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.
The staff at The Salon at Westchester, Inc. lets their advanced training show in their lengthy service menu, which includes haircuts, coloring, extensions, straightening treatments, antifrizz treatments, and eyelash extensions. They also specialize in making and servicing natural hairpieces and wigs, which instill confidence in balding men, women, and eagles. And to make sure their customers are completely satisfied, every service or product they provide is completely personalized to each client's desires.
Despite being in business for more than 30 years, Young & Classy Hair Salon still has its finger on the pulse of modern fashion, staying abreast of all the latest trends and styles. As a result, clients benefit from both experience and from a contemporary eye. The team excels at haircuts, trims, and coloring procedures, as well as keratin treatments designed for hair that won't lay flat. Young & Classy's stylists also specialize in special events, creating styles and updos to prep any bride, bridesmaid, or spotlight-stealing organist for the big day.
When it comes to prepping clients for special occasions, the stylists at Ultimate Image Salon are on their A-game. They braid, twist, and curl hair into updos and add tiny flowers, headbands, and jeweled pins for extra drama. The staff also perfects day-to-day looks with new cuts and coloring options such as highlights, lowlights, and glow-in-the-dark dye.
At 12 years old, Alfredo Boccasini walked the streets of Bari, Italy from his home to the local salon, where he worked as a shampoo boy. He thrived in the business, and his new skills took him to Rome, then New York. As a member of the Congress of Colorists, he helped created new hair-color products used by the world's top colorists. In 1998, Alfredo opened Salon Savoir, where he's showcased some of his finest work on models, celebrities, and actresses. Not content to rest on his laurels, Alfredo routinely travels to attend seminars on new techniques, which he employs at the salon.
The stylists at Avanti Hair Salon know their products. They’ve experimented with many over the years, but they keep coming back to seven professional brands—including volume-enhancing standbys such as Moroccanoil and Joico—when the time comes to relax kinks with keratin smoothing treatments or add a dash of pep to hair with double-process color.
Regardless of the service, appointments always begin with a consultation, during which the stylist analyzes your hair type and learns your individual style preferences. She uses these preferences to sculpt a unique hairdo and offer tips for at-home care, advising against shortcuts such as sticking a comb in an electrical socket and hoping for the best. The beauty pros also tackle hands and feet with manicures, french pedicures, and applications of brightly hued nail polish.
