As their spa’s name implies, the licensed technicians at Forever Young Bodyworks tap into the fountain of youth with detoxifying body wraps and nourishing facials that soften, hydrate, and set skin aglow. They supplement these skincare treatments with beautifying spray tans, eyelash tinting, and all-over waxing services. Permanent-makeup applications cut time out of the morning routine; similarly, ink-removal sessions save time that would otherwise be wasted explaining tattoos of string-theory equations to nosy strangers on the bus.
At the age of 11, Peggy Newlan began sculpting her mother's hair into beehives and french twists. She practiced on friends and family members, her fingers becoming more and more adept as she styled manes and picked locks. Despite her innate talent for hairstyling, Newlan pursued a career in accounting and banking. Eventually, she returned to her true calling, joined ooh la la Salon, and purchased the company in 2003.
Newlan now leads a team of stylists, as well as a massage therapist and a skincare expert who is an educator at Florida Academy. The beauty specialists perform a variety of services, from cuts, highlights, and ionic hair straightening to nailcare and spa services such as facials, massages, waxes, and spray tans.
Le Bijou Salon & Spa helps clients find inner tranquility while enhancing their exteriors. The salon’s stylists shear tresses into new ‘dos and alter colors in front of gold-framed mirrors. Aestheticians perform facial treatments with seaweed and essential oils, customizing products to banish crow’s feet or renew cheeks worn out from communing with puffer fish. They also lavish hands and feet with spa treatments and wax away unwanted fuzz from any area—even ears. Meanwhile, the spa’s massage therapists invite aching bodies into private treatment rooms, where they knead muscles in modalities that range from prenatal to craniosacral.
The entire staff at Zen Wellness Studio is focused on overall wellness, uniting mind and body in a search from peace. Lead massage therapist, Dr. Amy Emme, smoothes tension from muscles with a variety of massage modalities, including Swedish, deep-tissue, reflexology, and medical massage. Massages are designed to soothe aching muscles, as well as promote restful sleep, reduce stress-inducing cortisol, and decrease pain. Also at the center are certified hypnotists, reiki masters, and a health coach who advises clients on attaining healthy lifestyles and which color M&M has the least calories.
When nationally licensed massage therapist Steve Ribortella assuages pain and relieves stress through massage therapy.

Once he sets to work, he customizes his strokes to accommodate a range of needs, from tense shoulders to tender hamstrings.
Stylists at Tiffany's International Salon focus on keeping both scalps and tresses looking healthy, working skillfully with thinning hair and styling braids to avoid breakage. Along with haircare, staffers also relax and beautify clients with massage therapy, nail services, waxing, and facials.
