Festive Cuts Salon’s stylists place a premium on treating their clients well, and not merely with hard work and friendliness. They use organic coloring products to create new looks without harming hair via harsh chemicals. Beyond color treatments, the staff performs a full slate of salon hair services, such as rendering new hairdos with a cut and blow-dry treatment. The salon itself features a whimsical color scheme: lime-green chairs abut zebra-striped stools—or perhaps they’re stool-shaped zebras—and exotic-looking green plants backdrop a shelf full of beauty products.
Sundance Tan & Spa endeavors to consistently outperform its competition with clean beds, friendly staff members, and services ranging from UV and spray tanning to skincare treatments. Its burnished-orange walls enclose private rooms that house eight UV beds—including two stand-up beds—spanning three intensity levels that deliver all-over color and recharge solar-powered cars in 9–20 minute sessions. State-licensed aesthetician Stephanie supplements Sundance’s tanning services with facials, full body waxing, and lash tinting.
Lennard "Mr. Lenny" Joyner abandoned a stressful career in order to help others feel good about their appearances—a process he finds truly rewarding. At his chic West Palm Beach salon, with its mod red-and-black decor and huge floor-to-ceiling windows, he and his staff beautify exteriors from top to bottom. They straighten strands through relaxers and Brazilian keratin treatments, and add instant length with sewn- or bonded-in hair extensions. As for the rest of physiques, they offer makeup applications, waxing treatments, and mani-pedis.
The aestheticians at Diana Spa Room primp and pamper their guests with waxing and facial services. On the hair-removal side, they use hard wax to perform hygienic Brazilian, brow, back, and other waxes. During facials, they target acne or signs of aging and render diamond microdermabrasion.
Barber tools are not toys. But even as a child, Dennis Marquez couldn’t resist playing with his father's set of barber tools in the attic, as he told Wellington the Magazine in 2008. This early admiration led Dennis to train at many prestigious hair schools including Vidal Sassoon in London. More than 35 years ago, Dennis and his wife, Kristina, opened the first Pizzazz Hair Design. The venture succeeded: their business has grown to include five separate salons, many of which have gained praise from NBC 5. Each salon’s stylists, armed with Redken and GKhair products, consult with men, women, teens, and children before revamping their manes with cuts, foil highlights, and hair-smoothing treatments. At the adjoining spas in three of the five salons, technicians paint nails with OPI polishes and cleanse skin with botanical-based Pevonia products.
To stay up to date on current hair trends, each salon's beauticians attend continuing-education courses and dissolve fashion magazines older than three months in jars of barbicide. The Pizzazz team also gives back to the community by donating a portion of salon proceeds to the Adopt-A-Family organization.
Boca Tanning Club salons bronze clients with the help of super tanning beds and booths, as well as UV-free VersaSpa spray-tanning booths. Clients walk past the painted vines, rocks, and rainforest-themed decor before stepping into the spray-tanning booths, which gild limbs in 60 seconds, or into a super bed, which caramelizes skin in less time than a traditional bed. In private rooms, technicians wielding airbrush systems custom shade and contour muscles while de-emphasizing vestigial tails.
Kapricious Salon and Spa’s versatile staff specializes in a wide array of beauty needs. In the nail department, technicians fuss over fingers and toes with files, buffers, and polishes, while aestheticians coax the healthiest tones from clients’ complexions with customized facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasions. Guests can also unwind with a soothing massage or plop into a styling chair for a complete makeover, a stylish cut, or coloring treatment.
