Sparkle Salon – New!

6/2/2009 Update:


Back in March, Hoboken411 told you that this location on the corner of First and Willow would be a hair salon – and lo behold – it’s a hair salon called “Sparkle Salon!”

I’m not sure if they teach marketing, branding, and overall retail concepts in Beauty School – but if I wasn’t paying attention, a quick glance at this shop would lead me to believe they sell signs, type-faces and party favors. No offense, but some of the most successful hair salons in Hoboken just have one single sign with their name, and let their street-cred do the rest of the work. Why the need for such verbiage? Is competition that fierce?


Description: Hair Salon offering a plethora of beauty services
Address: 301 First Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030
Phone: 201-683-9585


More people = more hair salons

Unless everyone’s hair falls off simultaneously (and permanently) – the need for barbers and hair salons will always be there.

Spoke with a worker last week – and asked “when is it going to be ready? A couple months?” He replied – “no, I think in a couple weeks.”

Either he doesn’t know Hoboken – or these types of businesses are a snap to build!

Has anyone been inside? It would be nice to have a manicure place close to home, but I’m a little scared to see what it’s like inside. $25 manicure and pedicure special and the exterior has me afraid.

Hi Every One i read all comment about sparkle salon and i am not happy all people who gave comments about this salon they are wrong i went in to this salon cause some one gave me a flyer. I was so happy with the service and the price. I think this the salon where we can save some money and great service. I was paying $15 for eyebrow threading and more then 35 for pedicure & Manicure but they charge only $8.00 for eyebrow and $25 for pedicure and manicure. I am so happy and ask you to try this place. Do not put any comment without trying this place.
