Salon by the Sea is only a short wig fling from the Atlantic, and it shows in the warm, inviting ambiance. Natural light pours in through large front windows onto the beach-safari decor. Guests are pampered by experienced stylists, who modernize looks with flattering layers, highlights, keratin treatments, and make-up applications.
Kelly Lamicella has spent the past two decades in the salon industry, cultivating a loyal client base and assembling a team of experienced stylists and spa experts. While primping coiffures, her team uses products such as Redken and Keratin Complex to tint and smooth tendrils. Kelly's nail techs slather talons with CND Shellac polish, and her aestheticians use GloMinerals and Glow Skin Care products to cleanse, embellish, and tag epidermises before releasing them back into the wild. The symphony of rejuvenation culminates with a crescendo of massage played by therapists familiar with Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone techniques.
When stylists at A Touch of Class meet new clients, they work one-on-one to customize looks that mirror both current trends and customers' needs. Stylists augment hair services with extras such as deep-conditioning treatments with indulgent scalp massages. As Matrix specialists, they can also add highlights and full color. In addition to hair transformations, the staff whisks away stubble with waxing services, tidies up nails with mani-pedis, and readies individuals for special events with professional makeup applications. Like The Electric Slide, A Touch of Class accommodates bridal parties both large and small.:m]]
When Huffington Post contributor and TV personality Courtney Cachet wanted to try hair extensions, friends pointed her not to Manhattan but to Manasquan, New Jersey. According to Sea Breeze Salon co-owner Linnette Capozzoli, a lot of Big Apple beauty devotees make the pilgrimage to take advantage of the salon's specialty in So. Cap. Fusion extensions. Made with real human hair, the extensions have transformed the styles of red-carpet celebrities and five-star restaurant mops, and they are renowned for their ability to turn limp, lifeless strands into styles that are full, thick, and extremely flippable.
In addition to attracting far-flung clients for professional extensions, the salon doles out custom cuts and color and keeps things chic from head to feet with nail and waxing services. No stranger to trends, stylists also tame troubled manes with deep-conditioning treatments and keratin-based straightening formulas, and they style healthier scalps using Thermafuse and Brazilian Blowout products, which are sulfate-, paraben-, and donut-free.
For the staff at Salon Mulan, successfully serving their clients comes down to two things: training and the right tools. Each of the beauty professionals continuously attends classes and workshops to sharpen her skills. They also employ carefully chosen products during all of their waxing, aesthetic, and hair services. When dyeing hair, they use imported color products from It&ly Hairfashion. When conditioning, they use natural bamboo products from Alterna. Away from the salon chairs, aestheticians coat nails in OPI polish and dip dry feet into soothing paraffin wax, which leaves skin silky smooth.
On the salon floor, the team renders all their services amid wood and glass accents, green plants, and bright flowers. Beyond the styling area, wide pedicure thrones don't display even a sliver of wood—instead, the black-and-gray leather posterior pads comfortably seat clients.
