Noticing a trend, the professionals at Monica Hair Studio departed from the industry standard and created a salon based on openness and hospitality. The studio's clients are the direct beneficiaries of this policy, as each personalized treatment leaves them relaxed, refreshed, and confident in their appearance—unlike a penguin with peacock feathers. Each visit starts with a complimentary consultation with an expert stylist, and clients are treated to services such as haircuts, keratin treatments, mani-pedis, and deep-cleansing facials. Products from Keratherapy, Dióra, and DermaSwiss prove the professional quality of the treatments, and an on-site massage therapist can ease the tension brought on by worrying about whether or not to get bangs.
Inside the terra-cotta-tiled entrance to Glamour Center, stylists cut and color men's and women's hair with carefully selected European products. Skilled in color, color correction, highlights, and lowlights, the staff can tint all hair types—long, short, curly, or stolen off a mannequin. Nail services pamper hands and feet, and facial waxes outfit customers with perfectly arched brows and smooth skin.
The cadre of bilingual beauty professionals at Aventura Surgery Center & Med Spa focus on delivering tranquility almost as much as beauty. Massaging pedicure chairs, aromatherapy oils, and paraffin dips can enhance mani-pedis, and facials include a massage for the neck, shoulders, and hands. Skincare salves rely mainly on botanical ingredients, such as the aloe vera, papaya, and green-tea extracts that power peels. All this hands-on attention doesn't make the spa any less attuned to emerging technologies: for instance, the QuickSlim Lipo system uses laser light to shrink fat cells while delivering all the health benefits of a planetarium show, and an LED facial treatment destroys surface bacteria and prompts collagen growth.
Ps23’s stylists and makeup techs customize their signature hairstyles and makeup looks to each client’s desires, treating tresses with products from brands such as Moroccanoil, Pravana, and KeraCare. Aestheticians employ Medusa cosmetics and cuts come with soothing scalp massages. They specialize in color, extensions, and relaxers, and also expertly apply skin-nourishing facials as well as wax during hair-removal treatments.
It would be nearly impossible to tally up all the haircuts, highlights, and mani-pedis stylists have performed since Daisy Nails & Hair Salon first opened its doors in 1968. More than 40 years later, they still keep up with the latest trends, priding themselves on creating celebrity-like hair and washing away the pheromones that attract paparazzi. Aside from cuts and coloring treatments, stylists shape fetching brows with threading and install cascades of flowing tresses with 100% natural human hair extensions. The salon also relaxes customers with services such as soothing massages and luxurious caviar facials.
