In the heart of the U-Med business district, Face Forward pampers visages with holistic, noninvasive skin care with natural plant and mineral skincare products.

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.
Artful nails may take center stage at Hot Tips, but that doesn't mean they get all the attention. When they aren't busy creating custom nail designs or applying acrylic tips, the shop's aestheticians ten to the rest of the body's beauty needs. After waxing away stubble from the brows, underarms, legs, or back, they help customers show off newly smooth contours by steering them toward a sunless spray tanning system that hydrates as it bronzes. Lashes and brows may be tinted to match a new hair color or to convince strangers that you really are a natural blue-nette, while trained technicians can also apply single synthetic lashes to give lend an added dose of drama to every wink.

In a studio set to 95 degrees––or about 308 Kelvin––they follow a tough series of poses inspired by Bikram, ashtanga, and kundalini yoga.
