Helmed by ambidextrous hairdresser Ben De Cordova, who garnered a first-place Green Award at the 2010 International Fantasy Hair Competition, Salon De Cordova soothes strands and shoulders with passionate attention to artistry and detail. Wig whisperers wield well-sharpened scissors to tame overgrown dos (a $40 value), releasing bad dreams that have been trapped in there for months. After blowing bristles smooth and dry, a soothing shiatsu massage (a $35 value) squeezes stress from the client's scalp and neck, as well as squeezes rainwater from their shoulder pads. Heads depart Salon de Cordova silkier, slightly lighter, and accentuated with a relaxed smile.

Nu Image Med Spa Tampa brings medical expertise into a spa-like environment. Expertly aimed laser beams take on multiple tasks, alternately nipping hair follicles in the bud or restoring aging skin to youthful opulence.

Topical treatments such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion reduce signs of aging by sloughing off dull outer layers and unveiling new, fresh skin. Nu Image Med Spa Tampa's practitioners hire private detectives to keep tabs on the beauty industry's latest research and accept only the most effective skincare products by companies such as Obagi and Skin Medica for use in conjunction with beauty treatments.
