As a welcoming gesture, Daymara Navarrete and her staff of licensed aestheticians press a cup of wine, tea, or coffee into the hands of arriving guests. The team fosters a familial bond with clients during services ranging from therapeutic wraps and massages to cuts, styles, and hair texturing. Each staff member offers experience in a particular area and hones his or her skills through continual training on new products, such as Gelish polish, or through wagers that they can get a bespectacled mannequin asked to prom. As they execute their pampering services, most of which call upon OPI products, staff members navigate between rows of pedicure chairs and black leather-backed salon chairs. Their busy hands release a symphony of soft sounds that reverberates off dark wood accents and sea-green walls as floral arrangements nod their colorful heads in time.
Helmed by master stylist and makeup artist Kat Koroniotis, the professionals at Oh La La Salon by Kat keep a finger on the pulse of the beauty industry to bring the latest techniques to each hair, skin, body, and nail service they perform. For instance, the salon's hairstylists specialize in thermo-cutting, an approach that uses specially heated scissors to seal the end of each snipped strand and help leave hair healthier for longer. The staff merges this passion for innovation with a slate of acclaimed products such as Tigi haircare serums, Wella hair dyes, and organic keratin proteins. Pevonia skincare products power pore-cleansing European facials, and nails fresh from mani-pedis bask in layers of OPI or Essie polish.
Under the tutelage of board-certified doctors, the staff at Miami MD Spa utilizes cutting-edge laser technology to help clients attain smooth skin and revitalized features. The FDA-approved Candela GentleYAG laser machine plies hair from men's and women's skin through a small applicator tip that leaves regions such as the legs, back, and face free of unwanted body hair and necks free of steel bolts. While high-tech gadgets flicker and pulse, spa treatments such as medical peels, facials, and microdermabrasions actively encourage youthful color and firm texture to return to a client's face after years of working as a California Raisin impersonator.
The staff at Just4Body Spa?uses all the tools at their disposal to help guests relax and refine.?From a massage therapist's hands to an advanced iLipo device, the means of reaching one's goals here are myriad. Swedish and deep-tissue massages offer a more analogue way of?easing the pain of tension and soreness, while also clearing the thoughts like an Etch ASketch spinning in a laundry machine.

Behind the treatment room doors at Med Lake Center, professionals use vacuum technology to diminish cellulite, laser energy to shut down fuzz-producing follicles, and massage techniques to banish tension from muscles. They can also remove cosmetics, oils, and lost left socks from pores during classic facials, or enhance eyes and lips with permanent makeup applications. It's not just about appearances here, though?the center also provides medical services in the form of examinations, lab work, and physical therapy sessions.
At Miami Nail Club & Spa, patrons are invited to outfit their talons with a diverse array of gel colors and acrylic nails. Nail art, whimsical designs, and tiny likenesses of Grover Cleveland also add flair to nails, turning manicures and pedicures into creative personal expressions. A technician can quickly pamper digits with a mini manicure, or she can boost overall beauty and relaxation with a spa package that includes a mani-pedi, a restorative facial, and a reflexology treatment.
