At Sassi Nail and Tanning Lounge, men, women, and teens address beauty and grooming needs with an extensive selection of spa treatments. Custom facials appease individual skin quirks, and six types of massage employ hot stones and deep-tissue techniques to extract tension acquired from giving piggyback rides to lazy shadows. Freshly pampered bodies can imbibe a bronzy glow from spray or UV tanning, and nail techs shape up both natural and artificial nails.
Altima Tan caters to both bed traditionalists and spray enthusiasts with a wide array of bronzing equipment. The Mystic Tan booth quickly spritzes on a golden glow in about a minute's time, and the SunFX airbrush artists paint on a custom hue with a chemical-free tanning solution. Its lie-down and standup beds are all made in the United States, their UV rays enhanced by a selection of tanning lotions, moisturizers, and oils that smell like freedom. For those who just can't warm up with UV rays, the salon offers infrared body wraps, which gently heat insides to aid in detoxification and burn calories.

Telia Anderson, owner of Pink Door Nail & Facial Spa, has been beautifying clients for more than 12 years, though she only opened her own studio a couple of years ago. "I've been doing nails since I was 14," she says. "My hobby turned into my career." She still loves to give a straighforward manicure, citing the service as her favorite part about her job. In addition to shaping and buffing nails, she finishes off her services with a variety of polishes, from durable gels to artificial acrylic sets that add length, colors, and patterns to fingers.
The stylists and aestheticians at Bella Bronze Hair Salon and Tanning Studios strive to create a friendly, upbeat environment for clients who drop in for transformative beauty jaunts. Hair gets a time-out as stylists deftly cut or color it, drawing on their continuing education in the latest techniques as they transform coiffures to clients’ specifications. A nail technician stains talons with salon-caliber acrylics or OPI gels and other services to keep hands looking their best. The salon’s facials and peels rejuvenate all types of skin, which can also darken to a sun-kissed bronze in onsite tanning beds from brands such as Ergoline and Wolff. The SolarForce booth lets guests stay upright while gilding, and VersaSpa spray tanning evades both UV rays and beaches’ suit-snatching tidal waves while turning limbs a glowing copper.
At Club Beauty, wander up and down the cheetah-print stairs of the two-story salon and spa for a day of pampering. Head to the pedicure station, where guests relax on the cushioned-topped bench built into the gray tiled platform and soak their feet in the footbath below. Nearby, a purple velvet dining chair relaxes clients during standard and shellac manicures, and a white brick fireplace is the perfect spot for quickly melting off old polish. The vibrant red, modern chairs in the salon area host clients getting haircuts, extensions, and blowouts.
