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.
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.
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.
Rebellations is an ARROJO Ambassador hair salon that features full-service hair-cutting, hair-coloring, straightening, conditioning treatments and extensions. Other services include facials, cleansing masks and makeup applications. Bridal & Special Occasion packages available.
At Eva Salon, skilled stylists draw on decades of industry experience that include work in fashion shows and training by the likes of Pravana, Toni&Guy, Paul Mitchell, and Wella. Wielding the full line of Davines products, the talented hair artists transform manes with precision dos, bright new hues, and extensions by Remy Hair, and also design special-occasion styles for weddings and other photo-appropriate occasions. Renowned for the in-depth consultations they provide each new client, the team keeps on top of the latest techniques with continuing-education courses, enabling their scissors to shear locks into modern pixie cuts as well as the time-tested classics like the Yul Brynner. Eva Salon's aestheticians take over where its stylists leave off, waxing away leg hair and mustaches or sculpting brows into elegant arches. Skincare experts pamper visages with organic facials and use microcurrent treatments to fight the passage of time by mitigating signs of aging, such as wrinkles or layers of dust.
Sparkle Salon’s steady-handed technicians clear unwanted hairs from delicate body areas with thorough waxing treatments. After clients retire to a secluded area, a salon staffer discusses hair-removal options, addresses customer concerns, and hypothesizes about whether Mona Lisa was smirking because she heard a joke or had a hamster crawling beneath her cloak. Next, the stubble savant meticulously applies wax to loitering strands and paper strips, and with a quick twist of the wrist removes pesky pelts residing in bikini zones and beyond. Brazilian waxing saves skin surfaces from the irritation of razor burn, the lengthy process of tweezing, and the ineffective gesture of politely asking hair to leave. Waxed surfaces can remain smooth and fuzz-free for up to six weeks.
