The skilled shutterbugs at Mi Amor Studio capture flattering, intimate angles during tasteful boudoir photo shoots. They aim to cultivate a glamorous experience for all subjects, enlisting professional makeup artists and hairstylists to elevate the natural beauty of each subject to camera-ready works of art. The encouraging photographers put subjects at ease while helping them strike appealing poses and plying them with chic beverages and hors d'oeuvres. The sensual images can then be burned on CDs, immortalized in picture books that brim with up to 75 photos, or printed and tucked between the pages of the library’s copy of On the Origin of Species. In addition to boudoir services, Mi Amor Studio offers hair services such as keratin blow-outs, highlights, conditioning treatments, and haircuts for women, men and children. Airbrush tanning, manicures, and pedicures round out the salon's services.
South Beach Tans and Spa partitions its newly remodeled facility into two separate spaces: a secluded spa area offering skincare and waxing services and a livelier hallway that opens into private UV- and spray-tanning rooms. Clients can purchase single sessions or monthly packages for regular beds as well as VHO beds, which employ 42 lamps to produce a darker tan.
The company’s aestheticians curate complexions in warm, softly lit treatment rooms with noninvasive skin treatments designed to soften the signs of aging. The spa team also specializes in hair-removal using sugaring paste—a compound blended from sugar, lemon juice, and water—that exfoliates skin while yanking follicles out by the root, ensuring less hair breakage than tweezing or blasts from a freeze ray.
Word has it that Luxxe Skin Spa's president Donna Maloy can spray tan a mannequin from 100 paces away. She and her crew of technicians are all expert airbrush marksmen and highly trained to darken complexions without harmful UV rays. But the skin spa isn?t solely a tanning studio. Clients may also receive an invigorating facial or a dynamic array of hair-removal techniques, such as waxing, threading, and convincing sideburns to pursue an acting career. The salon also employs licensed massage therapists for relaxing Swedish massages and deep-tissue bodywork to ease tension in lower-layer muscles.
