Inside Salon Blanco, stylists expertly clip and color hair for men, women, and children. But the laid-back salon is more than just a hair enterprise: its menu includes a slew of beauty-boosting services, including mani-pedis, airbrush tans, and waxing.
Inside the recently remodeled Paul-Eric Sinclair salon, customers seated atop comfortable styling chairs sip coffee as stylists set to work primping hair and nails. The beauty crew cuts the manes of men, women, and kids, and strips away unwanted hair via waxing. Nail technicians bedazzle finger and toe tips in a spectrum of colors during manicures and pedicures, which, unlike getting trapped inside a panic room, induce relaxation.
A row of plush white leather seats stands out amid a sea of pink in Lace Nail Lab's main studio. The studio is furnished with seats that have soft red pillows, where the ministrations of dedicated nail technicians tend to feet and hands, maybe those of a client, maybe those of a clock that fell off the wall. Sparkling pink walls and Asian-inspired lamps add to the atmosphere of color-coded luxury. Facials, waxing, and massages round out the menu of beautifying services.
Upon entering the sleek, modern salon in South Beach, clients at Bdry Blow Bar are greeted by a staff of elite stylists that works to craft photo shoot-ready styles. They follow the French method, which takes into account each client?s facial proportions, cranial structure, and lifestyle before styling their hair. This results in a soft, natural movement, thanks in part to Moroccanoil and Unite products. Stylists help clients customize their appearance by guiding them through an iPad menu of nine signature blowout styles and five makeup looks.
At Brilliance New York, professional technicians tend to the skin, nails, and hair of their guests. Within an atmosphere that pays homage to New York City, stylists create new dos, or anoint heads of hair with conditioning products. Meanwhile, make-up applications draw attention to the features with well-placed hues and accents, all the while using organic and vegan cosmetics.
A childhood spent on the beach turned into a big business for the family behind the Boucher Brothers. They started the business in 1987 and continue to serve hotels, condos, and public beaches with concessions and beach rentals on Florida’s coasts, at Virginia Beach, and on the shores of Lake Michigan in Chicago. They take beachgoers parasailing above the waves and rent out a slew of equipment that includes Waverunners, boogie boards, and kayaks. Alternatively, landlubbers can sun themselves on lounge chairs or take shelter from the sun's rays in a cabana, beneath an umbrella, or in the shadow of a highly trained cumulus cloud. As a testament to the staff's dedication to pampering patrons, Boucher Brothers has received the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences' Five Star Diamond Award for 10 years running.
