Using mainly natural, hand-blended products, the aestheticians of Believe Day Spa give faces a rosy glow, make hands and feet softer with mani-pedis, and remove unwanted hair via sugaring—an ancient art that uses a sticky paste to whisk away strands without adhering to skin. Customizable facials use organic, cruelty-free Éminence products, inspired by Hungarian-spa culture, fresh produce, and the traditional gazpacho baths of Europe.
Gold picture frames, curlicue chandeliers, and animal prints accent the chocolate-hued drawing room where hair and nails receive royal treatments at Oliva Salon & Spa.

Under the expert guidance of Physical Medicine Center's Dr. Robert Lupo and Nu Image Med Spa Tampa's Dr. Dennis Deruelle, both locations' expert staffs harness the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each of six sessions over the course of two weeks, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
The glittering chandeliers in Kennedy Salon & Day Spa reflect more than just new 'dos and fresh manicures—they glinted above plumes of smoke in the days when the 1920s bungalow served as a cigar factory and smoking lounge. Original crown molding, handpicked pieces of antique furniture, and cigar posters keep the salon tied to its sepia-toned past, while experienced staff work to keep beauty techniques up-to-date. Today, stylists and aestheticians beautify bods with hand-guided airbrush tanning and makeup to keep customers looking beautiful. Downstairs, continuously trained stylists shear, color, and twist tresses into updos for weddings or tractor pulls, and upstairs, technicians purify pores with wine and mud facials. Manicures and pedicures for men and women buff nails to a natural sheen or daub them with vivid lacquer from OPI, Essie, or Creative, and massages assuage muscle tension with hot stones and aromatherapy oils.
