Stylists at Dolce Vita Salon and Spa shape their clients’ manes with precision cuts and smoothing keratin treatments. While clients sip a complimentary glass of wine, stylists paint locks with single-process color, add subtle face-framing highlights, or dot lids with eyelash extensions. In addition to hairstyling, the salon also features spray tanning, facials, and nail services. Meanwhile, rich chocolate chairs and cabinets and a large black-and-white photo of Marilyn Monroe, lend an air of '50s retro glamour to the salon’s atmosphere.
The full-service Artisans Salon dutifully sweeps away aesthetic doldrums with a slew of beautifying services. A signature mani-pedi combo pairs a half-hour hand wrangling with a 45-minute foot sprucing, giving patrons plenty of time to relax with an offered glass of wine or cup of tea. The European-style manicure begins with an exfoliation of arid skin to make way for a metacarpal-melting massage using aromatherapeutic oils. The mitt treatment concludes after a paraffin-wax-glove treatment seals in elasticity, softness, and color and seals out actual seals. Worn-out little piggies find solace in a warm sea-salt-enriched soak that launches the pedicure procedure. Softened hoof hulls then receive a verbena scrub and mask. A fragrant hot towel curtails high-strung nerves, and a knee-to-toes rubdown releases tension from legs to make room for better cargo, such as a year’s worth of Cadbury Creme Eggs. Toe-tops are then given the Rolls-Royce treatment and polished to a perfectly designed shine with nail varnish.
Celeste Day Spa strives to do more than revitalize its clients' appearances. The staff tries to turn every appointment into a rejuvenating escape from the stress and pressure of everyday life. Gentle music plays in the background, the scent of aromatherapy oils lingers in the air, and candles gently flicker atop the birthday cakes in each room. Within this serene setting, the massage therapists soothe aching muscles, the aestheticians apply body wraps rich with essential minerals and botanical extracts, and the stylists design flattering new hairdos. Even a traditional pedicure can become a luxuriant experience when the nail technicians incorporate paraffin dips or centering reflexology techniques. Going beyond traditional spa services, Celeste Day Spa also strives to help its clients by offering treatments intended to promote holistic health and wellbeing, such as hypnotherapy, chakra-balancing energy work, and life coaching.
Old-fashioned acrylic nails can sometimes be as much of a problem as they are a stylish statement. That's why the nail technicians at Something About Nails specialize in Nexgenails applications, a water-resistant artificial-nail system that has the appearance and physical qualities of natural talons. The odor-free treatments strengthen the nails, do no damage to the nail beds, and promote nail health with an infusion of calcium and vitamin E. This way, Something About Nails can provide visitors with a safe and healthy alternative to acrylic nails and fingertip chainmail. The duo also primps fingers and toes with a full menu of manicure and pedicure services, some of which include Shellac gel polish and soothing paraffin dips, as well as custom facial skincare.
Live tropical plants. Sultry warmth. Bright green and blue murals that cover the walls, floors, and ceilings, depicting rainforest flora and colorful parakeets. Although Boca Tanning Club’s dozens of locations are actually located throughout Florida, New York, and Texas, they exude a decidedly tropical vibe. Considering how seriously their technicians work to get clients beach-ready, it’s a pretty logical choice.
Each venue presents clients with a variety of sunless and UV tanning options, including VersaSpray and Evolv booths. Some locations also feature powerful high-pressure booths that you can adjust to deliver your desired amount of sunlight substitute.
Maintaining a commitment to cleanliness, the nail technicians at Nail-Know-How also train continuously in the latest techniques, including foot care for diabetic clients. Their efforts shine through during spa services for men and women in a cozy, relaxing, and clean environment. Nail technicians sculpt fingers and toenails during standard mani-pedis, as well as during more luxurious treatments, such as a peppermint pedicure infused with the same aromatic scents Santa Claus uses in his high-end line of colognes. While nails remain their specialty, the experts also wax off unwanted hair and perform lash- and brow-tinting services.
