From the moment guests walk or cartwheel into Ohana Spa of South Miami, a variety of stimuli work together to help them to relax: the sounds of calming waterfalls and the subtle smell of lavender, lemongrass, and peppermint. Owner Dionne Corona's eyebrow-shaping wizardry and custom facials have been featured in multiple publications, which isn’t a surprise considering Dionne has been in the business for more than 20 years.
Jessica Oviedo is a double threat—she's both a Brazilian waxing specialist and licensed medical esthetician. She uses this expertise, along with an arsenal of premium products, to help skin become both smooth to the touch and pleasing to the eye. She doesn't just perform treatments for the face, limbs, and extremities though. She also helms Brazilian waxing services, as well as luxurious vajacial treatments, in which she cleanses and moisturizes nether regions.
Though the words "waxing" and "relaxation" aren't often uttered in the same sentence, the place where Jennifer performs her services, ZenMe Massage & Spa, actively works to change that. The spa cultivates a serene state of mind with soothing earth-toned walls and comfy, overstuffed furniture. Hanging chandeliers and wood-framed mirrors add a chic flair to the zen-minded spot, which specializes in massages ranging from acupressure to reflexology.
Detlev Hair Studio's experienced aestheticians smooth out hirsute humans with follicle-felling treatments culled from its extensive menu of waxing services. Prep gams for a summery showcase with a lower-leg wax ($35), or prod eyebrows toward good behavior with a brow shaping ($23), transforming eye adornments into sleek lines or hidden Morse-code messages. Salon-goers can rid shoulders of fuzz ($25), neaten up a bikini line ($28), or de-fur chests ($40) while tucked within the angular, modern confines of Detlev’s cosmetically minded atelier. Detlev aids busy clients in their hair-removal quest by keeping doors open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week, removing unwanted stubble before morning commutes or after evening werewolf hunts.
LVS Salon Group's continually educated staff indulges clients' every feature with a kaleidoscopic slate of hair, nail, and skin services. While a stylist brightens a mane with highlights or blow-dries locks, a multitasking patron can lend paws to a technician for a professional manicure and pedicure crowned in durable gel lacquers or acrylic nails. For at-home beauty care or to sate the whines of unpampered mannequins, the salon stocks a brigade of products that includes Creative Nail Design, Matrix, Marilyn Brush, and Moroccanoil.
Every pair of eyes is unique. That's the view at Blink Lash Boutique, where owners Janelle Koch and Jen Pearson lead a skilled staff in providing custom eyelash extensions for their guests.

The strands themselves are available in a variety of styles and thicknesses to create looks from subtle to dramatic. No matter what the desired outcome, the team places client safety and comfort first?Jen and Janelle are both professional aestheticians, and all of their fellow lash stylists undergo rigorous training to ensure their work is suitably flirtatious.
