"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.
As a little girl in Miami, Fabiana would watch in awe as her mother––a 30-year veteran of the beauty industry––combed, curled, and coifed simple strands into stunning works of art. Unable to deny her passion for hair in any language––she's fluent in English, Portuguese, and Spanish––Fabiana she instead decided to embrace her innate talent and follow in her mother's footsteps, a path that would ultimately lead her to Dallas and a gig inside the Aveda-focused State-Thomas Salon. There, she helps heads find the dimensional shine or texture they've always dreamed of with services that range from balayage color to formaldehyde-free Pravana smooth-out treatments. To ensure faces look fresh from top to chin, she also offers waxing for the eyebrows and upper lip and teeth-whitening treatments that help oust stains caused by coffee or a diet rich in grass clippings.
Between a carmine screen and a glossy wood desk, a receptionist welcomes clients to A La Mode Beauty Salon, which polishes appearances from head to toe. Excited girls and women chatter in the background as stylists twirl, pin, and spray their hair in preparation for quinceañeras and weddings. Meanwhile, nail technicians massage feet, paint fingernails with shellac polish, and apply acrylic nails. Expressions shine after cleansing, balancing facials, which can be paired with waxing or permanent makeup to add an extra air of elegance to clients' features.
At Leonarda Lugo Beauty Services Salon, Leonarda Lugo's services have clients covered from head to toe. She may meticulously apply makeup, decorate digits with DND or chip-resistant Gelish polish, and snip strands into fashionable 'dos. Although Leonarda is happy to administer most any beauty service, she specializes in quickly cleansing complexions with mini facials and erasing lingering glitter makeup from New Year's Eve 2011.
The stylists at Evolution Beauty Salon can do it all. They flow effortlessly from face-flattering haircuts to relaxing pedicures to detoxifying body treatments. They whisk away unwanted hair with wax, and clear the back of oil buildup with back treatments.
Surrounded by flowers and seated in cozy red spa chairs, Dominican Spa & Salon's guests find themselves relaxing even as seasoned nail and hair stylists buzz around them. The nail techs pamper fingers and toes with manicures and pedicures, using no-chip Shellac polish for long-lasting color or regular veneer polish for scarecrow touchups. Hair experts snip and style locks during haircuts, or they revamp locks with human-hair extensions. Smooth skin and glowing faces complement new hairdos after waxing treatments and facials.
