As one would expect of a place named one of the best hair salons in the country by Elle, Roberto Giordano's eponymous salon and spa is the product of decades of hard work. Roberto himself divides his time between the styling station and the runway, where he organizes fashion shows.
Bumble and bumble, Kérastase, and Goldwell products beautify locks in the open-design salon, where mirrors float above tawny stylists' tables between sprays of purple orchids. Aestheticians rule over a separate spa suite to deliver facials, massages, and waxing with yonka products.
The therapists at Medical Massage Professionals don't simply point and push. Instead, they tailor their services to each client's needs—something they've been doing for the last decade. Founder Marian Sotelo-Paz has more than 20 years of industry experience under her fingers. At three locations around Miami, she's built a team of similarly seasoned professionals. All that experience is reflected in the team's versatility, which allows it to offer massage services for pain management, injury recovery, simple relaxation, and a variety of other ailments and issues.
At Azul Wellness, Dr. Erica Vislobokova and her team take a holistic approach to wellness that integrates chiropractic techniques, massage, and controlled stretching. Dr. Vislobokova's gentle adjusting technique releases tiny gas bubbles held hostage between askew vertebrae, helping spines straighten and cease making loud burping noises. Adjustments aside, the team applies the other treatments in her repertoire to her patients' complaints as needed, bolstering circulation with massage or supporting injured muscles with kinesio tape.
As Miami natives, the three founders of WaxMee Spa are lifelong beach-goers who understand the importance of a smooth body. In that spirit, they offer more than 40 different face and body waxing services administered with a European wax. To keep skin smooth, aestheticians also perform Yon-ka Paris facials that nourish faces with botanicals and exfoliating AHAs and BHAs. Guests can round out their visit with a trip to the salon, where stylists cut and color hair and nail technicians polish digits with Essie and OPI polishes.
"A one stop beauty shop" is how the owners of Health and Beauty of South Florida describe their business, and they have the wealth of services to prove it. Licensed aestheticians perform facials that hydrate and rejuvenate skin, and their body wraps zap inches from waistlines and help their clients detoxify. The center's massage therapists get to working on muscle aches and tension, which melt away thanks to applied pressure and gentle kneading. But pure beauty treatments aren't left out, either: mani-pedis add shine to fingers and toes, and updos give clients a new look for a night out on the town or a convenient place to store a pen.

At the modern and environmentally friendly Petit Spa, highly trained aestheticians and med-spa experts work to improve dry, oily, and acne-prone skin during chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and specialty facials. They use the hypoallergenic Babor skincare line from Germany and the botanical-laden Aquaroma line when tending to mugs, and they use an organic spray-tan solution with green-tea extract and anti-oxidants to bronze limbs.
To further rejuvenate bodies, they rely on toxin-flushing hydrotherapy treatments and tension-melting massages in Swedish, aromatherapy, or deep-tissue modalities. They even have a localized deep-tissue massage, which concentrates exclusively on the neck, back, and shoulders, leaving clients as stress-free as Christmas shopping in April.
