The Villa Salon opened its doors in 1969 in Martinsville, N.J. Vince Renda, the founder of this brand new salon, could have no idea the career, reputation, and legacy that he would establish.
Throughout the years, Vince and his wife Jeanne witnessed the ever-changing beauty industry. Owning multiple salons in New Jersey, he was able to remain successful throughout the years by adapting quickly and efficiently to each new trend.
Daughter Michelle Renda Gill watched her father and mother diligently and learned about the industry from an early age. In 2017, Michelle purchased the existing business. Since then, Michelle created a new brand for the business and fully established Social the Salon as a family hair salon supported by two generations of knowledge, success and hard work.
At Social, we value relationships, community and family. Always striving to build a deep, lasting connection, we appreciate every guest and member of our community individually. Our supportive culture communicates passion, loyalty, love and commitment to our trade and industry.
SOCIAL is more than a hair salon. It is a place where people can connect, unload and refresh. Our goal is to help our clients feel confident, empowered, and beautiful, inside and out.
"Feel confident, empowered, and beautiful, inside and out."
About Social the Salon
COVID-19 Precautions and 2021 at Social:
Our working stylists will not be double-booking when the opportunity allows. If they are running behind please know it is because they need to take the proper time to sanitize after each guest.
Please do not bring your children or extra guests with you to your appointment, as we need to minimize guests in common spaces. Our ample outdoor area is available for waiting, processing, or just relaxing!
If you are not feeling well, or even the slightest bit ill PLEASE DO NOT COME TO YOUR APPOINTMENT! We will be more than happy to reschedule you. The same protocol goes for our entire staff!
Be well, Be Safe! We are in this together!

Do something positive.
Little Words Project® encourages women to both be kind to themselves and to others.
Each handcrafted bracelet is made with a different inspirational word. They feature a tag inscribed with a registration code. This code is used to register your bracelet which enters you into the Nice Girl Gang - a community of women dedicated to building each other up. Wear your Little Word® for as long you need it to remind you of just how freakin’ great you are. Eventually, you’ll find someone who needs that reminder a little more - and you’ll pass it on, so they too can benefit from its message. Not only will it bring her the same good vibes it brought you, but it will also give her access to the Nice Girl community when she registers the same tag number on the Little Words Project® app or website.
Together we can do something positive to Girl World. But remember- it starts with you.
