After spending 15 years working in the wedding industry, beautifying brides-to-be with personalized makeup and henna tattoos, Pritee Gupta and Leena Dedhia realized their dream: to make their treatments available to a broader client base. So they created Mei Salon, where guests can experience their signature eyebrow threading services while listening to calming music. Their skilled staff crafts dazzling highlights and updos and banishes stress with relaxing hot-oil massages and Ayurvedic facials steeped in ancient traditions. The salon also hosts spa parties for kids and adults, which are ideal for celebrating birthdays, girls' nights out, or a decision not to pursue the Guinness World Record for longest toenails.
Many of Hair & Nail Excellence's clients have been loyal customers for years. But it's not the exposed brick walls and elegant wooden paneling they're coming back for; those are fairly new. It's the attentive pampering the staff pours on every person who walks through the door. With head-to-toe beauty services, licensed stylists and cosmetologists breathe new life into dull hairdos and nails, prepping guests for special occasions or merely devising whole new everyday looks. They factor in professional products such as Moroccan Oil, Matrix, and OPI during their signature hair and nail services and offer Fake Bake tans to get skin glowing and ward off the attention of amorous snowmen.
If you're in the market for a new look, look no further than Marijosie Unisex Salon. The salon's stylists and aestheticians team up to complement their clients' natural beauty with a full range of haircuts, manicures, and waxing services. The stylists are particularly adept at matching the right style to each client's face, regardless of whether that client has been blessed with curls, straight locks, or a head infested with snakes. The aestheticians turn their attention to the body itself, beautifying skin with makeup applications, eyelash treatments, and bikini waxes.
David Alan wasn’t always a hairstylist. In fact, his original career path began at CCNY Film School. But David's eye for design and love of hair quickly sent him packing for beauty school and, later, to train under hair greats Mark Traynor--L’Oreal Paris colorist and stylist--and hat designer Lilly Daché. Now, more than 40 years later, David joins their ranks as owner of his namesake salon and spa where he instills his philosophy that hair should be unteased, untortured, unsprayed, and natural-looking.
But this doesn’t mean David and his legion of stylists aren’t capable of transforming hair with the latest trends and designs. Using Redken, Pureology, and KMS California hair care products, six levels of stylist highlight, condition, and straighten locks to complement any hair type and texture. And in the spa area, technicians rejuvenate bodies with mani-pedis, Eminence facials, and seaweed body wraps.
Along with a roster of beautifying services, guests are also treated to the Paramus shop’s décor as David Alan made sure to make his oyster-shaped salon aesthetically pleasing. Stained Brazil red oak floors and white walls enclose guests between mirrors made from nickel and less than 5% iron, which ensures reflections don't suffer from green glares or poor Tony Stark impressions.
The stylists at Salon Nouveau 2 LLC aren’t newbies to the hair industry; many have more than 10 years of experience, including sharpening their shears at continuing-education courses hosted by Paul Mitchell, Redken, and Aveda. But as seasoned as the hairdressers are, they are also humble.
The stylists at this Aveda-focus shop always take ample time to consult with their clients. This includes examining skin tone and face shape as well as discussing beauty preferences and lifestyle habits to land on the ideal style. They then get to work trimming split ends, coloring strands with dye, and taming rebellious frizz with a Coppola Keratin Complex treatment and a very, very stern look.
Mavida Salon encourages its staff to collaborate artistically with each client to create looks that are both modern and manageable. Its talented stylists, colorists, and makeup artists perform each service at full-length mirrors, allowing them to consider the complete picture while keeping an eye out for pirates. Aside from custom cuts, the intimate, burgundy-walled salon specializes in single- and double-process color and extensions as well as La-Brasiliana hair-smoothing keratin treatments, which counteract frizz for up to four months.
