Experienced staff at Quick Tone Fitness & Tanning Center takes over solar duties with a variety of services to bronze skin. During spray-tanning sessions, specialists cloak physiques in even coats of paraben- and perfume-free Sun FX potions brewed from purified water and natural ingredients. Sun FX tanning solutions react with the amino acids in skin to leave a tan with the even gold hue of King Midas' stress ball. In traditional UV-tanning sessions, guests may swaddle complexions within Level 3 beds or high-intensity Level 6 beds with 360 degrees of glowing rays. Patrons gain evening access to Quick Tone Fitness & Tanning Center, which requires only a personal security code that doubles as a Morse-code theme song.
Hollywood Tan's 11 locations help Midwesterners stay tan year-round—even under their parkas. They accomplish this using equipment such as standup capsules, tanning beds, and Mystic Tan booths, the latter of which bronzes hides using an aloe vera–based spray solution instead of UV rays or a mysterious candy-factory bubblegum that turns obnoxious children tan. Off to the side, lotions stand at attention on shelves, ready to help clients maintain their tan and keep their skin moisturized.
In a chic studio ornamented with used guitars and old records, The Best Little Hair House's staff of well-trained stylists and aestheticians conjures relaxation with a catalogue of soothing spa and salon services. During the 60- to 75-minute custom facial, a visage-buffing artisan crafts an indulgent treatment to amplify each client's complexion, beginning with a custom-blended deep-pore cleansing. After scouring dermal manholes, an exfoliation purges toxins to surround smiling devices with a luminous epidermis. Clients receive a tension-taming massage of the face, neck, and shoulders, and a blended serum corrects imperfections and wards off the spirits of pimples gone by. The custom facial concludes with a Bioelements mask, which, once removed, reveals a smoother, healthier visage free of footprints from nesting birds.
Led by Steven and Markita Holloway, the team at Studio 6 Salon & Spa works together to provide budget-friendly beautification services that have caught the attention of magazines such as Essence and Salon Sense. Stylists craft the latest hair designs, ranging from spiral perms to bonded or sewn-in weaves. The spa's tranquil, sea-green-toned ambiance, abundance of plants, and comfortable armchairs create a relaxing background for mani-pedis as well as facials, body wraps, and waxing services.
Couples can enjoy an aromatherapy or hot-stone massage together in a private room. For larger groups, the crew offers spa packages or parties for little princesses complete with wands, robes, and pointers on how to dance in glass slippers.
While everyone can check their weight by stepping on a scale, not everyone loses weight easily or the same way. At Good Life Nutrition, registered nurse and certified health coach Tracey Berry recognizes this, and provides her clients with personalized weight loss plans. Her regimens can incorporate custom meal plans, whole-foods-only cleanses, and noninvasive i-Lipo treatments, which slim body circumferences with low-level lasers, rather than by wearing belts around every body part.
