Felicia Benson, Polo Salon & Spa's principle stylist and colorist, blends more than 20 years of salon experience into her professionalism and attention to detail. Her salon's trained staff wields an arsenal of L'Oréal Professionnel hair colors as well as the new L'Oréal INOA, a non-ammonia product available exclusively at certified salons. In addition to color, the staff members help clients reimagine their looks with precision cuts for men, women, and children, anti-aging facials, and artificial and natural nail services.
The scents of freshly baked pastries in the morning and the aroma of hors d'oeuvres in the evening waft through the salon, and complimentary beverages such as wine further please the senses, unlike if humans could smell the scent of losing their keys.

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.
Since Suzi Mari DeMaio couldn't pack New York City in a suitcase when she moved to Florida, she did the next best thing: she brought The Big Apple's sought-after salon experience to her new home. Since then, the veteran stylist has been pampering her clients with high-quality products from TIGI, Great Lengths, and Thicken It Studios, which she and her staff use when designing on-trend cuts, coloring services, and hair extensions. And they don't stop with hair. They also spruce up nails with mani-pedis and sell soy candles that have been featured on Oprah.
