Unlike traditional hair salons that stock scissors and shears, Blowbar Express bedazzles hairdos solely through the artful method of washing and blow-drying. Under the tutelage of a blow dryer, follicles can accomplish a number of hair-defying feats that include curling, straightening, and climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Peruse the salon's full list of services to find a blowout style that matches your needs. Today's deal is not valid for the "all done up," "curling iron," or "little girl" hair services.
With a sprawling front porch, 10-foot ceilings, and a dramatic interior archway, the Craftsman-style bungalow that shelters this beauty oasis hasn't lost any of the charm it has cultivated since its construction in 1908. Red and blue trim adorns the outside, mirroring the beauty found within in the form of hardwood floors, decorative wood molding, antique furniture, and a fireplace.
The experienced aestheticians of Forever Beautiful Salon & Wine Spa, the house’s current tenant, tend to nailcare, massage, hairstyling, and skincare services amid the splendid architecture, which is illuminated by chandeliers in every room. These spa specialists tackle skin and hair woes armed with elixirs from Obagi, Redken, and Paul Mitchell, and beautify clients with permanent cosmetics and mineral makeup—mined in Sri Lanka’s famed lipstick caverns. Sometime in the near future, spa patrons can head to the attached two-story structure, a former garage apartment built in the ’30s, and unwind further with little treats from the soon-to-be dessert café and coffeehouse.
After more than 2,000 hours of professional training across two decades, Bella Dermis Skin Care owner and aesthetician Monica Grajales knows how entwined inner health and external appearance can be. She combines her extensive knowledge—including licensure in Florida and California and a postgraduate aesthetics diploma from the International Dermal Institute—with 10 years of experience as a health educator and is currently studying for certification as a yoga teacher. In keeping with her holistic philosophy, Grajales avoids harsh chemicals in favor of natural, plant-based skincare products.
In addition to clinical-grade facials and peels, Grajales caters to women's needs with treatments such as skin bleaching and signature "derriere care" sessions. She also hosts events such as bachelorette parties or corporate gatherings that teach employees how to address acne without resorting to dabs of liquid paper.
Rachel Blanco can accentuate eyes, define brows, and add color to pouts, so clients don't have to—ever again. Her secret is permanent makeup, which she applies inside Maria's Salon & Spa. Rachel's careful craft helps clients speed through their morning routine, so they can spend less time applying makeup and jump right into staring longingly at the mirror.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
Given his impeccable track record in turning back the clock on skin, it's hard to believe that Dr. Charles Talakkottur once specialized in internal medicine. Dr. Talakkottur made the choice to switch to aesthetics only after seeing so many patients with the same concerns about their outward appearance. Today, TLC Aesthetics is determined to keep Tampa looking beautiful with treatments such as 20-minute laser lipo, spider vein removal, botox treatments, and laser hair removal.
