The stylists at Shear Genius Hair Salon specialize in custom cuts, which run the gamut from layered looks and angled bobs to basic trims. The team also brightens locks with Famesi color, applying it all over, or concentrating it at strands' ends for highlights or an ombre effect. With keratin treatments, the team also straightens out curls, leaving a subtle curve behind or creating a totally straight style that, with well-placed Sharpie marks, doubles as a ruler.
When Michelle Parkes opened Core Salon & Spa, she didn't want just another cookie-cutter business. After spending two years as a national educator for Paul Brown Hawaii and 25 years working for other owners, she decided she wanted to do a salon her way. Her way was to surround herself with an unparalleled group of stylists, support staff, and a moat to guard against invading paparazzi. The end result was Core Salon & Spa, a beauty center manned by skilled stylists that use quality products from brands such as Yon-Ka, L'Oreal Professionnel, and Kevin Murphy.
The aestheticians and massage therapists at Paradise Total Spa & Nails pamper clients with beauty treatments and relaxing spa services. Nail technicians augment manicures and pedicures with soothing hot stones or smooth away cellulite with galvanic technology. Eyelash perming and eyelash extensions add drama to faces, and accentuates the beauty of eyes. Waxing services remove unwanted hair, and six facial treatments plus microdermabrasion resurfacing revive faces. Experienced massage therapists knead away aches and pains, and the staff puts together party packages and prepares party rooms and children’s venues.
Beach Bum Tanning's board-certified consultants speak with each client beforehand to determine the best tanning method for his or her golden-hued goals, allowing bronzed butterflies to emerge from their cocoons with a natural glow free of overexposure. The salon's Star Trekkian tanning beds come with features such as climate control, cool misting sprays, aromatic fragrances, and MP3 player inputs, and some beds are even open to the air to cut down on claustrophobia. As an alternative to tanning beds, the time-crunched can undergo an airbrush tanning session that suns skin without exposure to unforgiving UV rays or harsh Friar's Club roasts. Using a combination of fine-point- and wide-point-guided guns, Beach Bum's certified airbrush artists will shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to your body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
Salon Deja Vu cultivates an environment that’s reminiscent of a family home, right down to the complimentary cups of coffee and friendly conversations about today’s going allowance rates. When they aren’t refreshing appearances with mani-pedis, waxings, or haircuts, the staffers at Salon Deja Vu focus their attention on several charitable efforts, including the Natural Fiber Oil Spill Booms program, a foundation devoted to keeping waterways clean. The salon's efforts have recently earned them the Daily Record's 2012 Morris County Reader's Choice Award for Best of the Best Hair Salon.
As kids caper about in a world of rides, games, and playground equipment at Giggles Play Station, their parents can rest assured knowing that the amusement emporium was built from the ground up to safely accommodate them in areas divided by age group. Among the indoor playground's attractions, toddlers enjoy exclusive access to their own padded play area, complete with a playhouse and kid-size construction vehicles. In the play station that's governed by specially trained safety staff, kids aged 1?8 clamber up padded ramps, careen down six slides, and plunge into the ball pit, which is sanitized regularly to keep bacteria and the purple cooties at bay. The arcade houses numerous ticket-earning diversions, including skee ball and basketball shooting, and siblings can settle rivalries while competing in games of air-hockey or on the twisty lanes of slot-car racing.
Giggle Play Station caters to adults as well, welcoming them to put their feet up when not cheering for their kids as they conquer slides or tour the facilities on the train ride. In addition to a menu of snacks, the caf? offers a vantage point for parents to keep an eye on their brood while building sculptures out of their mozzarella sticks.
The staffers at Sizzle Tans make it their mission to guide customers through each location’s selection of beds, sunless-tanning options, and teeth-whitening treatments. Their collection of beds is broken into three different intensity levels and includes Ergoline's Open Sun 1050 and the temperature-controlled Prestige 1100. For customers who don't want to expose themselves to UV rays, Sizzle Tans has two sunless solutions: a trained technician can carefully airbrush bodies by hand, or clients can step into a VersaSpa booth equipped with nozzles that automatically coat skin evenly in tanning solution.
