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.
Plush leather seating, wrought-iron chandeliers, and a brick-set fireplace combine to make Emanuel’s Salon an elegant oasis for pampering hair and spa services. Whether preparing revelers for their prom, wedding, or a fancy search party, the makeover mavens pull off a fully polished look with mani-pedis and make-up applications. The staff also combats baldness in both men and women with high-tech laser hair therapy.

Leyla Azizova, the licensed massage therapist at Health in Hands Spa, specialized in trigger-point therapy while in massage-therapy school in Moscow, Russia. Her goal is to help clients overcome their pain, and trigger-point therapy offers a thoroughly researched and successful means of doing so. Leyla has even been tapped by the CEO of the Hess Oil and Chemical Corporation as his private massage therapist. She's also mastered sports massage, prenatal massage, and multiple other forms. At Health in Hands Spa, she uses the modalities necessary to treat her clients' specific discomforts. Although trigger-point therapy is her marquee service, as it treats a variety of ailments ranging from muscle soreness to fibromyalgia, other techniques are available. They include Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massages, as well as sports massages, which are helpful for athletes prepping for a big game or recovering from an intense bout with a gym-bag zipper.
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.
The mind and the body receive equal attention at Hoboken Wellness Spa. The staff seeks to create a holistic community that will educate patrons on the health benefits of ayurveda, an alternative medicine philosophy that originated in ancient India. Aiming to emulate the word ayurveda itself—which means "knowledge for long life"—it focuses on each individual's body type to yield the best results. People with a pitta body type might need treatments such as a cooling cucumber and peppermint footbath followed by a medicated-oil massage. Staffers might recommend a warm ginger footbath for those with the kapha body type, along with an herbal tea eye treatment that enhances that ability to read Earl Grey leaves. The team also offers waxing and threading services to leave skin smooth.
