A trained aesthetician for nearly a decade, Jamila has created her own line of products—Jamila Skincare—that she currently uses in her work at Trimz Hair Salon. Guided by the education she received from the Concorde school, she's a strong supporter of regular facial treatments coupled with daily hydration in order to keep skin smooth and looking its youngest without crayon tattoos. To this end, her products, such as mud masks, eschew sulfur in favor of earth minerals and arctic clay. Her products include brow makeup and skincare ointments, crafted from botanical ingredients.

Gilded mirrors punctuate walls the color of honey at Bella Chic Studio. It's this warm, tranquil scene that welcomes guests, who take a seat on the sofa while awaiting treatments. Once in the styling chair, mani-pedi station, or treatment room, the beautification begins: facials, waxing, and haircare gussy up visitors from follicle to stiletto.
At Salon La De Da, stylists and nail specialists treat their clients to glamorous, one-of-a-kind hair and nail services. Hairstylists straighten and smoothen strands with keratin infusions or blowouts, while at the nail bar, technicians decorate fingertips with french, classic, or Shellac manicures.
After hours, the salon transforms into an entertainment arena with live circus-style performances that include child-friendly parties. Customers can enjoy beauty packages during these live shows, but there's a hefty waitlist to see the lion manicurist. Salon La De Da's talented stylists were recently chosen to provide pinup makeup and hair services for a screening at the 2013 Garden State Film Festival.
Sharon Nesbihal, owner of Steven Jenae The Salon, and her trained stylists mold manes amid red, orange, and pale-yellow walls. As they cut hair, slather on color, and apply keratin or vegan smoothing treatments, lofted ceilings with skylights illumine the spacious interior. When they aren't sculpting new dos, they beautify façades with makeup, lash extensions, waxing, and spray tanning. Stylists put these services to work on brides as well, who require meticulous primping before the traditional hopscotch down the aisle.
Since its humble beginnings as a tanning salon, Jack Patrick Salon & Spa has expanded its menu offerings to become a full-service beauty emporium. Its team of stylists paint highlights by hand utilizing the balayage technique, or tame frizzy tresses with Coppola keratin treatments. Nail techs, meanwhile, add long-lasting shine to digits with Shellac gel.
