Becky Bachtold is a fully licensed aesthetician with more than 16 years of experience. Her swift spray tans are available out of Grand Avenue Salon, or as a mobile service where she arrives directly at the client’s doorstep. Using a 100% organic aloe-based solution, Becky can promote a 10-day sun-kissed complexion without the harmful effects of UV rays. Clients may also solicit Becky for an invigorating facial, or a private waxing session to vanquish the body’s unflattering fuzz.
Tryst's crew of experienced aestheticians bestows faces with an anti-aging and purifying treatment, imbuing skin with a youthful, healthy glow. Pelt polishers revitalize skin with Éminence Organic Skin Care's yam-and-pumpkin enzyme peel, scrubbing faces with a soothing fruit salad of vitamins and enzymes to improve skin's appearance and chances of convincing bartenders that it is underage. A skin-smoothing squad of pumpkin, pineapple, papaya, and yam purées unites to battle wrinkles, desiccation, and grime, exorcizing the lingering spirits of dead skin cells unable to cross over. The treatment plumps hides, diminishes wrinkles, and shrinks pores, leaving skin looking vibrant and refreshed.
Facelogic Spa offers customized spa services administered by licensed skincare professionals in 16 locations sprinkled across 12 states. Facials for men, women, and teens are the spa's specialty, meticulously tailored to each guest's skin type using the results of a through skincare analysis, questionnaire, and brief slide show of their changing yearbook photos. The Facelogic signature facial awakens slumbering skin through 50 minutes of deep cleansing, exfoliation, steam, optional extractions, and mask therapy, while Elite facials incorporate added age reversers such as microdermabrasion, algae peel-off masks, and serums from brands such as Image skincare. Following each treatment, aestheticians offer cosmetic touch-ups before providing helpful tips for maintaining skin at home.

Large, shimmering windows form the façades of each Vicara salon, granting glimpses of Aveda-trained stylists poring over clients' every hairdo detail. The sound of scissor clips and conversation, along with the fresh scents of naturally-derived Aveda products, permeate Vicara, where professionals renovate appearances with haircuts, tailored color sessions, retexturizing treatments, and extensions that add bulk and body to hair without adding whey protein. Aestheticians groom guises with skincare treatments, including facials and waxing. A choice of complimentary treats rides shotgun with all services and may include skincare consultations, an application of Pure-Fume natural scents, or a steaming cup of stress-relieving tea.
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.
