In 1978 Joseph Secreti opened the first Cactus Salon & Day Spa in Dix Hills, New York.
Through hard work and determination, the Cactus Family grew. Now, with 21 locations and over 700 employees, Joe oversees the most successful Hair Salon business on Long Island. With continuing education and expert training of his staff, Cactus provides the most cutting edge services in the industry. “Whether we are doing basic haircuts or hot off the runway styles, my stylist work to make sure my clients are beyond satisfied” says Joe, “and that has been the secret to my success from the beginning”.
Cactus Salon and Day Spa provides all of the services and amenities that clients look for today. Beyond haircuts and coloring, popular chemical services such as Brazilian Keratin treatments that restore damaged hair, making it smooth and silky, have become one of the most requested services among women. Spa services such as facials and massages are an everyday luxury to the Cactus clients. Hiring only highly trained licensed technicians, Cactus has become a leader in the industry where it comes to receiving relaxing but therapeutic treatments. “From the beginning, I always wanted to have a one stop shop for my clientele” says Joe. “Once the demand on Long Island grew, I found a way to incorporate all of these services under one roof”.
Including services such as nails, permanent cosmetics, make-up, anti-aging treatments, laser services, teeth whitening and more to the growing list of available services, most Cactus locations now provide the “Total Beauty” atmosphere for both men and women across Long Island.
