Ever since Salon Deco opened its doors in June 2013, its friendly, skilled aestheticians have worked to optimize each client's natural beauty. Guests can sip glasses of wine while nail technicians groom and pamper hands, decorating fingernails with long-lasting Shellac polish in traditional or funky colors. The aestheticians also enhance eyes with feminine eyelash extensions, beautify skin with airbrush makeup, and cut and color men's and women's hair. Wood floors and floor-to-ceiling glass windows lend the salon a clean, modern ambiance.
To save beach lovers from harmful UVA and UVB rays, April Clark uses specially formulated sprays that react naturally with skin to produce dark, even tans in 15 minutes. Working inside a private room at Moda Salon, April swathes physiques in the DHA-based solution, which, in one session, can mimic the effects of five visits to a tanning bed or eight days spent soaking in a tub of sun tea.
At Forever Young Laser Clinic, the wheels would come to a screeching halt if it weren't for laser technology. The staff depends on it to remove everything from hair and tattoos to age spots and wrinkles. They can even use the technologically advanced lasers to whiten teeth, though no teeth-whitening technique will ever compare to an old-fashioned toothpaste float.
Paul Mitchell The School Springfield is a Paul Mitchell cosmetology school showcased in a modern space: white walls, jet-black styling chairs, and stainless steel styling stations. The school welcomes students to learn the art of hairstyling and offers services for guests in the salon. There's a color bar and plenty of stylists cutting and styling hair, as well as providing texture and wash-house treatments.
At South Beach Tanning Fantasy, knowledgeable staffers point guests in the direction of 17 beds, including Ergoline and Matrix models that build tans in 12–15 minutes and a UV-free Mystic Tan spray-tan booth. They also customize airbrush tans and harness the power of infrared energy with calorie-burning Formostar body wraps or acne- and sun-damage-fighting red-light therapy.
After their pampering session, patrons can browse the store's selection of clothing and accessories, including designer-inspired handbags. The salon evokes the energy and spirit of Miami's renowned South Beach area with tropical plants, vibrant red and turquoise walls, and a huge selection of low-carb tanning lotions.
Within the cherry confines of bright pink floors and walls blanketed in purple, green, and blue hues, trained aestheticians enhance visages and bodies with full body peels and microderms, massages, waxing, spray tans, and facials. Patients recline on treatment tables while trained personnel send dead skin scattering with microderm treatments and brighten smiles via teeth whitening. Inside the infrared sauna, radiant heat works double-time to both burn calories and evict toxins.
