At Visible Changes Salon & Day Spa, clients can address all their aesthetic needs with services ranging from mani-pedis to eyelash and hair extensions. Friendly stylists skillfully snip and style locks using high-quality products from Pureology and Coppola. Some of the stylists have 30 years of experience with color and cuts, and can deftly clip styles ranging from trendy to classic to Jetsons?esque. Elsewhere in the spacious, 5,700-square-foot facility, numerous treatment rooms beautify guests and cancel out stress with private tanning rooms, airbrush spray tans, threading, massages, and anti-aging facials.
Suntrenz spans two floors, both of which are dedicated to making clients look their best by imparting them with a healthy-looking glow. The studio's roster of equipment includes UV tanning beds and booths from manufacturers such as Lotus and GardaSun, plus an airbrush unit that gently mists a bronzing solution and emits an adorable purring sound. Suntrenz's team also extends to massage therapists and medical technicians experienced in Botox.
Eliana and Viviane Jardim grew up on the beaches of Brazil, and when they moved to the United States, they brought a little bit of the Brazilian sun with them. The business they opened, Samba Glow, specializes in personalized airbrush spray tans. Armed with a spray applicator, technicians apply either a clear solution that develops over the course of 8–10 hours or a bronzer that’s visible right away. The DHA-based formula for each is free of harsh chemicals, preservatives, white tempera paint, and artificial fragrances, leaving room for certified-organic aloe-vera extracts, vitamin A, vitamin E, and various antioxidants that help leave skin firm and smooth. At their new Menlo Park location, the Jardim sisters decided to branch out into other beautification services—such as waxing and a full lash and brow bar—as well as retail, selling bathing suits and resort-wear designed to show off the tanning techs’ handiwork.
The Smart Tan?certified staffers at Ingrid's Suntanning work to safely bronze skin, whether they?re offering UV-free spray tans or monitoring bulb intensity in one of the beds or booths. They maintain tanning beds with open-style bronzing that obviates any claustrophobic feelings as well as beds equipped with televisions that allow for the enjoyment of favorite channels. The team also offers a color moods light-therapy tanning enhancement that surrounds clients with their choice of colors, ranging from pink for happy to green for schadenfreude. For UV-free tanning, the skilled technicians use the Norvell airbrush system to carefully contour curves and muscles for a 100% custom experience. They also present the Mystic Tan booth, which coats skin with one shot in a uniform glow.
When the sky is cloudy or filled with locusts, clients duck into Electric Beach to bronze their bodies with the glowing bulbs of Dr. Mueller beds. The beds come in high-, medium-, and low-pressure models, and their strengths range from less than 1% emitted UVB rays to 5% emitted UVB rays. Alternatively, the Magic Tan booth uses 37 spray nozzles to mist the body with an even coat of color in less than a minute.
The wattage on Tan Line Salon’s beds goes up to 20,000. Its five levels of beds begin at Level 1, which offers 20- and 10-minute tans. From there, the beds progress to include more than 10 units including Level 3 and 4 Ergoline Avant Garde beds and a Level 5 Omega high-pressure bed. They also offer sunless airbrush tans and facilitate bronze boosts with myriad products, such as accelerators and bronzers from brands such as Supre and Designer Skin.
