Nestled within a calm, robin's-egg-blue treatment room, cozy, pink wingback chairs soak up the sun streaming in through the breezy curtains. This is The Massage Clinic and Day Spa, a tranquil retreat dedicated to massages, facials, and mani-pedis. The massage therapists and skin experts boast 20 years of experience in hydrating and calming skin.
After honing her shear-wielding skills in the Big Apple, Diana Ernandez packed up her kit and headed to Tampa. There, she makes gents look more dapper with fades, infuses ladies’ manes with glamor using highlights, and gets hair stylishly chunky with razor cuts. To help in her beautifying mission, she unleashes a slew of high-end products, such as American Crew, Bed Head, and Redken.
Vine-like metal artwork complements the salon’s polished hardwood floors and pastel yellow walls. Amid these elegant trappings, skilled aestheticians transform nails and tresses with high-end products from OPI, Motives, and Image Skincare. Clients can also make use of LW’s many modern amenities, including cable TV, free WiFi, and gas-powered nail files.
Although a medical doctor and nursing staff oversees the treatments at Success Weight Loss & Medspa, the atmosphere feels nothing like a doctor’s office. Operating under the belief that medically based beautification shouldn’t involve stress or discomfort, the center’s team supplements services, such as custom facials, bikini waxing, and nonsurgical weight-loss treatments, with relaxing elements including shea butter cream and hot towels infused with essential oils.
But Success Weight Loss & Medspa’s services aren’t all towels and butter. For instance, professional-grade ingredients revive tired complexions during facials, glow peels, and rejuvenating eye treatments. While clients kick back and relax, those ingredients get busy retexturing skin, drawing out oils, and erasing dark spots shaped like bull’s eyes, which attract cream pies. Success Weight Loss & Medspa also offers services such as customized airbrush tanning and teeth whitening.
Hair that isn't properly cared for is far more likely to split, damage, and speak poorly of you in its tell-all memoir. That's why expert stylist Kathy Anna pampers strands with bold highlights and voluminous layers that flatter the features. Clients also may seek Kathy's expertise for feather extensions or to nix unwanted hair during a specialty waxing session.
Alexandra Zippi can work wonders with hair. In her newly established studio, she bestows elaborate updos, chic and modern coifs, and natural-looking highlights. She also transforms the look and feel of hair through keratin treatments, which tame frizz and even the feistiest of Medusa's snakes.
