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.
No amount of frizz is too much for Alyssa. At Ultimate Touch Salon, the stylist tames tresses with professional relaxers and keratin and Japanese straightening treatments. Clients with straight strands can benefit from Alyssa?s perms, which leave manes wavier than a corkscrew's water slide. In addition, she offers haircuts, which range from classic to modern and are accented by face-framing highlights and vivid single-process hues.

Nuriel Abramov and Gabriel Abrams founded Numi & Company because they "wanted to give Westchester women something that's fresh and new." So they took their upscale Manhattan training and experience?some of which included styling celebrities for Allure and contestants on America's Next Top Model?out of the city and built two sleek and acclaimed salon locations. Nominated Best of the Decade by Westchester Magazine, both Abramov and Abrams know that a refined yet friendly atmosphere isn't enough to lure style-savvy women to their door?their first concern is hair. Abrams? less-is-more approach shapes the line of attack for their team of stylists, who focus on finding what works best for the individual rather than recreating what hair looks great on a beach ball.
B Spa and 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.
Treatment at Advanced Laser & Medical Spa of Rye usually begins with a consultation with a medical aesthetician with supervision from board-certified medical director, Dr. Micheline Giovani. Being onsite allows her to oversee the med spa?s staff and array of services, which include Botox injections, microdermabrasions, non-invasive facelift Ultherapy, and chemical peels. More technologically advanced cosmetic techniques include acoustic-wave therapy for thickening collagen in cellulite-prone areas and laser therapy for removing skin blemishes and body hair.
