Named for the Sanskrit word for “desire,” Trishna attempts to fulfill a woman’s desire to be beautiful by delivering beauty treatments and laser hair-removal services. Trishna’s collection of facials uses herbal ingredients, diamonds, and gold to delay signs of aging, help lymphatic drainage, and oxygenate the skin. The spa staff renders skin smooth with various types of hair-removal treatments, including waxing, threading, laser hair removal, and scaring the hair out by suddenly wearing a good Halloween or Dwight Eisenhower mask.
The stylists at Great Hands Hair Salon know how hard it can be to fit a haircut into a busy schedule. That's why they keep their doors open until 6 p.m. or later Monday–Saturday, and until 4 p.m. on Sundays, so that customers can swing by at a time that's convenient for them. Longer hours also means clients can take advantage of more of the plentiful services offered in the salon, from basic cuts and styles for men and women, to advanced treatments like body waves, color glazing, and protein treatments for damaged hair. Of course, the staff can also tend to below-the-neck beauty as well, doling out relaxing mani-pedis or waxing away unwanted hair in time for luge season.
At Long Island Laser Group, certified laser specialist Deborah employs three different lasers, each with a specific target. For unwanted hair, the Light Sheer Diode device destroys hair follicles on all body areas and skin types. Simultaneously, the laser's cooling hand piece soothes surrounding skin to ensure minimal irritation and no downtime. Meanwhile, the intense pulsed light system can rid skin of blemishes such as acne, age spots, and wrinkles. For fungus-stricken toenails, Deborah relies on the PinPointe Footlaser, whose wavelengths are absorbed only by fungus, never the surrounding skin. Though treatments don't instantly clear nails, they pave the way for each nail to grow out fungus-free.
When Angel Tips opened the doors to its single Long Island store in 1996, it had a simple premise: to offer professional nail, waxing, and beauty services at an affordable price. Although the company has expanded to more than 60 locations across New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut since then, their focus on professionalism remains the same. They even require all of their licensed professionals to hone their skills at a specialized training center in Connecticut.
Though Angel Tips expertly performs waxing services and installs eyelash extensions, their specialty lies in nail care. Their technicians perform traditional, gel, and acrylic manicures, as well as specialty pedicures with paraffin and hot stone massages. Cleanliness, like professionalism and affordability, is a top priority; all locations use sanitized tools, disposable files and buffer pads, and pedicure chairs that have fully outgrown their teenage grunge phases.
Offering a full suite of services, the staff members of Salon D'Artista and Spa beautify and makeover visitors with precision cuts, hair coloring, permanent makeup, and facial waxing. Stylists tame manes within a colorful space marked by rust-colored walls and rows of red chairs, and aestheticians perform a range of shadow-puppet shows and facials with Dermalogica products while tucked away in private, pastel-colored rooms.
The opposite of a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside of an enigma, SophistiCut Salon & Spa is a pampering haven wrapped inside another pampering haven. The salon and spa sets up shop inside Long Island Marriott hotel's beautifying oasis, and it’s no secret what happens there. Professional stylists and aestheticians pamper clients with a full menu of services. Though these range from signature haircuts to color applications and highlights, the versatile staff's skills, like Vulcan ears, extend far past hair. Hot stones and aromatherapy oils ripple across muscles like a coin dropped into a sink full of milk, and aestheticians deep clean skin and shrink pores with facials.
