Texas Tan's two locations each acquaint pallid complexions with a kaleidoscopic array of UV-tanning beds and spray-tanning booths. Like a mansion designed by a Jenga master, the tanning services have multiple levels. Starting at basic bronze beds equipped with external cooling systems, the tanning arsenal ranges all the way to top-of-the-line Platinum beds that tout 360-degree tanning, an MP3-player connection, and facial tanners.
Texas Tan also touts a sunless-spray-tan solution in its VersaSpa tanning booths, which envelop bodies in a golden mist over a mere 46 seconds. Guests step into the airy chambers of the tanning machine, where alternating gusts of pigmented tanning solutions evenly adhere a streak-free bronze to skin. Gilded glows last 5–10 days, allowing patrons ample time to show off their new, natural-looking tans during nights out with friends or while promoting Bikini Awareness Month.
Allen Yoga Center founder and certified instructor Brook Cheatham believes that "Yoga is more than an exercise. It gets into you at the very core of your being … your emotional baggage is stripped away along with your ego.” After years spent as an instructor at various studios, Brook decided to open her own space, where students can reflect on themselves while cultivating their physical and mental well being. The mocha-stained hardwood floors complement the yoga center's warm plum-and-gold walls, which are intentionally bare, hosting only a single portrait of a multilimbed deity, Gary the Octopus. Brook leads classes ranging in intensity from the cardiovascular-stimulating Vinyasa to the restorative and meditative Hatha. Regular workshops welcome guest instructors to educate students on a variety of wellness topics, and the teacher-training program grants knowledge to those who wish to someday lead their own classes.:m]]

During the custom airbrush tan, a professional birthday-suit bronzer will spray each client to the desired level of darkness. The airbrushing applicator ensures an even tone, and the natural-looking solution keeps customers from being mistaken for celebrity sweet potatoes. Customers can also relax in one of Total Tan's many tanning beds, lounging in standard beds for up to 20 minutes or climbing into turbo beds for 15-minute stretches. Leg tanners provide gams with golden hues, and standup beds keep clients from developing dream-cloud-shaped tan lines. Total Tan's most powerful solar simulator, the Super Bed, delivers results in 12 minutes, allowing clients to get home in time for the hugging part of their favorite '90s sitcom.
Avenir Salon focuses its beautification efforts on two key aspects of the body: the skin and the hair. Guests in need of a new look can turn to the talented stylist, who works well with both men’s and women’s hair. For a sun-kissed, yet UV-free bronzing, spray tans darken skin without requiring a trip to the beach. For such sessions, Avenir uses the Infinity Sun spray tan system, the same system used by notable celebs such as Jessica Simpson, Justin Beiber, and King Midas’ postman.
Perfect Tan's airbrush artists swathe skin in custom-blended tanning formulas that enhance beauty and self-confidence without UV exposure. The salon’s technicians show a remarkable concern for detail during spray-tan applications, evenly covering the skin with a DHA-based solution derived from sugar beets. Each appointment consists of a brief consultation, five minutes of spraying, and a warm blast of blow-dryer air. Natural-looking hues, such as cocoa, almond, and deep-fried chocolate, swirl together to create a custom color that radiates from skin for several days. Body butters, sugar scrubs, and moisturizers from brands such as Rain and Jamaica Me Tan line the shelves of the studio's boutique; these and other products can help patrons maintain a healthy, hydrated glow.
