At The New Makeover Salon, the stylists aim to make clients look and feel their best, whether they come in with a specific hairstyle in mind or are unsure of how a hummingbird got lodged in their ponytail. In addition to cuts, colors, and updos, the hair gurus help clients unwind from a stressful week with complimentary glasses of wine or coffee. Threading and waxing services rid clients of unwanted hair, and men can also journey to the salon for a professional face shave.
For Dr. Goodnight, it's not about instant results: "I want to be able to get together with my patients when we’re all in our 90s to talk about what a wonderful life we’ve all had and how great we still feel and look." To that end, he joins his wife, Marianne, a certified nurse, in taking a whole body approach to long-term beauty.
Dr. Goodnight trained at UCLA and is a fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon. While always looking for the least-invasive option, he uses a combination of technologies to help patients reach their desired goals. But the transformations don't end in the treatment room. As certified fitness trainers, the husband and wife team educates clients on how to increase their health through nutrition, exercise, and avoiding open manholes.
Within a soothing, lush pink-and-purple space, the stylists at Cloud 9 Salon focus their talents on three key areas: hair, nails, and makeup. Multifaceted stylists can elongate locks with extensions, smoothen strands with deep conditioning, or add glazes to hair shaped like a tasty donut. Aside from coating fingers in Shellac gel, nail techs perform more inventive manicures, such as the Caviar, wherein tiny beads are sprinkled atop the still-wet color of your choice. Lastly, makeup artists rejuvenate faces with temporary lashes, decorate eyes with subtle or dramatic makeup, and even teach clients how to create such smoky looks themselves.
Owners and licensed aestheticians Sandra Cossa-Ortiz and Colleen McMahon tend to all of Dare to be Bare's clients, and the pair has garnered praise from Westchester Magazine for their warm personalities and thorough attention to detail. By incorporating ultrasonic vibrations into their treatments, they promote vitamin absorption, encourage collagen regeneration, and reduce wrinkles caused by frowning or impersonating a raisin. They also pamper skin surfaces with facials, diamond microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal. For clients inclined to more traditional hair-removal methods, Sandra and Colleen liberate hirsute patches using a lavender-chamomile-blended wax that lends skin a flower's smoothness and attractiveness to butterflies.
With services such as ombre hair color, permanent straightening treatments, and braiding at her salon, Marijana Hair and Color, Marijana Dinic clearly knows what's on-trend in the world of style and beauty. She and her staff help customers stay on top of the latest styles by creating a gradual dark-to-light hair-color effect, by smoothing frizzy locks, and by twisting strands into playful fishtail, waterfall, and French braids.
They also add hues to hair in the form of highlights and single-process color, create face-flattering haircuts, and add extensions using human hair or yarn.
Dedicated to revitalizing and beautifying clients, Skin Care Center of New Jersey, LLC's medically trained aestheticians secure an edge by seeking out physician-formulated products and by staying up to date on the most advanced procedures. Treatments vary greatly in both technique and effect, from deeply exfoliating chemical peels that entail a topical application of lactic or salicylic acid to noninvasive electrolysis designed to inhibit the growth of unwanted hair. The center also employs cosmetic ELOS technology, which can emit either intense-pulsed-light energy to remove hair or radio frequencies to promote collagen growth everywhere wrinkly except for the spleen.
