A nail technician cradles a foot in her hands, a file rhythmically see-sawing along the contour of each nail. The pedicure client sinks further into the cushy chair, its unseen kneaders steamrolling back muscles into relaxing submission. Artistic Beauty Salon aims to imbue a sense of tranquility with every service, offering steaming cups of coffee, chilled water, and blankets for patrons to test their new hairstyle's durability during afternoon naps.
The salon unleashes a team of four stylists to mold manes into chic new styles. The tress experts also suffuse hair with ammonia-free, herbal-based hues in color treatments such as custom lowlights, a customer favorite that makes strands pop with streaks of sultry color. European waxing services forge clean and smooth physiques, and layers of Essie and Masglo lacquer crown manicures and pedicures in a shade to match the season or to help nails to blend in during clandestine fist bumps.
The cadre of bilingual beauty professionals at Aventura Surgery Center & Med Spa focus on delivering tranquility almost as much as beauty. Massaging pedicure chairs, aromatherapy oils, and paraffin dips can enhance mani-pedis, and facials include a massage for the neck, shoulders, and hands. Skincare salves rely mainly on botanical ingredients, such as the aloe vera, papaya, and green-tea extracts that power peels. All this hands-on attention doesn't make the spa any less attuned to emerging technologies: for instance, the QuickSlim Lipo system uses laser light to shrink fat cells while delivering all the health benefits of a planetarium show, and an LED facial treatment destroys surface bacteria and prompts collagen growth.
Though the talented stylists at New Image Beauty Salon spend much of their time renovating outmoded coiffures and evicting unwelcome strands, they also focus their beauty-boosting expertise on refreshing complexions with a variety of skin treatments. The beauticians keep their scissors, flat irons, and waxing wands in tow six days a week, easily scheduling appointments for regular upkeep or emergency waxing sessions when bear costumes refuse to come off. New Image’s glycolic facials and peels launch faces toward epidermal excellence, and their threading services reshape bushy brows into slim eye accents.
Noticing a trend, the professionals at Monica Hair Studio departed from the industry standard and created a salon based on openness and hospitality. The studio's clients are the direct beneficiaries of this policy, as each personalized treatment leaves them relaxed, refreshed, and confident in their appearance—unlike a penguin with peacock feathers. Each visit starts with a complimentary consultation with an expert stylist, and clients are treated to services such as haircuts, keratin treatments, mani-pedis, and deep-cleansing facials. Products from Keratherapy, Dióra, and DermaSwiss prove the professional quality of the treatments, and an on-site massage therapist can ease the tension brought on by worrying about whether or not to get bangs.
It would be nearly impossible to tally up all the haircuts, highlights, and mani-pedis stylists have performed since Daisy Nails & Hair Salon first opened its doors in 1968. More than 40 years later, they still keep up with the latest trends, priding themselves on creating celebrity-like hair and washing away the pheromones that attract paparazzi. Aside from cuts and coloring treatments, stylists shape fetching brows with threading and install cascades of flowing tresses with 100% natural human hair extensions. The salon also relaxes customers with services such as soothing massages and luxurious caviar facials.
