The artists at Empire Tattoo Inc adorn bodies with indelible designs and semipermanent pieces of jewelry. Their work ranges from realistic to abstract, spanning the gamut from portraits and florals to edgy venn diagrams. The cosmetic artist on staff imbues faces with permanent brow liner, eyeliner, and lip color using techniques approved by the Beau Institute of Permanent & Corrective Cosmetics.
Clients come to Massage Therapy At Bejanies to relax, get pampered, and enjoy a respite from the stresses of everyday life. The bodywork experts here specialize in delivering these feel-good services through techniques such as Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, and cranio-sacral massage. They also teach massage classes so that students may practice whisking away the tension away on their own.
With more than 30,000 products that range from blow-dryers to bronzing creams, Image Cosmetics Inc's inventory is like the beauty closet most women wish they had. Beyond representing top brands such as Dermalogica, Rusk, and Elizabeth Arden, each product is purchased wholesale (directly from the manufacturer or an authorized dealer) and priced up to 70% off retail. Those who find themselves frequent shoppers of Image's vast inventory can opt to enroll in a rewards program, which gifts them a point for every dollar they spend.
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.
Rizzieri is an Aveda-partnered beauty institute that doles out hair and skincare services. A cut and style (women, $18; men, $12) trims head-shrubs into an artfully presented garden, and partial highlights ($32+) brighten locks until they radiate like the sun eating a smaller sun. The Outer Peace facial ($42) arranges exfoliating treatises with blemishes, and skin fuzz cowers away from Rizzieri Aveda's specialists during hair-removal treatments, from eyebrows ($8), to bikini areas ($15), to the 3 inches inside of the ear.
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.
