A beachy breeze wafts botanical scents evocative of Old World charm through Brownes & Co., an exotic mecca catering beauty for the body and soul at its popular Lincoln Road and Miami Design District spin-off locations. A local favorite equally as appealing to visiting celebs, Brownes is a rarity in the beauty industry. The Miami Beach beauty landmark has moved to the second floor of its ever-present location at 841 Lincoln Road.
“After 19 years on Lincoln Road we have touched a generation,” Gary Feinberg, Brownes & Co. owner, says. “We are thrilled that we’ll remain on Lincoln Road to touch the next one.”
The beauty of Brownes is that its South Beach and Design District locations are one-stop shops, melding store, spa, salon, and even a yoga studio, signature to Brownes on Lincoln Road. Shop high-quality, hard-to-find cosmetics, SPFs, soaps, fragrances and anti-aging, skincare and haircare products, from choice brands such as Bond No. 9, Comme des Garçons and Molton Brown, or scour the modern-day chic apothecary for baby products, gifts, home and pet items and other sundries.
If you’re due for a haircut, color or mani/pedi, or plan on heading out for dinner, cocktails or an event, the professionals at Brownes’ full-service salon, Some Like It Hot, play up hair, makeup and nails for Miami’s elite. It is here where London-trained colorist Nikki Mallon and Gary Feinberg began their partnership. Mallon and Feinberg were in the market for more than just looks, so they opened Brownes & Co. in 1995 with a focus on wellness. The Yoga Room at Brownes offers more than a dozen different forms or styles of yoga from experienced teachers who value the highest standard of teaching. In 2009, the partners expanded their reputable business and opened a boutique second location in Miami’s Design District; the haven for entertainment, art and fashion.
Retreat to the spa for a massage, like the Bergamot & Lemongrass stress release and a variety of body treatments, including Fennel Cleansing Cellulite & Colon Therapy, or pamper your visage with one of Brownes & Co.’s facials, which use YON-KA, Elemis, Dr. Hauschka and MD Skincare products. After a haute season on the beach, stick with spray-on bronzing (yes, available at Brownes) and opt for the Darphin facial, aromatic with ylang-ylang and sweet orange, for an intensive anti-wrinkle treatment proffering instant results. Hair removal, scrubs and body wraps polish off the spa menu.
