There is a touch of luxury right here in downtown Hammonton. Tucked away in a beautiful upstairs location that once was a fire station many years ago, Taffeta is a boutique salon and day spa with breathtaking views of main street below it. The aromatic smell lingers throughout the Salon. The skylights and open layout of the salon brings everyone together providing a comforting feel to this upscale boutique.


Taffeta Salon opened two years ago in March 2020, although Alexandra Jenkins, the owner of Taffeta Salon, said she has been doing color, cutting, formal hair styling and makeup for weddings for 15 years. According to Alexandra, she had a number of clients building up and the numbers became more than she could handle alone, so she decided to open the Salon in order to accommodate everyone. “The name Taffeta came from the material my wedding gown was made from. I loved the name.” Alexandra said.


“Although we are most known for our on-location wedding hair and makeup I want guests to know we are a full-service salon and day spa and we offer traditional as well as the most current hair and skin care trends.” Alexandra said.


According to Alexandra, Taffeta excels in extensions. Donning them herself, Alexandra has been working with extensions for years and continues to only use one brand that she has found to be the best in quality, long-lasting and glamorous. The stylists are all certified to work with extensions and Alexandra keeps the salon up to date with the latest techniques.

“I am a big believer in education so we are constantly learning different techniques and staying on trend with the rest of the salon and beauty industry and what is popular right now.” Alexandra said.


Taffeta offers hair color services, haircutting and styling, brow lamination, custom hair extensions, eye lash extensions, airbrush and traditional makeup as well as spa services including facial treatments. Taffeta is located at 219 Bellevue Ave. The hours for Taffeta are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday by appointment only. Taffeta can be found on their webpage, Instagram, blog, Pinterest, YouTube and Facebook, or call (866) 219-8811.
