For Amanda Gionet, the love for hairstyling runs the family. As a third-generation mane tamer, Amanda has expanded on her family's profession by leading a team of like-minded industry artists, each possessing unique beauty specialties. Her stylists pamper patrons from head to toe—or more accurately, from freshly cropped locks to perfectly polished piggies—with the many services on A. Salon's menu. Services range from color and texturizing treatments to quick facial waxing sessions that make it easier to adhere novelty mustaches to one's face.
Although aesthetician Julie MacMillan graduated among the top five students in her aesthetics program, she keeps her homey beauty outfit, Skin Care By Jewls, free of pretensions. Jewls is MacMillan's nickname and preferred moniker, and the tag reflects her friendly, easygoing attitude. During spa services she plays dreamy, tranquil music to compliment the low, cozy lighting.
Jewls became a board-certified permanent-makeup artist in 2008, building on the training she received in Arizona, where she exceeded 800 hours of education?well beyond Florida's requirements of 260 hours and a papier-m?ch? mockup of a pore. She reaches for products from Rhonda Allison and lavender wax imported from Italy to create radiant, smooth skin.
7e Fit Spa's name makes a lot of sense, once it's broken down. Seven represents a universal number that represents the seven body chakras and colors of the rainbow; "e" stands for the seven essential elements of wellness (a healthy lifestyle, inner peace, and positive energy, to name a few). Fitting, considering the spa's mission is to inspire a healthy and mindful lifestyle?with the help of some natural and scientific therapies, of course. These therapies and treatments target the face as well as the body, from microcurrent facials and microdermabrasion to body contouring treatments and LED light therapy.
Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services. Soothing massages employ a collection of kneads, strokes, and manipulations to reduce tension and disentangle body knots, with luxurious add-ons such as paraffin treatments and aromatherapy. The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.
The Bronzing Bar Tanning Salon forgoes traditional, sun-drawn tanning techniques with a variety of UV tanning beds and eco-friendly spray-tan services that generate natural-looking hues. One month of unlimited UV tanning grants visitors unfettered access to intermediate 4,000 tanning beds, in which they can enliven their complexions in 20-minute bronzing sessions with optional lamps for the delicate skin on the face and dorsal fin. Customers can eschew UV wavelengths with two Norvell organic spray tans, which gift bodies with a copper glow thanks to a formulated solution of natural ingredients and eco-certified DHA. Each organic spray tan coats the upper layer of skin and reacts with epidermal proteins to produce a tan that lasts for six to seven days. The Bronzing Bar recommends that clients arrive exfoliated, showered, and shaven, as well as free of any makeup or frowny clown masks.
