David Alan wasn’t always a hairstylist. In fact, his original career path began at CCNY Film School. But David's eye for design and love of hair quickly sent him packing for beauty school and, later, to train under hair greats Mark Traynor--L’Oreal Paris colorist and stylist--and hat designer Lilly Daché. Now, more than 40 years later, David joins their ranks as owner of his namesake salon and spa where he instills his philosophy that hair should be unteased, untortured, unsprayed, and natural-looking.
But this doesn’t mean David and his legion of stylists aren’t capable of transforming hair with the latest trends and designs. Using Redken, Pureology, and KMS California hair care products, six levels of stylist highlight, condition, and straighten locks to complement any hair type and texture. And in the spa area, technicians rejuvenate bodies with mani-pedis, Eminence facials, and seaweed body wraps.
Along with a roster of beautifying services, guests are also treated to the Paramus shop’s décor as David Alan made sure to make his oyster-shaped salon aesthetically pleasing. Stained Brazil red oak floors and white walls enclose guests between mirrors made from nickel and less than 5% iron, which ensures reflections don't suffer from green glares or poor Tony Stark impressions.
The symbol of Ethereal Health & Wellness is the Mystic Knot, a design of six interwoven infinity symbols that represents a long, happy, and healthy life. That is exactly what owner Rene Marie Walters and her staff set out to help their clients achieve. Their services aim to boost both wellness and visages and include colon hydrotherapy sessions, yoga classes, organic facials, and body treatments.
Tom Augustyniak knows more than a thing or two about how the body works. In 1985, he earned his masters in physical education in Wroclaw, Poland, and he has a 3rd degree black belt in Judo to his name. (Tangentially, Judo translates to English as the "gentle way" and is the art of using someone's strength of over-exertion against them.) This preponderance of understanding informs Tom's extensive repertoire of massage techniques, which he officially honed at the Helma Institute of Massage Therapy in 1999. Gliding Swedish strokes simply easy pain while bolstering circulation, and more intensive deep tissue techniques target buried muscle knots. Tom's advanced Lypossage sessions aim to trim down excess inches by shooing away cellulite and melting any accidentally swallowed ice cubes. For clients who have insane schedules or are incapable of using maps, Tom is available for home visits in Bergen County.
At Visage Salon & Spa, an Aveda concept salon, stylists accentuate haircuts with glossing and demi colors or Bio Ionic straightening treatments. But hair isn’t all that leaves the salon brightened and shiny—something made clear by the diverse skills amongst the 13-person team. Skin care specialists customize Elemental Nature facials to hydrate and revive complexions, and administer natural alternatives to microdermabrasion and peels using Aveda botanicals that won’t leave behind redness or signs of irritation. On top of that, aromatherapy body polishes and sea salt body wraps render skin soft and radiant, waxing services do away with lingering scruff, and manicures and pedicures pamper fingers tired from constantly typing short stories about protagonists fighting to get their nails done.
