Barber Shop in Livingston

An armory of products by Mitch, Paul Mitchell's selection for men, brings order to scraggly heads, which peer hopefully at The ManCave's poker table and flat-screen television. Gents twirl in padded styling chairs, listening to the shouts of excitement that drift beneath sports memorabilia and a tyrannosaurus rex bust. Neon beer signs cast their colorful warmth across the ebony-hued leather of long couches, and a puck ricochets sharply off the rim of an air-hockey table, allowing patrons to showcase athletic skills far from the suit-ruining fur of shedding mascots.

Trained in cutting and sculpting male and female manes alike, 8 to 8 Barber Shop’s stylists provide modern salon services in an atmosphere that evokes an old-fashioned barbershop. Wielding clippers, razors, scissors, and products by Paul Mitchell, they expertly execute everything from boy's hair lining to ladies' dimensional highlights and perms. Classic hot-towel razor shaves leave gents' mugs feeling soft and refreshed, while an in-house manicurist prettifies fingernails by pulling up to file, shape, and paint tips during the haircut.

In addition to coiffing hair and pampering facades, the team also relaxes tense muscles with five types of massage. Swedish massages gently knead soft tissue with circular, medium-pressure strokes; deep-tissue massages, on the other hand, deliver firm, cross-grain pressures to alleviate even the achiest of knots. Upon request, the team augments any massage with botanical essential oils extracted directly from plants and Swamp Thing’s tear ducts.

Beyond enjoying classic coddling services, clients with 8 to 8 membership cards can use them to score discounts at other local businesses such as V-Jeweled Designs and Glen Weber Drum Shop, as well as admittance to the secret amusement park hidden beneath the shampoo station.

Sofia Perez has always had a passion for hairstyling and beauty treatments. Her mentor, accomplished hairstylist Gilbert Febles, taught her how to both design hair and push herself beyond perceived limits. After years of experience in running a high-volume beauty salon, Perez created the first Sofi's Color Lounge in Cranford in 1997. Here, she gathered together a team of former coworkers and skilled professionals, and the venture was successful enough to spin off a second location in Summit in 2008.

Today, Perez's adept staff perform their signature color treatments and diverse hair services using hand-picked, innovative products from makers like Goldwell, KMS California, and GK Hair. Both locations have a sleek, modern feel: the Summit site has metallic blue and silver walls, and the Cranford salon also welcomes guests with a metallic color scheme.
