At Uptowne Girl, like any other salon, stylists shape trendy hairstyles as nail technicians groom and polish nails. But there's a catch: About half of the clients are kids. Stylist and co-founder Kerry Coiro, an 18-year veteran of the business, saw an opportunity to provide mother-daughter services in an industry typically geared to one or the other. "Finally I was just like, oh my god, what am I waiting for?" she says. It appears her clients also wondered—though Coiro and her sister Erica Russo opened Uptowne Girl in early May 2012, as of the end of the month they'd already booked three spa parties. Their popularity with the mother-daughter set may partly stem from the salon’s lively look, with a lime-green accent wall abutting intricately patterned wallpaper. Butterfly decals flit over styling stations, where Coiro delivers routine cuts and special-occasion styles for clients of all ages, though kids are her specialty. "It's just such a good feedback,” she says. “They just get so excited." Encouraging their pep is a complimentary snack bar, where clients can sip coffee, lemonade, or nibble cookies into the shape of The Rachel.

When it comes to makeovers, Kerry Corio is versed in head-to-toe beauty secrets, and she has the resume-packing certifications to prove it. Over the course of her nearly two-decade career, she's trained with systems and substances ranging from Yuko Japanese hair straightening and Iso Hair color to GiGi Skincare products and Christine Valmy cosmetics. Now, with the help of her sister Erica, she brings this expertise to clients of all ages and lifestyles at Uptowne Girl Salon. Located in the bustling heart of Montclair, the salon and spa helps patrons work with stylists to design new haircuts, welcome flattering highlights and color, or relax with a mani-pedi. No matter their chosen service, clients always keep one eye on the salon's lively look; a lime-green accent wall abuts intricately patterned wallpaper over each styling station. They can also refuel at a complimentary snack bar, where clients can sip coffee and lemonade.
