Their services include updos, facial waxing, glitter body art, makeup applications, and glitter extensions, which they pare down for kids’ parties.

Retreat to this fancy Carrollwood "tree house" for a complete pampering package that will have songbirds lining up on the windowsill to chirp their appreciation. Sit back and relax while the salon professionals get to work trimming your talons and extracting unwanted facial fuzz. Coiffeur Inga Salon has been in business for more than 20 years and staffs a superbly trained roster of skilled beauty professionals. High-quality products are featured in all treatments.
At The Atelier, staffers pamper customers' hair, skin, and nails with premium, often organic products as their guests sink into comfy salon chairs. Nail techs brighten nails with OPI and Essie polishes, and premium add-ons, such as a mineral clay mask or chocolate-shea-butter scrub, transform mani-pedis into luxurious spa experiences. The aestheticians use organic Image products during facials and use seaweed during detoxifying body wraps or mermaid-lookalike contests.
Bella Amour Salon's space pairs wooden accents with cool tones––royal blue, mint green, and turquoise to promote relaxation. While nestled in a cozy salon chair, clients can request sleek scissor cuts or elegant new highlights with high-end products from brands such as Redken and Paul Mitchell. Bella Amour's stylists also specialize in extensions and straightening treatments to de-frizz finicky hair.
Hearing the words "carve and slice" in the same sentence as the words ?beauty treatment? probably brings to mind painful plastic surgery, but at TranZitions Hair Salon, it's actually a service for your curls. Ouidad-certified stylists perform the carve-and-slice technique to cut down on the unwanted volume that causes a "pyramid look" while still defining and plumping up your ringlets. It's one of a select few Ouidad procedures at the salon, which also employs products from Paul Mitchell, Goldwell, Kenra, Redken, and other high-profile brands. The hair mavens administer treatments that range from custom highlights and complex updos to a 15-minute bang trim, a far chicer way to keep your hair out of your eyes than installing an awning on your glasses.
Besides their cuts and color applications, the staff also performs waxing, makeup, and nail services, which can include extras such as an aromatherapy hand massage. Additionally, skincare specialists exfoliate complexions with facials and microdermabrasion.
