Brush Salon is a study in contrast. Mirrors hang from brick walls and metal fixtures hang like street lamps to give the interior a rustic, welcoming air, but each station is lined with advanced products and staffed by a stylist continually trained to stay abreast of hair trends. This duality matches the salon’s approach to hair services, which combines cutting-edge beauty techniques with an attention to each customer’s comfort and goals. Clients are encouraged to bring pictures or magazine clippings to the salon, allowing stylists to duplicate their favorite celebrity looks or articulate what went wrong with their favorite celebrity marriages. If customers are not pleased with their haircut, color, or retexturing services, they can return within a week and stylists will fix the looks at no charge.
Gilded mirrors punctuate walls the color of honey at Bella Chic Studio. It's this warm, tranquil scene that welcomes guests, who take a seat on the sofa while awaiting treatments. Once in the styling chair, mani-pedi station, or treatment room, the beautification begins: facials, waxing, and haircare gussy up visitors from follicle to stiletto.
Soon to be the subjects of a reality show airing on HDNet, this casual salon’s bikini-clad staff of licensed stylists charms the curls of men, women, and children within warm, beach-themed surroundings. Locks relinquish sand, seashells, and stowaway sea monkeys during a thorough sudsing that preludes the 20-minute haircut, which is tailored to each client’s desires and personal style. As fingers lull pent-up tension from weary noggins, peepers can peruse the colorful interior’s vivid artwork and wall-mounted surfboards, which reflect flickers from the lobby’s sprawling flat-screen TV.
With their LightSheer diode laser and Palomar IPL system, the specialists at The Medispa at Shrewsbury can fix almost any skin issue clients throw their way. The devices release focused bursts of energy that, when adjusted to suit the client’s skin type, can zap away unwanted hairs, erase tattoos, or lighten blemishes such as leg veins and acne scars. Meanwhile, Dr. Steven Davis—a board-certified plastic surgeon who was featured on The Doctors—works with his staff to combat wrinkles and fine lines with injectables such as Botox and Restylane. To help clients navigate the spa’s service menu and complex system of lava streams, complimentary consultations divulge facts about potential treatment options to ensure informed decision making.
After a sterling two-decade career as a board-certified internist and gastroenterologist, Dr. Ramon Suatengco needed a fresh way to make a difference in the lives of his patients. After realizing the power inherent in blending his medical expertise with an artist's eye for detail, he founded The Radiance, A Medical Spa, where he and his team blend clinical education with modern technology to accomplish revitalizing beauty treatments. The Lipo-Ex, a highlight of their repertoire, can help clients lose up to three sizes after eight weeks of treatment. It’s a non-invasive procedure using radio frequency energy to break down fatty tissue beneath the skin, which then leaves the body via the lymphatic system’s natural processes, leaving behind slimmer physiques that help patients take the first step toward healthier lifestyles. This dedication to life-changing therapies is just par for the course for Dr. Suatengco; when he's not busy treating patients or staying involved with the New Jersey Medical Society, he can often be found giving back to the community through numerous philanthropies and serving as the president and chairman of the Filipino-American Community Development Center.
The technicians at Inteliderm help their clients maintain youthful complexions and fuzz-free birthday suits with an arsenal of laser and light-based treatments.
