The staff at D'Nicole Salon and Spa has cultivated a relaxing haven dedicated to hair, skin, and nailcare that earned the studio recognition as one of Courier Posts' Best Day Spas. Featuring products from Redken, Moroccanoil, and American Crew, stylists whip up fashionable hairdos and add brushstrokes of color, while aestheticians draw youthful glows from cheeks with cleansers and exfoliants. Tanning technicians use airbrush equipment to grace the body with a sun-kissed glow that won't lead to a nasty divorce with the moon, though any stressful misunderstandings can be easily swept away under the gliding strokes of a Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone massage.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Tangerine offers a full gamut of aesthetic services for nails and skin, along with stress-eviscerating facials and massages. Facial options include a 60-minute signature tangerine facial customized for the divergent visages of men and women ($75) and a hyperexfoliating microdermabrasion treatment ($95 for a single session). Reward your digits for their success in the all-limbs foosball tournament with a spa manicure ($28), pedicure ($53), or other nail treatment. In addition to haircuts and coloring, Tangerine offers several rejuvenating hair treatments like the caviar anti-aging hair masque, a 15-minute process designed to revitalize damaged hair until its radiance can be used to signal low-flying aircraft ($25).
Talented hairstylists Danni, Renee, and Naeemah run the show at South Jersey House of Beauty, where they reinvent their customers’ looks with chic haircuts and color treatments. After discussing style goals with the client, the trio will get work, either snipping off split ends or revamping hues with full color treatments or luminous highlights. They skip the scissors all together while applying extensions, straightening hair with relaxers, or creating simple press and styles.
After settling into Paragon's chic animal-print chairs and admiring the stylish art sprinkled on its bright, welcoming walls, your luxurious spa treatments will begin with a thorough skin analysis by a certified aesthetician. Next, they'll introduce your flesh-app Facebook to the deep-pore-cleansing facial, which reduces oil without drying and moisturizes the skin to treat spontaneous flare-ups. Newly pampered skin will take a final curtain call once the detoxifying mask removes impurities and a decisive antioxidant is applied for ultimate radiance. Batting clean-up is the microdermabrasion treatment, which uses the DiamondTome system of skin regeneration to exfoliate and smooth the skin, eliminating dead skin cells and any Deadhead cells that have lingered there since the ’60s.
