LoriJane’s minimalist décor and wood floors provide a clean, comfortable backdrop for a day of relaxation and restoration. The internationally trained aestheticians on staff have committed their lives to skin-smoothing servitude and spa care. Revitalize a lackluster epidermis and shake off the dust acquired while sitting beneath a rarely used ceiling fan with the 50-minute European Facial. Excess dirt and dead skin cells are gently lifted from the face via a deep pore cleansing and natural exfoliation, leaving the skin as smooth and soft as a velour banana. The facial aficionados will also administer a stress-reducing massage, purifying mask, and hydrating treatment, which combine to bestow heads with a healthier appearance and a younger-looking outer layer.
Pure Eco-Wellness Salon and Spa's team is so focused on natural treatments, they even strive to emulate natural light.This belief in nature's beautifying and healing capacity also suffuses their treatments. They brighten their chic haircuts, for example, with botanical, organic color, and their facials combat conditions from acne to aging with natural ingredients. Their vegan nail polish is infused with ecocert-certified bamboo for stronger nails, and contains no DBP, Toluene, Camphor, formaldehyde, or formaldehyde resin. Their commitment extends to their eco-friendly business practices, too, which range from recycling to cleaning with products that contain no chemicals nor monster-truck parts.
Stylists and aestheticians at The Face & Body Spa cultivate coiffures and nourish skin using products with an organic, vegan focus. That means that body scrubs exfoliate with organic sugarcane, nails glimmer with SpaRitual vegan polish, and hair color is ammonia-free, an eco-friendly approach that makes pampering sessions feel simultaneously as virtuous and enjoyable as volunteering at Willy Wonka's soup kitchen.
The spa's Eastern influence shows up in both the services—body workers use acupuncture and Reiki energy therapy—and the decor. Stone buddha heads broadcast calm throughout lounge areas, and live bamboo and potted trees add a minimalistic reminder of the staff's natural inspirations.
The aestheticians at Blu Salon are dedicated to pampering and treating besieged skin in an eclectic and soothing environment, free of elitist attitudes and imported cockatoos.

The 60-minute Anti-Aging Facial ($120) replenishes moisture and hydration lost to years of sunny days and skies with scattered clouds. Well-mannered men with unruly razors can soothe sensitive skin and irritation with the Gentleman's Facial ($90, 45 minutes). The blow-dry ($40+) that follows your countenance cleansing is a full-fledged hair helper that includes a shampoo, salon styling, hand exfoliation, and head-and-neck massage.
The vivid violet walls at New Attitude Hair Design reflect the upbeat charm and feminine sophistication the salon staff brings to its work. Owner Meera’s passionate team of stylists, colorists, and waxing technicians take pride in crafting custom looks. The salon's forte is special-occasion updos; the stylists wind curly tendrils for prom, weave loose braids for beach weddings, and mold beehive dos for weddings held on honey farms.
“Excellent of its kind”—one of the lesser-known definitions of the word beautiful—is a guiding principle for the staff at Beautiful Waxing Boutique. They use the most advanced techniques and natural products available to provide expert, comfortable hair-removal services in a tranquil, elegant boutique. The wax used in the salon is made with organic ingredients, such as naturally antibacterial beeswax, and each service can be customized to each client’s hair and skin type. All-natural, locally made body scrubs soothe the skin and thwart ingrown hairs with essential oils and Dead-Sea salt. For clients who are obsessed with sussing out patterns, the sugaring services also feature housemade, organic products.
With a workspace that spans 13,000 square feet and two stories, Lawrence SpaRex has plenty of room to pamper its clients privately and comfortably. Tucked away from all the nail treatments, haircuts, and massages, the facility’s dry sauna relaxes visitors with infrared panels that warm the body like natural sunlight without the potential damaging effects of UV rays. Layers of seaweed clay coat the walls not only in the sauna but also throughout the facility, providing a healthy alternative to paint and a more practical alternative to silly string.
This unassuming brick storefront gives way to a full-service salon where stylists excel at men’s, women’s, and children’s haircuts, as well as highlights, all-over color, and perms. Dry, dull locks are a thing of the past after a session with one of the talented, scissor-bearing staff members, who use deep conditioners to imbue locks with much-needed moisture or use ombre coloring techniques to create cascading curls in multiple hues. Beyond the blow-dryer, the staff also deals with unwanted strands by waxing away hair from the brows, sideburns, chins, and lips or even from the full face.
Small glowing bulbs line the gabled ceiling like holiday ornaments, illuminating the salon's vine-scored partitions, honey-gold walls, and polished wood floors. Amid these accents, skilled stylists manipulate manes with high-end products by Redken and Paul Mitchell. An aesthetician offers makeup sessions and stifles hair growth by way of waxing, threading, or depriving follicles of vegetables.
After owning and operating salons and spas in Mercer County for more than 25 years, stylist Robert Cacciabaudo—whose looks have graced the pages of Glamour, Elle, and Philadelphia magazines—envisioned a tranquil beauty oasis where customers could enjoy cutting-edge hair services and relaxing spa services under one roof. His dream became a reality in 2002: On the first floor of a renovated, two-story building outfitted with elegant French-country décor, a hair salon blends classic style with the latest beauty trends and technologies. On the second floor, private treatment rooms host nail services, waxing, massages, Dermalogica facials, and Mac makeup applications.
Catering to adults as well as children, Classy Clippers—a neighborhood fixture for 25 years—welcomes clients with complimentary coffee, tea, and cookies. After settling in and engaging in an in-depth consultation, the skilled stylists treat clients to services ranging from highlights to high-quality extensions to elegant updos.
Though some salons tout themselves as family friendly, Classy Clippers backs up the claim with a special children's area decked out in coloring books and candy. And, in addition to lounging and playing, youngsters can receive a cut and style as the diligently contemplate which look will make the biggest splash at the preschool prom.

For people who return to enjoy the spa’s services over multiple trips, Necessities provides membership packages that include access to a VIP lounge, use of robes and slippers, and the ability to hear a host of trumpets playing whenever they walk into a room.
If Guys & Dolls Hair Salon & Spa has a homey feel, it's probably because the space that now brims with scissors, haircare solutions, and nail polish was until the 1970s a cozy home lined with family portraits and a checklist of uncles banned from family reunions. Today, stylists Vicki Berrien and Heather Guagliardo are at the reins, showcasing their decades of experience styling hair, cleansing skin with facials, and accentuating eyes with eyelash extensions.
At Hair’s to You, stylists and beauticians strive to bring out each client’s natural beauty. They do so with services for hair, skin, and nails including cuts and color and shellac manicures.
