LA Bronze Ultra Luxe Tanning Studios service tanners on the go and provides a respite for those looking to relax. Inside stand-up booths, clients remain on their feet while up to 60 bulbs create a 360-degree tan. Clients may also choose to stand up for a twelve-minute session inside a warm capsule or choose a bronze hue to have misted on their skin and settling into a sun-kissed glow in three hours. Those looking to enhance their tans can purchase power lotions, bronzers, accelerators, and cooling lotions from the salon’s collection of tanning products.
Better Health Tanning and Nail Spa's aestheticians perform a generous range of services designed to delicately prune and pamper skinscapes. Wielding antibacterial soy wax, seasoned aesthetician Kim Gider clears away unwanted hair by using eyebrow, lip, and Brazilian waxes with a formula that uproots entire follicles, much as gardeners coat weeds and stubborn toads in cream, then yank them swiftly away from flowers. The spa’s strict hygiene policy promises that no waxing wand double-dips into the antimicrobial blend, keeping each client’s skin as clean as possible.
At Salon Sheena Janelle, the young woman watched as two thimble-sized humans began their ascent up her long, straw-colored locks. They had started off slow, testing that the hair could withstand their weight, but now they were really moving—clearing a full inch of vertical distance every 10–12 seconds. On her left earlobe hung a small green flag that read “trim and blow-dry”; on her right, a bright red flag that read “shave head completely.” So far the tiny human on the right seemed to hold a slight advantage, looking, between the two, to be the more experienced climber.
The young woman loved her yellow hair and despaired at the thought of having to shave it off. She watched in dismay as the left climber lagged ever increasingly behind. At one point, he had lost his grip and slid down a full body length. He looked spent, already beaten.
The climber on the right was now even with the corner of her chin, the flag just seconds away. He pulled himself to the side of her mouth as a brief resting place. Without conscious thought, she grabbed his tiny leg with her teeth, then whipped her head to one side and released it. A faint scream receded into the distance. The climber to the left had taken advantage of her head's momentum to swing upward, and he now dangled victoriously from her lobe, green flag in hand.
The stylist poked her head in, "They're done already? So what will it be?"
The young lady smiled, "Trim and blow-dry, please."
Recognized by InStyle magazine as a top tanning spot, Sun Myst Tanning Spa offers a wealth of options for gaining a boast-worthy bronzed veneer. Those seeking a sun-kissed look sans UV can try the MyMyst Mystic Tan booth, which sprays either medium or dark tan solutions over the whole body in a seamless 60-second motion, leaving a streak-free golden glow that can last for up to seven days. Buyers can also drape their dermis with bodily color during a customized airbrush spray tan that is personalized for different skin types and tanning needs, and can last 7–10 days (normally $40 for the first session, $45 for regular sessions). Hue hunters can also ditch their daily bear hugs from the sun and opt for unlimited monthly use of Sun Myst Tanning Spa's state-of-the-art tanning beds.
The epidermal chromatologists at 360 Degree Tans employ multiple techniques and equipment to help customers exude a robust pallor, whether or not the sun is shining. A UV-free organic airbrushing is applied by a certified technician and generally lasts from seven to 10 days, while a booth-tan session is a more traditional means of achieving the kind of healthy glow flaunted by aerobics-instructing dwarf stars.
