The salon was originally opened in South Orange, NJ by Caesar Crimi in 1968. Caesar named his beloved salon, Caesar's Palace.
However, when the casino named Caesar's Palace came to Atlantic City in 1979 it realized that a hair salon in South Orange had already incorporated the same name 11 years prior. A long and painful lawsuit followed which was featured on the front pages of the Star Ledger and the New York Times as well as radio and TV news coverage. The Casino eventually won the case and took the name from the salon which resulted in the current name,
Moods in Hair, inc.
Caesar's son, Phil, now operates the salon and has been since 1985. The salon is in the same location as when it first opened.
