The staff at Sun Solution may ask you to remove your shoes when you enter the shop, but it’s not because they’re concerned about dirt. Instead, they want you to feel the soothing heat that rises from the heated tile floors that cover the entryway. These staffers are experts at using gentle heat and light to their clients’ advantage. The infrared body wraps help clients detox and manage stress and pain. These body wraps also encourage weight loss.
Sun Solution has provides tanning services. They use Smart Tan certifications to chart the best tanning plan for their skin type and color goals. They then select options from a fleet of equipment that includes lay-down, standup, and upside-down tanning booths, as well as a Versa Spa spray-tanning machine, which administers a full-body spray tan in 46 seconds. Clients looking to ensure a deeper, more even tan can opt to start by hopping in the studio's hydration station, where a 20- to 30-minute session can help promote better absorption of nutrients and products, and also help skin adopt a softer, firmer appearance.
In a sunny room above Sleepy Dog Coffee, Wendy Wiltfong pulls back the curtains on the windows to the soul. The owner and dexterous aesthetician at Feather Skin & Body Studio specializes in enhancing peepers, particularly eyelashes. She is so keen on them that she became certified in the application of Xtreme Lashes extensions and also learned how to dye eyelashes with LashDip after watching clients inscribe their eyelids with teenage poetry to make them appear darker and their gazes more intense. Also an avid student of skincare, Wendy earned a certification from PCA Skin to vivify and cleanse complexions. Wendy uses tonics from the paraben- and sulfate-free Farmhouse Fresh line to refresh skin all over the body, and her knowledge of the Alexandria sugaring technique eases the pain of whisking hair from tender areas.
In a chic, pink-hued space with natural-wood floors, The Beauty Room's stylists and aestheticians beautify clients with a range of professional skin and haircare treatments. They use brands trusted for their results, including American Crew, Bare Minerals, and Morrocanoil, as well as Bumble and bumble styling products, which are designed to be mixed and layered to create custom hair effects or give house plants more of a punk-rock look. Additional skin services include microdermabrasion, which removes dead skin cells; photo rejuvenation, which diminishes scars and discoloration; and microcurrent treatments, which awaken collagen-producing cells.
The fronds of live plants sway in the air amid neutral-toned walls, soft lighting, and area rugs, all of which give DermaGlow’s interior a homey atmosphere that juxtaposes with the sharp and professional skills of its staff. Aestheticians lend skin a radiant glow with a range of services—they don’t stop at tanning. Organic Dermaquest products empower facials as they work to reduce signs of sun damage and aging, and peels and microdermabrasions delve deeper into epidermal layers. Botanical spray tans burnish skin with a glow, and professional makeup artists beautify blinks with Novalash eyelash extensions.
In the heart of the midtown business district, Face Forward pampers visages with holistic, noninvasive skin care. Paraben-free and humanely produced salves from house skincare brand DermaQuest Skin fuel facials, chemical peels, and everyday handshakes. Waxers specialize in Brazilian-style hair removal, using a hard, less painful French wax and coaching clients through the process with ample education.
The tanning experts at Color Me Tan keep hides sporting golden hues year-round with their multiple levels of UV tanning beds. Their spray-tan booths, on the other hand, eschew ultraviolet rays and instead use tanning solution to coat epidermal expanses with a natural-looking, streak-free glow. The shop equips visitors with products that aid in the tanning process on beaches or at home. Aside from body bronzing, Color Me Tan further beautifies bodies with teeth-whitening treatments and noninvasive red-light therapy, which makes mature skin appear more youthful and less prone to discussing mortgage rates at parties.
