Since 1974, Hollywood Institute of Beauty Careers' dedicated instructors have edified spa and salon hopefuls in the tricks of the beauty-boosting trade. Under the watchful eye of a seasoned professional, each soon-to-be beautician performs a variety of services on visitors to earn the certification of a license massage therapist or the gilded epaulettes of an aesthetician. At both the Hollywood and Miami Beach locations, clients can help students achieve their goals by simply indulging in rejuvenating facials, stylish cuts and colors, and relaxing rubdowns.
At Slim Body Lipo, certified laser technicians target stubborn fat and loose skin with painless red-light treatments. The Painless Lipo Laser technology streams potent 635-nanometer light from 144 medical-grade diodes. The device's nonthermal energy and staff's repeated chants of "Open sesame" cause fat cells to release some of their contents, which can then be flushed out via natural body processes. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic and NASA have proven the safety and effectiveness of treatments that use specific red-light wavelengths. The procedure can be modified to address sagging skin, fine lines, blemishes, and scars by boosting collagen and elastin production on the face.
At Stella Stratta Esthetics International, aesthetician and owner Stella Stratta works to correct virtually all skin concerns, from wrinkles and dark spots to unwanted hair and cellulite. To do so, she uses professional Exel skincare spa products culled from Argentina’s Patagonia region, a remote area unspoiled by the modern world’s ubiquitous chemicals and rival jetpack gangs.
In addition to fielding skin concerns, she also beautifies exteriors with clothing, jewelry, and accessories from her boutique. It stocks belts, shawls, and woven leather wallets—each crafted from Argentine designers.
Licensed massage therapists at Reliable Wellness Solutions uses their skills to boost both health and beauty.

A wide variety of other services, including reflexology, body purification therapy, and aromatherapy are also available.
The stylists at Hair Salon for You don't touch a pair of scissors until they know the exact style and look their clients are going for. Only then do they begin working to transform that vision into striking reality. Of course, the stylists are also happy to help clients come up with ideas. They draw from their extensive training to offer suggestions before tailoring the hairdo to match the client's personal style and disposition. This same level of personalized attention and collaboration extends to the other beauty services, too, from ammonia-free hair coloring to Brazilian keratin treatments and nail care.
