Although the Armin Salon and Spa in South Miami will celebrate its second anniversary in January, owner Armin Khavari says the business has only just begun to take shape and there are big plans for 2013.
Khavari intends to expand the operation to the second floor of the building where his salon is located. The extra space will give him the areas to expand all of the available services, as well as provide the necessary space to branch out into other specialties such as massage therapy.
Armin Salon also recently acquired the very experienced staff formerly with the established Mr. Roberts salon, was once a cosmetology staple in South Miami. Salon goers who were did not know where their favorite beauty technicians went will find many of them at the Armin Salon, including the familiar faces of nail tech Celia and hairstylists Lisa, Millie and Nancy.
The son of Janilla and Farid Khavari, who enjoyed great success in the beauty business, Armin Khavari took the years of experience he gained from his parents and the education that he sought in that field academically, and used them to infuse his own enterprise with a professional expertise.
“I had the great opportunity to learn how to run a successful business by watching my parents,” he says. “Growing up, I watched professionals work every day, and when I was old enough I went to school for it.”
Armin Salon and Spa offers an abundance of beauty care services, including salon standards such as hair, nails, facials, waxing, threading, manicures, pedicures and acrylics. Their equipment is state of the art and the layout and design of the place, from the modern-style mirrors and light fixtures to the soothing music, provides a pleasant and idyllic atmosphere where customers can’t help but unwind and shed their daily concerns.
If someone were asked to guess what kind of establishment they were in solely by looking at the floor, they would be stumped; it is exceptionally clean and there is not a stray hair to spot.
Prospective customers looking for body treatments outside of traditional salon amenities may find Armin’s ultrasound and micro-current liposuction therapies to be just what they are looking for. One “tightens” and one “shreds”, but according to Khavari, both are guaranteed to yield results almost immediately.
“We tell clients to come in wearing their tightest pants, ones they can barely clasp the buckle on,” says Khavari. “When they leave, their pants fit very loosely, and in 15 sessions people notice a dramatic improvement in their body’s sculpture.”
Aside from offering holiday combo packages that are a given with any salon worth its weight in hair dye, Khavari wants to extend an invitation to anyone reading this story by offering a special, exclusive deal.
“Anyone who mentions this article when they call or come in for any hair service will receive a complimentary conditioning treatment to go with it,” he says.
Armin Salon and Spa, at 5910 SW 73rd St., with free parking available behind the building, is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday thru Saturday, although they will remain open later for parties.
