Cosmetologist Nicole loved the look of a natural tan, but wasn’t happy with the damage it could do to skin. Lucky for her, she discovered spray tanning and promptly opened Glam and Glo to provide the skin-safe bronzing service to others. She custom blends her organic solution, taking into consideration each client’s skin tone and envisioned shade of bronze. She then airbrushes the color on by hand to ensure even, full coverage regardless of clients’ existing color or if they're still factory sealed in plastic packaging.
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.
World Tanning's beauty specialists can vouch for the services and products they provide. Before any lotion becomes available to clients, the tanning specialists test it out, evaluating fragrance, appearance, and flavor. If a lotion or oil makes the final cut, patrons can rest assured that it meets or exceeds industry standard. The same goes for World Tanning’s lie-down and standup tanning beds, whose maximum tanning times range from 9 to 20 minutes, as well as the boutique's VersaSpa sunless tanning booths, which bronze clients to the shade of their choice in less than two minutes. A recent addition to World Tanning's service menu, an infrared sauna promotes metabolism as its warm light induces sweating or blinds deep-sea fish.
The walls are watching you––or so it would seem. Framed photos of eyes laden with long, voluminous lashes can be seen throughout each Xtina’s Lash Xtensions' salon. This is the plight of owner Christina Wakulich who decks out eyelid rims with synthetic- and real-mink lash extensions with the help of her highly trained staff. Full sets include range from 45 to 65 lashes per eye, fostering a sultry look for six to eight weeks without the mess of mascara.
Armed with over a combined 25 years of airbrushing experience, Celebrity Skin's staff flawlessly mists skin with a natural, organic tanning spray. The team enlists the skin-coloring power of nontoxic sugars derived from plants such as sugar beets and sugar cane to expertly darken skin with a natural-looking shade of bronze that lasts for 7–10 days. Applied by hand, the mist sheathes clients from head to toe in as little as 25 minutes, or simply enunciates the legs, upper body, or face. The salon also bequeaths clients with pre- and posttan treatments to balance the skin’s natural pH and retain moisture and newly acquired color. The techs can tote their airbrushing equipment to residences for at-home tanning or to national monuments for bronze-statue touchups. Celebrity Skin also offers spa services including lash extensions and waxing.

At Halsted Tan and Spa, Smart Tan–certified staff members help each client navigate high-powered tanning equipment and choose the option that best suits their golden goal. They steer traditional tanners towards lie-down or standup high-pressure beds, such as the SolarForce 648, where side tanners and shoulder tanners help bronze every curve, and built-in stereos flood ears with relaxing music or recordings of George Hamilton reading Goodnight Moon. For a sunless glow, airbrush artists tint skin with a custom paraben-free spray tan, while the VersaSpa booth gilds bodies in a four-pass process that includes a blow-dry and the option to add a pretreatment prep spray and tan-extending moisturizer.
