Pretty in the City - Art Basel edition

Art Basel is here and the galleries of Wynwood and the Design District are packed with beautiful hip people, vying for attention with the paintings on the walls. And of course everyone is out to look their flyest. The beauty industry of Miami is well aware that the influx of visitors are looking to be pampered and prettified, and some of the coolest spas are offering special Art Basel beauty packages.

At the fabulous four star Ritz-Carlton Spa, (One Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach), art lovers can indulge with not one, but two fabulous reduced-priced salon specials. And they're appropriately named too!

The Monet Manicure gives you a half hour hand treatment for $30. Your

dry paws will be exfoliated with sweet almond and sea salts to gently

polish the skin, followed by a deep moisturizing shea butter massage.

And no hand treatment is complete without nail cutting, shaping,

buffing, and of course, a coat of fresh polish.

The Picasso

Pedicure costs $70, but for that chunk of cash you get your tootsies

soaked in a hydro foot spa before the exfoliation, clipping, and

polishing. The special is valid November 24 through December 8. Call


The men don't have to feel left out of the

pampering pleasure -- at the Monsieur Elite Grooming Parlour For Men

(3143 Ponce De Leon Blvd., Coral Gables), dudes can relax with

massages, pedicures, hair styling, and facial treatments. Plus there's

a cigar lounge and wi-fi! For spa services call 305-774-2931, or visit
