled hairdresser coats coifs in all-over gloss for a luxurious shine. Newly snipped and glossed strands can achieve new hues with a single-process color or partial highlights that attract positive attention to coiffures––unlike an airport runway marshal waving orange batons over your head. As excess inches float toward the ground, clients can fix their eyes on the salon's ornate chandeliers, yellow and burgundy curtains, and exceptionally high ceilings.

A visitor to Omnia Vanitas Specialty Salon can get a haircut and hire a personal shopper all in one trip. On the haircare side, services target all sorts of hair types and style goals: braiding, dreading, and keratin treatments revamp and retexture, whereas wigs, weaves, and extensions supplement natural hair with picture-perfect locks. The salon's specialties include wedding dos, children's services, and hair restoration. But the staff's expertise goes beyond just hairstyling. Facials, nailcare, and makeup applications turn the studio into a salon-spa, and personal shopping ensures guests are just as stylish from the neck down.
