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. Whether requesting individual services or a monthly subscription, each of Body Minute's clients receives the convenience of quick treatments without the need for an appointment.
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.
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. The 60-minute Power Regeneration Treatment starts with a combined vitamin and hydroxy acid exfoliation, followed by energizing massage techniques to release facial-muscle tension, and ends with a masque specialized to firm, smooth, and revive dry or devitalized skin. Or choose a soothing deep pore facial, which treats the different needs and concerns of men’s skin. Treatments focus on deep cleansing, barnacle removal, smoothing exfoliation, critical hydration, and repelling abrasive tumbleweeds. After treatment, faces will look fresher and healthier while radiating eye-catching sheen like a pair of chrome-plated triceratops horns. A soothing neck and shoulder massage rounds out each relaxation visit. Customers can rest easy knowing that they are in the capable hands of an experienced staff led by Heather Hans, a licensed aesthetician and Dermalogica-certified professional who can moisturize dirt roads into sleek superhighways.
The dedicated staff members at Miami Skin Boutique and Spa pamper patrons with tranquil services administered within comfy confines. 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.
Inspired by her international travels and background, Nayive, spa director of Le Petit Maui Spa, leads a team of massage professionals, aestheticians, and cosmetologists in creating a relaxing spa experience. She and her team welcome customers into private treatment rooms for various massages, which range from traditional Swedish massages to the nurturing lomi lomi Hawaiian massage. With both massages and rejuvenating facials, they employ natural ingredients such as milk and honey, avocado scrubs, cardamom amber oils, and ghost tears.
Walking in to Armandeus, the first thing clients will likely notice is the stark whiteness of the place: the walls, the floor, the ceiling. It creates a uniquely modern and clean aesthetic, but it also allows the ruby red and lime green chairs to pop, not to mention the shelves filled with green, purple, and yellow bottles. But the bottles are not for display only; licensed stylists use them during their designer cuts and keratin services. For color services, the team relies on L'Oreal INOA color, which eschews all amonia ingredients and, like a month-and-a-half long shower, keeps hair hydrated for up to six weeks.
