Diane Da Costa, the owner of SimpleeBeautiful Westchester, teaches all her stylists the same philosophy: textured hair is gorgeous hair. The salon's treatments are designed to cultivate healthy hair through organic, restorative products, and Diane's stylists pair the styling sessions with chic haircuts, updos, and extensions. Eschewing harsh chemicals, the salon favors products with familiar ingredients such as chocolate, butter, and essential oils. Stylists work skillfully with hairstyles such as cornrows, loc retwists, and twist out, and they remove extensions with minimal pain or paperwork. Men can receive trimming services as well, as staff sculpt their hair into handsome arrangements or perform close, comfortable grooming services.

Federico helps each of his clients find their look, and his versatile range allows him not only the vision to see but the skills to implement them.

Meg-a-Lashes founder Megan Ryan trained at JJ Eyelashes in New York City, where she learned the subtle techniques of eyelash application. Her process is so relaxing and her treatment table is so comfortable, people tend to fall asleep. When they wake up, they’ll find their lids adorned with luxurious mink extensions that don't require makeup. Each initial application takes about 1.5 to 2 hours, giving Megan enough to time carefully adhere each individual extension to the natural lashes.
