The aestheticians at Chen Skin Care and Spa fight blemishes and signs of aging with skincare services backed by products from brands such as Dermalogica, and PCA Skin. Chen's signature facial follows a brief skin analysis and freckle Rorschach test with an organic mask that supplements the results of an exfoliation, extraction, and detoxifying massage. Anti-inflammatory gel and an oatmeal mask sing hymns of hydration to delicate epidermises during the sensitive-skin facial, and male clients neutralize razor burn with the deep pore cleansing of the gentlemen's facial. A full-body aromatherapy massage combines natural herb and flower scents with head-to-toe strokes in order to rebalance the body and mind more effectively than log rolling on an abacus does.
Warmly stained hardwood blankets the floor at Chen Skin Care and Spa, where neutral-toned walls shut out such noisy outside distractions as ringing cell phones and road rage delivered by Morse code. Whimsical sets of bubble-shaped mirrors reflect the graceful shapes of vases sprouting tall grasses and branches.
The aestheticians at I Love Lash understand the difference between fake lashes and extensions. That's why they've devoted their chic, boutique studio to extensions, and extensions only. That's because extensions look natural, move naturally, and don't attack innocent passerby like Venus flytraps. They also last up to six weeks. To achieve a completely natural look, aestheticians have clients lay back on comfortable tables under the light of crystal chandeliers. One-by-one, they apply customized lashes to real lashes with a special adhesive that creates a waterproof bond. A meticulously precise treatment, it takes about two hours. During that time they also tailor lashes to length, curl, and color. Lashes will fall out periodically with the natural lashes, so the technicians recommend touch-ups every two to three weeks.
PB Nail & Spa is a little obsessive about cleanliness. The health of their clients is priority number one, so they use only disposable or sterilized tools and all organic products. But these high conceptual standards don't get in the way of services that straight-up pamper: whether it's an organic spa mani-pedi in a cushy leather massage chair or a daringly precise Brazilian bikini wax. Come in for a muscle-calming Swedish massage, or have a full set of eyelash extensions meticulously applied by a licensed beauty professional. The friendly ambiance and clean white decor of PB Nail & Spa make it soothing place to unwind or recuperate from a date with an excitable auctioneer.
The manicures at Young's Nail begin with relaxing techniques that culminate with traditional or gel polishes. The color-gel variety allows nails' natural color to show through the tints, and UV gel polishes cure in seconds under a special lamp. Both types of polishes eschew harsh chemicals and odors. While clients lounge in cushy, red massage chairs, feet prepare for their polish by soaking in warm water. Techs also lengthen lashes with extensions and relieve the body of wanted hair with waxing services.
ZenzaSpa Wellness Boutique cultivates a relaxing atmosphere where patrons can cleanse their bodies and minds with a full menu of facials, massages, and skin care services. Facials and peels aim to create stunning visages, while classic massage techniques help reduce muscle kinks and knots. Alternately, the seaweed body wrap and lavender leg and foot scrub use natural ingredients to ensure bodies feel clean and smooth. Thanks to its relaxing services and atmosphere, ZenzaSpa was named Best Spa in Bergen County in 2014 by (201) Magazine.
Beach Bum Tanning's high-tech beds, sunless booths, and tailored beauty treatments regularly appear in press outlets such as Allure magazine. The salon's heated Mystic HD booths spritz bodies with vibrant pigment while warming skin to ensure optimal and even color saturation without having to bear-hug King Midas. Certified Airbrush Artists also implement customized airbrush tans over 150 ways by using a combination of fine-point-guided and wide-point-guided guns to shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to the body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
