The Smart Tan–certified technicians at Summer Sun Tanning Salon equip patrons for jaunts on the beach with a full menu of summer-readying services. The salon’s lineup of UV beds baste skin with bronzing rays that gradually build up darker skin tones, and airbrush wands apply a sheer pigmented mist to curves to impart the type of golden demeanor required for access to the beach or Meryl Streep's linen closet. Aestheticians can then rehydrate skin with an omega 3 facial, or keep bodies bikini-ready with a variety of waxing treatments. The salon also helps patrons keep a literal finger on the pulse of current fashion trends by offering nail services performed with OPI crackle polish and CND Shellac.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
In my teens. Little did I know that's what I'd be doing for a living. I have a great love for enhancing a women's true beauty, whether with waxing or airbrush makeup.
Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?
Waxing. It's instant gratification for the client and myself. Clients love to see immediate results.
You can turn back a clock by hand, but you'll only end up late for work. At Coeur d' Alene Esthetics, technicians take the pressure off, performing beautification techniques to reverse aging without the hassle. The owner takes an uncommonly personal approach to beauty, shopping farmers' markets and health-food stores to make fresh masks, toners, and lotions from in-season fruits and vegetables. Clients may also solicit a technician for a spray tan or swift waxing session.
From inside Lather Salon and Spa, skilled aesthetician Stephanie Hendrickson transforms sparse eye strands into luscious lashes with individually applied synthetic extensions. Her deft hands affix new lashes with medical-grade adhesive until eyes obtain a naturally full look or bear fringe long enough to fan the person sitting opposite. She also embellishes appearances with permanent makeup, shaving precious minutes off of morning routines.
Calling upon 14 years of experience and skills, such as skin rejuvenation, Total Skin & Body Wellness @JMiller Salon's experienced aesthetician aims to relax her clients as she amps up their natural beauty. In doing so, she lengthens lashes with extensions, exfoliates complexions with microdermabrasion treatments, removes unwanted fuzz with waxing services, and cleanses visages with facial treatments.
Highly trained stylists at Salon Bella Dona primp clients with premium products, such as Dermologica skincare, Youngblood makeup, and a variety of soft and hard waxes that emanate the scents of lavender and mojito. Tucked away inside a red-brick building, the salon creates a cozy vibe with warm orange and cream walls and a framed photograph of every client's grandmother.
