The skilled shutterbugs at Mi Amor Studio capture flattering, intimate angles during tasteful boudoir photo shoots. They aim to cultivate a glamorous experience for all subjects, enlisting professional makeup artists and hairstylists to elevate the natural beauty of each subject to camera-ready works of art. The encouraging photographers put subjects at ease while helping them strike appealing poses and plying them with chic beverages and hors d'oeuvres. The sensual images can then be burned on CDs, immortalized in picture books that brim with up to 75 photos, or printed and tucked between the pages of the library’s copy of On the Origin of Species. In addition to boudoir services, Mi Amor Studio offers hair services such as keratin blow-outs, highlights, conditioning treatments, and haircuts for women, men and children. Airbrush tanning, manicures, and pedicures round out the salon's services.
With locations spanning Oklahoma City, Midwest City, and Norman, Sandy Beaches Tanning helps keep Sooner State bodies looking summer-ready all year round. Beds by brands such as Ovation, Solaris, and Acclaim HP comprise four tiers of conventional bulb tanning, or Mystic Tan airbrush booths rely upon the body's own magnetic properties to attract the customized formula in a way that helps it adhere evenly to every curve, crease, and prime meridian. To help clients keep up their sun-drenched demeanor between visits, Sandy Beaches also stocks each location's shelves with a large selection of tanning lotions, which customers can learn more about thanks to a biweekly lotion review posted on the business's facebook page.
South Beach Tans and Spa partitions its newly remodeled facility into two separate spaces: a secluded spa area offering skincare and waxing services and a livelier hallway that opens into private UV- and spray-tanning rooms. Clients can purchase single sessions or monthly packages for regular beds as well as VHO beds, which employ 42 lamps to produce a darker tan.
The company’s aestheticians curate complexions in warm, softly lit treatment rooms with noninvasive skin treatments designed to soften the signs of aging. The spa team also specializes in hair-removal using sugaring paste—a compound blended from sugar, lemon juice, and water—that exfoliates skin while yanking follicles out by the root, ensuring less hair breakage than tweezing or blasts from a freeze ray.
Professional airbrushing technician Joni Yeager has been building her body of work for eight years. She offers a natural tan to customers unable to spend the time basking in a tanning bed or wary of wear and tear on skin from exposure to the sun and sand paper-lined waterslides. Her sunless-tanning service uses a handheld airbrush to cover titillated tanners from head to toe in approximately 15 minutes. A single airbrush tan ($30) bronzes each body without the after-effects of orange pulp or tinting, and a package of two sunless sessions symmetrically extends the aesthetic benefits. Her spacious lobby can accommodate parties of 10 or more, including bridal parties or groups of 50 friends out for a suffragettes' committee meeting.
