Hidden within a bland office complex, Toccare Spa & Salon offers a chic-yet-warm oasis from the Westchase rat race. The more than 4,000-square-foot facility looks like the "after" of a Nate Berkus makeover. It's divided into smaller treatment spaces, the highlights of which include dry cedar saunas, Spanish tile steam saunas and several salon rooms overseen by owner and master stylist Kay Koh. There's also a private room with couches available for bridal showers and other events. Neutral marble floors spread throughout, making even employees-only areas like the staff kitchen look attractive. Toccare eventually plans to use the kitchen for cooking classes.
For now, Toccare offers hair styling and treatments, makeup application, eyelash and eyebrow tinting, waxing, massages, facials, manicures and pedicures, body wraps, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, organic peels, herbal consultations and salt baths.
