Whether they're primping a bride-to-be for her wedding or helping an office worker de-stress with a soothing facial, the aestheticians at Charisma Bridals & Day Spa help each client feel beautiful and relaxed. They improve skin tone and texture with facials and microdermabrasion sessions, enhance eyes with the feminine fringe of eyelash extensions, and shape brows into clean arches. The salon's airbrush makeup artists apply cosmetics using a compressed-air device, giving skin a smooth, flawless finish.
At Salon La De Da, stylists and nail specialists treat their clients to glamorous, one-of-a-kind hair and nail services. Hairstylists straighten and smoothen strands with keratin infusions or blowouts, while at the nail bar, technicians decorate fingertips with french, classic, or Shellac manicures.
After hours, the salon transforms into an entertainment arena with live circus-style performances that include child-friendly parties. Customers can enjoy beauty packages during these live shows, but there's a hefty waitlist to see the lion manicurist. Salon La De Da's talented stylists were recently chosen to provide pinup makeup and hair services for a screening at the 2013 Garden State Film Festival.
Oneblowdrybar has decreed that "full of hot air" is no longer an insult: the blow dry bar's menu only has one primary item, and it's the blowout. Of course, there's variety to be found in the treatment, which results in looks named after trendy New York spots. The Soho, for example, leaves waves loose and free, whereas the Lincoln Center incorporates pins and braids for a sophisticated updo.
At the helm of Wake Up…With MakeUp! is Barbara Strafella, a 20-year beauty-industry veteran who knows how to renew visages with treatments tailored to each individual’s skin ailments. After sleuthing around skin for impurities, the specialist begins a deep cleansing to rid pores of dirt, oil, and whac-a-moles. While skin gorges on the epidermal desserts that arrive inside the custom-formulated mask, the aesthetician’s lithe fingers dance a relaxation-inducing number across T-zones and necks. To top off the visage refurbishment, under-eyes don a potent vitamin C mask for 10 minutes in order to brighten the sensitive skin surrounding peepers and ward off optical scurvy.
