At Milagros SalonSpa, an Aveda-concept salon and spa, botanically derived Aveda products flood bodies and faces during beautifying services for both hands and hair. During the Gelish manicure, aestheticians shape nails, soften hands, and make cuticles retract as swiftly as a reprimanded box turtle before applying a patron-selected gel shade. Gelish’s formula cures under a special LED lamp within 30 seconds, stays chip-free for up to three weeks, soaks off in 15 minutes, and diverts attention during sleight-of-hand tricks within seconds.
Alternatively, expert ethnic-hair specialist Nicole deftly maneuvers tricky textures into flattering cuts and wet- or dry-styled ‘dos, while those requiring simpler mane-management solutions can opt for a basic cut and blow-dry. Developed with help from Milagros’ staff, Aveda’s demi-permanent Smooth Infusion system softens finicky frizz with botanical ingredients, eschewing formaldehyde in its quest to defend locks from humidity and the anxious thoughts that cause tangles for up to two months. Friendly chatter flutters gently beneath the lofty wood-beam ceiling and exposed ductwork of the salon’s brick-walled space.
Though Milagros SalonSpa sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
Milagros Salon Spa
While studying hairdressing in the late 1980s at an Aveda salon, Lisa Vann fell in love with the company's products and global ethics. She decided to further her relationship with the beauty business by helping to develop new Aveda haircare lines and traveling the world to demonstrate the brand's products and techniques to other salon professionals. The owner and acclaimed stylist of Milagros Salon Spa has had her work featured in several publications, including Glamour, Marie Claire, and Essence, and received four consecutive nominations for international hairstylist of the year from the Canadian Mirror Awards.
In keeping with Lisa's Aveda upbringing, Milagros's staff performs each salon and spa treatment with botanically derived Aveda products. Stylists brighten strands and fading area rugs using Aveda Full Spectrum hair color blended from 97% natural ingredients. Body treatments—such as the rosemary-mint wrap and sea-salt polish—and custom facials detoxify and balance skin with plant extracts and hydrating creams.
