In recent months, plenty of newcomers have made Tampa Bay their home. As new arrivals get settled into the city, we know they'll be searching for a place to get their beauty pampering and upkeep done as we gear up for the holiday season when there are tons of events to attend and places to go. 

Whether you're new to the area or just looking for a refreshing new glow, we have rounded up a few of our areas best salons for your makeover:

Chic Image Lounge

The eyes and skin are the first two things everyone will see, so they become the most important parts of our beauty regimen. Thank goodness for Chic Image Lounge on Platt Street in South Tampa. The establishment opened in 2014 and has since serviced local celebrity clients. Here you'll celebrate all things beauty as you're handed a glass of champagne prior to or during your service.

Starting with the eyes -- have you heard of a lash lift? It's a lash curl perm treatment that lasts up to eight weeks giving you, "I woke up like this" lashes! After recently experiencing a gentle, yet relaxing three-step process and seeing the results of the lash lift by Chic Image, I highly recommend a visit. For skincare, the owner developed a line of beauty products and a lip bar where gals can actually create their own customized lipstick and skin products. Your skin will love you back when receiving one of a variety of facials - from organic to medical grade - such as the hydro facial performed by a professional aesthetician.

Crave Spa 

Fingers and toes are a top priority at the Crave Spa on Howard Avenue in Tampa. After discovering the harmful effects of chemicals used in a majority of salons, the founders created an entirely new concept for beauty care that fosters a health-conscious environment. Crave is a safe haven designed to appeal to both males and females with its loft-style aesthetics and comfy couch-like seating. Much like a chocolate craving, you'll want to have your nails, feet, and skin pampered at this location while the staff keeps you in the know on the latest beauty trends and ensuring your personal wellness during your sessions. Be aware, due to their mission to protect your health, the spa will not offer acrylics nor hard gels containing resin ingredients. Although, as a bonus to your experience, you'll enjoy their use of custom soaps and vegan scrubs. It's no wonder Tampa locals consider Crave a must visit for makeovers.

Crown and Mane

Need to give your hair a much needed revamp? Head over to the recently opened shop in Snow Circle at popular Hyde Park Village. It's a blowout expert salon serving "bespoke" blow-dry and styling tailored specifically to your needs. I truly appreciate being able to choose a custom blow out style online when scheduling an appointment. The moment you walk in the door you'll be indulged by a luxurious atmosphere and knowledgeable stylists who provide feel-good services such as a scalp massage, brow shaping, and even braids if you're looking for a romance-inspired do. Bridal, birthday or Sweet 16 parties are welcomed too. Book a fun and lush date at the salon to include the works along with makeup artistry. If you plan on staying in Tampa, we found it worthwhile to share that Crown and Mane offers two monthly membership packages to get all the do-overs you'll need, which is the best way to enjoy a stress-free makeover. After you've been dolled up, have your date night in one of several stylish restaurants in Tampa.
