Hands play an essential part in interpersonal communication. But, if hands themselves could talk, they might request a little time off. At Growing Hands Salon & Spa, lead stylist and nail technician Maureen schedules these mini-vacations for hands. During manicures, her technicians splash nails with the vibrant colors of OPI and China Glaze or deliver long-lasting coverage with hardy Shellac polish. Aided by Affirm Keracare and Moroccanoil products, stylists also care for that other kind of keratin with haircuts and treatments designed to leave manes stronger, longer, and healthier. The team also augments 'dos the old-fashioned way, prepping clients for proms, weddings, and special occasions with updos and extensions. No matter what pampering services clients choose, they can extend its effects at home with the help of the salon's boutique's-worth of pro-grade products.
At Shine Salon and Spa, stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists pamper clients with services fueled by products from Biolage, Matrix, and Joico. Whether waxing away bristle or straightening tresses with Brazilian keratin treatments, the salon team finds the products best suited to each client's hair and skin. The team also furbishes nails with OPI lacquers, camouflages faces from predatory fish with seaweed masks, and dissolves stress with therapeutic massages seven days a week.

With an eye toward results, owner Gina and her staff at Silky Skin use a discerning eye when choosing which products they use during their skin treatments. It's no surprise, then, that in order to treat acne, signs of aging, cellulite, or sun damage, they combine their own custom-blended solutions with noninvasive technology, such as ultrasonic cavitation and LipoLaser. As these treatments take place, along with seven facials and waxing of 17 body areas, tranquil music permeates the space to create a soothing ambiance.
The treatments offered at Bio Beauty Skincare & Waxing Center rejuvenate bodies and faces using natural elements and modern med-spa technology. Active enzymes brighten skin during chemical peels, and organic hard waxes whisk away unwanted hair from faces and physiques. Radio-frequency facials help tighten lax skin, whereas ultrasonic-cavitation treatments target bodies' stubborn fat deposits. The center also offers body treatments, including needleless acupuncture; backials, facials for clients' backs; and stackials, facials for clients' stovepipe hats.
Cosmetologists, nail technicians, and barbers alike graduate from Margate School of Beauty armed with job market-ready backgrounds in art, fashion, and technical design. First, though, senior students gear up to matriculate with hands-on experience in the school’s salon and spa. They can shape and color locks, braid them into cornrows, or smooth textured strands. Beyond hair services, they brighten nails with polish and acrylics, and tend visages with facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion, which exfoliates more effectively than demolishing a sandcastle with your face.
