Tan LA's Smart Tan–certified staff takes pride in matching each body with its perfect tanning method. Its customized tanning programs begin with an analysis of each client's skin type to determine which of the shop's meticulously maintained European beds is best suited to their needs. With four levels of intensity and exposure times ranging from 9 to 20 minutes, the studio is able to cater to complexions from fair to olive, whereas talented airbrush technicians offer custom-blended solutions for those who prefer not to be exposed to bulbs or their annoying sunny dispositions.
Beyond bronzing, Tan LA keeps the beach-bound looking their best with advanced spa services that range from cellulite-shrinking Formostar body wraps to red-light anti-aging therapies that, like profound Pink Floyd lyrics, penetrate 8 to 10 millimeters below the skin’s surface, working to boost blood flow and stimulate collagen growth
Summer Breeze offers high-quality body bronzing and spa services in a sleek, relaxed, and trendy atmosphere. Clients can repose as they soak up the rays in UV beds or enhance their natural skin tone with a UV-free, airbrush tanning alternative. In addition to boasting traditional bronzing services, Summer Breeze pampers guests with an array of spa services, including infrared body wraps, facials, and microdermabrasion. This 22-room salon's recent aesthetic expansion has kept technicians brightening beauty beyond the surface for all guests.

Vie the Spa is an exclusive women’s spa that caters to female well-being with body-swaddling detoxifying wraps. Developed by biochemists from UCLA Medical Center, the herbal formulation of a M’lis Detox Contour wrap encourages circulatory lymphatic flow, which cleanses tissues without laundry detergent guesswork. Clients relax in a warm cocoon that keeps the skin and body hydrated as cellulite dissipates and up to 14 inches melt away from forms like butter on a Saharan sidewalk.
After more than three decades in the industry, Claudette Gentle has become fluent in more than a few hairstyling and cosmetic treatments. Her undisputed specialty, however, is skincare.
Inside her studio at Willem Hair Design, Claudette treats skin issues with advanced treatments such as nonsurgical enzyme face-lifts and peels that incorporate pumpkin or glycolic acid. Though these peels effectively resurface and strengthen skin, Claudette knows they aren’t for everyone. For those with more sensitive skin, she performs a manual method known as dermaplaning. Wielding a sterile surgical blade or electric instrument, she carefully removes dead skin cells, fine facial hairs, and alien facehuggers to promote a glowing complexion.
