Robin Chadwick and the stylists at Chadwick Hair Company have the power to make hair shorter, or longer and fuller. Along with haircuts and micro-fusion hair extensions, stylists use their talents to add dimension with foil highlights, and straighten and smoothen wayward curls with Brazilian straightening treatments. They also draw attention to eyes with eyelash extensions.
At the age of 18, Skin N Beyond owner and licensed aesthetician Suzanne Turi traded her pageant gowns for a makeup brush, moving to Hollywood to attend the Joe Blasco makeup school. After graduation, she found herself smack in the middle of major happenings, beautifying faces at events such as the Rose Bowl, the Oscars, and Morgan Freeman's fantasy baseball draft. Armed with know-how gleaned from The Dermal Institute in Manhattan and the Galen Institute School of Massage Therapy in Connecticut, she recruited a team of staffers versed and certified in multiple cosmetic disciplines to help her establish Skin N Beyond. That multifaceted expertise shows through today; as clients sip wine and listen to pop hits in the spa's trendy boutique-like lounge, team members execute beautification rituals ranging from manicures and seaweed gel masks to eyelash extensions, microdermabrasion, and medical-grade facial peels.
A waterfall babbles over stones and splashes plants outside. Inside the themed private rooms set the scene for massage and holistic therapies. Touch of Class Day Spa's serene decor and skilled technicians have caught the eyes of many. Even former Coral Springs mayor Scott Brook praises the place, echoing the state emperor in saying, "I love coming to Touch of Class. I love everything about the place from the moment I walk in: The fragrance is wonderful, the service is excellent."
The spa specializes in couples massage, though it also offers custom and clinical facials, body wraps and scrubs, and waxing. Duos can settle down for a side-by-side massage in the garden-themed couples room or step into the second floor's Moroccan couples room, where swaths of vivid fabric billow out from the ceiling. Indian, Hawaiian, Japanese, and Thai treatment rooms also swaddle clients in exotic patterns and ambiances.
Royal Treatment Skin Care and Beauty?s owner, Samantha Kerr, doesn't need curtains or wall partitions to ensure her guests? privacy. Her one client at a time philosophy calls for each guest to receive the dedicated attention of an aesthetician undistracted by other customers tapping their feet in the lobby or clambering through the air ducts.
This allows Kerr and her team to do what they do best: cleanse, exfoliate, and extract toxins from the skin. The Royal Treatment skin care office provides a wide selection of facials that target specific skin conditions. Their popular oxygen facial is great for clients who want an instant makeover. They also offer body-smoothing, makeup, eyelash extensions, and waxing treatments. When she's not engaged in one-on-one consultations with her clients, Kerr keeps busy by hosting interactive training workshops in various beauty treatments.
Owner Dori Mirkow left her job in the accounting world to build clients' confidence instead of their bank accounts. Before opening Goddess Sanctuary, she went back to school and became a licensed aesthetician. She uses her knowledge to deep-clean pores and exfoliate skin during facials, which can be enhanced with specialty masks, paraffin dips, and eye masks. She wraps clients in soothing herbs and minerals, including sea algae, sea clay, or cocoa powder, and bronzes pallid skin with a self-tanning cream that absorbs into freshly exfoliated skin. No matter the service, Mirkow includes reiki, reflexology, and aromatherapy in each one without charging you extra or demanding a map to your coin collection.
Marilyn Fontalvo stands by each and every one of her beauty services. The licensed hairstylist and aesthetician felt comfortable lending her own name to her studio, and it's easy to see why. She hails from Colombia, a country where stylists take uncommon pride in delivering perfect results and keeping with the latest trends. Marilyn and fellow stylist Juana Maria Alcocer—also a Colombian native—make their clients feel at home as they craft flattering hairdos with highlights, extensions, and keratin smoothing treatments. Their services extend beyond the scalp and include facials, waxing, and mani-pedis.
