The adventures in Newark are endless. Between the restaurants, coffee shops, stores to shop in and places to venture too you'll never find yourself saying you're bored. 

After coming off a winter of hibernation and below freezing temperatures I couldn't wait to warm up this spring. Warming up with the weather and warming up with a new spring look. 

I ventured through Main Street and stumbled upon a piece of paradise, tucked upstairs above Grottos is a trendy, ambitious salon. 

Ambitions Salon on Main

With a view overlooking one of the busiest streets, the sun shines in so brightly as you glance over the nail polish selection for your upcoming mani-pedi. Take your pick of the comfy recliners in a semi-private room as you overlook the hustle of Main Street, and let your pedicure begin. 

Around the corner sit multiple chairs readily waiting the next client who strolls in for a simple trim, fancy up-do, color and highlight, or any creation pictured. Ranging from youngsters getting their first hair cut, to seniors attending their last prom, to an anxious bride prepping for her wedding day, or even a simple trim; Ambitions Salon offers many services for men, women, and children.

The local stylist have a passion for their career, and they are also passionate about giving back to the community, and keeping things local is always high on their list. Ambitions Salon participates in Relay For Life events throughout Newark, and they also bring the charity events into the salon. Keep an eye out because this fall for a small donation you can have pink extensions added to your new hair style, and the proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society.

You may end up with more than just a new hair cut, and a fresh coat of polish when you stop in, adding to the upbeat, fashion forward salon are displays of a multitude of accessories ranging from headbands to scarfs to nail polish to personalized wine glasses only found at Ambitions Salon on Main. 

The friendly smiles and welcoming voices make you feel at home the moment you enter. The outpouring personalities of the many talented stylist make you feel like lifelong friends, pair that with their amazing talent and abundant skill set and the only limitation is your imagination.
