Brazilian-trained waxing experts do away with unwanted hair inside Jaira's Waxing Salon. The staff tackles fuzz on men and women in locations such as faces, backs, legs, and livers. The salon pops with decorative touches that include bright red accent walls and zebra-print chairs in black-and-white and red-and-white color combos.
The founders of Soleil Tans believe that a trip to the tanning salon should feel like a mini-vacation—a welcome respite from the stress of work, the chaos of exams, or the company of a pet dog who just learned how to play the theme to Three's Company. They've packed their sleek, modern salons with powerful standup booths and tanning beds, outfitted with amenities such as music players, air conditioners, and adjustable air showers. There's even specialty beds designed to target upper bodies, faces, and legs.
The salons are staffed by sunless tanning specialists boasting extensive training and experience in the art of spray tans. They airbrush skin with a UV-free Norvell formula, customizing applications to accommodate varying skin types and desired looks. The staffers can also equip clients with professional skincare products that help moisturize skin, as well as teeth-whitening solutions that work to brighten smiles during UV-tanning sessions.
The licensed, experienced staff at Boca Salons Day Spa & Tanning banishes stress and discomfort from organ empires with a kaleidoscope of body-bettering spa services. The 90-minute Boca massage pampers bodies from head to foot with a rubdown that focuses on specific problem areas––such as a habitually sore tennis elbow or ping-pong pinky ($95). For a slimmer, firmer physique, guests can opt for the 60-minute peppermint-sea-twist body wrap, which employs freshly harvested seaweed and peppermint oil to rejuvenate skin, contour the body, and improve aches and water retention ($100). Revamp overworked hands and feet with a classic manicure ($16+) and pedicure ($35+) that polishes digits so they may shine like a disco ball gone supernova.
Drama Salon owner Steven Camins, a former manager of Vidal Sassoon Salons in New York and California, and his staff stay up to date on the top beauty trends and techniques with classes and seminars. “We each have a responsibility to make the client look and feel their best,” Camins told the Home News Tribune, which reported on the salon’s in-depth consultations. All the extra training means all stylists are expert colorists who specialize in hair-straightening keratin treatments and custom extensions for professional head-bangers. The team also keeps clients’ nails at their best with french and Shellac manicures.
With their skin warm and newly darkened, patrons slip from the traditional tanning beds at Electric Beach. A gentle sibilance drifts from rooms where tanning technicians spray down patrons while keeping the individual’s skin tone in mind. They also draw upon lotions that prep epidermises with pH-balancing skin conditioners and keep skin tan. The studio's shelves brim with products from Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Splash Tonics, all of which help protect skin, improve the tanning process, or serve as identification on a yacht.
At Nirvana Nails & Day Spa, the decor stands out. It's more than just fluorescent lights and mirrors. Stained-wood accents, a curtain of ivy-like plants across faux-stone walls, candles, flowers, and twinkling crystal light fixtures have the power to transport guests away from their day-to-day drudgery. Amid this decor, the staff offers spa treatments for men, women, and couples, including body treatments that complement a selection of facials, massages, and nailcare services.
