At Chase Evans Salon and Spa, the team of stylists and aestheticians is under no illusions about what it takes to create an excellent client experience. “Constant commitment,” the owner insists, is what drives each staff member to go above and beyond the call, from the way they listen to clients during complimentary consultations, to the ceremonial backflip with which they conclude each successful blowout. In between, hair stylists––each boasting more than 20 years of experience––craft custom cuts and colors with European products, helping heads adopt a look as vibrant as the chandeliers that flank the front of the salon.
Removed from the bustle of the salon, aestheticians conduct their tranquil services inside a soundproofed treatment room. Massage therapist Milena Barbic—who’s been with the salon since its opening—eases muscle tension with traditional and hot-stone modalities as quiet music calms clients and gently sings stress to sleep.
The friendly stylists at Jigsaw Hair Salon wield a wide range of Keune products as they customize hair services for women, men, teens, and children. Clients can watch their transformation play out in each station's teardrop-shaped mirror as stylist refresh color, straighten stands with Keratin and Japanese Chi treatments, and twirl tresses into elegant updos for special occasions. Within the professional yet relaxed atmosphere, clients are also beautified with French tip mani-pedis or makeup applications that show them how to apply cosmetics to highlight their best facial features or most regrettable tattoo.
When not giving their undivided attention to their clients, the salon's team spends time giving back to the community by participating in children's charity events including toy drives.
For 25 years, the team of specialists at New Age Massage and Health Center has promoted balanced bodies and minds with a variety of holistic services. Massage therapist Nicky Dhanani not only loosens muscles with acupressure massages or ancient Indian shirodhara treatments, but also remedies digestive woes as an instructor with the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy and knowledge acquired at a naturopathy hospital in Mumbai, India. Dhanani is also a reiki master and teacher, and uses pranic healing and chakra balancing to address concerns such as pain, stress, or a chronic inability to find Waldo.
Between Nicky and Sneha Dhanani, who is a licensed skincare expert completing studies in holistic nutrition, guests should be able to find an alternative-medicine treatment for any concern, be it physical or emotional.
South Florida Skin Care Systems' resident medical aesthetician, Denise Yopp, draws from more than 30 years of experience to beautify faces, fight wrinkles, and repair skin damage using products with active antioxidant ingredients. Denise meets with each client for a complimentary consultation, during which she designs custom treatments that can target issues such as acne scars, sun damage, and sagging skin. Noninvasive photofacials smooth out wrinkles, and permanent makeup eliminates the need to befriend clowns for their lipstick and eyeliner while tolerating one too many honking sounds. When not making over visages with other services, including chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments, Denise educates and lectures across the country.
Nancy Hernandez found her first client at the age of 16, and she didn't even need to leave her house. After experimenting with her sister's hair and spending more than 15 years in the beauty industry, Nancy now owns her own salon and spa, where she cultivates a stylish ambiance and concocts her own line of beauty products. Her experienced staff primps clients with a range of pampering services and employs products by Kérastase, Dermalogica, and Bumble and bumble. They also shade epidermises with Golden Sol spray-tan formula, which gives skin a bronze glow without the risks associated with lying under the sun's rays or a melting gong.
With more than 140 locations nationwide, B-Tan's tanning-booth technology and UV-free spray tans bronze the skin of people coast to coast. Its ultra-high-powered booths, such as the HT60 or HT54, ply skin with UV rays to build a tan quickly in short sessions. Alternatively, the sun shy can bask in the bronzing mist of Mystic Tan machines. After a few spritzes, the machines coat bodies in a streak-free color up to five shades darker than their natural skin tone.
