If you’re looking for one of the hidden best Hamptons spas, you can head to Wainscott and feel like you are walking into an exotic spa right out of Indochine.  La Don was created by Thuyen Nguyen to feel like a beautifully decorated Far East meets East End oasis.  Nguyen wanted to raise the bar on Hamptons spas for his clients who enjoy the intimacy and exclusivity of the private setting.  “I wanted to avoid a retail setting that felt cold or clinical and instead create something that felt like a home.  It took me a year to decorate.”  The treatment rooms are individually designed to reflect different elements: Air, Water, Metal, Fire, and Earth with special far eastern art and antiques.  You know you are leaving the chaos of a Hamptons summer far behind when you venture behind these doors.

A skilled massage therapist, Nguyen specializes in ridding your body of those knots and tensions you have created.  He also has a unique facial which focuses on massage and lymph drainage with a special cupping process to smooth skin and has created his own line of special face products.

Nguyen has partnered with beauty expert and hair stylist to the stars Kristan Serafino who has a private salon room in the spa.  Serafino’s positive energy greets you immediately.  She always consults with her clients first to discuss their best features and how to emphasize them with the proper cut.  “Your hair is an accessory you wear every day so it should be special and different,” she comments.  “I haven’t had a client leave unhappy yet,” she says with a smile.

It is a treat for Hamptons spa goers to be able to book Serafino who is usually on set or the red carpet with Princess Caroline, Naomi Watts, Emmy Rossum, Krysten Ritter, Stefanie Graf, Matthew McConaughey, or Jimmy Fallon.  Her hair styling and commentary have been featured in leading publications such as Vogue, InStyle, Cosmopolitan, WWD, GQ, Esquire Forbes Brides and many more.  She also oversees SerafinoSays.com her beauty and lifestyle blog.  She also features Kaaral and Salon Tech products, exclusive to La Don Spa.

The beauty in the signature Serafino cut whether it’s a totally new style or updating an existing style is her ability to cut hair so that it moves and flows beautifully.  Think Girl from Ipanema swing.  Now you’re ready to head back into Hamptons high season.
