The stylists at The Glam Caf? spruce up heads of hair with services ranging from simple cuts to full weaves. To keep tresses nourished and healthy, they use products such as sulfate- and paraben-free Biomega products, as well as relaxers from Affirm and colors from Redken and Clairol. A team of skincare professionals also stand by to wax eyebrows, lips, and chins, or contour cheekbones and highlight eyes with makeup applications.
Named Westchester Magazine's top Scalp-Tingling Experience in 2010, James Deagan Salon harnesses its stylists' beautifying experience to style hair and relaxingly sedate the head that holds it. While inside the intimate, boutique-like salon, follicles will have their forked ends fashionably severed to promote healthy hair growth and to put under pillows for the split-end fairy. Before the snip fest, hairologists will work with clients sitting in front of large, introspective mirrors to decide how to style manes in a way that most attractively frames faces. After a thorough wash, cut, and style, the approximately one-hour process wraps up by drying locks with the warmth of a blow dryer or the centripetal airflow of 150 chair spins.
Salon S, a stylish space backed by 30 years of tradition, caters to crew-cut crusaders and beehive brandishers alike with a variety of services. The custom haircut includes a complimentary shampooing, conditioning, and blow drying ($55 for women, $35 for men) and pairs vibrantly with an all-over color treatment ($50 base price for single process). Beyond beautifying follicular bundles, Salon S also whips finer areas into shape with custom make-up applications ($55+) and waxing care for the lips ($10), brows ($15), and Brazil ($45). All services come standard with a personally tailored touch and the atmospheric pleasures of vibrant, in-house track lighting and soothing, earth-toned walls.

Master coiffeur Vasken Demirjian, a L?Or?al Color Specialist, mans a fleet of European-trained stylists so adept at pampering tresses and faces that Westchester magazine anointed their work the Best of the Decade. After valets whisk away coaches free of charge, stylists froth a fresh cappuccino and lead guests to custom-made, ergonomically correct styling chairs from Germany for a personalized shampoo. Using K?rastase and L'Or?al products, the stylists paint on face-framing highlights, administer custom makeovers, and sculpt bold and classic cuts for men and women that have landed them a list of media praise longer than the index in Webster's Dictionary.
Aside from the superior work of Vasken and his stylists, the salon's decor dominates the news buzz, as it nabbed Salon Design of the Year in the 2010 North American Hairstyling Awards. "A simple sheet of clean, white paper inspired the overall look," writes Salon Today?and it's easy to see how Vasken's work in the art industry inspired the great white canvas, which he has accented with touches of crimson. A stark red countertop pops amid a sea of white furnishings, and a row of rouge lampshades frames the hundreds of white parts that make up the salon's "floating ceiling." Just as a piece of paper recedes to let words or sketches spring forth, the minimalist decor only serves to highlight the final glamorous styles that emerge within.
