NuBest, Manhasset

NuBest is more like a wellness center than a salon and spa. Located in the iconic Americana Manhasset mall, this multi-level, 20,000 foot space offers everything from pilates to skincare treatments. Hair clients leave with bouncy, silky locks, while skin treatments produce summer glows even on cloudy days. And dudes don’t have to trade their man cards in for treatments—Billy Joel and LL Cool J are among NuBest’s roster of clients.  Phone: 516-627-9444 | Address: 1482 Northern Blvd. Click for bliss

Cactus Salon & Day Spa, Multiple Locations

This salon has been blowing clients away with its hair, beauty and spa treatments since Joseph Secreti opened the first one in Dix Hills in 1978. There are now 21 Cactus locations, all offering clients the chance to relax and rejuvenate. The blowouts turn dry hair silky, and the spa pedicure will put you back on your feet’s nice list.

Prism Wellness Salon, St. James

Owner Janine Argile doesn’t just want clients to leave feeling relaxed—she wants them to leave with an uplifted smile. It’s hard not to grin from ear to ear after a Vitamin C facial, which restores skin with antioxidant vitamins or a one-hour massage. Phone: 631-686-5415 | Address: 420 Lake Ave. Click for bliss 

Revitalize Esthetics, East Norwich

Melanie Raik’s calm and happy demeanor is known to put customers at ease just as much as her treatments. One of Revitalize Esthetics’ popular offerings, the ultimate scrub, includes a warm body scrub followed by a butter massage. It leaves skin smooth and glowing and the mind and body at ease—which is actually how it should be, especially in the summer. Phone: 516-413-3284 | Address: 6310 Northern Blvd. Click for bliss

Twist Beauty Bar, East Norwich

Revitalize Esthetics’ upstairs neighbor Twist Beauty Bar has a menu that includes hair, makeup and injectables. The staff is up on the latest trends in each but never pressures a client who comes in for the usual. The salon also hosts a variety of events throughout the year, including fashion shows and wine tasting, because sometimes a girls’ night out is so necessary.

Bocu, Commack

This day spa isn’t your typical two-room deal with a faux fireplace. Bocu’s spa is 1,500-square-feet and includes a private waiting room, four facial and massage rooms and a locker room with rainforest showers and an aroma therapy steam room. Clients can relax in between treatments, which includes a seaweed or spa milk pedicure, by the Koi pond, where lunch and tea is served.

Osio Salon, Rockville Centre


Osio Salon’s feel is decidedly elegant. Chandeliers hang from the ceilings and chairs are plush and made of black leather. The notably amiable staff invites clients to sink into one, sip a cappuccino and let the pros massage, file or condition their bodies, nails and hair back to life.
