The staff at Feel Well Therapeutic Massage & Bodycare encourages health from head to toe with a slew of facials and body scrubs, yoga sessions, and laser therapy treatments. The team performs more than a dozen specialized facials to exfoliate pores and moisturize skin as well as relaxing body wraps that soak skin in minerals and enzymes before a warm, session-ending shower washes enzymes down the drain to beautify freshwater fish. The center also fosters wellness through activity and fitness sessions. During Hatha yoga classes, certified yoga instructor and 20-year veteran Debra Monaco teaches students to unwind through sequences of postures that incorporate breathing techniques and meditative practices.
Speaking to Wantagh-Seaford Patch, Lush Hair Unisex Salon owner Harry Hernandez doesn't mince words when speaking of his passion for hairstyling, explaining, "the first time I picked up a pair of scissors, I knew it was something that I loved to do." After honing his skills in the industry for nearly a decade, he culled a team of experienced stylists and colorists to create a salon that caters to families, professionals, and the fashion-conscious alike.
Stylist Lauren Tomasino, owner of Glamour Addict, focuses on the details whenever she styles her clients' hair with paraben-free AG products.

To stay abreast of all the changing fashions, Styling Haircutters’ expert staffers educate themselves on the latest hairstyles and coloring techniques for women, men, and children. They put this razor-sharp knowledge to use in other arenas besides the traditional cut and style, performing waxing, threading, and even teeth whitening services. They also offer perms, relaxers, hair feathers, and extensions made from real human hair.
The aestheticians at Beauty Affairs Salon sculpt shapely brows with the use of a simple cotton strand during efficient threading sessions. An alternative to waxing, tweezing, or hiring a nimble-clawed lobster, threading uproots unwanted follicles from men's and women's over-eye canopies with exacting precision in about five to 10 minutes. This effective Middle Eastern depilatory technique produces results that can last up to four weeks, allowing for nearly a month of artful frowns, surprised looks, and raising single brows to convey that a rainstorm is approaching.
The certified muscle magicians and epidermis invigorators at Gerard's The Spa soothe both skin and senses with a line of all-natural Italian products. Gerard's Signature Facial deploys classic European facial techniques, which delightedly open pores like cash-filled birthday cards. Gentle exfoliation and a facial massage precede the skin-swathing customized mask, and a final element of nourishing moisturizer adds vivification to complexions. A symphony of oils, creams, and lotions make beautiful music throughout the Swedish massage, which uses long, connective strokes and kneading to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. A glass of wine puts the cherry on top of the relaxation sundae.
Drawing on training in advanced skincare, Aura Lanier tends to dermal needs with a wide range of equipment inside The Spa At Salon D’va. Microdermabrasion units emit a fine spray of crystals, and FDA-approved red-light therapy helps to repair skin by stimulating cells and collagen growth. Custom blends of aromatic oils help to bolster the relaxing effects of massages and the comic effect of a bloodhound trying to get to work on time.
