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.
Snap Fitness's easyFIT monitor is a small, clip-on accelerometer that helps keep track of daily exercise. Unlike pedometers that merely measure steps and spy on daydreams, the easyFIT monitor senses the intensity and duration of physical activity, transmogrifying those stats into simple, numerical points that help assess activity levels from sedentary to peak performance. In addition to tracking exercise in real time, easyFIT monitors can connect to the wearer's personal web portal to upload data and create fitness graphs that help show progress, snag exercise suggestions, and stave off the temptation of living next to a hamburger farm. Watch a video about the easyFit here.

"[I] just couldn't pull away from what I love most, which is skincare for the hands and feet," she says. Once she realized that, Bailey developed her own waterless pedicure style that eschews traditional water jets in her pedicures to eliminate the concern of cross contamination and accidental foot drowning. After beautifying the digits of cheerleaders from the Dallas Cowboys and Mavericks, she moved to Idaho and applied her 28 years of experience to Nails by Stephanie at Revive Salon.
