Spa owner and director Silva Haroutunian is all about skincare.
Her establishment Silvianas Salon & Spa is known for its facials – all of which are done by Silva herself. She is meticulous about her technique and the customer experience she offers, and her facials, peels, collagen treatments and microdermabrasion services have been cited as some of Miami’s best spa services for years. The spa has two small, all-white, contemporary service rooms, making for very intimate surroundings.
In addition to face treatments, Silviana’s offers waxing, massage therapy, hand and foot treatments and manicures and pedicures, while providing a line of at-home products that have been thoroughly tested and recommended by – who else – Silva Haroutunian herself.
Overplucked eyebrows make a person look permanently surprised; undergroomed hairs anywhere make a person look jungly; a Wax On Wax Off waxing makes any eyebrow, leg, underarm, or elbow look astonishingly attractive. This Groupon gets you $40 of men's or women's waxing services for $20 at Wax On Wax Off, the Coconut Grove hair-removal specialist.
Coiffure & Nature's team of environmentally conscious aestheticians uses organic products to pamper patrons without compromising the earth. Patrons opting for waxing treatments are defuzzed using wax crafted from plant resins and beeswax, which help prevent allergies, rashes, and the spontaneous growth of anatomical candles. Tame Bert-like brows with an eyebrow wax ($18 for women, $20 for men), or decrease facial drag by whisking away spare follicles from the upper lip ($8 women, $10 men). Full leg ($42 women, $45 men) and bikini line waxes ($30 women, $35 men) are also available for those prepping for a swim meet or a bipedal porpoise look-alike contest.
Body Minute's focus on catering to women with busy lifestyles propelled its skin-care methods into more than 350 beauty centers across Europe—and then, across the pond. Whether requesting individual services or a monthly subscription, each of Body Minute's clients receives the convenience of quick treatments without the need for an appointment.
Basic facials with steam and extractions cleanse specific skin types, while facial patches reinvigorate the skin with algae or olive-tree extracts. Alternatively, aestheticians pamper the whole body with services such as a relaxing Japanese massage and a Hormeta scrub exfoliation, which lets clients feel the smoothing effects of volcanic rock without having to roll down the slope of Krakatoa. To help clients achieve the results of their treatments at home, Body Minute carries its own line of paraben-free, Swiss-made beauty products.
Visitors step through M Salon's doors and see a space divided into two distinct halves, each varying an aesthetic of black, white, and red. On the salon side, stylists possessing an artistic bent consult each client, considering face shape and lifestyle before delivering cuts and color work to emulate looks straight from recent runway shows. To complement their fashion-conscious approach, the hair designers rely on high-end products ranging from Moroccanoil to Pureology. On the spa side, aestheticians dispense beautifying services such as mani-pedis using OPI polishes and waxing using the Cirepil depilatory line.
M Salon's staffers go to exceptional lengths to cultivate guest comfort. While clients relax, the team is known to supply beverages, order and pickup lunch, or audit-proof clients' income taxes.
