Like FDR's White House staff, the team at Makin Waves has more than 20 years of experience doing what they do. With Matrix, Paul Mitchell, and Coppola products, they trim, style, and color hair. And the elegance they impart to their clients' coiffures is matched by their salon's surroundings. Mocha-colored walls hold long mirrors flanked by gilded faux ivy, and blond-hardwood floors evoke the highlights being splashed into hair above them.
Inside this full-service hair and nail salon, a team of stylists uses the latest treatments to update looks. Keratin formulas create smooth, shiny manes that are complemented by trendy cuts and color treatments. Nail technicians, meanwhile, adorn tips with long-lasting gel or airbrushed artwork. All treatments take place amid Salon 141’s elegant decor of twinkling chandeliers, warm wood finishes, and bronzed mirrors.
BHC Salon & Spa owner Franco Marino picked up his first pair of scissors inside his father's barbershop in Italy more than 30 years ago. Today, the master stylist still keeps himself on the "cutting edge of hair design and education," according to Westchester Magazine, with a specialty in subtle, natural-looking color. Besides tinting and trimming inside BHC, Marco has also displayed his skills as a platform artist at CosmoProf in Italy and several International Beauty Shows. Inside his white-walled home base, Franco is backed up by his equally talented staff, which includes a senior stylist with 20 years of experience. And though his rising-star junior stylists are only a few years out of beauty school, they've all received direct training from him, honing skills that inspired Westchester Magazine to name the salon the area's Best Bargain Haircut in 2010.
Nestled within Bella Vita Salon, where beauty experts undergo continuing education to stay up-to-date on industry trends and techniques, Spalishus coddles frames with a range of indulgent services. Inside private treatment rooms swathed in earth tones, aestheticians analyze skin before setting to work with custom facials that rely on high-quality skincare products to tone and moisturize. The spa’s staff also whisk away unwanted body hair with waxes and electrolysis, and forge bronzer bods through California Tan spray-tanning solutions and Sun Capsule Eclipse UV beds.
Seated in a comfy chair before an ornate full-length mirror, guests to Hair Inspiration can relax as their coifs are transformed by an expert stylist. The friendly styling team offers smoothing treatments, color, highlights, up-dos and perms, in addition to standard cuts and styles.
