There's more than one way to tan a hide, and Sun Touch Tanning provides a slew of them. With 12-minute VHR tanning beds and 9-minute Sun Capsule standup booths in its glow-giving arsenal, clients receive tans with some of the latest in UV technology. But since UV tanning isn't for everyone, so Sun Touch Tanning also gilts tanners with spray tans applied by certified technicians. Those same techs can travel to homes for private spray-tan parties to coat party-goers in solutions that leave skin one to two shades darker. Parties can even include solutions that set in one hour, making them ideal for a bachelorette party, girls' night out, or Come as Your Favorite Wood costume gala.
At Styleout Bar, clients won't find odorous dyes or lopped-off locks littering the floors. That's because Styleout specializes in blowouts, creating signature looks, such as Icon and Muse. The beauty bar offers other services, though. Technicians gloss nails with coats of shiny enamel, remove unwanted hair with precision threading, or restore hair's health with scalp and tress treatments.
As if to complement its view of the harbor, Aria Salon & Spa immerses guests in oceanic serenity. One of its body treatments begins with exfoliating salts from the Dead Sea, then cocoons clients in a Hawaiian seaweed mask. Nails can benefit from the same mask during a Caribbean therapy treatment, whose tropical ingredients—mango and cocoa butter among them—soften the skin alongside scented paraffin wax. The ocean even appears on the massage table: a detoxifying back massage employs marine products that refresh the back, scalp, feet, and fin.
Of course, not every treatment calls upon briny remedies. The salon segment of the venue administers blow-dries, haircuts, and color treatments. Makeup artists highlight features with Aveda products, whereas estheticians combat acne and signs of aging with a menu of facials. The Radiant facial, for example, evens out the skin's surface with botanical extracts and the mineral tourmaline, providing a gentler alternative to microdermabrasion or practicing your eskimo-kisses on a tree.

A bold red couch jumps out against white walls like a fire hydrant in fresh snow to signal the vivid nail painting going on in the studio.

Salon LaRue's staff preps hands and feet for prettier punches and kicks with a classic one-hour manicure and pedicure. First, hands and feet are dunked in a soothing soak until their nails agree to soften up enough for clipping and filing. After the nail wizards have pushed overly assertive cuticles back to their proper positions, they'll exfoliate, massage, and moisturize hands and feet. Nail beautification culminates with a coat of OPI nail polish, leaving fingers and toes ready to dazzle every keyboard and sidewalk in sight.
