With tiki-hut decor and a tropical vibe, Tanfasia offers bronzing options that keep bodies looking like they just came from the beach. Their UV beds deliver three different strengths of rays, from low to high intensity, whereas spray tans imbue skin with golden tones without the sun's assistance. Teeth-whitening sessions make smiles glow, and, like a pet bear, Fit infrared body wraps can help chase away extra inches from a winter spent trying to hibernate.
Dianne Ciprano knows the benefits of a good education. The skin specialist trained at both the Gloria Francis Institute of Beauty and the New York Institute of Beauty, perfecting the skills that she now uses every day at When Style Counts. When she isn’t cleansing pores or softening skin with seven types of facials, Dianne continues to brush up on the latest spa techniques through continuing education courses at Dermal Institute in NYC. One thing she has learned is not to skimp on products. That’s why she reaches for professional Repechage serums as she tailors her treatments to soothe sensitive skin or cover up exposed circuitry.
Upon visiting, you will quickly become enchanted by the city-like aura. Anchored in the heart of Long Island, Off 7th Hair Salon captures the flair and sophistication of an archetypical loft studio of NYC-- it’s simply Manhattan flavor emanating off Fashion Avenue.
At Visage Skincare Spa and Cosmetic Laser Center, a highly trained staff cultivates beauty and wellness with relaxation services and anti-aging treatments. Part med spa and part day spa, the facility teems with massage therapists who knead away muscle tension, paramedical aestheticians who tighten skin with Thermage treatments, and board-certified nurse practitioners who inject FDA-approved wrinkle smoothers such as Botox and Juvéderm. More high-tech than a horse-drawn spaceship, a Visia imaging system guides complexion analyses, measuring sun damage and hyperpigmentation to help technicians build custom skincare plans. The spa also doubles as a party destination, where revelers can indulge in champagne and hors d’oeuvres between facials and massages.
Although they moved to new, larger digs in April 2012, the team of expert stylists at Renaissance Salon still delivers the same trusted cuts, colors, and salon services that they've been doling out since 2007. Senior colorists Jennifer and Jessica excel at enriching locks with dimensional color, whereas bridal expert Krista dominates when it comes to readying clients for weddings. Michelle issues precision snips that transform played-out looks into fashionable 'dos, and trendsetter Julie remains ever-vigilant in the hunt for the most adventurous styles. The senior teams is joined by a crew of five fellow stylists and two assistants, but no matter their relative experience levels, their training expectation remains the same; all staff members at Renaissance Salon are required to attend at least two advanced-training seminars annually.
More than 30 years after its inception, Cactus Salon & Spa and its team of continually educated stylists have not lost their edge—they earned the Long Island Press’s designation as Best Hair Salon and Best Day Spa in 2012. It's not surprising, then, that the salon has enjoyed such impressive growth over the years, with more than two dozen locations now blanketing most of Long Island. Though hair is still the focus—stylists craft hairdos that reflect either everyday ease or fashion-forward thinking—the repertoire has expanded to include everything from nail treatments and massages to permanent cosmetics and laser services. Since the roster of services is so broad, many clients take advantage of Cactus Club memberships, which give them the flexibility to try multiple services by deactivating the force fields between treatment rooms and granting a 33% discount on products and services on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.
Sweety Beauty Salon has the basics covered. Haircuts, bold color, and facial and body waxing options have their slots on the service menu. However, its stylists and aestheticians also delve into more specialized territory. They offer refreshing facials, facial threading, and eyelash extensions. In addition, they adorn clients' skin with henna tattoos, which showcase the exquisite detail of the Indian body art form.
