Many years of concierge experience have given Brian Bean insider knowledge of all the best places to unwind in Miami Beach. Here are his recommendations for where to find the latest cuisine, world-class salons and glamorous couture this fall.
For an elevated salon experience, Bean recommends PRIVÉ SALON inside the Remède Spa for guests to obtain a beautiful mane of glossy hair. The menu ranges from women’s haircuts and a 60-minute intensive Privé mask with a polished blow-dry to hair extensions and bridal hair. (305-993-0600; stregisbalharbour.com/remede-spa)
For a truly extravagant and one-of-a-kind salon, Bean directs guests to the fantastical 1160 HAIR. Owner Wendy Kahn wanted to create a fairytale experience accompanied by top stylists, educators and beauty specialists. The salon offers a number of food-themed pedicures involving chocolate, peppermint or strawberry cream. (1160 Kane Concourse, Bay Harbor Islands; 305-868-8210; 1160hair.com)
