Named “Salon of the Year” by Salon Today magazine and one of the “Top 100 Salons in America” by Elle, Bangz Salon & Wellness Spa has established itself as a premier salon and day spa in New Jersey and the greater tri-state, metropolitan area.

Bangz is built in an 1889 masonic temple. “This is a salon and spa inside a beautiful and historic building,” Tremarco says. This unique factor is just the start of what makes Bangz stand out.

Winning the North American Hairstyling Award for “Salon of the Year” was a standout moment for the salon, an award that Tremarco calls the “Emmy’s of hair.”

Bangz offers spa, hair, and chemical services. These include skin care, hair removal, nail services, and various body treatments.

They are currently offering a “Gold Collection,” with options including a 24 kt. Gold Facial, Micro Gold Deluxe Facial, 24 kt. Gold Hydrating Body Polish, Golden Ritual For Two, and 24 kt. Golden Duo. Gold boosts blood flow, spreads cellular processes, restores elasticity, and creates glowing even skin tone.

“We want to keep every client that we touch,” Tremarco says. Customer service is extremely important and all measures are taken to ensure that clients leave happy.
