XS Hair Salon's welcoming, expert stylists beautify hair and enhance shine and texture with a variety of smoothing and deep-conditioning treatments. The Moroccanoil deep-conditioning treatment repairs ends and hydrates hair in 60–90 minutes, restoring shine and bounce to locks grown as rough and dehydrated as a cactus running an ultra-marathon. The salon’s friendly stylists shampoo and condition hair with products imbued with the luster-restoring oil followed by a hair mask. Clients’ freshly oiled hair then sits under a soothing steamer for 20 minutes before finally receiving a cooling rinse and blow-dry to reveal newly shimmery strands.
Meander down a side street in Greenwich, and you may stumble upon the quaint brick building that houses Coppola Tambascio Salon. If you walk inside, you'll meet co-owners Bobby Tambascio and Claudia Coppola—seasoned managers who grew up in salons and began their careers when they were still in their teens. Their services include highlights, coloring treatments, and cuts for men and women. While stylists sculpt coiffures, they take care to flatter each client's unique facial features and lifestyle, whether by smoothing frizzy tresses with keratin treatments or dying them to resemble a dignified face tattoo. When they aren't primping tresses, they beautify faces with waxing, threading, and makeup applications.
At GeMargot Salon, nail buffs revitalize forlorn hands and feet with the latest techniques and polish colors. Throughout the roughly 90-minute session, nails are filed, buffed, and shaped back to their old hexagonal selves, as the aesthetician's trained hands soothe weary mitts and human hooves with an ache-relieving massage. Shellac hues and varnish are then applied to add a splash of color to the finger helmets, as a beam of UV light cures the specially formulated nail paint, rendering it chip-, smudge-, and spackle-free for up to two weeks. Guests can choose a standard shade from the Shellac line, including new hues such as Hot Pop Pink or Wildfire, or opt to highlight talon tips with a french-style frescoing. Ensuring feet don't grow jealous and walk out on their owners, peds are given their own polishing with a standard nail enamel, forgoing the chip-less formula due to their propensity for extremely gentle piano playing.
B Spa & Salon likes to party. The beauty hub opened in 2010 with a gala event attended by industry insiders and Real Housewives of New York City star Ramona Singer, and since then its representatives have frequented events such as the F. A. B. philanthropic party. But while the spa maintains a high profile, its primary concern isn't its own image, but those of its clients. That's why its aestheticians rely on more than 10 facial cocktails and advanced facial treatments, such as microcurrent therapy and LED lights, to promote healthy complexions. It's also why the aestheticians perform both organic sugaring and traditional waxing to deplete the body’s hair supply. Like a daytime TV judge, the salon is good at straightening things out; stylists tame unruly strands with keratin treatments from Coppola and Brazilian Blowout.
At the age of 15, Becker Chicaiza, the future owner of Becker Salon, met a homeless man named Victor in his hometown in Ecuador. He brought the man to his family's home where he gave him food, clothing, and a haircut. Becker's family was impressed with his kindness, but even more so with the way the haircut transformed the man's appearance. Soon after, people in town began to request haircuts and women even asked Becker to color their hair. Spurred on by his success, Becker left Ecuador for Greenwich where he dedicated himself to his craft. Since then, he's made a name for himself in the world of fashion, taking second place at L'Oreal's 2008 Mondial de la Coiffure competition in Paris and working with Zac Posen and Jimmy Choo at New York Fashion Week. He brings all of this experience to Becker Salon, where he and his team of stylists help clients to achieve the looks they've seen on runways and in international airport-security lines. To create those looks, they snip strands and tint them with INOA ammonia-free color or Kerastase products infused with antioxidants. Additionally, a complimentary glass of champagne or cappuccino welcomes clients when they enter the studio.
