Grace Salon and Spa offers numerous means of beautification. Hair services such as cuts, keratin treatments, and color treatments can lead to complete reinvention of one’s personal style. On the spa side of things, facials and body scrubs leave the skin with a radiant glow and soft texture.

At Apex South Florida, Dr. W. Steve Haston and his crew of dedicated estheticians help turn back the clock on aging, using the industry's top technological advancements to restore youthful radiance. The experienced professionals diminish wrinkles with Botox injections and fractionated CO2 resurfacing which revitalizes the skin by stimulating production of face-firming collagen. To unearth fresher, younger looking skin, they rely on peels and microdermabrasion treatments that slough away old cells and accumulated dirt. They also embrace laser technology to zap away unwanted fuzz, vanish spider veins, and remove embarrassing "Dukakis '88" tattoos.
In addition to helping clients to unwind with massages facials, and synergy sauna sessions, the de-stress specialists at Shiraz Spa offer comfort to patients in the post-op stages of cosmetic surgery with a catalog of healing treatments. They also burnish bodies with permanent hair-removal sessions performed with state-of-the-art electrolysis and intense pulsed light (IPL) equipment.
The friendly aestheticians at Nailz 2 See & More have created a one-stop shop for beauty needs, including facials, waxing, and hairstyling. After their clients treat hands and feet with mani-pedis, which can be augmented with soothing paraffin dips, they can stop by the shop to stock up on beauty products and accessories.
Faye Bailey was beginning an uphill battle when she told her mother she wanted to open her own salon. Faye had been braiding and pressing hair since she was 14, but her mother worked as a teacher––and all 11 of her other children attended traditional colleges. After a brief stint at the university, though, Faye could no longer ignore the pull of hairstyling.
Thus, Faye moved from Macon, Georgia to Florida and started studying at a beauty school. Before long, her dream became a reality: she opened All Dolled Up Salons and Stores. Now a chain of five salons, including a braidery house, her stylists specialize in natural hairdos such as loc styling, cutting, and short hair wraps. But they also color, perform smoothing treatments, and affix weaves to natural hair.
Natural light pours through the salon's large front windows onto walls painted the deep blue-green of a tropical island. Amidst this relaxing ambiance, skilled stylists snip sharp scissor cuts and bedeck tresses with flattering highlights. Formaldehyde-free conditioning treatments are also available to reduce frizz for an easier morning routine. Guests may also request a gel manicure or receive a sun-kissed look without the UV rays via a spray-tan session.
