Inside any of Hairdoctors Specialty Salons' five full-service locations, skilled aestheticians treat hair and nails with a range of pharmaceutical and natural services. They trim and style hair, perform keratin treatments, and color strands using crayons or ammonia-free dyes and cellophanes. The staff’s work extends beyond hair services via manicures and pedicures. Aestheticians also add to clients' existing hair with extensions—strands made from Remy or virgin Indian human hair and attached to scalps via weaving, taping, fusion, or gluing. Hairdoctors Specialty Salons also posts informative hair-extension FAQs on its website.
Red Carpet Salon & Spa offers a relaxing atmosphere for getting pampered. You can sip a glass of wine while getting a spa pedicure or release muscular tension during a massage.

The nail techs at VIP Lao Nails titivate fingers and toes with a full range of nailcare services, from standard mani-pedis to gel fills and Shellac nails.

With average temperatures in the '70s and '80s, it makes sense that Miami is full of body-baring outfits.

With the hope of further beautifying bodies, they established Velour—a full med spa—in 2010.
Its certified medical aestheticians, who are supervised by a medical director, still perform the popular laser hair-removal treatments, but they also fade unwanted spider veins, smooth cellulite, and rely on intense pulsed light to refresh faces. In addition to beautifying clients, they relax with massages and mani-pedis, which take place in a pristine all-white room.
For nearly three decades, the stylists at Beauty Strategy have outsmarted wind, humidity, and other harbingers of bad-hair days by combining their international styling educations with handpicked salon products. They work with all hair types—frizzy curls included—and begin each of their cuts with a free consultation. This crucial aspect of the appointment gives them a better sense of their clients’ style and aesthetic vision. The salon’s staff doesn’t limit its scope to the scalp; manicures and pedicures keep nails groomed, and 11 types of facials work to erase acne, redness, and bite marks from untrained houndstooth scarves.
