Carousel Salon may have moved locations since it was established more than 50 years ago, but it still retains its commitment to providing classic beauty treatments in an inviting, unpretentious setting. The salon's stylists are well versed in creating new hairdos through cuts, coloring, and texturizing treatments, and each member of the team specializes in a unique area of expertise, ensuring that virtually any look can be achieved. Beyond styling, the salon also offers waxing treatments, and nail technicians perform indulgent mani-pedis that include soothing paraffin dips.
As an Aveda concept salon and spa, Belliard's Hair Design Studio and Spa naturally augments its services with the wholesome, herbal products Aveda has become known for. Pairing these with a hodgepodge of techniques, the aestheticians pamper complexions during facials and body treatments, including steam baths fueled by minerals, sea salts, and fuming rubber ducks. Stationed across the spa's hardwood floors, hairstylists shape manes into fashionable 'dos, massage therapists dish out a repertoire of kneads, and nail technicians accent fingertips with OPI Gelcolor. A warm fireplace collaborates with subdued lighting to soothe clients sitting in sleek styling chairs.
A combination of technical prowess and creativity steady the shears and blow through the hairdryers at Bernard's Salon and Spa, a beauty center that aims to have its clients feeling like they just stepped off the cover of Vogue. Not all the staffs' attention is focused on the scalp, however—aestheticians deftly apply cosmetics before nights-on-the-town, perform rejuvenating facials, remove unwanted fuzz with wax, and shape cuticles during mani-pedis. Massage therapists, meanwhile, use swedish and deep tissue techniques to ease tension from the body, making clients appear more relaxed, approachable, and less likely to pop a neck vein.
The professional waxers at Spice Salon upend unwanted hair with warm wax and a soft cloth during treatments administered at the chic, full-service salon. Mustaches borrowed from cartoon villains slink away in defeat alongside their chin and eyebrow counterparts. Full face waxing frees entire façades from unwanted hair or years of overgrown ivy, and customers who opt for the Brazilian can saunter beachside confidently.
When stylist Darren McHugh met Amy at a salon in the United Kingdom, the two quickly discovered they had a lot in common. They had both spent a year mastering techniques at the TONI&GUY International Academy, had a passion for hairstyling and fashion, and harbored ambitions to start salons of their own. Their kinship continued over the next few years, as the duo dressed models’ hair for prestigious shows at New York Fashion Week and managed a salon in Gloucester. Today, the seasoned stylists have achieved their ownership dreams, bringing their years of rigorous training and high-end experience to a salon of their very own design—Essensuals London.
Nestled amidst the upscale shops of the Cherry Hill Mall, Essensuals London occupies a chic studio space with sleek black styling chairs and a bright collage of fashion photography sweeping across the back wall. That sophisticated aura extends to appointments as well, as highly trained specialists transform hair with stylish cuts, gleaming color, or smoothing keratin treatments. They can also arrange hair into elegant up-dos, ideal for special events such as a formal dance or informal black-tie gala.
