As co-owners of Trend Studios Orlando, Matthew Bengston and Anthony Cortes have cultivated a business that reflects their own areas of expertise. Matthew brings his skills as a stylist to the hair salon, where he and his team cut men’s and women’s hair, add highlights, and lengthen locks with extensions. For his part, Anthony draws on his talents as a teeth-whitening and airbrush-tanning specialist to oversee those branches of the studio. Both Matthew and Anthony go out of their way to ensure a comfortable experience for clients: Anthony’s airbrush tans, for example, employ an Evolv. Sidekick tanning system that warms up its tanning solution before gently misting skin. For the spa services in which they do not specialize, Matthew and Anthony employ a knowledgeable staff that performs massages, waxing treatments, and a cappella renditions of the spa’s relaxing soundtrack.
At Integrative Physical Medicine, spinal treatments benefit not from the wisdom of one doctor, but from the whole chiropractic team's collective expertise.

Led by hairstylist and fashion designer Takayah Norris, the staff at Royalty Hair Palace Salon & Boutique aims to live up to their name, treating all of their clients like queens. They achieve this by approaching beauty from multiple angles: they sculpt stunning hairstyles, professionally apply make-up, summon fresh layers of skin with facials, and stock the racks of their boutique with custom-made clothes and accessories. Therapists also perform deep-tissue, Swedish, sports, shiatsu, and reflexology massages to soothe away any lingering stress spawned from choosing a hair color that best compliments your favorite pair of Groucho glasses.
A stint at Venchi Day Spa is like a retreat to a country manor. Natural light slips through royal red curtains onto Victorian chairs and carved wooden tables. Candelabra-style sconces also provide ample illumination, which cascades across aestheticians administering facials and decorating nails with long-lasting shellac polish. They work beneath shelves that also bear wax for removing unwanted hair. The spa even employs a licensed massage therapist, whose soothing bodywork offers an escape from the daily stress of working in an office or going around town to flip over pennies that don’t have the lucky side up.
