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
Unless you're an identical twin, no one has a face like yours. That's why licensed aesthetician Tiffany Mastrovito tailors her facials to the distinct needs of each client. In the comfort of her cozy studio, Tiffany can promote relaxation with an aromatherapy skincare treatment, or restore the complexion with a powerful multivitamin facial. Clients may also solicit a specialty wax to remove unwanted hair from legs and eyebrows.

At La Bella Salon, stylists cut hair for both children and adults. They also specialize in more elaborate ‘dos, including wedding-day styles and Brazilian Blowouts, which leave hair sleeker, shinier, and, often, straighter, for up to 12 weeks.
When it comes to her clients’ hair, stylist Michellina Gonzales does not shy away from color. She happily adds anything from golden highlights to kelly-green streaks to all-over color in deep burgundy. Her eye for trendy styles also includes updos for special occasions and keratin smoothing treatments that leave hair as straight and clean as a baby’s driving record.
