Beauty Glam'z doesn't just beautify its clients?it also helps clients learn the secrets behind salon services. That way, they can make informed decisions about the treatments they do themselves or receive from a trained aesthetician. Mobile spa parties and workshops such as an eyelash-extension seminar help customers see what the beauty industry is all about. On a typical day, though, the Beauty Glam'z staff sticks to serving up an array of salon treatments like facials, mani-pedis, waxing, tanning, and makeup artistry.
The team at Garden General Services beckons passersby onto the path toward overall wellness paved by physical therapy, spa services, and cosmetic treatments. Licensed therapists help clients overcome the pain and discomfort of injury through rehabilitative sessions, and alleviate chronic tension and deep muscle aches with therapeutic and relaxation massages. The center's Botox and Restylane dermal fillers turn back the clock to a time when faces were still smooth, wrinkle-free, and had airplane spoons flying toward them. Experienced aestheticians also strive to improve visitors' self-confidence through skin-tightening radio-frequency treatments and advice on how to reduce acne.
Josue Romero first whipped out a pair of shears in his backyard at the age of 13. He wasn't performing typical backyard landscaping, though; instead, he was using scissors to clip and trim hair. His work has paid off, as he's moved from backyard barber to owner of Clippers, Trimmers, and Shears. With the help of his staff—who he personally trained—Josue provides haircuts, hot towel shaves, and custom designs to regular customers, as well as to more high-profile clientele including local radio hosts and DJs and even Pit Bull.
The long, wooden bar is lit by ornate stained-glass lamps illuminating hand-painted scenes of Cuba inlaid on its sides. It's a fitting display for the Cuba Ocho Art and Research Center, where social interaction and art are the main draws. At its heart, the center is a cultural hub for artists, actors, yodelers, and musicians to display their talents. But that doesn't mean history takes a back seat, either. Many artists' from 1850 to 1958 are on display as well, and the center regularly sponsors art auctions and fairs with a focus on promoting Cuban artists.
On Friday and Saturday nights, live bands fill the air with sultry and energetic music from a variety of local groups such as Orquesta Seleccion Latina, Fiera Mia, and Main Street. A light tapas menu entices diners to taste a variety of the kitchen's small plates that might feature marinated olives, mango salsa, mixed cheeses, or cured meats.
Laura Nails & Spa’s technicians make over rugged talons into pretty paws during Shellac manicures, and de-fur physiques during waxing services. A 30-minute Shellac mani cleans up cuticles and shapes finger headboards before a three-step polish process sheathes nail beds in a base, polish, and top coat. Though Shellac solutions require no dry time, a quick stint under a UV lamp’s warm glow helps seal in colorful coverings for a flawless finish that resists chips and cracks for up to two weeks. During waxing sessions, trained staffers abolish fuzz from 11 waxing areas, metamorphosizing caterpillary eyebrows ($15), de-fuzzing upper lips ($15), or restoring full legs to a state of smoothness akin to Barry White's vocal cords ($45).
