Uniqut Salon

Pooja Shah

Your Unique


Pooja graduated with license in cosmetology from Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Right out of school, she landed a position at one of the most prestigious salons in the Princeton – La Jolie.

During her 5 years at the salon, Pooja worked extensively with lead stylists to cultivate her management, aesthetic, and brand capacity. She partnered with leadership to introduce threading as a new service, and helped promote this service to a variety of clients.

Having cultivated a multi-year, multi-disciplinary rapport in different specialties and skillsets, Pooja became keen on expanding her reach to her own community. In her own words, it was “time to give everyone access to the high-quality services and treatment she afforded her VIP clients at the salon.” Within months, her own salon, Uniqut Studios, opened its doors in 2008; one of the first of its kind in the region. Visitors and patrons alike have since found the establishment as cornerstone of the local industry and a safe space to bring community together year after year.

What Makes Uniqut Special


Personalized Attention

At UNIQUT, we realize that you are paying for our time and we make every effort to commit attention to your needs. From educating clients on different products and styling options to personally taking care of your service, we are determined to meet you where you’re at so you can get back to your busy life feeling nurtured and beautiful.

Relaxed At-Home Environment

At UNIQUT, we prioritize avery, calm, quiet and peaceful environment from the moment you walk through the door. With fresh amenities and sunlit space, we hope to create a refuge that helps you escape from the busy world outside our doors. A relaxed client is a more aligned client, and we take our responsibility to cultivate this for everyone who comes through our doors very seriously.

Children Always Welcome

Although some salons may discourage clients from bringing their children , we respect that many in our community have families that need attention and care. With us, there is no need to worry about children misbehaving and bothering other stylists or clients. As a mother first, Pooja brings a unique patience and loving kindness to the kids that visit the studio.

Established in 2008, UNIQUT is a licensed salon. We take clients only on appointment basis to save time of our valued patrons. UNIQUT is a home salon with a completely separate entrance and a private working space, which gives it an identity of its own.

Competitive Prices &
Exciting Specials

As a home-based salone, UNIQUT operate with lower overhead costs, allowing us to keep prices low and run regular specials for our clients.

Inclusive Space

At UNIQUT studios, we will not tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment. We are a judgement-free, safe, and inclusive business that will serve you no matter your race, age, nationality, ethnicity, religious affiliation, creed, sex, class, education status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, self-expression, survivor status, medical status, disability status, immigration status, veteran status, or any other group protected by state and federal law.

Deeper, More Personal Client-Stylist Relationships

At UNIQUT we see more than just the person in the salon chair; we also see the stories and lives they bring with them. Our goal is to understand the client, learn from their stories, and meet them where they’re at. We are committed to making sure clients can speak their minds and develop meaningful connections with our staff.
