Founded by a Hoboken native, E'Clips Salon delivers big-city salon results with small-town affability. Cuts, coloring, conditioning, and blowouts top the menu of services, reinforced by facial-waxing treatments to subtract unwanted whiskers and natural-hair extensions to augment mustaches sprouting from the scalp. The stylists express their dedication to quality with poems written in fine products from Redken, Paul Mitchell, and Joico.
Shampoo JC Hair Salon's stylists draw inspiration from art, music and fashion. Thanks to the artful eyes of the new owners, also of Shampoo Avenue B in NYC, the beauty haven's decor would be right at home in a gallery or record shop. The walls display a rotating selection of local artwork, which might include a collection of old albums, or paintings inspired by rock 'n' roll. It's enough to make clients forget they're inside a hair salon, until they glance in the mirror and see their new 'do. The reflection may reveal ombre highlights, sleek blowouts, asymmetrical cuts—or a style so classic that clients will wonder if the shop's hair dryers are some sort of time machine. The savvy staff specializes in a wide range of snipped fashions, as well as treatments such as keratin and Brazilian blowouts.
"Are you ready to exhale?" According to management, this saying encapsulates the astonished feeling clients experience as they see their new look. The team of seasoned stylists strive to inspire this feeling by matching each clients' vision for their own hair, regardless of their hair's type, length, or texture. The salon's signature service, hair extensions, add length and volume to any style, and can be customized to each client's hair piece. Not to be outdone, the staff also excels at flattering haircuts and fashion-forward styles such as perms.
A man leans back in the barber’s chair. The hot towel covers his face, relaxing his pores before the barber coats his whiskers with warm shaving cream. At V's, the house specialty is high-quality traditional men’s grooming services, from shaves to haircuts and shoeshines.
Even though V’s master barbers perform classic services, their haircuts and shaves remain savvy to today's looks. They cut trendy hairstyles for men and use modern professional products, such as American Crew and Jack Black.
Fantasy Spa Beauty Lounge’s team beautifies clients with procedures that range from hair-smoothing keratin treatments to back facials. Staffers augment locks with colors and hair extensions, embellish digits with nail art, and revitalize faces with facials and chemical peels. In addition, makeup artists offer complimentary demos of the spa’s hypoallergenic products, teaching patrons how to select a lipstick that will not permanently bind their lips together. To maximize convenience, the spa’s stylists and technicians can conduct appointments in clients’ homes.
Inside Caprice Beauty Bar's cozy treatment room, practiced wax wielders uncover smooth skin. During each Brazilian waxing session, lavender-scented oil wax blankets the bikini area before being removed with quick swipes of cloth strips. A hard wax is then used to evict offending follicles before skin is treated to soothing azulene oils. Since hair is removed from the root, skin can stay free of follicular growth much longer than shaving or wishing.
