Rainbow World Nail decks out finger shields with high-quality products by brands such as OPI, Color Club, and Essie. The modern nail salon also offers an array of high-tech equipment such as warm UV lights for fast nail drying, pedicure chairs that self disinfect themselves, and gas-powered nail clippers.
Instead of spreading herself thin over an exhaustive menu of aesthetic treatments, La’Shawn Sterling—the sole practitioner at her eponymous skin studio—has mastered four services. And she stands behind them proudly, christening them all as “ultimate” treatments. For the ultimate facial, she uses a personalized blend of Dermalogica products selected to improve specific skin conditions; for the ultimate body treatment, a circulation-stirring massage precedes a coating of a hydrating brown-sugar scrub. La’Shawn also performs facial waxing and applies individual lash extensions, accenting faces more pleasantly than umlaut tattoos above each eye.
Lazur La Vie founder Cheryl Anne brings an impressive amount of beauty-industry experience to her med spa, including stints in professional image consulting, makeup artistry, and skincare distribution. She gives complimentary consultations to clients before any treatment, helping them to sift through the spa's lengthy list of skin and body treatments. Lasers can be found throughout the menu, targeting everything from yellowing smiles to gravity-stricken skin on a mission to touch the toes.
Inside this full-service hair and nail salon, a team of stylists uses the latest treatments to update looks. Keratin formulas create smooth, shiny manes that are complemented by trendy cuts and color treatments. Nail technicians, meanwhile, adorn tips with long-lasting gel or airbrushed artwork. All treatments take place amid Salon 141’s elegant decor of twinkling chandeliers, warm wood finishes, and bronzed mirrors.
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.
