The stylists at Shockwave Salon share over 40 years of experience as they deftly tend to heads of hair in an airy studio space painted with bright reds and greens. They apply new looks with skilled hands that snip off excess locks, deep condition, or style dos. Additionally, Saturday nights see the salon filled with live music that enhances an atmosphere already packed with posters that pay homage to rock, punk, and jazz musicians.

Their exclusive use of hard wax makes the depilation experts at Solo Wax Center NJ stand out in the salon world. The staff uses this wax because it coddles sensitive skin better than gooey soft wax, requires no cloth strips, and is never mistaken for honey and added to hot drinks. These professionals wax men and women alike, treating nearly every part of the anatomy, from eyebrows to ankles. But waxing is just one arrow in the salon's beautification arsenal. Stylists transform tresses with expert cuts and multidimensional color, and mani-pedis are also available to restore nails' street cred without the violence of jewel-encrusted brass knuckles.
The stylists at Vanity Beauty Hair Salon do much more than just snip men's, women's, and kids' locks. They infuse moisture into dry hair with hydrating repair treatments and intense masks, and add bounce to straight 'dos with curl-inducing perms. Highlights add sun-kissed streaks and camouflage color masks grays or helps patrons blend into nine varieties of prairie grass. Simple blowouts create a polished look for special events and nights out, whereas formal styles prep clients for a walk down the aisle or red carpet.
If there's one thing owner and stylist Melissa Addison can't stand, it's a poorly installed weave. This professional disdain led to her founding of Cover Girlz Salon, where she and her team of stylists remedy poorly applied chemical processes and traction damage with high-quality sew-in weaves and extensions, trendy designer cuts, and smoothing relaxers. Once new looks have been achieved to their guests' satisfaction, Melissa and the team help them maintain their new look by doling out ample haircare education.
