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.
The massage therapists and aestheticians at Royal Serene House shun noxious odors and synthetic compounds for spa products that are natural and organic. The result is most immediately noticed by the nose, as the fragrance of lime leaf, apricot, and mango body scrubs swirl through the air while their sugars slough off dead skin cells. Mud from the Baltic Sea, seaweed from Norway, and Bohemian black organic fango clay keep facials free of chemicals as they draw out toxins and oils.
A full-service salon, Salon Tre’dici offers a variety of hair, nail, massage, and beauty services. Stylists perform haircuts and keratin treatments, deep conditioning, and highlights, and nail technicians tend to fingers and toes. Other treatments include makeup application, facials, and massage therapy.
For the past nine years, Designer Skin Tanning & Spa has been pampering customers with convenient, custom tanning and spa services. Open seven days a week, the business offers walk-in tanning (except for spray tanning, for which reservations are required) from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, so customers can easily fit tanning into any hectic work or goat-milking schedule. Eight UV beds help pale bodies to acquire the best tan for their skin type, and custom airbrush spray tans highlight contours with golden, sun-free highlights administered by female tanning professionals.
Shelves stocked with the brand's own signature Designer Skin tanning lotions share space with other high-quality tanning products from Swedish Beauty and Devoted Creations. Beyond combating chronic pallor, the spa also offers soothing facials, body wraps, and waxing services to keep skin smooth and Mac makeup to keep faces from fading away.
Chris Halabi brings his scissors, his razors, and his 12 years of haircutting experience to his clients’ homes and offices. Fresh off a 12-year stint at Pequannock Barber Shop, Chris began making trips to the offices of businessmen, the homes of fathers and sons, and the homes of elderly and disabled clients who were unable to venture out of the house for a haircut. With a veteran’s eye and rehearsed technique, Chris sculpts handsome men’s haircuts and renders faces smooth and stubble-free with razor shaves, all while clients relax in the comfort of their chosen surroundings.
Twenty-five years ago, a small group of women envisioned a client-centric salon where no two haircuts were alike. Ambiance Salon is the product of that vision, a place where stylists assess each client’s hair type and craft a look that meets their needs and goals.
Through sleek cuts, cutting-edge coloring, and keratin smoothing treatments, these stylists are able to breathe new life into hair. The staff also pampers with mani-pedis, eyebrow shaping, and airbrush tanning.
Doctors Alex and Susan Cocoziello helm COCO Aesthetics, a med spa where they harness their medical expertise to beautify clients with noninvasive services that include body sculpting, spider-vein removal, laser hair removal, and an IPL version of hair removal that zaps the follicle for prolonged smooth skin free of unwanted hair. As trained OB/GYNs, they also offer up medical services to soon-to-be moms, supplying them with prenatal care and complimentary parking for their storks.
