You might think that standing up while you tan would cause an unnaturally darkened scalp, but this never happens at Hollywood Tans. That's because their arsenal of signature stand-up tanning booths create an always even, natural-looking glow in as little as seven minutes. With more than 140 locations nationwide, the chain’s salons—each a veritable bronze mine for pale bodies—can also bronze physiques Mystic Tan’s Instant Tan, a sunless formula that does not contain UV-rays or infectious California boy-band harmonies. Voted "Favorite Tanning Salon in North Jersey" by an independent readers' poll in Suburban Trends magazine, Hollywood Tans of Riverdale can also help customers choose the Instant Tan formula best suited to them, matching the bronzing serums to the each person's skin tone, type, and ideal look.
The team at Bella Organici LLC takes organic culture seriously. That's why every one of their products is 100% organic, no small feat at a tanning salon. In fact, none of their products have even been animal tested, either. Their work helps clients circumvent the inconvenience of tanning beds and outdoor sunbathing to achieve a nice bronze. The salon's tanning sprays react with the skin’s chemistry to create natural-looking color that lasts for up to two weeks. To boot, their at-home tanning events transform solitary beauty work into a party, prepping a group of friends for a day at the beach and helping the homeowner become invisible in front of their bronze walls. Bella Organici's other services also work to beautify skin, with facials, exfoliating scrubs, and waxing.

With whimsical wall decals, pink and white draperies, and treatment beds upholstered in shimmering satin, Stylash looks more like a doll's dream house than a stuffy salon. It's a fitting setting for the shop's aestheticians, who use hypoallergenic glue and an extra-light touch to doll up lash lines with long, individual eyelash extensions that can last up to one month. But the comfy, feminine atmosphere also serves a purpose—the more relaxed clients are, the better their eyelashes adhere. To that end, the staff recommends that clients keep talking and yodeling to a minimum during application and encourages them to bring in personal music players to help quiet their minds.
