X-S 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.
Though the stylists at Hair & Beyond specialize in classic bridal hairdos, they feel just as comfortable reshaping clients' locks into assertive contemporary looks. The stylists employ expertly mixed colors, flatirons, and keratin treatments to transform drab tresses into custom styles. According to Patch, the salon's shelves brim with haircare balms from Joico, Iso, and ReNu, ensuring that stylists have enough tools at their disposal to mold coifs or shampoo an entire woolly mammoth. Particularly passionate about the community, Hair & Beyond's stylists have offered their scissor skills to many a worthy cause, including the Beauty for a Cure cancer-center fundraiser in 2011.
Warehouse lights dangle from the high ceilings of Hopscotch Salon, illuminating the styling chairs and leaving guests with the impression that rogue designers snuck in at midnight to erect the upscale cutting station. More than 15 stylists hone their craft in the open area, along with a full roster of colorists, aestheticians, nail techs, and makeup artists. The crew offers haircuts, highlights, and corrective color, along with bridal updos and extensions. Stylists also carefully select product lines such as Oribe—which are scented with French perfumes—and Bumble and bumble—which are designed to be mixed and layered for custom hair effects.
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.
After honing their styling abilities in the elegant salons of southern Italy, brothers Luigi and Piero Pirri set their sights on London. The goal was to acquire the advanced technical skills required in a world of constantly evolving style. At their two salons in Greenwich and Eastchester, the brothers now lead a professional styling team while utilizing the techniques they have gathered in their journey of more than 20 years.
While crafting styles for regular clients or models of New York City's Fashion Week, the salon team utilizes products from the brothers' own product line, Pirri Elements. Each shampoo or conditioner from Pirri Elements contains a few droplets of essential bergamot oil, which helps to leave hair beautiful and manageable, unlike a job letting billionaires tousle your hair.
