Beach Bum Tanning's high-tech beds, sunless booths, and tailored beauty treatments regularly appear in press outlets such as Allure magazine. The salon's heated Mystic HD booths spritz bodies with vibrant pigment while warming skin to ensure optimal and even color saturation without having to bear-hug King Midas. Certified Airbrush Artists also implement customized airbrush tans over 150 ways by using a combination of fine-point-guided and wide-point-guided guns to shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to the body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
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.
Before opening Believe Skin Care Studio, owner Lauryn Allen spent two years at the John Barrett Salon at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. She learned much while tending to her base of big-city clients, and she brings all of that knowledge—as well as 13 years of general spa experience—to her own charming studio in Oakhurst. Lauryn and her staff cater to all skin types with facials that flush dirt from pores and waxing services that swipe away unwanted fuzz. Various makeup wands summon cherry-red lips, tinted lashes, smoky eyes, and orange hopscotch courts on the studio’s floor. Skilled therapist Candice plies her nimble fingers during massages in modalities ranging from soothing Swedish to penetrating deep tissue.
The Lash Lady’s lash lady emphasizes quality. With this care in her work, Teri adds eyelash-extension flares or full sets of glamour extensions. Her work has been featured around the joyfully tearful eyes of brides on their wedding days.
Lash Out! helps clients gussy up their peepers with synthetic lashes that add natural-looking length and fullness for as long as three weeks without a touch-up treatment. The salon’s selection of lashes includes up to eight different lengths, three thicknesses, and two degrees of curl, allowing visitors to customize their lids' appearance. By affixing each lash with irritant-free, waterproof glue, the aestheticians ensure that clients can still participate in any number of aquatic endeavors, including swimming, showering, and bobbing for office supplies. In addition to eyelash extensions, the aestheticians offer their own signature services, which can include waxing services, glycolic peels, and facials with Jan Marini Skin Research products and fruit-enzyme masks.
The chic stylists of The Glam Bar pushed the concept of a blowout bar, where clients can walk in and have hair washed and styled from a menu of glamorous looks into a new direction by incorporating brow, makeup, and special-event services. The Glam Bar indulges manes with eight distinct hairstyles that leave tresses glimmering in a sleek blowout or a mess of beachy waves. A host of add-ons further enhance each style, nourishing hair with a rejuvenating wash or making it glow with a smoothing keratin complex treatment. The Glam Bar's boutique focuses on beautifying salon-goers with makeup applications, from classic to minimalist sun-kissed looks. Waxing services take care of unwanted facial hair with lip-defuzzing and brow-arching treatments. Those looking for an entire makeover can stop by the event bar, where staffers help create lavish ensembles for any occasion or the wardrobe bar, which houses new clothes for clients to mix and match until they find their perfect outfit. Despite the heavy levels of glamour, The Glam Bar keeps its carbon footprint small by utilizing organic haircare products and ecofriendly hair tools, including flat irons and blow driers. The chic, white salon, accented by various hues of wood, further boasts a Mother Nature-approved space as recycled materials create the business and gift cards and iPad 2s are offered instead of magazines or forcing clients to tap into their echolocation to track down celebrities for their current gossip.
