Just because a tan is fake doesn't mean it has to be unnatural. At Nana-Bella Nail and Beauty Lounge, technicians use an organic solution to bronze bodies. In addition to their traditional spray tan, they offer an express treatment—ideal for last-minute occasions as it dries in just one to three hours—and an Island tan that's designed to imbue a darker glow. Optional shimmer shots infuse the tanning solution with a sparkle that's more attractive than wearing a suit made from skinned disco balls. Aestheticians also accentuate skin with waxing services; the full-body selection includes legs, bikini, chest, and underarms.

The technician's at B's Laser boast certifications and ample skills with their tools, but they take the most pride in their customer service. "[We] listen to [clients] and help them with any questions regarding the service," says the owner. This exchange involves examining a potential patient's medical history, determining their goals for certain areas of their body, and putting together a recommended course of treatment. Only then do the staffers break out their lasers and begin permanently reducing unwanted hair, presumably softly whispering, "Pew, pew, pew!" with each zap.
At L&G Nails and Skincare, a staff of eminently experienced cosmetologists and estheticians beautify nails and skin with a wide range of spa services. Cosmetic artists prepare faces for special events with makeup treatments, and nail and skin specialists soothe and polish faces and hands with manicures, peels, and facials.
Elite Full Spa's acne facial always improves skin clarity, combats blemishes, and minimizes inflammation—but never in exactly the same way. The spa specializes in custom blended treatments, crafted from essential oils and plant extracts to suit each client's skin type. This means no formula is sacred. The team can just as easily tweak the facial's acne-medicated cleanser or its sulfur mask to get the best results. Similarly, they can customize one of their other skincare services, from the European-style facial to the cranberry and pomegranate facial with a complimentary tiny umbrella.
Their spa's salon services are equally tailored to the recipient, regardless of whether stylists are snipping locks into custom shapes or stripping away unwanted stubble with waxing and threading. And to round out the service menu, manicures and pedicures offer options ranging from traditional and shellac polishes to artificial silk wrap nails, a more flexible, natural-looking take on traditional acrylics.
De Lis Salon & Spa's staff stands unified in their belief that beauty is an art that relies on vision, detail, creativity, and technique. To that end, they take painstaking care with all of their services. Take Erick, the salon's master colorist and color correction specialist; he approaches his craft by combining his client's needs with his own vision, thereby creating a look that's both customized and universal, modern and timeless. That's how it goes with all the professionals here—the hairstylists, skincare specialists, and eyelash technicians. They see their work as a collaboration with the client, and combine artful sensibilities with clinical technique to turn out hairdos that reflect each person's own character and the height of their ceilings. The space itself is at once warm and upscale: burnt orange walls and polished hardwood floors with jet-black styling stations interspersed throughout, and fresh flowers breathing life into the space. De Lis's staff favors products from respected brands such as Moroccanoil, Saryna Key, and L'Oréal.
Owner Alta Garcia Fernandez, an internationally trained beautifier, helms a team of hairstylists, aestheticians, nail technicians, and massage therapists at Rizos Spa. Spa services, which include facials, sauna sessions, and detox treatments, simultaneously relax and beautify their recipients. The salon space at Rizos houses stylists who make hair look so good that clients completely forget why they ever walked around for eight months wearing foam mascot heads. In addition to a skilled team and a soothing, earth-toned atmosphere, staff members use carefully selected products that contain plant extracts, fruit acids, enzymes, and aromatherapy oils, all of which naturally contribute to the radiant calm Alta and her team seek to inspire.
