A trained aesthetician for nearly a decade, Jamila has created her own line of products—Jamila Skincare—that she currently uses in her work at Trimz Hair Salon. Guided by the education she received from the Concorde school, she's a strong supporter of regular facial treatments coupled with daily hydration in order to keep skin smooth and looking its youngest without crayon tattoos. To this end, her products, such as mud masks, eschew sulfur in favor of earth minerals and arctic clay. Her products include brow makeup and skincare ointments, crafted from botanical ingredients.
Tranquilla's mission is to give clients access to healthy nail and skin care that's all-natural, vegan, and organic whenever possible. And that's a commitment they take seriously. During manicures, clients can pay an additional fee and opt for Soyaffin hand therapy, a soy-based alternative to paraffin that offers more intense, ultra-softening results. When removing body hair, aestheticians use a soy-based botanical removal system called Nufree, which never dries and doesn't stick to the skin, so it doesn't pull or cause painful irritation. And Tranquilla's licensed nail techs play a part, too. They use SPARitual vegan nail lacquers on clients and after every appointment, they allow customers to take home their files and buffers. If the client would rather not, then the techs simply discard the tools, ensuring everything used on clients is always new and sterile.
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.
