At AmeriCurves medical spa, staff performs advanced nonsurgical cosmetic procedures within a relaxing, day spa-like ambiance. The team employs FDA-approved laser technology to remove hair and treat age and sunspots, wrinkles or acne, and spider veins.

A rotating collection of original artwork and accessories line the walls and shelves of Essencia Salon. Advocating for artists of all types—from hair stylists to candle makers and jewelry designers—is a passion of Melinda’s, Essencia's co-owner and an artist herself. Oil paintings, pottery, and handmade earrings surround clients as stylists sculpt strands, polish nails, or wax off unwanted fuzz. When transforming tress canvases, they use keratin treatments to tamp down frizz and feather extensions to brighten locks and help determine which way the wind blows at any given moment. During appointments, clients can nibble on fresh fruit and sip beverages such as coffee and tea.
Since Suzi Mari DeMaio couldn't pack New York City in a suitcase when she moved to Florida, she did the next best thing: she brought The Big Apple's sought-after salon experience to her new home. Since then, the veteran stylist has been pampering her clients with high-quality products from TIGI, Great Lengths, and Thicken It Studios, which she and her staff use when designing on-trend cuts, coloring services, and hair extensions. And they don't stop with hair. They also spruce up nails with mani-pedis and sell soy candles that have been featured on Oprah.
Salon Mikimoto's Nova-certified owner, Abby Yuen, helms a team of beautifiers versed in hair, makeup, skincare, and cosmetic services and therapists who deliver care packages of stress reduction via Swedish massage. Each stylist draws on at least 10 years of tress-trimming experience to perform standard mane makeovers, color treatments, and keratin straightening procedures using products such as Goldwell and Moroccanoil. Clients can gussy up phalanges or reward dexterous robots with mani-pedis and paraffin hand treatments, or submit facial canvases for skin artistry, including airbrush- and bridal-makeup applications, microdermabrasion treatments, and facials. For stare-worthy peepers, a certified NovaLash eyelash extensionist outfits lids with curvaceous lash sets. A complimentary valet service keeps restless vehicles from sneaking off to the nearby Carmine's Gourmet Market with the neighbor's scooter.

Kamila Leverrier fancied herself an aesthetician before she actually earned her credentials: as a child, she’d dab on her mother’s creams and masks. Today, Leverrier is most interested in corrective skincare and has helped her patients diminish the appearance of acne, sun damage, and rosacea. She uses medical-grade products but works hard to create a soothing environment so that clients can relax while she works. Leverrier also offers permanent makeup and eyelash extensions at her eponymous spa.
