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.
Potted trees and paintings of scenic getaways welcome visitors into Sundeck Tanning Salon, a beach-themed bronzing studio that is owned and operated by a team of female tanning experts. Posters of bikini-clad beauties provide inspiration to bodies waiting to use the salon's spray-tanning booths and beds, with underlying captions that display tips for maximizing their new glow's lifespan, such as moisturizing it regularly and packing it in ice each night. Tanning products available for purchase lend vibrant pops of color to the shop's clean, white shelves, and include offerings from popular brands such as Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold.
The pedicure pros at Polished Nail Boutique prettify extremities with an array of moisturizing salves and skillful grooming techniques. Choose from a monthly rotating lineup of aromatic themes, such as papaya star, mandarin honey, and white tea, which restore moisture to the skin while making patrons smell like they got into a fistfight with a produce stand. Each nail is pared and filed to the desired shape and length before an exfoliant is rubbed into the hands, feet, and legs, reliving them of dead-skin freeloaders. The adept aesthetician then applies a moisturizing ointment and dips appendages into melted paraffin, coating them in skin-softening wax and eliminating the need to stomp on lit birthday cakes. Finally, muscles de-stress with a leg and arm massage, which is followed by a coat of nail polish in the desired hue. Opt for Shellac or Minx nail art at an additional cost to make nails resemble the stained glass windows of an ant cathedral.
Karen Hawkins, a certified PCA skin representative, incorporates the product line into her facials to gently combat skin problems such as excessive oil or stubborn acne. Working from inside Salon Ventures, she also slathers warm wax over unwanted fuzz on arms, legs, backs, and chests for a smooth finish.
