Support Local Business!!! Full Service Salon Opens in the Heart of North Brunswick!!!

North Brunswick, NJ -- Karen Marcial and Stephany Guarderas “dream big” the two business partners mentioned in an exclusive interview with www.NJnewsjersey.com reporters.  

When the two beauty lounge owners first met years ago while working together, it seemed like the right time to launch their new shop Color on Edge.

So, the duo “united forces to create something very big,” they said, adding that it was finally time to execute their vision. 

Passionate about the industry, the business partners have been doing hair for a very long time for friends and family. Now they want to share their knowledge with new patrons, as well, while offering that “higher level of service” and seamless in-salon experience.  

“We support customers,” they said of the establishment and what it represents. More service – always…  

Most of their existing clientele lives in North Brunswick, so the location made all the more sense. With decades of experience, the duo said they each “started at the bottom” but

never lost sight of their vision. Marcial started when she was in high school practicing on family,  herself and kids – it was a hobby that she loved, she said, citing her “lifelong dream.”

Receiving her license has paid off.  She went to beauty school at night in East Brunswick at Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools, recently renamed, Middlesex County Magnet Schools. 

Guarderas said she started when she was 15 years old. Her parents made her a play salon in their basement, she recalled. She’s a graduate of NJ’s Robert Fiance Beauty Schools.

“I went to school at Robert Fiance Beauty School and was working at home in my basement,” she said. “Than I got experience working at a salon and being a manager.”

Asked how they hooked up, Guarderas and Marcial, explained that while working together at the same salon, both definitely knew they had a good chemistry. (Besides, they did each others hair…)

“It simply became a reality,” said Marcial of their new venture.

And while the name Color On Edge took them many hours to finalize, it’s now open. 

“People want to look edgy and modern,” noted Guarderas.

Marcial, who specializes in balayage, ombre, hair extensions, color correction, and bridal hair, said. “Can't wait to see you behind my chair, to customize your look and needs.”

On November 13 they shared beauty tips and a few of their favorite stories with those present at an afternoon launch party/grand opening event, plus much more. 

The two operated individual studios in Sayreville and Woodbridge for about two years riding out the pandemic, but never losing their vision.

“We do braids, haircutting basic touch ups, highlighting, perms, kids cuts, braiding, extensions, eye brow tinting, eye lash select, nails and manicures,” added Guarderas. (Extensions, Braids, Brow Bar, Permanent Makeup, Lash Bar, Waxing.)
