The tanning methods at Infinite Tan not only eschew orange streaks, but also avoid unnatural chemicals. Guests can visit the salon or opt for its mobile services at their own homes to acquire tawny hues by way of professional-grade HVLP spray. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete and results in an even, natural-looking tan.
The professional pamperers at Amplify Tanning, Nails, & More impart long-lasting shine to fingertips and toe-tips with mani-pedis performed using polishes from CND Shellac. After shaping nails and caring for cuticles, nail techs revive worn-out appendage ends with an exfoliating scrub, which reveals fresh, soft skin and removes hastily scrawled to-do lists. Hot towels envelop hands as calluses are swiftly evicted from each softened slipper-stuffer, and manicurists move to unknot muscles from both extremities with a relaxing massage. Finally, each newly groomed digit is capped with a colorful swipe of CND Shellac polish, which is formulated to resist chips, scratches, and TV infomercials for up to 14 days.
TAN'R YOU was voted the Best Tanning in Milwaukee for 2008 and 2009 by CityVoters, who cited its accommodating facilities and fully air-conditioned tanning beds. A gold-colored floor ushers pale hides down a hallway of individual bronzing rooms stocked with top-of-the-line pigmentation machinery. The High Pressure MATRIX bed is an import from Italy that tans in 12 minutes while treating clients to music from its CD player / stereo and using high-pressure negotiating tactics to send paleness packing. For those who have already positioned their real sleeping bed directly under their bedroom's sunniest window, the Cabana Mist tanning booth provides a convenient vertical service while evenly painting the body with smooth shades of spring and summer.
From within The Red House's elegant, relaxing atmosphere, Creative Cut Hair Salon has been beautifying nails for 35 years. A mani-pedi emboldens phalanges by first trimming and filing the nails, then cutting cuticles into dazzling uniformity. Before finishing everything off with an expertly applied layer of nail polish, the talented staff dole out a light hand and foot massage, making the whole experience a great gift for Mother's Day or a gratifying lunch-break activity with dad during Bring Your Daughter to Work Day. Like 30 back-to-back rides through the Tunnel of Love, the whole service should last around 90 minutes.
During her 10 years as a massage therapist, Jan Thompson began to see more and more cases of sun-damaged skin. Because she wanted the best for her clients, she founded Gold-n-Glow Sunless Tanning Spa as a sanctuary for those looking for a bronzed glow without the risks of UV tanning. Jan uses Norvell Skin Solutions and St. Tropez products to evenly spritz the skin during airbrush-tanning sessions, which deliver a natural-looking hue without the streaks associated with at-home creams or faulty highlighter pens. Seven types of massage therapy, as well as ear candling, body wraps, and Super Sunless tanning complement the tanning service.
If you opt for a full month of sun-soakedness, you'll get access to any of U Tan's beds. The state-of-the-art bronzing abode boasts four horizontal and one stand-up faux-sun soaker. The beds are clean and comfortable, and there's complimentary male/female deodorant and body spray in every room. If you opt for a UV-free melanin marinade, one of U Tan's pigment perfectionists will evenly spritz your skin with a safe, golden hue, giving it a natural glow rather than drowning it with a wash of orange that causes the other kids on the bus to call you Nickelodeon. U Tan's friendly staffers offer clients a bottle of water after each tan, so you'll never get dehydrated and try to bite raindrops. Spray tans are by appointment only; the tanning beds are available by appointment or walk-in. U Tan is open late (until 11 p.m.) when school is in session to restore the golden glow of students, nighthawks, and moonbeams.
