It isn’t hype to tout what should quickly become an exclusive locale, given the star power of owner Jacqui Phillips, a former model who has brought her celebrity and TV makeup artistry up the hill from her former salon in Edgewater to the Galaxy Red Carpet Spa in Guttenberg. Friday night’s grand opening was packed, as expected, drawing hundreds of fans, admirers and the curious.
I’ve known Jacqui for some time now, and she definitely has the goods. You’ll recognize her instantly from the various TV programs she’s appeared on, as well as from her roster of big-name clients.
Jacqui has transformed some of the most popular faces — among them, former First Lady Laura Bush, Miss America 2005 Diedre Downs, Miss USA and MTV VJ Susie Castillo, Donald Trump, Jimmy Fallon, Cheryl Tiegs, and Carmen Electra. She’s toured with Judy Collins for five years, and has her own star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
All of her clients have trusted Jacqui’s unique specialties, including organic airbrush tanning and makeup, as well as eyelash extensions. She even has her own cosmetics line, developed with with her savvy and innovative business partner, Pasquale Destro.
But the Galaxy’s Red Carpet Spa — the brainchild of Marty Sergi, owner of the Mall at the Galaxy — will have much more.
Guttenberg Mayor Gerald Drasheff cut the ceremonial ribbon for the Grand Opening. Among those attending were West New York Mayor Sal Vega and his Police Director Al Bringa.
Not only will there be massage, hair styling, facials and waxing: The new facility also features the unique Slimline Oxygen Pod, which uses LED light technology developed by NASA along with pure oxygen, vibration and dry heat to improve circulation, tighten skin and reduce pain. You may even lose some weight.
Isn’t it time YOU were pampered like a celebrity? The Galaxy Red Carpet Spa offers the same luxury that has brought the rich and famous to Jacqui’s door over and again.
“Whether it is a quick massage for the busy professional, a quiet day of pampering and rejuvenation for body wellness, an overall tan to make you feel and look great, a couple’s night out, or full Spa experience for a bridal group,” Jacqui said, “we are happy to offer cutting-edge services, a beautiful facility and an exciting new experience.”
