At Spa Organix, personal attention is more than just a tag line. From the single private treatment room to the aestheticians’ insistence on customizing each of their skin and body services, everything at the spa suggests the exact opposite of a cookie-cutter experience. Among the treatments that best exemplify this philosophy are exfoliating facials, which account for individual skin types before revivifying complexions with Éminence products.
The spa’s massage therapists go to the same lengths as their aesthetician counterparts, devoting their attention to areas below the neckline with a retinue of bodywork treatments. Aside from the flagship facials and massages, the staff offers waxing treatments, NovaLash extensions, and Circadia peels that work to wipe away blemishes and monocle indentations.
The stylists of Changes Hair Studio think that hair is everyone’s best accessory, and they’ve spent nearly 30 years revamping that accessory with fashion-forward styles. Over that time, their team evolved into two divisions: the new talent perfect skills by practicing basic cuts and color retouches at discounted rates, and the advanced design team administers professionally priced cut and color services as well as keratin treatments and hair extensions affixed with brain waves. New and seasoned stylists alike draw from the same lineup of professional salon products, including patented protein formulas from Redken.
Fluctuations in stress levels and health often go often hand in hand, and addressing one without the other can mask but not eliminate problems. Knowing this, the staff of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Absolute Wellness Spa works to cultivate a tranquil environment in which relaxing treatments address both bodily and mental health at the same time. Those treatments, which include massages, healing acupuncture, and mud wraps, draw on Western medical practices and Eastern philosophy to better approach wellness issues from a variety of angles. In the studio, quiet music plays to relax patrons, and fountains burble softly like a scuba diver trying to tell a secret.
A coffee bar covered in mosaic tile doles out doses of espresso to customers in the waiting area of Prado Spa & Salon. Bolstered by caffeine boosts, they can proceed to salon stations or private rooms for services such as facials with YonKa and Éminence products and manicures with polishes from OPI and Essie. Staffers also specialize in various advanced beauty treatments: Aesthetician Shanelle applies individual synthetic eyelash extensions, and licensed massage therapist Dianne supplements traditional bodywork with holistic reiki and crystal-therapy treatments.
Located just off Clematis Street in lively West Palm Beach, One XI Salon & Beauty Bar fits right in among the neighborhood’s boutiques, nightclubs, and restaurants. The salon’s high-spirited stylists clips to the rhythms of trendy music, putting down their shears every so often to offer their guests complimentary glasses of beer and wine. Owner Cathi oversees the team of stylists she handpicked for their friendly demeanor and wealth of haircare and styling certifications. Before leaving, guests can take home specialty products from L'Oreal Professional and Moroccanoil to help maintain salon-like hair and silky mutton chops at home.
Salon W and Spa burnishes bodies from bangs to toenail using brand-name products. Skin rules inside the spa's private treatment rooms, where aestheticians draw inner beauty outward with glycolic peels, skin-resurfacing facials, and Jan Marini skincare products. On the salon floor, stylists add dimension to locks with highlights backed by haircare products from Davines and Bumble and bumble. Massages come in seven editions, from an aromatherapy version that includes fragrant essential oils to a hot-stone variety that both melts the tension in clients' backs and warms the pies in their overalls.
