High End Barbershop & Salon opened as a modest 390-square-foot shop in 2003 and has since expanded to nearly three times the size. Hoping to expand their expertise and attention to detail as well, owner Richie Garcia and his scissor-wielding staff sculpt new 'dos for men, women, and children. Highlights, extensions, and keratin treatments beautify women's hairstyles and hot-towel shaves prevent overgrown beards from violating city-zoning regulations.
The waxing wizards at Niko's Hair Studio stealthily capture and disappear unwanted facial and body hair. Both men and women can achieve a smoothness that rivals that of cool jazz and surrealist pick-up lines with an array of waxing services. Clients can reshape the arch of an eyebrow ($13+) or create a sleek profile by defuzzing their chins ($13+). After a wax, legs ($63+/full or $45+/half) can strut more aerodynamically and underarms ($30+) can experience uninhibited arm-flapping flight. Smooth a furry chest ($45+) into a blank canvas ready to be painted for football games or inscribed with a current home address.
A deep, healthy bronze hue floods customers' skin about four to six hours after expert technicians spritz bodies with Toto Creations' airbrush tanning solutions. That's because the DHA in the organic, aloe-based spray tan reacts with the amino acids in the outer layers of the skin, causing the bronze hues to appear. Technicians carefully apply the spray to ensure no drips or streaks, customizing the color to best suit each client's body type and distance from the nearest beach or roof that gets a lot of sun.
Deena went into the spray-tan business after seeing the effects of too much suntanning on her sister. She wanted to offer a convenient and safe alternative, and so she created her mobile spray-tanning service. Today, she spritzes clients with an allergen-, gluten-, and organic tanning solution that can last up to seven days.
The team of seasoned stylists at the boutique salon known as Blowout transforms customers with environmentally friendly beauty products such as Davines and Rahua. Cuts and styles can be complemented with signature blowout services, and the team performs updos for special events. While they sculpt new hairdos with cuts, coloring, and extensions, customers can peruse the staff’s past work, which hangs proudly on the walls. Conventional and airbrush makeup services are also available, including lash application.
The thread technicians at Men of Mendham Barbershop whisk away wild hairs from the heads of both men and boys with deft cuts and shaves. Sleek black-leather chairs welcome youngsters for the boys' cut, which lops mop tops to reveal a youngster's mischievous eyes or unsanctioned temporary tattoos. Or tend to mature locks with the men’s cut, which yields a careful sculpting accompanied by a full facial shave to control wily whiskers.
