As owner and operator of LockStar Salon, April Conley spends her days researching the latest trends, motivating her staff, and styling and chatting with her clients––and by her account, it’s the greatest job in the world. Amid candelabras and black paisley wallpaper, April and her styling team can transform strands with an elegant scissor cut, hair-smoothing relaxers, or bold color treatments with one of the salon’s Toni & Guy– or Paul Mitchell–trained stylists. Guests may also dip their feet into the salon’s indulgent spa menu, which offers mani-pedis, restorative facials, and soothing aromatherapy bodywork.
Marilyn Oliveira is licensed as an aesthetician both here and abroad, and for the past 20 years, she has helped to rejuvenate skin and bodies with European-style beauty-boosting treatments. She customizes her signature facials to bring out the best in every skin type and regularly employs organic and anti-aging products. Her brushes dust makeup across the cheeks of brides and their wedding parties, and her wax de-fuzzes brows, lips, bodies, and permanently affixed sweaters to leave physiques beach-ready. She also performs manicures, pedicures, and other services inside her private, relaxed quarters within Martin’s Salon at Brick Market Place.

The talented, continuously trained staff at Total Look Salon caters to every client’s needs with a range of grooming services backed by a satisfaction guarantee. The Brazilian blowout leaves locks free of frizz for up to 12 weeks and actually improves hair's health, unlike flattening manes with a panini press. The treatment, which lasts about 90 minutes, uses a proprietary potion free of formaldehyde and other harsh chemicals.
