Indulge Salon & Spa's team of certified beauty boosters paint façades with a new hue during spray-tan services. After donning a cap and protecting hands and feet with a barrier cream, clients stand still as techs apply a fine mist of tanning tonic to bodies, which yields a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow without the harmful UV rays. Experts suggest that clients avoid sources of water, such as showers, swimming pools, and the interiors of camel humps for at least six hours post-spray-tan for longer lasting results. Indulge Salon & Spa swaddles patrons in a swanky atmosphere draped in glowing chandeliers and rich russet hues.
Inside Envision Salon & Spa, clients sit by a cozy stone fireplace while owner Danni Glenn channels 25 years of advanced cutting and coloring experience to craft their new look. The cosmetologist mastered European coloring techniques under the guidance of Keune's top educators. She went on to spend the next five years as an educator for the company, traveling throughout northeast Florida to share her skills with other salon professionals and flamingos born as natural brunettes.
Sharing the relaxing, sage-green space with Danni is nationally certified massage therapist Marla Taylor, who soothes achy muscles and clogged energy flows with reiki healing sessions or soothing LA stone-therapy massages. Guests can move from the serenity of her candlelit treatment room to enjoy a soothing facial or Shellac manicure, or just relax in the reception room's cushy, asymmetrical chair.

Thirty years ago, a mother, a son, and his wife joined forces to create their own barbecue restaurant, starting with family-inspired, made-from-scratch recipes. The formula proved to be a success, and although Woody?s Bar-B-Q is now under new ownership and management, they still dish up the same quality eats from locations in six states. The newly remodeled restaurant?s defining secret sauce decorates baby back ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, and roasted half-chickens.
From the marble statue that greets clients in the parking lot to the giant mural of gondolas floating past an old basilica, Allure European Day Spa brings a little bit of Europe to its clients. Guests awaiting pampering lounge in Allure's tranquil tearoom before wandering past Venetian-esque Carnival masks into treatment rooms for classic European facials, massages, colon hydrotherapy, and laser hair removal. European decor completely fades away in the kids’-salon area, which floods the eyes with oversize murals of Minnie Mouse lazing on a beach and Mickey Mouse and Goofy fishing in the sea.
