THE TOUCHÉ STORY
Influenced by her father Michael, second generation hairdresser Vilya Klajman alongside native Italian master stylist Maria Bruna Teta founded Touché Salon de Beaute in 1990. The two established their partnership years before, working in various salons together all throughout New Jersey. After discussing their options, Vilya and Maria Bruna decided to embark on a new venture, opening their own salon, which they'd been dreaming to do for years. The two explored their options throughout Essex County, and they searched through-and-through for a suitable location for their new business, settling for a small shop in Short Hills. With the purchase of the venue, the Touché legacy had begun. For sixteen years, Vilya and Maria Bruna built the foundations of a hair empire and racked up an impressive list of clients. With hard work, time, and dedication, the ladies made Touché the new face of the Short Hills fashion scene.
In 2006, the stylists decided they should move to a larger venue to accommodate the booming business. Within due time, Vilya and Maria Bruna came across a shop for rent on the corner of Church and Main Street in Downtown Millburn. After vastly growing the business, they moved into the new location. Today, Touché Salon de Beaute prides itself on being a member of the Millburn–Short Hills community for over twenty-five years. After decades of hard work, Vilya and Maria Bruna have developed a clientele of professionals from all over the country. Their successful past has fueled their desire to provide clients with only the best service accompanied by their personalized experience and expertise.
DEDICATED TO QUALITY SERVICE
With a deep-rooted knowledge of the beauty and salon industry, Vilya Klajman founded Touché Salon de Beaute alongside her friend of many years, Maria Bruna, in the winter of 1990. She has spent over twenty-five years perfecting her cutting and styling techniques and becoming an expert at creating effortless women's and men's haircuts. Her passion is hair and beauty, and she provides a singular experience for every guest. Taking after her father, who was senior management at a barber shop in Livingston, Vilya knew this was her calling even when she was a young aspirant. "My favorite part of the appointment is the end," she says. "When I see the customer look in the mirror and see how they've changed... my job is done."
