our story

Our Lambertville, NJ team of over 50 spa and salon technicians, assistants, and managers look forward to providing our clientele with award-winning salon styles and spa treatments.


Opening in 2004, Zanya Spa/Salon has set the standard for excellence for both salon and spa in Lambertville, New Jersey. The 10,000 square foot Salon and Spa, nestled along the Delaware River in the historic LaceWorks Factory Building, prides itself in providing the ultimate guest experience through education, consistency and the anticipation of needs.

First conceptualized by stylist Zanya Gissler in 1996, the 4-chair salon was originally located in New Hope, Pennsylvania. Gissler, having worked in New York City as a hair stylist and makeup artist for over 15 years, fulfilled the area’s need for a chic salon with a fashionable edge. After moving across the river to New Jersey, the new location not only gained a significant amount of square footage, but also expanded its service menu, offering every imaginable indulgence for the mind, body and spirit.

The full-service oasis maintains its reputation as one of the best salons in the nation, earning numerous accolades including Salon Today’s Top 200 Fastest Growing Salons in America each year since 2005, Best of Philly 2005 and the Spa Wish Gold Symbol of Excellence.


Zanya Spa Salon also serves as the ultimate escape for locals and tourists alike.

“Raising the bar of what’s not just acceptable in life, but what’s required to live fully is essential in all aspects of living; in your style and your well being”.
— Zanya Gissler
