1604 Day Spa and Salon’s staff of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians fight the effects of stress and aging with nourishing facials and relaxing messages. In a warm, private room, back pain succumbs to the healing hands of a skilled masseuse who either soothes away stress with Swedish massage or employs deep-tissue techniques to evict hunkered-down strains more quickly than a long and drawn-out civil suit. Alternatively, seasoned aestheticians tailor an Aveda Elemental Nature facial to fit the client’s skin type, pore-ailments, and full-body bear suit, freshening and smoothing faces with naturally derived Aveda products.
The staff members at Suntanz Serenity Salon unite their combined 75 years of experience to beautify clients from head to shoe. They accomplish this by way of haircare, nailcare, waxing, and tanning services. The team carefully monitors bronzing beds to ensure safe and hygienic tanning sessions far more practical than taping arms with the fuzz from Bert and Ernie dolls. The staff also pampers and revivifies visages by rendering facials and makeup services.
The team at Nails 111 believes in "good, clean fun," combining a health-conscious philosophy with a charming, shabby-chic ambiance. Antique-style tables and chairs, chandeliers, and lilac walls create an 18th-century-parlor vibe as nail techs wash and sanitize hands and set aside an individual spa kit for each guest. They wear latex gloves upon request and eschew spa chairs and whirlpool-type footbaths in favor of disposable pedicure tub liners. The crew decorates nails with Essie, OPI, or Shellac polish and also performs sleek blowouts and straightening treatments at the Blow and Go hair bar.
The salon was created by internationally trained beauty expert and Lima, Peru, native Marizza Contreras and Miami native Jonathan Nussbaum, who was inspired by a girlfriend's frustration the lack of nail salons open after 7 p.m. Nails 111 staffers refine digits until 9 p.m. Monday–Saturday, making late-night manicures possible for owls wishing to impress their prey.
The Spa of Pravana pairs its popular tanning services with spa treatments to help clients look and feel great. Visitors can use one of the spa's UV-tanning beds for a sun-kissed glow in as little as 8 minutes or step into a Mystic Tan standup booth for some quick spray-on color. Airbrush technicians are also available in the spa or on location to give clients a sunless tan with an FDA-approved solution instead of prune juice. Pravana also enlists the help of a board-certified doctor, licensed aesthetician, and certified massage therapist, so clients can supplement their freshly tanned physiques with youthful complexions, clear and soft skin, or relaxed muscles.
In a clean and relaxing environment, Ava Nails transforms nails into miniature masterpieces with professional polishes and odor-free product options. During the pedicure, a green-tea foot scrub evicts unwanted skin cells and softens trotters, and complimentary hot tea keeps mouths from getting jealous. A Thai reflexology foot massage blends the ideas of Chinese reflexology and Thai pressure points, invigorating, soothing, and relaxing the whole body. Said to help stimulate blood circulation and bestow benefits similar to acupuncture, the treatment may relieve pain and stiffness, help flush toxins from the body, or inspire clients to rekindle an old affinity for playing connect the dots.
