1. “Rainbow hair colors are big, and we like golden marigold and reddish tones for both women and men. For salt-and-pepper hair, we add icy arctic-blonde highlights for super-minimal upkeep.”
—Salvatore Minardi, owner/hair designer, Salvatore Minardi Salon in Madison

2. “Vibrant new Xtreme eyelash extensions are perfect for special occasions or daily wear. They are weightless, natural looking and water resistant so you can swim or shower worry-free.”
—Jodi Catania, lead esthetician, Frank Anthony Salon in Chester

3. “We’re bringing back the ’20s in the ’20s! It’s all about porcelain skin and clean makeup that emphasizes lips and eyes.”
—Angela Pantaleone, founder, Coterie17 in Robbinsville

4. “We like strong bobs, modern shags and bold curtain bangs. ‘Lived-in’ color and side barrettes can really clean up a client’s spring vibe.”
Jackie Ferguson, owner/stylist, Color Bar Hair Salon in Cedar Knolls

5. “If your hair is 25 percent grey, there’s no need to color it. Instead, opt for semipermanent color that lasts 4–6 weeks and makes greys look like highlights. If you’re mostly grey, consider keratin to make hair more manageable.”
Linsey Barbuto, founder/artistic director, Perlei Salon in Wayne

6. “In three steps and 30 minutes, we can cleanse, peel, extract, hydrate and protect skin with a Hydrafacial. It minimizes signs of aging and recharges skin with nourishing peptides.”
Claudia Georgescu, esthetician, J. Walker Wellness-Spa in Bernardsville

7. “Clean, non-toxic ingredients and eco-friendly packaging are the new norm, especially with the surge of indie brands.”
Debra Helias, skin-care manager, Bangz Salon & Wellness Spa in Montclair

8. “Our favorite spring beauty trend is waxing the back-of-neck hairline to eliminate baby hair for a clean ponytail line. It’s fast and affordable—about $16.”
Alana Alva, salon director, LunchboxWax in Morristown and Westfield

9. “OPI’s newest gel collection, Mexico City, offers energizing, vibrant colors. The classic French is also in style, with fun, bright hues.”
Brunilda Lushaj, master nail technician, Depasquale the Spa in Morris Plains

10. Facial fillers are moving in an exciting new direction. Unlike commercial fillers such as Juvederm, innovative stem-cell fillers are generated by one’s own body, eliminating the risk of allergic reaction. A good volume of stem cells can be harvested from the abdomen, mixed with protein-rich plasma (PRP) and injected into skin tissues as a single filler treatment. The entire procedure can be done within one hour.”
