When preparing to work on a new tattoo, Sinjed repeatedly assures his clients that his equipment is sterile and his studio is safe. Those same promises don't extend to his work itself. With his needle, Sinjed turns crossed forearms into city skylines, backs into altars for patron deities, and abdomens into scenes of lions on the savannah. The artist specializes in black and white designs and portraits, which means that clients can finally memorialize a fallen relative or bring to life that dream about Steamboat Willie playing chess with Death.

A visit to Nail Club LLC is a bit like visiting a fairy godmother. Clients arrive with drab nails and seemingly enchanted forests of body hair and leave with gleaming digits and freshly waxed skin. To effect this transformation, aestheticians turn to OPI and Essie polishes, and Shellac and gel treatments. While the techs work their magic, guests can take a spin on the salon’s iPads.
“I’ve had a pair of clippers in my hand since I was 16,” says the eponymous Ray, whose passion for snipping locks drove him to found his own barbershop after years of working in others' hair studios. Now, he runs his own team of barbers, each of whom he trains personally. L’Oréal, Joico, and Paul Mitchell furnish the salon's services, allowing stylists to revamp manes of all hair textures and conditions, ranging from silken tresses to the hissing snakes of a gorgon. The staff enjoys challenges, from recreating classic styles to incorporating custom designs. Ray describes the microphone he once carved into a rapper’s hairscape before a photo shoot. “I like a challenge,” he explains. The design was challenging indeed—the mic's cord twined around his client’s head, down a sideburn, and across his face.
The stylists at Cranford Hair Company rarely come across a curl they can’t straighten or a strand they can’t lengthen. Though their skills are potentially intimidating—the staff includes a Redken-certified colorist and specialists in keratin straightening treatments—they go out of their way to make clients feel at ease. This combination of upscale styling and a relaxed atmosphere has won the salon many fans, as has a service menu that caters to both genders with precision haircuts, multidimensional coloring, and 100% human-hair extensions. The staff balances these scalp-oriented services with beauty treatments that focus on the rest of the body. Waxes remove hair entirely, and precise applications of airbrush makeup help skin glow brighter than a light bulb filled with plutonium.
