Looking tense at the beach is not so chic. So The Beach Shack preps sand-stompers for swim season with a relaxing repertoire of services that dissolve tension, whittle down body shapes, and install base tans. Bronzing artists deploy SunFX spray tans in a mere 10- to 15-minute block, leaving clients plenty of time to hit the shore and harpoon some beach balls. Onsite aestheticians slim silhouettes with infrared body wraps and brighten manes with feather hair extensions. Deeper transformations take place as the staff’s medical director renews faces with Botox and targets unwanted fuzz or spider veins with laser technology, readying legs for pants-free Fridays at the office. Once bodies are all set to storm a sand castle, patrons can don swimwear from prominent wet-friendly brands such as Billabong,, Roxy, and Ed Hardy.
At Sotaira's Organic Spa & Yoga Studio, staff members instill visitors with a newfound sense of confidence by gussying up exteriors and keeping bodies fit with yoga and Pilates classes. Slimming body wraps help to purge inches more effectively than a corset imbued with the force of 10,000 bear hugs, and aestheticians hydrate visages with such organic ingredients as chamomile or antioxidant-rich red grapes. The massage therapists' mental rolodex of modalities includes relaxing and therapeutic techniques as well as maternity treatments for expectant mothers or hatching ostrich eggs. Intent on refining posture, instructors of the center's Vinyasa yoga and Pilates mat classes help to keep bodies and minds trim regardless of students' skill level or age.
If it’s a beauty-related service, chances are that Escape Salon has it covered. Stylists create custom coifs via men’s and women’s haircuts, coloring, texturing services, and formal updos. Five different pedicure services—some of which include warm paraffin dips and hot-stone therapy—reward hardworking feet for their years of loyal service, and custom spray tanning bronzes bodies without requiring customers to construct wax wings and fly too close to the sun.
In addition to offering special prices for kids’ haircuts, Escape Salon also pampers youngsters with manicures and pedicures designed especially for them.
Premiere Tans transforms translucent skin into a golden covering using bakes, sprays, and polishes. The VersaSpa treatment, which is available at the Dave Ward Drive location, disperses natural oils while sunless bronzing agents evenly baste and moisturize skin with amino acids and aloe. The color spray dries quickly, revealing a deep shade of bronze that glows more than a burning frisbee thrown through the night sky. Choose between a cosmetic bronzer or a clear, nontinted solution, depending on which best suits your body.
Elan Spa massage therapist, Deidra I. Maltbia, has been relaxing client's tense sinews for three years. The intimate space at her spa offers hands-on pampering to guests, featuring a rock-fountain pedicure that soaks feet in a sea-mineral bath fed by a trickling stream and features cuticle shaping performed by sea nymphs. The list of services also includes four varieties of facials, individually bonded eyelash extensions, and mani-pedis designed specifically for men.
Along with the talented staff of Elan Spa, aesthetician Candy Heidenreich eases the pain of achy feet and upgrades dull nails with dazzling polishes from OPI. Guests can retire to a private room for Rock Fountain pedicures, during which feet soak beneath a trickling stream enriched by ocean minerals and the tears of legless mermen. Other services at the spa include Jessner peels, NovaLash extensions, and just-for-guys facials.
