The beauty buffs at Envy Tan equip their newly opened salon with a collection of beds, spray-tan services, and red-light therapy that aims to bronze and tone the skin. Recline in a 12-minute lie-down bed or rehearse semaphore monologues in a 9-minute stand-up unit, all while soaking in the vitamin D emitted by the traditional Level 2 UV tanning. The pink and white upright Ergoline Beauty Angel chamber bathes bodies in therapeutic non-UV red light, which has been said to stimulate collagen production to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. The rejuvenating beams may refine skin texture, as the vibrating platform underfoot stimulates muscles and politely asks cellulite to leave the room. A trio of VersaSpa spray tan sessions evenly mists hides with a sunless bronzing formula in the comfort of a high-tech booth or low-tech bounce castle.
Get your hair ready for fish-teasing season with a haircut and style ($35+) from one of Salon Urbanity's innovative stylists, or artificially infuse a sun-kissed look into your 'do with full foil highlights ($70+). You can also freshen up for an upcoming passport photo with a microdermabrasion treatment ($120+). Salon Urbanity's skilled technician will peel away the years by exfoliating the top microlayer of facial skin, leaving it looking refreshed and young enough to earn double-profiles from airport security, and an indulgent French manicure ($22+) will spiff up sorry fingernails. And if your new career in plantain farming has made your muscles tense and tightened, opt for a relaxating relaxation massage ($60 for 60 minutes) and feel troubles melt away like a dropped ice-cream cone in the Sahara.
The House of Brows may specialize in precision eyebrow waxing and threading, but its beauty and spa services, which include lash extensions, facials, body wraps, and massages, set the company apart. Aestheticians customize hair-removal sessions by consulting with clients to determine which method suits their hair or skin type. After deciding between threading or waxing, clients recline as aestheticians groom, shape, or completely efface hair patches. When the service concludes, technicians give clients after-wax instructions to console the skin of its losses. Treatments take place on overstuffed recliners in a vibrant bittersweet-colored studio.

Led by Dozer, a certified permanent-cosmetics technician and instructor who received his first tattoo at the age of 13, the crew at Mystic Revolutions accentuate assets with permanent makeup, tattoo art, and piercings.

Before leaving, clients can augment their services by sitting for tarot-card readings, reiki treatments, or hair coloring.
