The staff of visage sculptors and tension relievers at balance salon spa is collectively capable of myriad services such as hair styling, skincare, and makeup application. Spa services pamper the epidermal layers with an Aveda Elemental Nature facial infused with a variety of sure-handed massage techniques for the face, scalp, and feet ($65 for 60 minutes). Waxing sessions shear unwanted hairs housed on brows ($15) or arms ($30) with a lukewarm wax derived from plants raised in captivity. Alternatively, balance's salon services include haircuts for men ($25–$45) and women ($35–$60), as well as other indulgent acts such as the aroma-therapeutic botanical-scalp-therapy session ($25), which stimulates blood flow with thorough, gentle massage strokes and aggressive amounts of confidence-instilling compliments.
Gold picture frames, curlicue chandeliers, and animal prints accent the chocolate-hued drawing room where hair and nails receive royal treatments at Oliva Salon & Spa. Digits delight in herbs and essential oils made from pressed, vine-ripened rhinestones before nails are slicked with polish from shellac and Axxium by OPI. When owner and certified Alfaparf color instructor Zan Oliva isn't training stylists throughout Central Florida, she's using her 20 years of experience to pamper her own clients' strands with dimensional and corrective coloring.
Along with these services, you'll be given a detox kit, a nutrition workbook, and a variety of energy-boosting, fat-burning supplements—as well as a Ziploc bag of appetite-suppressing day-old beef tartar. This deal also includes a one-week gym pass to a local Bally Total Fitness, Shapes, or Lifestyle Family Fitness. An appointment is required for the consultation.
After more than 30 years of business, Tonya's Nail Salon has become an area favorite—not only for its nail services, but also for its complimentary glasses of wine and cups of coffee from the beverage bar. While guests relax, the seasoned staff trims fingernails and toenails, gently grooms cuticles, and swipes nails in layers of vibrant OPI polish.
The aestheticians at The Skin Boutique know that, as the largest organ in the human body, skin deserves its fair share of pampering attention. At their studio, they perform a number of services one simply cannot replicate at home. These include full-body waxing, custom airbrush spray tans, and deep-cleansing facials. While performing treatments, the aestheticians rely on products from Prana SpaCeuticals, a natural line of products made with organic botanicals, herbs, nut oils, and Hollywood-celebrity tears.
