Voted best of Westchester for four years by Westchester Magazine, Euro Laser Services quells rebellious bristles using state-of-the-art GentleYAG laser technology, which is kind to skin tones fair, tanned, and dark. After a consultation with a friendly laser lord, hair-plagued patrons kick back for their first laser hair-removal session, in which variable pulses of light target follicles and forbid future growth. An additional two treatments will be scheduled for the same area to set clients on the path to total fur domination.
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.
Hailing from London, England, Nassrin Shams brings more than 30 years of experience to Quintessence Spa.

She treats an array of skincare concerns, but also offers french green-waxing treatments, and detoxifying body wraps.
It's appropriate that the most luxurious spa package at Dream Spa & Salon—which includes an aromatherapy steam shower, a facial, a detoxifying body treatment, a Swedish massage, and a mani-pedi—is named Cloud Nine. Apart from the bliss that name suggests, it also encapsulates the spa’s airy, serene, and cushioned ambiance, which follows guests through private rooms during personalized services. Even the decor, captures the simple elegance of a floating cloud with see-through glass and white orchids on the tables that contrast with soothing gray tones throughout the spa and salon.
Owner and beauty-industry veteran Lori Dodd has a penchant for this type of attention to detail and forward-thinking sophistication. To complement her spa’s streamlined design there is the ultra-comfortable dream lounge with reusable beverage containers, and a decreased reliance on paper for menus. On the salon side of the venue, her hairstylists likewise believe in attractive minimalism and shy away from overcomplicating their cuts, colors, and texturing treatments. Yet the staff's emphasis on a clean aesthetic doesn't deny lavish procedures. Every facial at Dream Spa & Salon includes an essential-oil-infused steam, and guests can benefit from a dreamy shower, included with every massage experience. The team also bronzes clients with even, natural-looking tans via the Suvara spray-tan system.
Studio director Simona Cipriani, like all the instructors at The Art of Control, trained under Romana Kryzanowska, who studied directly under Joseph Pilates himself. The studio, therefore, prides itself on being not only certified, but a direct ideological descendant of Pilates' very inventor.
Many clients come to The Art of Control to take part in group or private lessons, and particularly advanced students can get specialized independent instruction. More than one type of Pilates is practiced at the studio. In mat Pilates, participants work through routines atop their own colorful rectangles, and in reformer Pilates, the Pilates-proprietary workout machines provides resistance to counter participants’ movements, creating an additional strength-training element to build strength and muscle definition. Other classes may incorporate props, such as bands, wedges, and rubber chickens wearing novelty-size sunglasses. Feldenkrais and Zumba classes also speckle the calendar, and teacher-training programs prepare students to teach. Personalized nutrition programs and massage therapy further spoil bodies and increase health. The Art of Control also hosts and participates in events and workshops.
