ZenzaSpa Wellness Boutique cultivates a relaxing atmosphere where patrons can cleanse their bodies and minds with a full menu of facials, massages, and skin care services. Facials and peels aim to create stunning visages, while classic massage techniques help reduce muscle kinks and knots. Alternately, the seaweed body wrap and lavender leg and foot scrub use natural ingredients to ensure bodies feel clean and smooth. Thanks to its relaxing services and atmosphere, ZenzaSpa was named Best Spa in Bergen County in 2014 by (201) Magazine.
Beau Monde Salon and Spa owner Liz Pierro is committed to pursuing the most modern hair and aesthetics treatments, which has led to the curation of a service menu that seems to include almost everything. Stylists begin each service with a shampoo and scalp massage, and can also take clients into private rooms for fittings of ready-to-wear wigs and sheitels. In spa rooms that are equally private because they have doors, therapists perform Beau Monde's signature deluxe massages, which combine two modalities into a double-length session, as well as custom body wraps with mud and pure marine extracts. The rest of the menu includes everything from manicures to ultrasonic cavitation, all of which is performed in a beautiful, like-home space furnished with hardwood floors, sheer curtains, and showers lined with spa tile.
For more than 80 years, Vincent's Rejuvenate Salon & Day Spa has watched beauty trends come and go, folding finger curls, piling beehives, primping pompadours, and layering Rachel cuts. Although the styles have changed, the one constant through the decades has been the staff's ability to make each client feel at home. From the salon floor, stylists engage in spirited banter as they pamper clients with J Beverly Hills and Goldwell color and conditioning treatments. With a thick dose of joviality, Vincent's aestheticians spend their days brightening complexions with green-tea-infused paraffin masks and Sothys vitamin C facials. During mani-pedi treatments, technicians decorate digits with Essie and OPI polishes while scribbling ”Best friendz 4 lyf” on each nail.
With whimsical wall decals, pink and white draperies, and treatment beds upholstered in shimmering satin, Stylash looks more like a doll's dream house than a stuffy salon. It's a fitting setting for the shop's aestheticians, who use hypoallergenic glue and an extra-light touch to doll up lash lines with long, individual eyelash extensions that can last up to one month. But the comfy, feminine atmosphere also serves a purpose—the more relaxed clients are, the better their eyelashes adhere. To that end, the staff recommends that clients keep talking and yodeling to a minimum during application and encourages them to bring in personal music players to help quiet their minds.
After years spent developing her personal exercise routines, Lisa Fox opened her own boutique fitness studio in 1999. There, she has forged an environment in which women of all makes and models can improve their image, specifically through Lisa’s self-created Fox Method of exercise. Fusing principles of Barre, yoga, Pilates, core conditioning, and cardio training, Lisa’s approach offers a challenging, full-body workout—and one that packs myriad potential benefits. Lisa and her fellow instructors lead classes every day of the week, with both morning and evening sessions anchoring the studio’s flexible schedule.
The checkered flags inscribed into Elite Car Salon's logo conjure up images of race cars and the elite of the automotive world. It's a fitting symbol considering that high-performance is the name of the game here as well. But things tend to move a little slower than at a stock car race, as detailers take their time to hand wash paint jobs and makeover car interiors from dashboards to back seats. The car salon's other by-appointment services run the gamut from rim repair, to dent removal, to window tinting.
