Executive Tans’ friendly, Smart Tan–certified staff guides customers through six different levels of tanning beds seven days a week. From basic 15-minute systems to advanced high-pressure tanners, each bed is located in a room that's also equipped with satellite radio. Instead of exposing their skin to UV rays or waiting for a bear hug from King Midas, customers can turn to a trained technician for a sunless spray tan. Using a fast-acting formula that simultaneously firms up skin thanks to an antioxidant-packed solution, bronzing levels can be customized for each individual's skin tone.
Since the first Fantastic Sams salon opened its doors 35 years ago, stylists at each locally owned and operated franchise have stayed up to date on the latest industry trends. Before each haircut, a stylist shampoos the scalp for three minutes to relieve tension and cleanse the mane of any gels or Gak. In addition to coiffing or coloring tresses, stylists trim beards and mustaches and wax lips and eyebrows. An exclusive line of shampoos, conditioners, and styling products nourish hair with pro-vitamins, soy protein, and silicone.
Tan 999 Unlimited helps clients stay bronzed with state-of-the-art equipment. MyMyst Mystic Tan spray booths coat bodies with golden tanning spray, which yields a long-lasting and healthy-looking bronze skin tone. Tan 999 also offers vertical and lie-down booths with various wattage settings, allowing clients to get darker, cleaner-looking tans in less time.
Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, L.A. Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or Versa Spa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
Laura B Salon’s owner, Melissa Pounds—who shared a bevy of beauty advice in the January 2011 issue of Quintessential Barrington—helms a crew of trained stylists armed with products from brands such as Wella, INOA, and Moroccanoil. Beauty-seekers can rejuvenate during custom services ranging from VersaSpa sunless tanning and full-body waxing to ammonia-free hair-coloring treatments. Under the bright light that trickles down from silver chandeliers, hairstylists trim tendrils into flattering ’dos as patrons relax in white leather chairs, periodically checking an oval, silver-framed mirror for any evidence that their face might be secretly concealing an outlawed expression.
No Tan Lines brings the beach to the 'burbs by providing its clients with a fleet of UV and UV-free tanning beds and products. Eight styles of UV-tanning beds line the boutique salon including a high-pressure Magic 636 HP bed, which boasts a non-claustrophobic design and adjustable cooling fans, and a Saturn Vertical HP that helps clients tan the hard-to-reach areas such as the sides of the torso or underneath their angel wings. For a sunless experience, clients can hop into an automated VersaSpa spray-tan booth as it quickly and evenly applies a DHA-based bronzer, or rest on a plush treatment bed as a Formostar body wraps helps contour physiques with infrared heat.
