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.
From a studio illuminated by crystalline chandeliers to skincare formulas imported from France, Studio Tres Jolie channels the glamour of Paris in everything they do. Yon-Ka Paris creams and serums power the studio’s six facials, which are tailored to target aging, acne, dehydration, and other issues. Many of the studio's other treatments—including microcurrent facials and laser hair removal—favor technology instead of topical products to elevate beauty for the long term. For speedy surface enhancement, SunFX airbrush tanning achieves a sun-kissed glow in a matter of minutes. Studio Tres Jolie's mastery of all these services means that the spot is often most in demand during bridal season, when it’s most important to look your best. Clients can book appointments up to a year in advance, or up to 50 years after the ceremony if they have access to a time portal.
