Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. Sessions take place in private rooms that line a column-flanked hallway, where five different levels of UV beds give skin the perfect level of tanning. Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless-tanning systems imbue clients with a hydrating, natural-looking glow, which can be customized according to skin tone, desired shade, and spirit animal. A full-time cleaning staff keeps each center in pristine conditions by referencing a 50-point inspection system. Most locations have books, televisions, and kids’ play areas to keep children entertained while adults are bronzing.
The Frame is about as far from the tiled floors and florescent lighting of chain hair salons as you can get. Located in Chino Hills, this upscale boutique hair studio is intimate and luxurious, with soaring ceilings, dripping crystal chandeliers, and dark hardwood floors. For lounging before and after appointments, cushy couches are set along the pale blue and gray walls adorned with black lacquered, intricately-framed mirrors and prints. When clients are ready for their service, they settle into black leather chairs at the shampoo station, and The Frame's licensed stylists go to work. Specializing in rich color services and fashion-forward cuts, the friendly Redken- and Sassoon-trained stylists work with each client, helping to determine the look that will most flatter their face and style. Additional services include Brazilian blowouts and sun-kissed highlights, as well as eyebrow shaping and professional makeup applications for recovering clowns.
Hewing true to Aveda's earth-friendly philosophy and plant-derived products, Vicara's myriad hubs of health revamp visages from within sleek, modern salons. The Pure Focus facial, customized to clients' wants, needs, and moisture-sensitive cybernetic faces, treats head-fronts to a choice of a 30-minute exfoliation, a face-and-neck massage, or aesthetician-helmed corrective techniques for stressed skin. The revitalizing eye treatment hones in on fine lines, puffiness, and the dark circles that tend to grow up around soul-windows. Finally, stylists dip into their wealth of waxing knowledge to sculpt rowdy brows into an elegant contour, like the elements that have weathered Teddy Roosevelt's Mount Rushmore likeness into a sphinx.
Golden Shears Salon & Day Spa treats women and men alike to soothing Aveda salon and spa treatments executed by experienced professionals. Stylists turn locks into silky tresses with botanical therapy or Brazilian blowouts, whereas nail technicians melt away stress with paraffin-wax manicures, and aestheticians rejuvenate skin with face and body treatments.
