The stylists at Shear Genius Hair Salon specialize in custom cuts, which run the gamut from layered looks and angled bobs to basic trims. The team also brightens locks with Famesi color, applying it all over, or concentrating it at strands' ends for highlights or an ombre effect. With keratin treatments, the team also straightens out curls, leaving a subtle curve behind or creating a totally straight style that, with well-placed Sharpie marks, doubles as a ruler.
When Michelle Parkes opened Core Salon & Spa, she didn't want just another cookie-cutter business. After spending two years as a national educator for Paul Brown Hawaii and 25 years working for other owners, she decided she wanted to do a salon her way. Her way was to surround herself with an unparalleled group of stylists, support staff, and a moat to guard against invading paparazzi. The end result was Core Salon & Spa, a beauty center manned by skilled stylists that use quality products from brands such as Yon-Ka, L'Oreal Professionnel, and Kevin Murphy.
Beach Bum Tanning's board-certified consultants speak with each client beforehand to determine the best tanning method for their golden-hued goals, allowing bronzed butterflies to emerge from their cocoons with a natural glow free of overexposure. The salon's Star Trekkian tanning beds come with features such as climate control, cool misting sprays, aromatic fragrances, and MP3 player inputs, and some beds are even open to the air to cut down on claustrophobia. As an alternative to tanning beds, the time-crunched can undergo an airbrush tanning that sun-gods skin without exposure to unforgiving UV rays or harsh Friar's Club roasts. Using a combination of fine-point- and wide-point-guided guns, Beach Bum's certified airbrush artists will shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to your body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
Salon Deja Vu cultivates an environment that’s reminiscent of a family home, right down to the complimentary cups of coffee and friendly conversations about today’s going allowance rates.

The salon's efforts have recently earned them the Daily Record's 2012 Morris County Reader's Choice Award for Best of the Best Hair Salon.
As kids caper about in a world of rides, games, and playground equipment at Giggles Play Station, their parents can rest assured knowing that the amusement emporium was built from the ground up to safely accommodate them in areas divided by age group. Among the indoor playground's attractions, toddlers enjoy exclusive access to their own padded play area, complete with a playhouse and kid-size construction vehicles. In the play station that's governed by specially trained safety staff, kids aged 1?8 clamber up padded ramps, careen down six slides, and plunge into the ball pit, which is sanitized regularly to keep bacteria and the purple cooties at bay. The arcade houses numerous ticket-earning diversions, including skee ball and basketball shooting, and siblings can settle rivalries while competing in games of air-hockey or on the twisty lanes of slot-car racing.
Giggle Play Station caters to adults as well, welcoming them to put their feet up when not cheering for their kids as they conquer slides or tour the facilities on the train ride. In addition to a menu of snacks, the caf? offers a vantage point for parents to keep an eye on their brood while building sculptures out of their mozzarella sticks.
