At Midtown Beauty Bar, experienced stylists and aestheticians cut, color, or wax off hair, and nail technicians decorate nails with regular or gel polishes. Then there are the makeup artists, whose airbrush system effortlessly dispatches a fine mist of pigment, unlike a hose filled with foundation. The result is a naturally glowing complexion and more even skin tone.
After gaining more than 10 years of hairstyling and coloring expertise at a South Beach salon, Danny Dillon opened his eponymous shop and now uses his hair-handling know-how to perform an array of services. Alongside his staff of stylists, Danny beautifies male and female locks with cuts and color treatments plus smoothing keratin treatments and elongating hair extensions.
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.
Evanesce Spa offers visitors a welcoming escape from the world via beautifying treatments meant to revive both body and spirit. Both take turns basking in attention during the signature Evanesce mani-pedi: nails look clean and chic after technicians groom and polish them, and the mind surrenders stress to a soothing sea-salt mud mask and sugar-green-tea-scrub foot massage. The staff at this welcoming oasis seems to strike a similar balance in all their treatments, whether they’re doling out a revitalizing facial, restorative body treatment, or a full-body massage that relaxes the muscles before they become too tight to flex for surveillance cameras.
The aestheticians at Yodi Threading Spa keep their spa menu simple. They focus on threading, an ancient hair-removal technique in which a cotton thread rolls and twists over the skin, lifting away hairs in straight, precise lines. For other regions, waxing treatments quickly and ruthlessly exterminate unwanted hair. The staffers also pretty up topside skin with facials and microdermabrasion. While in the hot seat, clients can send their mind wandering while watching shows on a flat-screen TV or hypnotizing themselves in the tall mirrors in front of each seat.
Wax & Tan—it's not just the business name, but a straightforward description of what you do while there. A nearly full-body selection of waxing services for men and women includes everything from the forehead to the toes, and all treatments are performed with 100% natural hard wax. Spray tans can be applied to the face, half body, or full body, using a paraben-free solution that is sugar-based and quick-drying—like the world's best beach towel.
