Speaking to Wantagh-Seaford Patch, Lush Hair Unisex Salon owner Harry Hernandez doesn't mince words when speaking of his passion for hairstyling, explaining, "the first time I picked up a pair of scissors, I knew it was something that I loved to do." After honing his skills in the industry for nearly a decade, he culled a team of experienced stylists and colorists to create a salon that caters to families, professionals, and the fashion-conscious alike.
Stylist Lauren Tomasino, owner of Glamour Addict, focuses on the details whenever she styles her clients' hair with paraben-free AG products. She developed her attention to detail with Bumble and bumble training and a stint working for Elizabeth Arden and John Sahag. The salon also offers makeovers, eyelash extensions, lash and brow tinting, waxing, and tanning services.
To stay abreast of all the changing fashions, Styling Haircutters’ expert staffers educate themselves on the latest hairstyles and coloring techniques for women, men, and children. They put this razor-sharp knowledge to use in other arenas besides the traditional cut and style, performing waxing, threading, and even teeth whitening services. They also offer perms, relaxers, hair feathers, and extensions made from real human hair.
Drawing on training in advanced skincare, Aura Lanier tends to dermal needs with a wide range of equipment inside The Spa At Salon D’va. Microdermabrasion units emit a fine spray of crystals, and FDA-approved red-light therapy helps to repair skin by stimulating cells and collagen growth. Custom blends of aromatic oils help to bolster the relaxing effects of massages and the comic effect of a bloodhound trying to get to work on time.
A chandelier dangles over natural wood floors, adding a touch of glamour to the soothing confines of LaCole Salon & Spa. With relaxing services to match its tranquil setting, LaCole was named one of Long Island’s best day spas by Long Island Press readers in 2012. The peppermint-sea-twist body wrap, for instance, boosts circulation and quells achy muscles with a combination of fresh seaweed and aromatic triple mint. The staff also performs facials, deep-tissue massages, waxing, and body polishes, which are popular among tin men tired of strange looks at the car wash. Long Island Press readers also had flattering things to say about the staff’s hairstyling skills, listing LaCole among the area’s best hair salons in 2011. Stylists beautify tresses with everything from routine cuts and color touchups, to Brazilian blowouts and wedding-day styles for brides-to-be.
Long Island Laser Hair Therapy, a member of the HairLoss.com Association, stimulates hair regrowth for men and women with laser therapy alongside DHT-blocking supplements that sustain post-treatment growth. After a digital microscopic scalp analysis, clients recline in a cozy chair as a European-developed cosmetic laser rejuvenates flagging follicles. As the laser bolsters blood flow around the scalp, hair loss ceases in 93 percent of clients. The treatment can pump up hair volume by 25 percent and foster thicker, fuller hair for hair transplant clients and shedding Koosh balls.
