Complimentary plush towels and protective eyewear are just a few of the pluses at California Tanning Salon. Only stocking beds less than three years old and changing tanning bulbs at 75% of their projected life are a few of the others. This attention to details is all in the service of their customers and quality tans. As all three of their salons boast at least 10 beds, they also treat customers to the convenience of never needing an appointment. Catering to those preferring sunless tans, they offer the Mystic Tan automated spray booth at the Ledgewood location. Furthermore, customers can partake in a Midas Touch with customized airbrush bronzing at the Clifton location.
Inside Spa & Nails 21, nails take center stage as more than just itch scratchers. Nail technicians transform them into pieces of art, sporting smooth edges with zero cuticle overgrowth encroaching on designs. The techs also soften rough surfaces of skin, ensuring hands and feet are soft enough to mash a delicious pot of potatoes. Postgrooming, they top nails with a colorful polish or long-lasting gel polish that remains chip-free for weeks.

Elite Hair Studio and Spa's staffers travel to New York, LA, London, and Paris for frequent training, returning to the studio with newly acquired skills to better meet client needs during custom services. The stylists begin treatments with a complimentary consultation to determine the cut angles that will flatter cheekbones or what blend of hair color will accentuate complexion, eye color, or the necklace that can't be removed due to a curse. Through signature facials, the aestheticians evict blemishes, and nail techs pamper long-forgotten cuticles before overshadowing them with gleaming polish. Before treatments, the staff directs guests to recumbent leather chairs flanked by wood-framed mirrors and furnishes each visitor with cucumber-infused water.
The beauty specialists at La Bella Hair and Nail Spa keep their attention intently focused on the hair they are arranging into elegant up-dos or the nails they are decorating with glittery gel polish, pausing only to cheerfully greet clients as they enter. The skilled staff dances across the hardwood floor of the sunlit space, draping clients in smocks to prepare for haircuts and color treatments and guiding others to private treatment rooms for body-waxing services. They sit pedicure clients on cushy armchairs before treating their toes to luxurious peppermint, green tea, and silk spa pedicures. The staff specializes in quick and quality eyelash-extension applications, expertly elongating lashes with their own brand of glamorous, natural extensions in less than 30 minutes. They even offer extension-training workshops and demonstrations for those interested in recreating the dazzling look on themselves, a friend, or a jack-o-lantern.
As a girl of just 13 or 14, Amita perched in her aunts’ hair salon and watched with fascination as they snipped clients’ tresses. Today, Amita still watches the flash of scissors, but now they are in the hands of skilled stylists in her own salon.
Amita bustles through the shop, mixing honey, sugar, and lemon to create her own wax for hair-removal treatments, her specialty. She also mixes her own all-natural henna paste for embellishing hands and feet with elaborate whorls and loops. This attentiveness to the products used in her salon, combined with more than a quarter century of experience in the industry, has led Amita to insist that her stylists wield quality elixirs from Paul Mitchell and Biolage. The salon’s skincare specialists employ Repêchage products to renew visages wrinkled from a lifetime of frowning at a Rubik’s cube.
