Fabian Lopez completed his salon training in Buenos Aires before carrying his expertise with him to Miami, where he launched Cabellos Salon with an international team of stylists, waxing specialists, and nail technicians, whom he believes represent the melting-pot character of the city. With an arsenal of products from MoroccanOil, Alfaparf, and Redken, the stylists cut, color, and condition locks to suit each client's lifestyle and hair type. Hair extensions add naturalistic volume and length, and Featherlocks feather extensions deliver pops of color, texture, and confidence to birds with receding hairlines. Inside the waiting area, a red leather couch situates clients beside a coffee table topped with fresh flowers and glossy magazines. Large, sparkly chandeliers add luminescence to the casual scene, and a nearby armchair printed with a portrait of Audrey Hepburn brings a subtle sense of Old Hollywood glamour.
Body Minute's focus on catering to women with busy lifestyles propelled its skin-care methods into more than 350 beauty centers across Europe—and then, across the pond.

To help clients achieve the results of their treatments at home, Body Minute carries its own line of paraben-free, Swiss-made beauty products.
With free WiFi, three flat-screen TVs, and surround-sound music, Next Level Barbershop provides home-like comforts amidst tendril-taming professionalism.

Shampoo and conditioner ($15) further discipline wild manes, imbuing pleasant texture and subtle scents without completely overriding natural notes of motorcycle grease. Appointments can be scheduled online.
Though most people accept the fact that skin will be red and irritated after waxing, the owners of The Green Wax decided to be a little kinder to their clients. They solely rely on natural green wax that they peel off without the use of abrasive strips, and the wax’s natural ingredients soothe skin. The formula is especially beneficial to those with sensitive skin, giving them an alternative way to achieve smooth legs and sculpted brows without leaning over carefully placed matches.
At Rescue Skin Care Miami, visitors can acquire top-notch beautification services with high-quality skincare products. Each visitor will have the option of a Power Regeneration Treatment or a men's deep pore facial with neck and shoulder massage.

Thirty-minute mini massages soothe stressed-out backs with gentle kneading and lullabies delivered through fingertips via Morse code. The Sonya Dakar boot-camp facial harnesses handpicked products from the renowned skincare expert to invigorate visages with four levels of exfoliation. Wielding natural ingredients including pumpkin enzymes and green tea, aestheticians polish faces with steam, microdermabrasion, and a seaweed repair serum derived from kelp-based tool belts. The intraceutical oxygen-infusion facial treats sensitive countenances with vitamins, hyaluronic acid, and therapeutic-grade hyperbaric oxygen pressure. Sips of effervescent champagne and bites of fresh fruit enhance the experience.
Hashem Salon’s nail technicians pamper frazzled hands and overworked feet with soothing nail services. Fingers and toes skinny-dip in warm baths during the 60-minute standard mani-pedi before aestheticians buff cuticles and reign in irresponsible hangnails with stern admonishments to behave. After a hand-and-foot massage soothes stressed-out ligaments, technicians apply pigmentation to nails, matching fingers and toes to their owner’s outfit, eye color, or competitive-hide-and-seek team jersey.
