Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, LA 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 VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
The trained tress-tamers at Salon Lofts know how to snip, dye, and charm the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and Medusa head-snakes. Specialists can expertly install partial weaves ($85), add accent color to colloquial coiffures ($65+), and strap in shine with a super-shine gloss treatment seatbelt ($45+). Or opt for nail services and enjoy expertly manicured finger lawns and toe topiaries ($40+ for a spa manicure and pedicure) (services and prices may vary by location). Call ahead or go online to schedule your appointment.
At the vanguard of skin-saving technology, the SilkPeel stimulates damaged epidermises to produce healthful collagen and deliver therapeutic ingredients, such as vitamins and antioxidants, to torpid skin cells. A particle-free and personalized microdermabrasion, the SilkPeel eschews one-size-fits-all dermatology in favor of treatments tailored to each client's skin condition. Veteran aesthetician Tiffany Shoup, who has 10 years of experience, uses a specialized hand piece and serum to navigate face maps while improving acne-prone skin, moisturizing dry patches, and brightening dull complexions.
The body-bronzing gadgets at Extreme Tans tint epidermises with a splash of sun-smooched color. Tanners can opt for the UV-free airbrush tan to daydream about Helios’s sabbaticals on the sun as the Fantasy Tan spray-dances across the skin, creating an even tan in 20 minutes. With seven different skin-brightening solutions, the spray is customized to each skin type and tone, leaving bodies ready for head-turning sidewalk struts.
Your hair’s sure to feel silkier once your stylist conditions it—learn why with Groupon’s close-up look at conditioner.
Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer—the cuticle—is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules, called cationic surfactants, to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair—the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.)
The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.
