Stylists at Fantasia Spa & Cut fill the air with the gentle hum of their blow dryers as they style freshly shorn locks with Schwarzkopf and American Crew products. In addition to performing modern cuts, stylists can color hair with highlights and rich single-process hues or combat frizz with semipermanent keratin smoothing treatments and Brazilian blowouts. Nail technicians moisturize cuticles with hot oil in manicures and pedicures. Aestheticians refresh faces with vitamin C and fit pore-refining masks over visages formerly adorned with vitamin-deficient luchador masks.
At Guided Hands Massage Therapy, licensed massage therapists customize 30-minute massage sessions to soothe body aches. Mothers-to-be can prepare babies for tickling with the prenatal massage, which helps to soothe weight-bearing joints and inline skates. Clients can relax with the Swedish massage’s gentle, gliding strokes or enjoy injury relief after the therapeutic massage. To personalize sessions, the therapist will migrate kneads toward sore or tense areas, if desired. Visitors can target deep-rooted twinges by sleeping on a backscratcher or upgrading to a deep-tissue massage for an additional $10 (not included with this Groupon).
A regal entrance reminiscent of a Roman bath welcomes patrons into Gjeto’s Salon and Day Spa, where painted ceilings and arched entryways carry on the lavish theme. The luxury isn’t just in appearances, either. Upon arrival, a friendly consultant greets each guest, handing off a plush robe, slippers, and keys to a private locker for stashing away belongings or a long workday's bad vibes. From there, guests can head into the day spa, where zen-like spa rituals aim to soothe both body and mind. For instance, licensed massage therapists can dispel stress and muscular tension with an aromatherapeutic massage before patrons sink into a cozy pedicure couch for an indulgent foot and nail treatment topped off with vegan polish. While women enjoy Jane Iredale makeup applications, men can head to the gentlemen's oasis for a facial specially tailored to freshly shaven skin. Flanked by vibrant golden walls, the hair salon welcomes both men and women to take a seat at a mahogany station, where they can admire their freshly snipped locks in a small rectangular mirror.
Bubblegum pink. Sugary treats. Rhinestones and glitter. Sweet and Sassy’s stylists pamper moppets during shrunken-down spa treatments spun with these elements. As tots lounge on tangerine pillows, kid-calibrated manicures and pedicures bejewel their keratin shields with sparkly nail art and adorn their favorite digits with rings and toe rings. Facials slather visages with gentle, sweet-smelling concoctions, and ear-piercing services add appropriate glint to kids' facial regions so that they can stop lodging beads in their nostrils. For birthday parties, celebrants can arrive in the spa’s pink limousine before strutting down the runway in Sweet and Sassy’s glittery gowns.

Throughout the course of their lives, people might spend several hours studying their hair in the mirror, but that qualifies very few of them to be trichologists. The branch of medicinal science known as trichology focuses on the study of the hair and scalp, and it’s a field that Agape Jordan is intimately familiar with, thanks to her certification. She puts her knowledge to use creating gentle, hair-restorative scalp treatments free of harsh chemicals. They are suited for those who suffer from a hair-loss disease such as lupus or those in the midst of chemotherapy.
She complements her specialized head-dressing treatments with skin-pampering services for all. Her epidermal services emphasize acne treatments, vitamin C restorative facials, and anti-aging treatments designed to repel the chief causes of aging: homework, bosses, and the undeniable loveliness of Florida.
