The Beauty Beat: 8/21 to 8/27

This week, twist, de-stress and pose.

Bid farewell to unsightly ponytail marks with TwistBand, have a mojito and a scrub at The Mayfair Jurlique Spa and give the new Cottage Yoga Studio a go.

BEAUTY: If ever the age-old adage “can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em” applied to anything, it’s ponytail holders. Have to have them to keep your hair up, up and away. Have to hate them for leaving a crease in your hair after the fact. Thankfully, TwistBand came up with a solution to your dented post-workout hair. These colorful little hair holders won’t leave marks in your mane (or on your wrists when not in use). And they come in enough color options to make them the Scrunchie of 2011. GET IT: Starting at $2. Available at GBS, The Beauty Store 18545 West Dixie Hwy., Aventura; 305.931.5291.

SPA: Sometimes, the best way to unwind is with a drink in hand. Add a little spa time to that equation and you’ve just taken a mini vacay. The Mayfair Jurlique Spa is now offering the Miami Mojito Body Scrub & Welcome Cocktail combo. A mojito-inspired mint body scrub sloughs off your stress, while an after-treatment Mojito cocktail in the spa’s relaxation room or rooftop pool keeps the R&R coming. GET IT: Through August, 60 minutes for $110 (gratuity not included). Call 305.441.0000 to book your appointment, and be sure to mention the code “Mojito” to get the rate listed above. 3000 Florida Ave., Coconut Grove.      

GYM: Attention, yogis. There’s a new studio in town. The Cottage Yoga Studio, parked over in Miami's MiMo District, is the new hotspot to let your vinyasa flow. With everything from power yoga to prenatal classes, the Cottage is a destination for novice yogis and free head-standing yogis alike. Plus, the charming setting makes you automatically feel right at home. For a schedule of classes, check here. GET IT: Individual classes $12, private sessions $80, packages starting at $99. 7120a Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305.762.6694.
