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. Despite the company's speedy growth and array of services, the doctor maintains a high level of contact with patients, even consulting with them before laser hair-removal procedures.
Vincent Vanzandt has done his fair share of traveling. His formal training at the Sassoon Academy first whisked him away to California and then took him across the sea to London. He soon found himself in New York as a Farouk Systems educator before opening his own salon outside the city. There, he works with other internationally trained stylists to create beautiful new looks with their haircare services. While waiting for their appointments to begin, clients sit in the salon's comfortable waiting area where they can read magazines, sit in plush, cushioned chairs, admire large green plants, or mold shredded magazines into the style of hair they want.

Paul and the Mane on Madison team all share the same mantra: “you don’t have to cross the bridge any longer to get the latest in trendy, stylish hair and makeup design.” From their fashionable outpost in Wyckoff, NJ, the team delivers on that promise, crafting Manhattan-quality hair care for men and women. They beautify locks with everything from highlighting and Keratin to glam up-dos appropriate for special events.
Models with chic coiffures gaze out from the walls of Salon Salon City, captured in black-and-white photos that can help to inspire clients to try new styles. Luckily, the salon’s team of professional stylists stands ready to aid in this pursuit, with extensive training tucked into their tool belts beside the shears, clippers, and curling irons.
