Master coiffer Vasken Demirgian—L’Oreal Colour Specialist and namesake of the salon—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. Sport a softer, shiner crop with a ritual conditioning treatment and blowout, which begins with an initial consultation with a trained Kérastase professional. After unleashing their wildness hair dreams and Freudian slips, guests recline in custom-made, ergonomically correct German styling chairs and receive a conditioning scalp massage complete with specially selected products tailored to client needs. After the conditioning treatment, stylists dry and sculpt tresses with warm air and alluring phrases uttered in French.
Alternatively, expertly trained master barbers smooth cheeks and chins with 45-minute deluxe hot-towel shaves, which begin with the application of a hot towel and a protective layer of pre-shave oil. Specialists work the shaving cream into a rich, hot lather before using a traditional straight razor to prune away face bristles, shaving with the grain once, re-lathering, and shaving against the grain a second time for added closeness and cosmic symmetry. A second hot towel infused with calming essential oil swaddles shorn faces, and an after-shave mask and massage restores the skin’s natural moisture. The treatment ends with a cold towel infused with a balancing essential oil to soothe pores and after-shave balm to hydrate and protect just-shaven skin. Guests are welcome to sip on frothy cups of fresh cappuccino while lounging amid crisp white walls and red accents or take advantage of the salon’s free valet parking.
Vasken Demirjian Salon
Master coiffeur Vasken Demirjian, a L’Oréal 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 Kérastase and L'Oréal 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.
