best miami hair salons, danny jelaca hair salon, best miami beach hair salons

 

Summer is a great time to check out the latest beauty treatments and start a new routine to get in shape for “the season”. My hairdresser, the super talented Steven Schmidt who has coiffed the super models at Fashion Weeks from Milan to New York and Paris Couture, moved to a new salon and medspa, Danny Jelaca. He told me about the cutting edge skin treatments for men and women and uber mani pedis, and said it is one of the best hair salons in Miami,  so off I went to South Beach to check them out.

Fab New Miami Boutiques

Wonderful is the only way to describe Upper Buena Vista. It’s described by the architects as a “community driven lifestyle destination where specialty retail, hospitality and wellness coalesce, embracing Miami’s culture and injecting it with global flare”. Picture this: lush vegetation and huge trees including an 80 year old banyan tree, their leafy canopies almost embracing the single story shops ressembling Japanese temples, thatched roof huts , and expansive windows that allow you to look into the fashion and décor finds inside. And finds there are, in 21 tasteful retail shops, including micro and petite boutiques. The concept is to offer affordable space for emerging designers and entrepreneurs. Then there are the complementary services – food, coffee bar, cryotherapy, hair, nails and beauty bar, tattoos and more. Here’s a short rundown of my favorites (and there were plenty), with a short description of each. This is not to be missed.

The Lipstick Pout Out. Kylie vs. Colour Pop

Long lasting lipstick. For years companies have claimed to have the one that works, but I haven’t seen the results. Who has the time (or remembers) to constantly touch up lipstick, let alone have a pocket mirror to do hourly lipstick checks. Enter Kylie Jenner whose social media network is getting her close to being the youngest self made billionaire based on her cosmetics line. For long lasting lipsticks, she has her Posie K and Candie K lines. Another contender is the more popularly priced hot brand out of California, ColourPop. I decided to do a test of both. My criteria– no stains, smudges, and that it be long lasting.

Do’s and Don’ts of a Spray Tan

With all of this rain we’re having, getting a tan is a challenge. Plus, with ocean temperatures more comfortable for us locals, and with that, more beach days, thoughts turn to looking good in our bathing suits and a full body spray tan. Having seen too many people with the “orange” look, I talked to Fabiola Trujillo of Sobe Tan, one of the top tanning salons Miami and a celebrity favorite, for a list of everything you’d want to know about getting a great spray tan.
