Guided by the expertise of Dr. Keith Gurland, the chief of ophthalmology at Bayonne Medical Center, the optical experts at Specs Unlimited have been calibrating prescriptions and outfitting eyes with name-brand frames for more than a quarter century. The full-service eye-care center flatters faces with designs from Prada, Gucci, and Ralph Lauren while also sharpening eyesight to read street signs or the fine print on tattoos. The professionals also fit contact lenses for patients hoping to walk through the world with ears and noses unshackled by spectacles.
For more than 25 years, makeup artist and former actress Nan Whitehead has enhanced eyes, lips, cheeks, and complexions, whether working as a skincare consultant for companies including AT&T and Bristol Meyers or preparing herself for a role in the Frank Sinatra film The First Deadly Sin. As the head of her Nuance by Nan Cosmetics, she begins each appointment by evaluating the client's skin type, facial features, and preferences. Then, with precise brushstrokes and her own line of cosmetics, she readies women for special events such as graduations and weddings. Her aesthetic guidance has been sought out by various Professional Women's Clubs across the country.
A line of salon chairs—each facing an ornately framed mirror—hosts clients as stylists snip their hair into modern and timeless cuts. This experienced team also transforms stale looks with shimmering highlights and smoothing keratin treatments. In another area of the day spa, spray-tan technicians coat bodies with a UV-free formula that dries without leaving unsightly streaks or argyle patterns.
Led by stylist Sherif, the staff of World Beauty Center combines technical know-how with taste and creativity to craft flattering, stylish cuts. Sherif and his team stay abreast of seasonal trends to create up-to-the-moment color treatments and looks modeled after whatever new 'do the local weatherman just adopted. In addition to hair services, World Beauty Center also performs mani-pedis and makeup sessions.
The stylists at Miracle Beauty Salon refine men’s manes with fashionable haircuts and turn the clock back on late-afternoon shadows with skin-hugging shaves. After treating hair to a sudsy shampoo, stylists consult with each client to select a coiffure that best suits his unique bone structure and ball-cap hatband. Split ends and wayward tendrils then fall to the floor as shears, razors, and other professional tools sculpt harmonious hairdos. The salon’s nimble-fingered technicians also tend to facial hair, sheathing jawlines in soothing foam and drawing sharp razors across whisker thickets. Each shave skims exceptionally close to the skin to keep visages soft, smooth, and free of nesting finches.
Studio A Salon helps guests fully realize their beauty with a slate of hair and spa services. In addition to new hairdos, the team can perform color and conditioning treatments to keep locks from becoming lusterless. Waxing treatments are available if you want to remove unwanted fuzz from various areas on the body or recently harvested peaches, and the studio's manicure pedicure treatments keep the nails in brilliant chromatic coverings. They also have some specialty med-spa services: Cavitation, which helps burn fat deposits in the body, and infrared sauna services, which help people sweat out toxins.
