South Tampa beauty bar opens with more relaxing options

TAMPA — When Kelly Newton picked South Tampa for her second Clean Beauty Bar location, she added another way for clients to relax — in a tub surrounded by jets.

"It's a commercial grade tub. It's not like the usual jets you have at home," Newton said. "We have bath cures that help with arthritis and sore muscles. These are services you won't find at our Winter Park location."

Those services include a sweet birch magnesium bath cure, followed by a deep tissue massage, a rest bath cure with hydrotherapy and a detox bath cure with hydrotherapy.

Other services unique to the South Tampa location are a vitamin A booster and a rosemary citron sea salt scrub.

All the scrubs and soaks are made in-house with essential oils.

Essential oils are even pumped into each of the private rooms so clients can get a massage infused by the scent of lavender or the aroma of peppermint.

Newton also carries a selection of organic and natural skin care, candles, home diffusers and an essential-oil bar where clients can custom blend their own oils.

Both locations offer manicures and pedicures, facials, massages, waxing and eyebrow and lash services.

For manicures and pedicures, the spa only uses one brand — Londontown.

"It's really hip with celebrities right now," Newton said. "It was created by a lady who was pregnant and wanted a healthy alternative to nail polish. It lasts 10 to 14 days and wears like a gel without the UV light and chemicals. It actually helps your nails."

Newton opened her first location in Winter Park last November and is planning to open the next one in St. Petersburg.

"I've been in the beauty industry running salons and spas practically my whole life," Newton said. "I'm also a talent agent representing child models and actors, which kind of goes along with the whole beauty thing."

The kick-off to Clean Beauty Bar's grand opening is 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 24 at 3115 W Bay to Bay Blvd. Those who attend will receive complimentary Earl Grey lavender lemonade, chocolate sea salt, coconut lime and tangerine cream popsicles from Whatever Pops.

The spa is currently operating in soft opening stages so clients are able to book appointments and take advantage of special first-time discounts.
