At Drybar, a pair of scissors or hair-coloring foil is nowhere to be found. That?s because the business?s founder, Alli Webb, opened the shop strictly for blowouts after her in-home business skyrocketed. Featured extensively in the media, each of the more than 40 white-hued, airy shops revolves around a center bar where customers sit for around 45 minutes as stylists blow-dry, straighten, and curl their hair. From a menu booklet, clients select a cocktail-themed hairstyle, such as The Mai Tai, which imparts beachy waves, and The Manhattan, which streamlines locks with a sleek finish that mimics the straight lines of downtown New York and can be outfitted with a tiny doorman who hails cabs for you. The staff at Drybar also crafts updos, travels on location for an additional fee, offers high-end products and tools available for purchase, and tallies bar tabs so that customers can pay for multiple blowouts at once.
A L'Oréal concept salon, Atelier of Roslyn’s team includes senior- and master-level platform portfolio artists, and many of the salon's stylists have experience working Fashion Week. In a space reminiscent of an artist’s loft, stylists accomplish services such as men’s and women’s cuts as well as retexturing and coloring treatments, all with passion and a flair for creativity.
When it came to naming their environmentally friendly beauty destination, Hope and Jeanie chose the Greek word FOS, which means light. At FOS LIVING Eco Salon, Spa & Store, clients are welcomed into a relaxing environment where organic products, skilled aestheticians, and good health for both people and the environment are at the forefront.
When coloring hair, stylists use the most natural brands they can find for services including highlights, single-process color, gray coverage, and smoothing treatments. When Hope or Jeanie can't find a product that meets their rigorous standards, they put on gloves and whisk up their own organic products without compromising the quality of the result.
When they apply makeup, they use a proprietary line of cosmetics devoid of mercury, lead, parabens, and other harmful chemicals. Hope even created her own facial serums, which are never heated and packed with natural and organic oils from Ikaria, Greece. Clients can experience these products and others during spa treatments and hair services, or buy some for use at home. While they're at it, they can also purchase Hope's jewelry designs, which have been highlighted on Vogue.com.
Amid the ample restaurants and shopping of Roosevelt Field mall sits The Cactus Academy- A Paul Mitchell Partner School, an over 20,000-square-foot cosmetology mecca where experienced cosmetology instructors help students perfect their skills. Guests to the academy's student salon can seek out the talents of fledgling stylists for a haircut, blowout, or multidimensional color, all performed under the watchful eyes of helpful mentors. The academy also gives back to the community through its annual fundraising campaign, which benefits multiple local and national charities.

The boutique salon welcomes customers into its relaxed environment with a full service menu and a friendly, experienced staff. Within the walls of the environmentally-friendly atmosphere, stylists specialize in restoring luster to tired strands with deep-conditioning formulas and color treatments such as ombre highlights using ammonia-free Redken Chromatics. The innovative process introduces a gradual fade from dark to light, much like the original version of Romeo and Juliet, which ends with the dagger and poison vile singing ?Whistle While You Work.?
