The lowdown: Marilyn Monroe’s spirited and vivacious spirit is alive and well in Midtown Miami. With the recent opening of — you guessed it — Marilyn Monroe Spas, the area received a major dose of glam in the form of a luxe day spa and nail boutique.
The ‘hood: Nestled within the pedestrian-friendly Shops at Midtown Miami, the spa calls Loehmann’s and Sweet Point Restaurant & Café its neighbors.
The vibe: In keeping with the American icon’s come-hither looks, Marilyn Monroe Spas is replete with striking whitewashed wood floors, modern furnishings, soft-pink lighting, pops of red hues — with a larger-than-life photograph of the sex symbol herself serving as the space’s focal point.
The highlights: From quick polish changes ($15), manicures (express for $20, signature for $28) to long-lasting pedicures (express for $28, signature for $40) to makeup application (starting at $15), the facility has clients covered from head to toe. Signature services include a lengthier massage and organic scrubs. The added bonus? Every manicure and pedicure includes a matching nail polish, buffer and nail file to take home. The spa also boasts an exclusive line of products — make-up, nail color, beauty maintenance, skincare and hair care products — for when customers are in need of a novel beauty haul.
