Transformation is the M.O. at Beyond Image Salon. A team of highly trained stylists breathes new life into hair one lock at a time, using everything from simple scissoring techniques to texturizing treatments to renew clients' appearances. In addition to women's cuts, hair services include ammonia-free coloring, keratin blowouts, and toner. They can even apply makeup for special occasions, as well as remove unwanted hair or super-glued bear fur with waxing treatments. Nail techs can put the finishing touches on new looks with tropical pedicures and spa manicures, while technicians help to slip waistlines with ultrasound cavitation sessions.
Within the private rooms at Patricia's Skin Care, clients relax as aestheticians perform soothing beauty treatments to bodies and faces. Head-to-toe wraps and scrubs exfoliate birthday suits, and infrared slimming treatments promote svelter physiques without surgery. Traditional facial and high-tech skin therapies––including those that call upon LED light and ultrasonic waves––cleanse pores and refine complexions. To shave time off morning routines, permanent-makeup applications imbue features with pigments that won't run in the shower or escape overnight.
Revival Skin and Body Care prides itself on being a retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. To that end, each facial comes with customized aromatherapy and a neck-and-shoulder massage with hot stones that melt tension on contact. Other studio offerings include spa staples such as waxing, salon services like eyelash extensions, and med-spa treatments including microdermbrasion and lymphatic drainage. To cap things off, each client can have a complimentary cup of tea, which they can drink themselves or donate to a presumably trembling ice-cream-truck driver.
Stephani Nguyen spends her days staring deeply into people?s eyes. But she's not trying to discern the elements of the soul?no, the lash stylist is merely using her skills to apply synthetic, silk, or mink eyelash extensions that boost the length and volume of natural lashes. She can apply anywhere from 50 to 110 lashes in a single session, opting for the greater number when her client wants eyes that really pop. Stephani is also an aesthetician, and she uses her skills in that regard to gently erase acne and signs of aging.
Allure Day Spa & Salon pampers clients with spa services that include facials and massages. During each treatment, clients enjoy a private experience complete with wine, cheese, or tea. Unlike a neighbor who refuses to wear pants while gardening, the spa is a responsible member of the community, often raising money for worthy causes such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
For the past 20 years, Tiano Salon Spa's owners, Tiano and Joseph, jet set to fashion capitals all over the world, including Paris, Berlin, and New York City, scooping up the latest and greatest in beauty techniques and trends. Joseph is a Pureology Serious Color Care educator, and together the two men helm a crew of stylists and skincare specialists who give their full attention to clients during Japanese hair straightening, formal up-dos, massages, and mani-pedis. Dark wood accents add a chic edge to the salon's modern aesthetic—an aesthetic that carries over into the stylists' sophisticated cuts, which they prep hair for with Redken, Pureology, and Schwarzkopf haircare products. Spa-going clients can indulge in customized treatments, from seaweed facials to waxing services, amid the dimly lit, private treatment room. Clients who drive in find ample metered and garage parking, as the salon resides amid the charming boutiques and restaurants of Coconut Grove.
