Solares offers a bevy of tanning, waxing, and threading services to under-toned and over-follicled clients. Earlier technologically inferior societies valued powdery paleness and wish-granting leeches. However, it is no secret that a smooth tan waiting to show itself off beneath an autumn coat is the modern mark of refinement. Radiate such refinement when you slip into a Sundash 252 or an Advantage 350 tanning bed for one ($10.50), five ($45.50), or 10 tanning sessions ($77), or opt for an upgraded freckle-farming tansperience in an Avantgarde 600 or The Lounge ($18.90 for one session, $80.50 for five, $126 for 10). Clients can achieve UV-free photoskinthesis in under a minute with a Mystic Tan ($17.50 for one session). If tanning needs have been met thanks to high-fives from the sun, opt instead for your choice of only waxing services—Solares offers full Brazilians ($48.50), partial bikini waxes ($27), and other defurring treatments necessary for achieving optimal ocean-side aerodynamics.
At Eva Salon, skilled stylists draw on decades of industry experience that include work in fashion shows and training by the likes of Pravana, Toni&Guy, Paul Mitchell, and Wella. Wielding the full line of Davines products, the talented hair artists transform manes with precision dos, bright new hues, and extensions by Remy Hair, and also design special-occasion styles for weddings and other photo-appropriate occasions. Renowned for the in-depth consultations they provide each new client, the team keeps on top of the latest techniques with continuing-education courses, enabling their scissors to shear locks into modern pixie cuts as well as the time-tested classics like the Yul Brynner.
Eva Salon's aestheticians take over where its stylists leave off, waxing away leg hair and mustaches or sculpting brows into elegant arches. Skincare experts pamper visages with organic facials and use microcurrent treatments to fight the passage of time by mitigating signs of aging, such as wrinkles or layers of dust.
The staff at DreamZ Beauty Salon combine their collective talents to enhance each client?s natural beauty from the top down. After sculpting fashionable haircuts, stylists reinvent strands? natural shade or texture with stunning color treatments and an all-vegan keratin smoothing formula by Zerran. Aestheticians draw from all-organic products and 24 carat gold flakes to render complexions soft and blemish free, and use hard wax to remove body hair and leave bodies with skin that?s baby soft. The salon also balances its makeovers with spirit-reviving massages, treating full bodies to Swedish or aromatherapy-enhanced services, or with prenatal massages that help expecting mothers silence constant worries about college tuition costs or how much to tip the tooth fairy.
With a team of experienced stylists, colorists, and designers, Savvy Hair Studio specializes in giving its clients the look they're longing for. Put your head threads in the hands of the salon's scissor-wielding artisans for a haircut ($55+ for women, $35+ for men), and they'll lop off argumentative, gossipy, or otherwise unsatisfactory strands to leave you with an obedient and perfectly styled coiffure. Clients can drive the moon wild with jealousy by giving their locks a sun-kissed look ($75+), tweaking their tone with a color correction ($100+), or emulating ceramic-haired movie stars with a clear or color glaze ($45+ and $65+, respectively). Unruly tresses can also be startled into submission by an expert blow-dry ($40+).

Hoboken Women's Wellness
Hoboken Women's Wellness founder Mollie Bollers decided to devote her massage-therapy skills to caring for pregnant women, new mothers, and infants after the birth of her own daughter in 2004. Each massage therapist on her team has completed a minimum of 750 hours training each, in modalities such as Swedish massage and shiatsu, as well as 70 additional hours of pregnancy and baby-centric continuing education. Inside the soft lavender walls of the wellness center, therapists work with women in all stages pre- and post-pregnancy, working to help relieve discomfort, muscle cramping, and bad dreams about accidentally swallowing a beach ball. Mollie also strives to give back by offering massage to women at clinics in low-income communities and to the nurses at the Hoboken University Medical Center's labor-and-delivery unit.
