Inside this chic, hardwood-floored salon, the heads outnumber the bodies. Among the specialties at Ultimate Hair techniques is wig customization, and a look around the room nets views of many a mannequin head crowned in a natural-looking coif. That's just one of the team's many solutions for clients in search of a solution for their thinning hair or hair loss. They also offer surgical hair restoration treatments and can add realistic extensions that can be dyed or altered to appear just like the rest of your hair. To complement those treatments, they also bring their styling skills to everyday salon services, with specialties in creative updos and cuts for curly hair.
The technicians at Natural Color Spray Tans burnish skin with beach-worthy hues without exposure to UV rays. The salon offers three levels of tanning: the original sunless tan, which requires clients to wait 8–12 hours before showering; the express sunless tan, which requires 4–6 hours; and the “30 Minutes to Miami” tan, which allows clients to shower after only 30 minutes. Check out the company’s recommendations before sessions to ensure an even, natural-looking tan.
A line of salon chairs—each facing an ornately framed mirror—hosts clients as stylists snip their hair into modern and timeless cuts. This experienced team also transforms stale looks with shimmering highlights and smoothing keratin treatments. In another area of the day spa, spray-tan technicians coat bodies with a UV-free formula that dries without leaving unsightly streaks or argyle patterns.
Founded by a Hoboken native, E'Clips Salon delivers big-city salon results with small-town affability. Cuts, coloring, conditioning, and blowouts top the menu of services, reinforced by facial-waxing treatments to subtract unwanted whiskers and natural-hair extensions to augment mustaches sprouting from the scalp. The stylists express their dedication to quality with poems written in fine products from Redken, Paul Mitchell, and Joico.
Shampoo JC Hair Salon's stylists draw inspiration from art, music and fashion. Thanks to the artful eyes of the new owners, also of Shampoo Avenue B in NYC, the beauty haven's decor would be right at home in a gallery or record shop. The walls display a rotating selection of local artwork, which might include a collection of old albums, or paintings inspired by rock 'n' roll. It's enough to make clients forget they're inside a hair salon, until they glance in the mirror and see their new 'do. The reflection may reveal ombre highlights, sleek blowouts, asymmetrical cuts—or a style so classic that clients will wonder if the shop's hair dryers are some sort of time machine. The savvy staff specializes in a wide range of snipped fashions, as well as treatments such as keratin and Brazilian blowouts.
Studio A Salon helps guests fully realize their beauty with a slate of hair and spa services. In addition to new hairdos, the team can perform color and conditioning treatments to keep locks from becoming lusterless. Waxing treatments are available if you want to remove unwanted fuzz from various areas on the body or recently harvested peaches, and the studio's manicure pedicure treatments keep the nails in brilliant chromatic coverings. They also have some specialty med-spa services: Cavitation, which helps burn fat deposits in the body, and infrared sauna services, which help people sweat out toxins.
