After establishing a name for herself with makeup line Adora Bella Cosmetics, Korinne Lio opened Adora Bella Salon North Jersey with her stylist husband in 2006, and the duo has been sprucing up manes and mugs ever since. Along with their close-knit team of beauty-industry professionals, the husband-and-wife team strives to maintain a cozy, family-friendly vibe, where kids can feel just as welcome as the ladies who drop in for after-hours makeover parties. The couple compare their accessibly elegant studio to a shabby, chic living room, complete with crystal chandeliers, a tin ceiling, and a satellite radio that broadcasts fun ‘80s tunes, current hits, and occasional gossip from salons stationed on the moon.
Inside the welcoming space, products by L’Oréal, Wella, and the all-organic line Use Me help tame tresses during services that range from classic cuts and corrective color to frizz-conquering keratin treatments. Beyond making clients feel good about themselves, Lio and her team strive to give back to the community through their work with the New Jersey MS chapter, which they support each year during fundraising events, cut-a-thons, and makeovers.
Before founding Dr. Park Avenue, Dr. Paul Fondacaro dedicated years of study and practice to understanding surgery and medicine. He earned his MD at NYU, served as chief resident at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, and eventually became the attending surgeon at Long Island College Hospital. After taking an interest in the booming aesthetic field, he opened the first location of Dr. Park Avenue, an office that specializes in minimally invasive aesthetic procedures and noninvasive laser services. Business grew rapidly, leading him to hire a staff of certified technicians and eventually expand to three locations.
His diverse treatment menu aims to help clients look and feel stunning. Body-contouring and weight-loss services encourage healthy and svelte figures, and chemical peels, injections, and facials battle signs of aging. The office keeps IPL technology on hand to zap unwanted body hair, erase spider veins, or highlight important details in PowerPoint lectures.
CKO Kickboxing founder Joseph Andreula's knowledge of exercise goes beyond creating effective workouts. It also helps guide the Fitness Standards Council, a nonprofit advisory panel of doctors and certified personal trainers, and provides the basis for the articles he’s published in Exercise for Men, Men's Health, and _Men's Fitness Magazine. But his true passion lies in the innovative fitness classes he created at CKO Kickboxing gyms. Since 1997, these gyms have housed Andreula’s exercise classes, which use basic kickboxing techniques to lead students toward powerful strength and greater endurance. In contrast to other kickboxing routines that have participants kick the air or invisible schoolyard bullies, students in CKO Kickboxing sessions strike hanging heavy bags to help them tone more muscle and burn up to 1,200 calories in a single class.
A member of the Association of Bodywork and Massage Professionals, Janelle King draws on both eastern and western approaches to massage when alleviating her clients of pain. She specializes in hot stone, reflexology, and myofascial release, along with prenatal and postnatal massage. When she isn't soothing moms-to-be, she studies for her doula certification so she can support women during the birthing process. In keeping with her passion for both traditional and holistic treatments, Janelle volunteers her services at charity events to help raise funds and awareness for diseases such as breast cancer and multiple sclerosis.
