Fair-pelted customers choose from a bevy of sun-mirroring options inside the tanning oasis. Amid the interior’s shimmering gold tiles, guests enter Level 1–5 UV beds, inspiring skin to cultivate a bronze hue of its own. Like hand-sculpting one’s own monogrammed towels from marble, spray tanning at bosTAN is a customized process. A technician holds the airbrush tool, releasing the spray exactly where each part of the skin needs it for more effective coverage than a booth-dispatched mist can achieve.

The Salon at 10 Newbury sits at the end of Boston’s toniest street, a stretch of eight blocks packed with upscale boutiques and high-end hair salons. Founded in 1995, the salon, with commanding views of “The Street” as it’s called locally, focuses primarily on hair: regular cuts, curly cuts, dry cuts and even organic single process coloring. For anyone in need, the beauty parlor is also a discreet place to purchase wigs, hairpieces and natural-looking hair extensions. The Salon at 10 Newbury’s hair replacement center is more than discreet; affable stylists consult with customers in an entirely separate area of the salon.
