Ming Hair & Nail Spa offers so many beautifying treatments, it needed two locations just to handle them all. Both shops offer a full range of hair styling services, each of which begins with a complimentary consultation.

Cutting, coloring, and styling all fall within the staff's expertise, as do advanced treatments such as keratin straightening.
Meanwhile, at Ming's East Brunswick location?dubbed "shop no. 1"?aestheticians attend to skin with treatments ranging from European deep-cleansing facials to LED photo-rejuvenation. Those looking to pamper their hands and feet, on the other hand, can head to shop no. 2 in Green Brook, where spa manicures and pedicures can incorporate soothing extras such as hydrating masks, sugar scrubs, and detoxifying green tea soaks.
