Redesigned Hair Salon

Vision of Tomorrow
Larchmont; www.visionoftomorrow.com

The gorgeous new interiors of this longtime salon are a major wow! Now as stunning as its talented stylists make their clients look, the sleek monochrome design gives the space a facelift, with all-new modern furniture and bright lighting, offering an upmarket, airy vibe.


Eyebrow Specialist

Mehmet Koray at Meg-a-Lashes
Rye/White Plains; www.megalashesny.com

Perfectly coiffed eyebrows make a world of a difference when it comes to framing your face. Not convinced? Pay a weekend visit to internationally in-demand brow specialist Mehmet Koray at Meg-a-Lashes for threading (he is in White Plains on Fridays and Rye on Saturdays), and within 15 minutes, he’ll artfully transform your bushy brows into a well-groomed shape that complements your best facial features.

Aesthetician

Diana Rainsford at POSH Beauty Boutique
Bronxville; www.poshbronxville.com

At her pristine, serene Bronxville spa POSH Beauty Boutique, aesthetician Diana Rainsford offers her extensive skincare knowledge to clients with customized facials (our favorite is the HydraFacial), massages, reflexology, and body scrubs.


Eyelash Technician

Sandra Guarriello at Iconic Lash Lounge
Yorktown Heights; www.iconiclashlounge.com

Dial up the drama with the latest beauty trend: long, luscious eyelashes. This ultra-chic, tranquil North County spa lives up to the hype, with owner Sandra Guarriello having garnered a cult-like following for her gentle, skillful application of showstopping semi-permanent lash extensions. The high-quality adhesive and lashes (cashmere, faux mink, silk) she uses make for extravagant, lightweight face-framing fans that will have you looking glam 24/7.


Nail Salon

Tiffany Nail & Spa
Rye

A traditional manicure-pedicure here may feel more indulgent than what you might expect from a standard nail salon — especially when paired with a 10-minute massage during your service. The friendly staff, clean environment, and airy space filled with natural light serve as a welcoming hour-long respite from your afternoon errands. Pro tip: The spa boasts a few convenient, complimentary parking spots (a gem in Rye).

Pre-Vacay Pampering

GLOW
Armonk, Scarsdale, and Rye Brook; www.glow-tone.com

Before a vacation (and after quarantine), you might want to give your appearance some TLC. Stop by GLOW for a full makeover: custom airbrush tanning for a natural bronze; body-sculpting services, like cryo T-Shock for fat freezing, skin tightening to tone loose skin, and wood therapy (a wooden tool stimulates the lymphatic system to remove pockets of fat and cellulite); anti-aging and rejuvenating facials; and brow shaping/tinting and eyelash tinting.


Natural Bath Products

Sacred Seeds
Yonkers; www.sacredseeds4u.com

What you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it. You eat organic, so why not use organic skincare products? Jennifer Perry travels the globe for organic ingredients for her plant-based, handmade skincare line, which includes artisan soaps, scrubs, and bath salts. Our favorites: the cherry-almond sugar scrub and lemongrass body polish.

New Hair Salon

Igor M Salon
White Plains; www.igormsalon.com

Have your tresses tamed by celebrity stylist Igor Musayev, known for his work at the famed Louis Licari salon in Manhattan and for transforming many on the “Ambush Makeover” segment on NBC’s Today. At his year-old, 2,500 sq. ft. sleek salon in White Plains, Musayev’s team of five offers killer blowouts, color, and his signature hot-scissors cut, which seals the cuticle while cutting it.


Obstacle-Course Fitness

Grit Ninja
Pleasantville; www.thegritninja.com

Ever marvel at how the superhuman contestants on American Ninja Warrior conquer the show’s impossible obstacles? The staff at this Pleasantville gym will show you how. Highly skilled ninjas who have competed on the NBC show will help you (or your child) tackle the salmon ladder, warped wall, ropes, and rings — a dynamic and difficult workout that develops strength, agility, and killer confidence.


CrossFit Gym

CrossFit Valkyrie
Elmsford; www.crossfitvalkyrie.com

Several members of our staff have dropped by this outstanding Elmsford gym, so trust us when we say that this is one of the best places to go for a high-intensity sweat session. With top-notch coaching, courtesy of former Best of Westchester winner Zoey Utko, as well as a host of other knowledgeable trainers, this is an excellent spot to safely discover what the popular workout regimen is all about.


Place to Learn to Chill Out 

TM Westchester
Katonah; www.tm.org/transcendental-meditation-westchester-county

Yes, TM is still a thing and actually on a huge upswing with recent medical research espousing its benefits. Headed by veterans Sam and Melody Katz, this is the place to learn to meditate your anxiety, insomnia, and other worries away while increasing concentration (used for students with ADD) and overall well-being.
