Expert aesthetician Samiha, who has three decades of hair removal experience, relieves bodies of unneeded fleece with ancient, all natural methods used in Eastern countries. Twisting pure cotton thread across the surface of the skin, Samiha ousts hair at the follicle and leaves brows cleaner and more sculpted than the power-washed abs of Michelangelo's David. In contrast to other common hair removal techniques, the precise execution of threading prevents in-grown hairs and irritation. Guests can maintain unruly nether-feathers with a Brazilian sugaring treatment that relies on a chilled concoction of organic sugar to gently evict down-there hairs without swelling and redness.
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.
Head to Toe Salon & Spa is North Palm Beach Gardens' one-stop beauty shop?a place where clients can get a waxing treatment, a lash extension, and lash tint on the same trip. This convenience alone is enough to earn the spa a dedicated following; if you need more convincing, look no further than advanced treatments such as microcurrent facials and diamond microdermabrasions that use tiny abrasives to clear away dead skin cells.
The many statues of the Buddha that decorate George Ryan Salon should clue customers into the fact that this isn’t just a hairstyling business. Of course, the staff here do cut hair and make it smoother with keratin treatments. But by emphasizing inner calmness and reflection, the salon helps clients relax and take a break from everyday stresses. After complementing their natural beauty with sun-kissed highlights or a tidy manicure, clients can take home a soy-based candle that matches their zodiac sign or a book on spirituality to bring that newfound peace home.
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.
Inside Tranquil Moments, clients can kick back as they receive a variety of beauty services, ranging from waxing treatments to eyelash extensions. Soothing facials refresh skin and work to erase wrinkles, and manicures and pedicures keep fingers and toes in tip-top condition.
