The stylists at Harmony Salon balance outer beauty with inner peace, adhering to owner Leo's belief that true allure radiates outward. Between the soothing sea-green and white walls of the salon, stylists draw out each client's inner chic with hair, nail, and waxing services. Treated with Alfaparf Milano and Coppola hair products, strands lose their split ends in exchange for vibrant color and shine, which can be purchased from rainbows using bags of hair. Creative pampering sessions for feet include the fruit-smoothie-bath pedicure and Leo's Volcanic pedicure, which leaves toes hot enough to melt clogs into stylish open-toe shoes.
Dermatone Skin Rejuvenation Center's licensed technicians and nurses wield FDA-certified radio-frequency generators for skin-tightening treatments that seek to mitigate stretch marks and cellulite. The therapeutic, deep-seeking heat massages existing collagen and promotes the production of new collagen in hopes of firmer skin surfaces. The clinic and its aestheticians, however, don't only offer this treatment?they also present a slate of facials designed with essential oils, clay masks, and vitamin C. Additionally, their weight-loss program, which is referred to as Last12Pounds uses vitamin injections, recipe books, and freezing one's snacks in a block of ice to help people look and feel better.
Tim Palmer's walls are filled with various diplomas and certifications in the field of aesthetics. But perhaps his most important skill is one that can't be learned in a class: his ability to make both men and women feel comfortable in a spa setting. While some male clients often experience a bit of trepidation before going in for treatments such as waxing, Tim's experience in working with both genders has made him a go-to technician for hair removal, facials, and peels for both sexes. Tim's extensive studies have also included bodywork.

Basic facials with steam and extractions cleanse specific skin types, while facial patches reinvigorate the skin with algae or olive-tree extracts. Alternatively, aestheticians pamper the whole body with services such as a relaxing Japanese massage and a Hormeta scrub exfoliation, which lets clients feel the smoothing effects of volcanic rock without having to roll down the slope of Krakatoa. To help clients achieve the results of their treatments at home, Body Minute carries its own line of paraben-free, Swiss-made beauty products.
Specializing in Brazilian bikini and full-body waxing, Sayos Body Waxing Center provides services for both men and women. The glass-fronted shop uses a European style of waxing that doesn’t rely on the painful old method of applying cloth strips and peeling them away, which often results in skin irritation and inflammation. Here, the wax itself is removed directly, after being allowed to set briefly on the skin, resulting in a cleaner, more comfortable experience. The same could be said of the treatment rooms themselves, which, though sparse, give a nod to the healthy, clean procedure being performed. Sayos relies on honey wax. The shop also provides facials, massages and manicures and pedicures inside their smallish space.
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.

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.
