Candy Coat Nail Boutique's techs aim to provide a high-quality nail spa experience, making fingernails and toenails look almost good enough to eat after coats of pretty polish from brands such as Essie, Zoya, and OPI, and gem appliqués. Softening caviar scrub infused with a sensual pheromone can also be rubbed into skin. Complimentary glasses of wine or champagne help guests sink into relaxation during their treatments.
The nail technicians at Monaco Nails & Spa keep hands and feet looking vibrant with a range of lavish nail services. Manicures and pedicures include not just a trim and a coat of polish, but a massage, conditioning, and hot towels to pamper the skin as well as the nails. Other services include facials, waxing, and acrylic-nail enhancements.
Just as its name promises, Xtension Xpress is dedicated to quickly giving guests longer, fuller locks. After purchasing top-quality hair in-store or turning locks they brought with them, patrons sit back as double-track installation weaves extra strands into hair. The salon's custom extension procedure outfits customers with their extensions as quickly and efficiently as possible, like April Fool's day at the DMV. Other coiffure-boosting services include feather extensions, perms, and trims that clean up 'dos.
Upon entering Robar Beauty Salon & Spa, a visitor might first notice the recently remodeled interior, splashes of canary yellow or vibrant fuchsia, or the smell of organic hair products wafting through the air. But owner William Robar—an industry veteran of almost 40 years—remembers his salad days in less prosperous locations. His first salon "was so busy I didn't know where to put the people!" he laughs, recalling its cramped layout. His clientele ranged from street criminals to drug dealers. "In those days it was wild. Every walk of life came into my salon."
Now a sought-after celebrity stylist, William has clipped and styled famous hair for Frank Sinatra, Barbara Walters, and President Bill Clinton, who needed a trim before delivering a presidential speech. Inside his upscale salon, William and his team of certified stylists use their fashion instincts and mastery of the sibilant scissor language to team up with shears and craft elegant coifs for men, women, and children.
The cadre of bilingual beauty professionals at Aventura Surgery Center & Med Spa focus on delivering tranquility almost as much as beauty. Massaging pedicure chairs, aromatherapy oils, and paraffin dips can enhance mani-pedis, and facials include a massage for the neck, shoulders, and hands. Skincare salves rely mainly on botanical ingredients, such as the aloe vera, papaya, and green-tea extracts that power peels. All this hands-on attention doesn't make the spa any less attuned to emerging technologies: for instance, the QuickSlim Lipo system uses laser light to shrink fat cells while delivering all the health benefits of a planetarium show, and an LED facial treatment destroys surface bacteria and prompts collagen growth.
