As their spa’s name implies, the licensed technicians at Forever Young Body Works tap into the fountain of youth with detoxifying body wraps and nourishing facials that soften, hydrate, and set skin aglow. They supplement these skincare treatments with beautifying spray tans, eyelash tinting, and all-over waxing services. Permanent-makeup applications cut time out of the morning routine; similarly, ink-removal sessions save time that would otherwise be wasted explaining tattoos of string-theory equations to nosy strangers on the bus.
At the age of 11, Peggy Newlan began sculpting her mother's hair into beehives and french twists. She practiced on friends and family members, her fingers becoming more and more adept as she styled manes and picked locks. Despite her innate talent for hairstyling, Newlan pursued a career in accounting and banking. Eventually, she returned to her true calling, joined ooh la la Salon, and purchased the company in 2003.
Newlan now leads a team of stylists, as well as a massage therapist and a skincare expert who is an educator at Florida Academy. The beauty specialists perform a variety of services, from cuts, highlights, and ionic hair straightening to nailcare and spa services such as facials, massages, waxes, and spray tans.
Le Bijou Salon & Spa helps clients find inner tranquility while enhancing their exteriors. The salon’s stylists shear tresses into new ‘dos and alter colors in front of gold-framed mirrors. Aestheticians perform facial treatments with seaweed and essential oils, customizing products to banish crow’s feet or renew cheeks worn out from communing with puffer fish. They also lavish hands and feet with spa treatments and wax away unwanted fuzz from any area—even ears. Meanwhile, the spa’s massage therapists invite aching bodies into private treatment rooms, where they knead muscles in modalities that range from prenatal to craniosacral.
The team at Global Massage and Therapy Center wards off signs of aging with customized med-spa services offered seven days a week. Technicians employ ultrasonic cavitation to smooth lumps and bumps plaguing the lower half of the body, and exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments smooth away fine lines and age spots that spell out the client’s true birth year. Achy bodies can find relief with a customized hot-stone massage or an aromatherapy massage that employs a choice of four different blends of herbs, flowers, and fruit-infused oils. The center also provides professional makeup services for weddings, sweet 16s, and quinceañeras.
Stylists at Tiffany's International Salon focus on keeping both scalps and tresses looking healthy, working skillfully with thinning hair and styling braids to avoid breakage. Along with haircare, staffers also relax and beautify clients with massage therapy, nail services, waxing, and facials.
An acupuncture physician and two massage therapists have joined forces to help clients find relief from pain. Their treatments alleviate muscle spasms, arthritis, gastrointestinal issues, and allergies. The team also helps resolve emotional difficulties, such as insomnia, depression, and anxiety.
