Boca Tanning Club salons bronze clients with the help of super tanning beds and booths, as well as UV-free VersaSpa spray-tanning booths. Clients walk past the painted vines, rocks, and rainforest-themed decor before stepping into the spray-tanning booths, which gild limbs in 60 seconds, or into a super bed, which caramelizes skin in less time than a traditional bed. In private rooms, technicians wielding airbrush systems custom shade and contour muscles while de-emphasizing vestigial tails.
For the past 20 years, the International Hair and Barber Academy has helped fledgling stylists master the art of trimming. Hands-on training gives students professional supervision as they practice their arts on the real-live hairs of the public. The institution also offers refresher courses for beauty professionals who have gotten out of practice.
The staff at Boca Anti-Aging & Aesthetics doesn't just remove the signs of aging from clients' faces—they may also help them attain more youthful figures through a weight-loss program or HCG therapy. The aestheticians treat men and women with a comprehensive approach, which could include the bioidentical treatment. This program analyzes individuals' saliva, blood, and dreams for their medical, family, and personal histories. It subsequently uses the information for nutritional planning and hormone balancing. For a smaller-scale, but noticeable change, clients can opt for microdermabrasion or specialty facials that plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Squares of sunlight filter into Wild Hare Salon & Spa through floor-to-ceiling windows, illuminating black salon chairs resting on a tan floor of the 6,500-square-foot studio. For the past 25 years Wild Hare stylists have cut, color, and smoothed out frizzy strands with a special ventilation system and OHSA-approved formulas, while clients gaze outside at a serene lake or glance into a free standing mirror which lets them check the progress. In addition to hair services, the skilled staff also offer mani-pedis, waxing treatments, and facials. Yet no matter the service they are performing, seven days a week the multi-national staff of 45-plus employees is dedicated to giving clients a relaxing, positive experience that results in a transformed look.
