The coloring and styling products used by stylists at Escape Salon aim to be as good for the earth as they are for the hair and scalp. Using the Organic Salon Systems, which includes both organic hair color and a formaldehyde-free keratin system, the treatments forgo the use of ammonia and other harmful chemicals that can be damaging to clients' hair. The salon also offers airbrush tans, which bronze the skin without harmful rays, and feather hair extensions, which extend the client's hair or feathered wings.
The staff at D'Nicole Salon and Spa has cultivated a relaxing haven dedicated to hair, skin, and nailcare that earned the studio recognition as one of Courier Posts' Best Day Spas. Featuring products from Redken, Moroccanoil, and American Crew, stylists whip up fashionable hairdos and add brushstrokes of color, while aestheticians draw youthful glows from cheeks with cleansers and exfoliants. Tanning technicians use airbrush equipment to grace the body with a sun-kissed glow that won't lead to a nasty divorce with the moon, though any stressful misunderstandings can be easily swept away under the gliding strokes of a Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone massage.
At Salon LimeLight, stylists approach each mane with an artistic eye. After consulting with clients, they enlist Goldwell color products and knowledge of trending styles to sculpt hair into fresh looks or neoclassical busts. Though they're trained in multiple beautifying services, the staff specializes in smoothing tresses with Brazilian blowouts and revitalizing them with gleaming color. Nail services add hue to digits as well, and specialty OPI gel manicures keep finger shades unmarked for up to two weeks. The comprehensive services unfold in an intimate boutique setting where natural light illuminates light lime walls and potted bamboo.
Talented hairstylists Danni, Renee, and Naeemah run the show at South Jersey House of Beauty, where they reinvent their customers’ looks with chic haircuts and color treatments. After discussing style goals with the client, the trio will get work, either snipping off split ends or revamping hues with full color treatments or luminous highlights. They skip the scissors all together while applying extensions, straightening hair with relaxers, or creating simple press and styles.
Moxie Blue Salon's seasoned stylists snip curls and hydrate locks with precise haircuts and salon services prefaced by a thorough consultation. After discussing desired angles and which cheekbone most deserves to display its tattoo, a scissors wielder frees scalps of split ends during the 45-minute haircut. Once lighter and layered, hairdos bask in a deep-conditioning treatment that hydrates heads and relaxes overly stressed strands. Feel free to have a stylist sprinkle coifs with partial or full highlights, a strand-coating lightener that adds dimensionality without inducing the misguided application of crayons. Or wrestle unruly locks into silky submission by undergoing a Control Zero treatment that works to transform frizzy hair into straight, shiny manes without the use of formaldehyde. Within the salon, sleek orange chairs pop against the clean white walls and brown counters as stylists snatch blow-dryers hanging leisurely from the ceiling.
Chic, light-filled confines replete with tall mirrors and an elegant white-and-brown color scheme welcome clients into Bernard’s Salon and Spa. The modern, opulent look of the space hints at a rich line of products used in-house, including Dermalogica, Unite, Becca, and Jan Marini. Ultramodern hairstyling and European hair-coloring services make use of these hair-buttressing serums to enliven tresses with fresh looks, and one-hour blow-outs leave strands more polished than the aftermath of two olive-oil trucks colliding on freshly waxed bowling-alley lanes. To attend to nonhairdocentric concerns, Bernard’s staff shows clients to private treatment rooms for massage, waxing, and facial services. The savvy team helps both spa and salon clients extend the lives of their services by recommending the proper products to take home or by encasing them in bubble-wrap cocoon.
