With two locations, a dedicated team of professionals, and a full fleet of services, Aura Salon and Spa makes it easy for New Jerseyans to update their head threads, pamper their mugs, and soothe their bodies. Aura's staffers have worked closely with the internationally trained members of Redken 5th Avenue, who shared tips regarding proper salon procedures and which European accents to use when doling out haircuts. New clients enjoy a complimentary consultation that couples them with a fitting stylist or aesthetician for their service, be it a mani-pedi, a waxing, or a bridal updo, complete with champagne mimosas and the traditional prank phone call to the wedding caterer.

In these cozy, rustic environs, Allure owner and operator Monica Laratta manages a highly trained contingent of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists using her 20 years of industry experience. Decorative wall mirrors record the transformation of bland tresses into stylish and colorful dos with the help of products by AG Hair and TIGI. Elsewhere in the salon, essie and OPI nail polishes brighten fingers and toes. Likewise, spray tans and facials brighten complexions, and waxing nixes unwanted hair from lips, eyebrows, or misbehaving Chia pets.
On the top floor of a quaint two-story house, Antonio Michael Salon's staff of hairstylists, nail techs, and aestheticians work to engender tranquility through a vast offering of spa and salon services.

Hairdressers snip and style tresses and smooth away frizz or curl with four types of hair-texturing treatments.

Along with enlivening the head-bristles of women, men, and kids with creative and corrective cuts, the team of stylists at Alicia's Hair Design keep the inside of their own noggins looking chic with continuous educational courses. The salon's junior and senior scissor-wizards remodel ponytails, cowlicks, and frayed cockatoo crests with cuts for women ($60+) and men ($30+) before topping off tufts with optional hair treatment add-ons ($12–$15) such as Keratin Shine and Volume Extend for extra durability and nourishment. Children (ages 1–13) can strut the playground in slow-motion with trims ($15–$45) or fast-motion with buzz cuts ($20–$25). Blow-dry styling ($30+) soothes frazzled fuzz with a flat-iron or hot-roller treatment, and updos ($75+) give prom-bound belles a place to hide emergency hairspray and fire extinguishers for emergency hairspray emergencies.
