When the staffers at Desert Sun Tanning Salons say they can fix your problems with a cocktail, they?re not talking about libations. Instead, they?re referring to a method that combines two types of bronzing styles. After lying in a traditional sunbed, patrons pop into an automatic spray-tanning booth. The idea is that the UV rays in the bed trigger melanin production and open the pores so that the spray tan goes on darker and lasts longer. Of course, customers can indulge in either of these options separately, choosing from a fleet of machinery that includes Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless tanning booths and silver-, gold-, and platinum-level sunbeds.
They can also undergo a session that doesn?t change the skin?s tone, but, rather, tones it. Red-light therapy drenches the skin in fluorescent light that boosts collagen production in order to firm skin, tighten muscles, and transform sagging bloomers into boxer briefs. Regular salon visitors can consider purchasing a membership, which entitles them to tanning-bed upgrades and discounts on skincare products.
Floor-to-ceiling windows illuminate deep-orange walls, all of which are dutifully reflected in the salon's faux-marble tiles. Amid these modern accents, licensed cosmetologists nix fuzz from brow fringes with specialty wax sessions and revamp strands with European cut-and-color techniques. Clients also may retreat to a private room for a relaxing tan, or request nail art in the form of butterflies, roses, or close-ups of Mona Lisa's bling teardrop tattoo.
H3 Therapy's specialized hyperbaric treatment may be based on a complex scientific principle, but its main ingredient is simple: oxygen. First, the inflating chamber is infused with filtered air that pressurizes the immediate atmosphere. As the pressure increases, oxygen gently pushes its way into the client's bloodstream. According to the system's technicians, this oxygen boost helps the body heal and may even ease symptoms associated with autism, multiple sclerosis, and sports injuries. The chamber can be depressurized and opened from within, and it features a buzzer that occupants can push for help at any time. With these two exceptions, hyperbaric therapy is completely hands-free, so clients can spend the session winding down with a book or trying to connect with their spirit animal.

When Frida Emalange opened her first salon in 2001, she recognized the need for a salon in the area that would cater to clients with all types of hair. Now, with her dream salons, Zorganics Health & Beauty, she continues this mission, along with using and selling a line of natural, organic products. Drawing inspiration from Zora—the name of Frida’s daughter, as well as a word meaning “dawn” or “rising sun”—the stylists work to make each client’s hair and skin look and feel as lovely as the sunrise. Along with hair care that includes couture haircuts, Keratin treatments, cornrows, and full weaves, the staff members pamper nails and skin with organic spa treatments. They also bundle their services into pampering packages that may include candle lit massage, which is what George Washington called it when he cleaned his musket.
