An abundance of hanging lamps light up this trendy salon, but it's the lamps inside the tanning beds that really pack a punch. Set inside private treatment rooms, six types of beds blast clients with just the right amount of rays, with options for developing base tans or even deeper hues. Clients can also step into the UV-free Mystic Tan booth for a gentle mist of streak-free color.
A one-stop beauty shop, True Colors Concept Salon and Spa offers hairstyling and nailcare. Clients can get their split ends snipped or change their hair color with highlights. They can also get their ragged cuticles trimmed or adorn their nails with polish, which is a more professional option than eating Cheetos until your fingernails turn orange.
Bolstered by a fleet of five tanning-bed styles and a spray-tanning service, the friendly, knowledgeable staff at Sun Haven Tanning helps sun seekers revitalize their faded façades. Bed varieties vary by location, but both stores house sleek, up-to-date stand-up and lay-down units. Level one sun sponges can succumb to horizontal urges in a lay-down Fiesta bed for one 20-minute-maximum session ($6) or darken themselves with an unlimited number of sessions for five weeks ($50). The Matrix stand-up bed, a level four ultraviolet-equipped tube complete with a built-in fan, radio, and amateur stand-up comedian, can be enjoyed for 12 minutes at a time for up to 13 sessions ($28–$165).
It's clear from the name that Tanz & Things specializes in helping clients achieve rich skin tones via tanning beds and custom airbrush sprays. But what about the second half of that name—what could "Things" be referring to? As it turns out, quite a lot. If you need a mani-pedi to match that luxurious tan, look no further than spa technician Melissa Calame. Melissa's treatments extend far beyond standard nail services, and include Shellac manicures that protect against chipping for up to two weeks. Melissa even has special treatments for children 12 and younger, so nobody has to show up at a stuffed-animal tea party looking less than their best.
City Tan & Spa hues and nurtures both skin and body. Its trained staff bronzes hides with sunless spray tans as well as beds. UV options include the Ergoline Avantgarde 600 Turbo, a bed replete with cooling features and a music system. To keep skin vibrant and healthy, the spa also provides products from such brands as Pauly D and Lively. Besides tans, City Tan & Spa enhances physiques with body wraps, as well. Its Fit wraps contour figures and burn up to 1,400 calories per session.
The staff at The Slim Co use a non-invasive Body Light system for patients' body-contouring needs. Using gentle LED lasers, the treatment helps dispel stubborn inches from common target areas, such as the midsection, arms, back, buttocks, and thighs. Meanwhile, whole body vibration machines strengthen and tone muscles and aim to speed up fat loss, removing fat naturally through the lymphatic system as clients relax to music or nature sounds.
