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.
At Go Bare! a team of veteran aestheticians elevate their range of traditional spa and waxing services with a carefully curated collection of skincare products made both locally and around the globe. Their Belgian waxes are triple-filtered and infused with zinc and titanium dioxide to minimize redness after hair-removal sessions. For skin nourishment, aestheticians use a physician-developed line of epidermal elixirs hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, where they're made with vitamins and antioxidants. Locally made creams, meanwhile, boast 100% organic blends of mint and chocolate, or vanilla and honey, and are painted across freshly waxed skinscapes to soothe the aches that follow follicular uprooting.
Skin Science Institute's expert physicians and technicians diminish epidermal blemishes all across the body with an array of skincare services. The experts freshen facescapes with facials, peels, and microdermabrasion. They also indulge clients with sundry pampering services, including hot-stone massages and bridal beauty packages. Specializing in laser technology and advanced medical skincare, Skin Science Institute's staff sculpts sleek new physiques with cold-laser technology and revivifies aging faces with a gauntlet of blemish-fighting lasers to diminish the appearance of cellulite, wrinkles, and acne.
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.
After nearly 20 years of experience as a medical aesthetician and laser specialist, Designer Skin of the Palm Beaches owner Karin Ellis left her post working alongside trusted plastic surgeons to open up her own skin boutique. Today she pays forward everything she's learned to her clients, who reap the benefits of her expertise and that of her professional team. Together, the aestheticians help their clients' skin appear smoother and tighter, diminishing fine lines without surgery. In its place, they use laser technology to erase sunspots and old scars, or chemical peels to reveal younger-looking skin.
