José Eber Salon One Year Anniversary Celebration

Toast the one year anniversary of the #hippest salon in the Garden State with New Jersey’s go-to lifestyle series!

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino was at José Eber Salon in Millburn for their posh event that featured food, cocktails and tunes spun by celebrity music producer Valntino, who after traveling the world, boasted that the salon “is one of the best I’ve seen!”

In just one year in business, José Eber Salon has established themselves as the go-to salon for #HipNJ‘s glaministas. This full service salon is equipped with the latest beauty technology to provide full services in hair cuts and color, makeup for a luxe event, and designer nails.

Vanguard of Beauty, José Eber, reflected on the quality of each and every visit to the salon. Not only do clients leave with a show-stopping look, they come for the “one-of-a-kind experience!”

Owner Marc Farbstein explains how José’s decades of styling Hollywood’s top starlets translated into the salon’s success.  “José knows what’s hot, what’s in style, and what Beverly Hills is doing to create unforgettable and unique looks.  That hip factor is now in Short Hills, and people love it!”

José Eber Salon at St. Joseph’s Hospital

The Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation has teamed with the Center for Pediatric Cancers and Blood Disorders at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Paterson to make the mothers of pediatric cancer patients feel special!

Josè Eber Salon in Millburn donated their time to style hair, and do makeup and nails for the extraordinary mothers.

Follow-Up Counselor Ashley Marchese explained that a lot of the moms do not have the chance to get away from the hospital often, especially when their children require inpatient care. So, this day becomes a “me-day,” where the mothers have the opportunity to get pampered and relax.

Megan Balinski, hair stylist at Josè Eber Salon, said that this day is especially important to her because it hits home.  Her sister was diagnosed with cancer at the age of five. Seeing what her parents went through made her want to “give back to the mothers who are dealing with the same thing.”

Former New York Giants Super Bowl champion Chris Snee also attended this event, as the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation is close to his heart. He said that since these mothers do not have the time to go to the spa, “why not bring the spa to them?” He went on to say that this is “just another great example of what the Foundation does.”

These mothers and their children are fighting a battle that requires time and energy. “It’s hard to do anything because everything revolves around your kid,” makeover participant and mother Joanna stated.  So, this day was one for the moms. You deserve it.

2016 Paper Mill Playhouse Gala

The Paper Mill Playhouse of Millburn celebrated its 78th season with its annual Paper Mill Playhouse Gala, and #HipNJ was there for it all!

The Paper Mill Playhouse is a large regional theater known for staging shows, both new and old. It also serves as an established educational facility for aspiring actors.

Recently at the Hilton Short Hills, the Paper Mill team and guests gathered for a night of entertainment and celebration. Alongside #HipNJ, those in attendance included Paper Mill Board of Trustees member Carolyn Ferolito, Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken and Thomas Kean, the 48th Governor of New Jersey.

The gala was sold out (as it usually is!) making it Paper Mill’s largest fundraiser of the season. One major achievement that was celebrated was the successful adaption of “A Bronx Tale,” initially just a play, into a musical. Credit was given to the creative team, also in attendance, behind the production.

The Paper Mill Playhouse also recently announced that it has received a Tony Award for its successes as a regional theater. This was also recognized and the award will be presented to the playhouse at the Tony Awards on Sunday, June 12.
