The Beauty Beat: 9/18-9/24

Style, snip and stretch.

Mid-September brings hair-styling solutions from TopStyler, salon discounts at Snip and stretching at the Standard.

BEAUTY: If the beautiful bouncy curls and beachy waves at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim are still haunting you, skip the blowout and invest in the TopStyler. From the brilliant geniuses who invented InStyler, these heated shells twist around hair to give you the curls and waves you crave. Then, take another tip from the shows and preserve your locks with Tresemme’s Fresh Start dry shampoo. It sprays on to keep your beachy waves going long after you’ve stepped off the sand. GET IT: TopStyler available at Tresemme available at drug stores nationwide.

SPA: Fact: As of 2005, there were approximately 400,000 salons in the U.S. Falling into the top 100 of those is, to say the least, a huge accomplishment. Lucky for us, one of those top 100 salons, as named by Elle Magazine, is right here in our own backyard: Snip Salon. To celebrate the Elle-awarded honor, the salon is giving a 15 percent discount on hair services to anyone who mentions top 100. Be sure to sing the salon’s top 100 praises when you call to book an appointment. GET IT: 456 Arthur Godfrey Road, Miami Beach; 305.532.7333.   

GYM: The Standard is doing it up for National Yoga Month. With one free H2-OM yoga class, one week free yoga with a Yoga Month guest card (which can be shared with friends who are new to yoga), a mat crawl (in conjunction with Green Monkey), a one-on-one yoga promo and a free Yoga Month event on Sept. 20, it’s a yogis dream come true. What’s that you say, you aren’t a yogi? What better time to start? Head over to the Standard to experience a form of exercise that will balance your life, stretch your muscles and offer more health benefits than you can even fathom. Yes, it really does all that … and more. But don’t just take our word for it, sign up for the one-on-one promotion and get a one-on-one session of your choice: fitness training, pilates, yoga or meditation with whichever instructor you prefer (60 minutes for $90, regularly $120). Warning, yoga is highly addictive and your body and mind will thank you for it. GET IT: Visit to print your Yoga Month Guest Card. GET IT: 40 Island Ave., Miami Beach; 305.673.1717.
