iConnect Cafe's goal is a lofty one: to help revitalize the spiritual and cultural offerings and lifestyles in south Florida. A goal this ambitious calls for services that rise to the challenge, and so iConnect's founders do more than just provide organic tea, coffee, and café food. They also offer yoga classes that can help clients work up an appetite for their vegan bean burgers and kale salads, and lead healing reiki sessions that can be followed with a cup of organic joe. Body wraps wrap the body, promoting exfoliation and moisturizing with cucumbers, aloe, honey, or seaweed, and the five-point star treatment targets the scalp, hands, and feet with herbal salts, organic paparazzi, and medicated oils.

Coleen Evans planned on becoming a lawyer. After years of pondering law school, she realized that she'd rather work with deep auburns and chestnut browns than the legal system's shades of gray. Nearly three decades since trading in the gavel for the scissors, Coleen is the owner and artistic director of Salon Enchanted. She oversees a team of stylists that uses Paul Mitchell salon products as its members shape locks into asymmetrical ‘dos or polished styles that have passed the test of time: the SATs. Coleen requires her Paul Mitchell-certified stylists to attend at least three continuing-education classes every year to keep expanding their skill sets.
The salon's colorists blend hues by hand at a color bar, tweaking mixtures to produce chestnut tresses that match eyes or a mane so golden it passes for legal tender. Beyond the color bar, Coleen invites clients to relax in the H2O lounge. Hot towels cushion necks and mood lightning glimmers amid mint-green tiles and decorative branches that evoke a desert oasis.
