Originally hailing from the Dominican Republic, Envy Me Hair Salon owner Clara Anglero is as fluent in African American hair and straightening treatments as she is in the Spanish language. Certified in both Japanese perms and the Brazilian keratin smoothing system, Clara also helps hair relax with hot-oil treatments and deep conditioners, and stylist Sandy doles out corrective color and gives texture to her specialty short cuts. Together, the stylish duo helps hair of all types and lengths look healthier, while also extending a transformative touch to hands and feet with paraffin-rich mani-pedis or nail replacements for acrylics that suddenly quit.
At Awesome Blossom Beauty Salon, a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, the stylists beautify clients with advanced coloring and styling techniques. Along with cuts and color, they provide deep-conditioning treatments, braids and extensions, and Awapuhi KeraTriplex damage-repair treatments. They also offer body-contouring wraps, which tighten and tone in a mere 45 minutes—the same amount of time often spent hiding under a desk in an effort to convince coworkers you went to the gym.
The owners and barbers at Real Barber Shop, Pablo Miranda and Juan Mojica, believe that the key to their 15 years of barbershop success has been a good reputation and word-of-mouth advertising. Old-fashioned straight-razor shaves, meticulous attention to detail during haircuts, and plenty of individual attention bring clients back to this classic barbershop.
Polish Nail Bar is Orlando's best "Loft Style" Nail Bar. With a full menu of hand and foot treaments including gel, gelish and shellac options.
The back of the house features a "blow-Out Bar" providing wash, blow-dry/flat-iron and styling as well as waxing services.
The massage therapists at Healthy Body Massage strive to help clients better understand their bodies both mentally and physically. They work to promote a sense of wholeness and self-awareness, employing specialized modalities depending on each visitor’s particular needs. Swedish and lomi-lomi techniques may foster a deep sense of relaxation, and neuromuscular therapy and lymphatic drainage aim to encourage the body’s natural healing process. During some treatments, the staff rubs skin with moisturizing salves mixed in-house from organic coconut oils. Massage isn’t the studio’s only soothing service: the staff also pampers its clients with other spa treatments. Facials can incorporate everything from antioxidant-rich serums to scented essential oils, and body scrubs use Dead Sea salts or organic brown sugar to gently exfoliate the skin. To help firm and tone torsos, the staff also applies wraps of natural, mineral-rich seaweed harvested from the dwelling-places of the world’s sveltest manatees.
