The manicurists at Serenity Springs Nail Spa bring style and color back to all 20 nails with standard and gel manicures and pedicures. In the same space, stylists do their part to beautify clients by cutting, conditioning, and styling their hair.
Curvy furniture and structural accents add dimension to the salon's all-white interior, where stylists, aestheticians, and nail techs pamper guests in heated massage chairs with an array of services. Using products by Wella, Soma, and Keratin Complex, hair pros cut, color, and apply deep-conditioning treatments. When reclining in a pedicure chair or prepping fingers for elegant thumb-wrestling bouts, guests are lavished in Shellac and OPI polishes. Facials are completed with the help of Dermalogica serums and microcurrent and microdermabrasion technology.
The dedicated staff members at Miami Skin Boutique and Spa pamper patrons with tranquil services administered within comfy confines. Thirty-minute mini massages soothe stressed-out backs with gentle kneading and lullabies delivered through fingertips via Morse code. The Sonya Dakar boot-camp facial harnesses handpicked products from the renowned skincare expert to invigorate visages with four levels of exfoliation. Wielding natural ingredients including pumpkin enzymes and green tea, aestheticians polish faces with steam, microdermabrasion, and a seaweed repair serum derived from kelp-based tool belts. The intraceutical oxygen-infusion facial treats sensitive countenances with vitamins, hyaluronic acid, and therapeutic-grade hyperbaric oxygen pressure. Sips of effervescent champagne and bites of fresh fruit enhance the experience.
With average temperatures in the '70s and '80s, it makes sense that Miami is full of body-baring outfits. All that skin is why people like the owners of Velour Med Spa were able to open a successful laser hair-removal business in 2005. With the hope of further beautifying bodies, they established Velour—a full med spa—in 2010.
Its certified medical aestheticians, who are supervised by a medical director, still perform the popular laser hair-removal treatments, but they also fade unwanted spider veins, smooth cellulite, and rely on intense pulsed light to refresh faces. In addition to beautifying clients, they relax with massages and mani-pedis, which take place in a pristine all-white room.
After graduating from the elite Vidal Sassoon Academy, John Toboas became an instructor there and later served as a hair designer or artistic director at numerous salons. At John Taboas Salon, he manages a staff of savvy stylists who transform tresses, remove unwanted spider veins and hair with lasers, and lessen the effects of aging with injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm.
