A head of green hair is not usually the desired outcome of a do-it-yourself coloring job. That's where Luscious Locks' owner Jessica Ramirez comes in; drawing from an education at a Paul Mitchell school and nine years in the haircare business, Jessica deals with such coiffure don'ts with finesse. Within light-strewn confines perched close to Lake Mineola, the stylist repairs damage from coloring mishaps and berets sculpted from taffy or simply spruces up locks with cuts that jive with each customer's lifestyle. She begins each hair appointment by luring out content sighs with a shampoo and a five-minute head massage.
Affinity Life Spa’s talented professionals perform an array of cosmetic and corrective services, including facials, LipoSonix, laser hair-removal treatments, IPL laser treatments, and permanent-makeup procedures. For patrons seeking stress relief, massages in the form of Swedish and deep-tissue modalities shepherd muscles into serene states; holistic treatments such as acupuncture and hypnosis target unhealthy habits and foster overall well-being. Staffers send guests home with a positive-thought card that helps keep dispositions brighter than a Harvard-educated flashlight.
Hand & Stone's licensed staff of aestheticians and muscle therapists relaxes ligaments and purifies pores with a variety of massages (a $79.95 value/session) and signature facials (a $79.95 value/session). Monthly kneading sessions may increase alertness, relieve anxiety, and improve one's attitude toward segway cops who don't use turn signals. The season of stress-busting marks three custom massages on your corporeal calendar, offering a choice of Swedish, deep tissue, sports, prenatal, and other styles to suit variously beleaguered bods.
Desiree Burrell, the owner of Restoration @ Desiree's Wellness Spa & Boutique, brings years of experience to soothing sun-damaged skin. She got her start in Beverly Hills, California, working there for 14 years before transferring her person and techniques to Minneola, Florida. She says her most popular service remains the Tri-Fecta non-surgical facelift. She kicks off the treatment with a thorough exfoliation of the skin using microdermabrasion. Then, she applies a peptide peel and follows it up with an oxygen facial that's infused by the dermacycling machine to help the skin breathe and heal.

As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability?Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa?s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
On the surface, Couture Skin is a spa. Its elegant decor and equally decadent selection of services justify its use of the word couture in its moniker. But digging deeper, one finds that the spa’s elegance extends beyond standard spa fare. Its shelves carry a wide range of skincare products, boutique items, and gifts available for purchase. The staff can even take their skills on the road for private skincare parties or open its doors for private party packages for kids, adults, and any mannequins who want a day off the sales floor.
