At Salon Pure, which has been repeatedly named Best Hair Salon by readers of New Jersey Monthly Magazine, the skilled duo of Amy Kaczowski and Heather Rizzo presides over a team of deft stylists. They distill their salon?s philosophy into the three Ps: pure, passion, and perfection. These guidelines inform their crew, who snip men's, women's, and children's locks into classic or modern 'dos and add vibrancy and depth with color and highlights. The salon also staffs nail technicians to gussy up digits with chip-resistant shellac polish, as well as aestheticians to banish fuzz from underarms before days lounging on the beach or evenings high-fiving the president.
Each person has unique bedding needs, and that’s why Princeton Mattress’s owners Janeen and Jim carry a range of mattresses to accommodate sleepers of all types. Joined by a staff of sleep consultants—who boast 33 years’ combined experience in the industry—they help each customer choose the perfect spot to rest their head. Inside a pastel-walled showroom, customers test out eco-friendly mattresses from Paramount, pressure-relieving 100% pure organic natural latex mattresses from Organicpedic, memory-foam mattresses from Tempur-Pedic and iComfort, and classic mattresses from Simmons Beautyrest and Serta Perfect Sleeper, for which Princeton Mattress is an authorized dealer. Princeton also sells handcrafted kids’ furniture by New Hampshire–based company Oak Designs. For purchases of $599 and up, staffers will deliver new bedding and remove old bedding, allowing customers to gaslight their roommates with a secret furniture swap.
Housed in a cozy, restored home, Copper River Salon & Spa came to be a member of the National Association of Eco-Friendly Salons & Spas through a series of carefully planned and executed steps by ecoconscious owner and stylist, Barbara Weigand. Melding her long-time interests in both earth-conscious recycling and hair artistry, she opened Copper River in 2011 after working closely with architects who specialize in environmentally friendly designs. Inside the two-story green salon, stylists perform a variety of hair-centric services under energy-efficient lights, and the spa is home to relaxing facials and massages, surrounded by repurposed materials whenever possible.
