Rene and Natalie of Solstice Studio execute cuts, color services, and keratin treatments using professional-quality haircare products. To imbue dos with rich hues, they use Ian Zachary color, and to de-frizz tresses and leave them shiny and strong, they apply La Brasiliana keratin treatments. They also use the plant-extract-infused products of Smart Solutions by Dennis Bernard to protect hair and infuse it with antioxidants.
Raw honey, cucumber, and vitamin C might sound like the ingredients of a refreshing summer cocktail, and at Namaste Day Spa, that cocktail will be splashed on your face. These are just some of the ingredients of the desert facial, a treatment that aims to hydrate skin and combat sun damage. Other services have similarly delicious elements, such as the Ultimate Manicure with a cream massage, or the Ultimate Namaste Pedicure with a peppermint foot mask, which can soften soles more effectively than a pair of sandpaper sandals.
Despite all the edible ingredients, the spa hardly resembles a restaurant. Filled with decorative plants and bright white walls, it's more likely to bring to mind a tranquil beach oasis. Here, every pedicure takes place on a private couch heaped with colorful pillows. In other rooms, aestheticians customize procedures to different skin types and wax away unwanted body hair as massage therapists unknot muscles with a combination of Swedish kneads, guided stretching, reflexology, and aromatherapy. Throughout every service, the calming environment and decor conspire to put guests fully at ease.
Maite and Luis Cruces were burned out from a life overloaded with work and stress. It wasn't until the couple moved to Florida and studied professional massage therapy that they learned firsthand about the benefits from strengthening the connection between mind and body. At Lool Ha Spa, Maite and Luis not only get personal satisfaction out of helping clients unwind, but they find relaxation while massaging knots out of tense backs or popping the bubble wrap cushioning fragile packages.
The Cruces' personal experience with the mind-body-spirit connection is what inspires the spa's holistic perspective. Though its list of massage modalities is extensive?including Swedish, hot-stone, reflexology, and seaweed-enhanced treatments?Lool Ha Spa offers more than massage therapy. Waxing services keep skin smooth, and a variety of facials, chemical peels, and light-therapy treatments help revitalize weary complexions.
Guests entering the Bernard Anthony Salon take in the elegance of vanilla walls offset by mocha-stained wood flooring and styling stations perched before full-length mirrors. After a complimentary consultation, beauty specialists cut and curl hair or reimagine it entirely with coloring treatments defined by Pureology hues. Frizzy locks fall into line during Keratin Complex therapies, and Moroccanoil conditions locks of any texture. To combat signs of aging and voter fraud committed by dead skin cells, aestheticians slather the skin with moisturizing facials and tend to the digits with manicure and pedicure treatments.
In place of barber chairs, Bananas Salon for Kids parks tricked-out sports cars or Barbie mobiles at each of its haircutting stations. In the driver's seat, each youngster barrels down an imaginary highway and lets imaginary winds race through his or her ever-shortening hair. Friendly, talented stylists play along and keep the mood fun as they impart Disney-star style onto domes with trendy cuts, intricate braids, or fancy updos. Spa treatments introduce the art of advanced hygiene with manicures and more. Parties literally celebrate in style with beauty packages, snacks, and goodie bags.
Wall sconces and elegant chandeliers cast golden glow on Hair Philosophy's caramel-hued walls and leather L-shaped sofas. Amid these modern accents, owners Anita and Taesha transform tresses with high-end products by Schwarzkopf L'Oreal, and Redken. Clients can also solicit the salon's waxing services to nix unwanted facial hair from clients and their teenage cabbage patch dolls.
