The stylists at Eco Beauty Salon Spa cultivate natural beauty by using natural products—those made by Aveda, to be precise. Each of the company's haircare, skincare, and cosmetic formulas are made with plant- and flower-derived ingredients, and at least 89% of those ingredients hail from organic sources. These natural products elevate every one of the salon's treatments, from the essential-oil scalp massages that begin each cut and style to the slate of facials that rebalance complexions using customized masks and essential oils. Meanwhile, a happy hour menu available from 11–2 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday includes brow, lip, and face waxing packages, hair cuts and colors, and makeup touch ups.
In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York, New Jersey, and elsewhere.
Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
