The term "wedding hair" may conjure images of updos, but that's not all it can mean. Under the care of the Up Do's and Eye Do's team, it can be whatever you want, from half-up, half-down styles to a chic blowout or ringlets for a flower girl. Audrey, the team's lead hair stylist, crafts a diverse array of just such wedding-appropriate hairdos. While she tends to locks, her business partner Cindy—a makeup artist and licensed medical aesthetician—subtly enhances the wedding party's features with products from MAC, Bobbi Brown, and Smashbox.
While the duo's main focus is on weddings, they also style clients for other special occasions and introduce kids to the joys of the spa experience. At their children's birthday parties, little ones get their hair and makeup done and even get to wear clip-in hair extensions, a more practical and temporary hair-extending alternative to wearing hats full of Miracle-Gro.
The team at Bella Organici LLC takes organic culture seriously. That's why every one of their products is 100% organic, no small feat at a tanning salon. In fact, none of their products have even been animal tested, either. Their work helps clients circumvent the inconvenience of tanning beds and outdoor sunbathing to achieve a nice bronze. The salon's tanning sprays react with the skin’s chemistry to create natural-looking color that lasts for up to two weeks. To boot, their at-home tanning events transform solitary beauty work into a party, prepping a group of friends for a day at the beach and helping the homeowner become invisible in front of their bronze walls. Bella Organici's other services also work to beautify skin, with facials, exfoliating scrubs, and waxing.
You might think that standing up while you tan would cause an unnaturally darkened scalp, but this never happens at Hollywood Tans. That's because their arsenal of signature stand-up tanning booths create an always even, natural-looking glow in as little as seven minutes. With more than 140 locations nationwide, the chain’s salons—each a veritable bronze mine for pale bodies—can also bronze physiques Mystic Tan’s Instant Tan, a sunless formula that does not contain UV-rays or infectious California boy-band harmonies. Voted "Favorite Tanning Salon in North Jersey" by an independent readers' poll in Suburban Trends magazine, Hollywood Tans of Riverdale can also help customers choose the Instant Tan formula best suited to them, matching the bronzing serums to the each person's skin tone, type, and ideal look.
Panico Salon & Spa was named the best salon in New Jersey by Beauty Entertainment magazine, but the award-winning team's services go well beyond hairstyling. Massage services include Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone modalities, and other treatments include fruit-scented body scrubs and a wide range of healing facials and skincare. The salon prides itself in being an education based teaching salon. It provides continuous education to its staff via a variety of resources such as an intern training academy as well as an educator development program.
The team of friendly hair stylists at Danielle's Place knows a thing or two about giving. First and foremost, they give every ounce of effort as they impart hair with vivid highlights, modern style, and shine as noticeable as frost in the desert. When they renovated the salon interior, they gave their workspace an upscale and modern feel that matched the contemporary treatments on their service menu. Hardwood floors underline a d?cor with elegant rugs, gold light-radiating ceiling fans and sconces, and bright purple walls inside treatment rooms.
For Danielle's staff, the act of giving extends beyond the salon. They strive to give back to the community that supports their business by hosting various charitable events and fundraisers, including a haircut-a-thon for breast cancer.
There are three bars in Bars of Beauty?a blowout bar, a facial bar, and a makeup bar here. Each one promises a stunning new look in 45 minutes or fewer, whether clients are getting one of four signature hairstyles, an express facial that deep-cleanses and balances, or airbrush makeup applications. For a more in-depth facial treatment, they can opt for a chemical peel or microdermabrasion. Bars of Beauty also hosts private events, ideal for birthdays, bachelorette parties, or just a girls' night out, complete with champagne and treatments tailored to the revelers' beauty desires.
