BEST HAIR SALONS:

TOP PICK: Bangz Salon & Wellness Spa

23 S. Fullerton Ave., Montclair 973.746.8426, bangz.net

This spa/salon has an upmarket, high-design vibe— it’s housed in a gorgeously converted old church, with a soaring two-level salon area—but the friendly feel is pure hometown. And yet you won’t find a more skillful staff anywhere: Bangz makes sure its stylists are firmly on the cutting edge, with weekly classes and frequent educational trips to salons in New York, Miami and L.A. The salon also offers extensions and keratin treatments, as well as a revolutionary hair transplant procedure, done in conjunction with a noted plastic surgeon.

BEST PLACES FOR HAIR REMOVAL:

TOP PICK: The Urban Muse

82 Broadway, Denville, 973.627.3455, theurbanmuse.com

Let’s face it—waxing isn’t the most relaxing experience in the world. But you just can’t help feeling relaxed at The Urban Muse, whether you’ve come for a Surrender massage or a Brazilian wax. Maybe it’s the gentle professional service or the Asian-inspired candlelit treatment rooms. Or maybe it’s because you know that whether you’re focusing on your upper lip, lower legs, bikini line or (guys) back, you’re guaranteed to emerge looking sleek and satisfied.

BEST MANI/PEDI:

TOP PICK: Depasquale the Spa

Powder Mill Plz., Route 10 East, Morris Plains 973.538.3811, depasqualethespa.com

Like all the offerings at this full-service European-style spa, manicures and pedicures are provided in an environment designed to promote relaxation and a sense of well-being, and everything here is impeccably clean, including the nail instruments, which are sterilized in a hospital-grade autoclave. Sure, you can drop in for a salonstyle mani or pedi, but you can also indulge yourself with a variety of special services such as a detoxifying pedicure, a full set of Light Concept Nails, or (our favorite) a warm-stone manicure.
