Marilyn Castorina has made a life out of making people prettier. A stylist with more than 20 years of experience and advanced training from both the International Dermal Institute and PCA Skin, she now welcomes clients to From Head to Toe Salon & Spa, where she renovates looks with services ranging from cuts and colors to facials, waxing, and nail services. She begins each hair appointment with a consultation, working with each client to determine a flattering plan before snipping away split ends or adding splashes of Pravana color. One of Bio Sculpture Gel Nails' educators in the state of Florida, she adds personality to fingertips with the company's no-chip color. She also eases tension by massaging faces, necks, and shoulders during the signature facial, and aims to leave complexions firm and acne-free with skin-specific treatments. As a more intensive anti-aging solution, Marilyn might even recommend a microdermabrasion session or a peel featuring clinical formulas by PCA Skin. They also use the Dermalogica skincare line, which was developed at The International Dermal Institute to eliminate common irritants, such as mineral oil, artificial colors, and kryptonite.
Each of Imagine You New's skincare specialists brings at least 10 years of experience to the spa's treatment tables. Still, they refuse to rely solely on their own experience when crafting custom treatments for new clients. Every facial or waxing service begins with an informal consultation, during which the aestheticians select products designed for the client's individual skin type or condition. Their collection of such products is extensive; professional DermaQuest formulas exfoliate and cleanse pores during facial treatments, OPI polishes add a glossy sheen to nails, and Jane Iredale mineral makeups imbue cheeks with a radiant glow. Imagine You New's free WiFi gives guests the chance to show off their new look on a social-networking site or research why their body makes a mechanical hissing sound when pressed on during a deep-tissue massage.
Tranquility Touch Spa & Wellness’s soothing oasis serves as a backdrop for relaxing massages, skin treatments, and group spa parties that incorporate Bella Earth’s natural products. Therapists employ gentle Swedish strokes or firm deep-tissue pressure to target stress, and both modalities can be augmented with the relaxing wafts of aromatherapy, tension-alleviating reflexology, or a hot-stone treatment that give disenfranchised skipping stones a chance to strategically warm physiques. The salon also offers a select menu of skin-refining treatments, unveiling radiant complexions with facials and exfoliating scrubs for the back and feet. Aestheticians also host BYOB massage parties, which combine home-brought libations with massages for the neck and shoulders, feet, and hands, sparking joyful dispositions within pampered attendees.
Board-certified Dr. Hirsch operates an airy, honey-hued haven where day-spa services relax patrons and clinical skincare treatments reinvigorate complexions. In the lobby, stones assemble themselves into the desk's rustic façade, which curves beneath hanging lamps that set glossy black ceiling accents aglow. Earth-toned squares tile the walls and floor of high-ceilinged massage rooms, and coral-colored nailcare rooms swaddle pedicure thrones in a warm glow. In addition to spa and skincare services, the institute also treats clients with cellulite-reduction therapies and age-related hormone replacements.
Minimalist lamps dangle from Intuition Salon and Spa's high ceiling, illuminating the four stylists beneath as they chop coifs into creative styles, paint on highlights, or pile tresses into glamorous updos. The salon owner, Merri Lollis, has navigated the intricacies of the hair industry for more than two decades, a long-term dedication that shows in her handiwork and her calendar, on which every month is named Hairtember. To complement their hair offerings, the team at her full-service salon also nourishes skin with facials, brightens nails with manicures, and waxes away facial stubble.
Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services. Soothing massages employ a collection of kneads, strokes, and manipulations to reduce tension and disentangle body knots, with luxurious add-ons such as paraffin treatments and aromatherapy. The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.
