Curls are like hair mazes: full of twists and turns and often difficult to navigate. Luckily for the spiral-haired, MLC Salon's stylists have a road map. A sister salon to local barbershop Major League Cuts, MLC specializes in curly manes, with stylists chatting with clients about their hair wants and needs in both Spanish and English. Coifs of all kinds can undergo transformation at the full color bar, and patrons can study their new styles and eyebrow-waggling abilities in full-length, gilt-edged mirrors.
As the heads of The Chiropractic & Physical Therapy Center of New Jersey, Doctors of Chiropractic Michael and Nicolas Chillemi and their staff provide massage therapy and acupuncture, in addition to the chiropractic care and physical therapy for which their business is named. The traditional hands-on treatments pair with more advanced technologies and techniques, such as cold laser therapy, which helps to treat carpal-tunnel syndrome, and pregnancy chiropractic care.
Board-certified doctor Gisele Castelluber heads up a team of beauty professionals dedicated to fighting signs of aging wherever they crop up.

Each styling chair at Hilights Salon doubles as office space for the hairdressers, who start every session with a detailed consultation to make sure they understand the looks their clients desire. Once they have the right mental images, they clip and highlight hair, permanently straighten it, and craft locks into updos more intricate than a bird's nest made of Rubik's Cubes. The staff also includes a bridal specialist and two makeup artists who prep clients on location for their big day.
Good communication between the customer and stylist leads to the most flattering haircuts, so the staff at Studio Irma Beauty Treatments keeps the conversation flowing by fluently speaking English, Portuguese, and Spanish. After sussing out their clients' hair preferences, the professionals set about shaping and styling tresses into classic or trendy looks to suit their wishes. Trims are just the beginning—the salon's coloring, conditioning, and texturizing services can work together to add depth and dimension to virtually any style without writing them into a thoughtful screenplay.
The vibrant pink and yellow walls of Hair Ambition not only create a bright and sunny atmosphere, but they also reflect the cheerful personalities of each technician on staff. The salon's stylists include owner Crystal, who boasts 10 years of experience in the industry, and she leads her team in transforming clients’ manes with Matrix color and Keratin Complex by Coppola hair-straightening treatments. Diana, the salon's resident aesthetician, performs custom-tailored facials to keep complexions healthy and glowing brighter than a child prodigy born with sequined skin.
