As a girl of just 13 or 14, Amita perched in her aunts’ hair salon and watched with fascination as they snipped clients’ tresses. Today, Amita still watches the flash of scissors, but now they are in the hands of skilled stylists in her own salon.
Amita bustles through the shop, mixing honey, sugar, and lemon to create her own wax for hair-removal treatments, her specialty. She also mixes her own all-natural henna paste for embellishing hands and feet with elaborate whorls and loops. This attentiveness to the products used in her salon, combined with more than a quarter century of experience in the industry, has led Amita to insist that her stylists wield quality elixirs from Paul Mitchell and Biolage. The salon’s skincare specialists employ Repêchage products to renew visages wrinkled from a lifetime of frowning at a Rubik’s cube.
Caribbean Beach Club’s tanning technicians provide services and access to equipment that negate their clients’ need to sit in the sun in order to obtain a natural glow. The studio's level one, two, or three tanning beds allow guests to brandish a UV-based glow in quick 15 to 20-minute sessions. For a UV-free tan, organic airbrush tanning services apply a darkening formula that mimics the look of a natural tan much better than self-applied creams or constant blushing. The staff also offers anti-aging red light therapy treatments, and stocks a variety of tanning lotions, jewelry, candles, and gifts.
Mavida Salon encourages its staff to collaborate artistically with each client to create looks that are both modern and manageable. Its talented stylists, colorists, and makeup artists perform each service at full-length mirrors, allowing them to consider the complete picture while keeping an eye out for pirates. Aside from custom cuts, the intimate, burgundy-walled salon specializes in single- and double-process color and extensions as well as La-Brasiliana hair-smoothing keratin treatments, which counteract frizz for up to four months.
