Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
After moving several times, unable to find the right environment where she felt she could maximize her potential in the art of hair, Kayla Graves found herself at Blake Rose Salon & Spa. The Aveda Institute graduate is a master in her field, working closely with her clients to determine not just what they want, but also what will work best for their lifestyles and hair textures. Visitors in her chair can expect precision cuts as well as color, blow-outs, and brand-new styles.
Bryan Beaver has traveled the world in search of beauty. The master stylist and colorist has visited top salons in New York City, Miami, and Paris, where he developed his signature, French-influenced style. Along the way, he’s mentored hundreds of stylists in the ways of cutting-edge fashion and had his work showcased in Elle, Vogue, and on a billboard on the moon.
At home, Bryan oversees a talented staff of stylists, makeup artists, and nail technicians at his salon. He and his team create stylish and wearable looks in private styling stations outfitted with crystal chandeliers and full-length mirrors. The rest of the space is ultra-chic, too, with lime-green walls, minimalist furniture, and colorful artwork.
Offering a wide range of skincare and waxing services for men and women, Jolie Laide owner Jillian Brice and her skilled staff streamline skinsuits like a fleet of human Zambonis. Clients can choose to gloss over their lifemobile components with a 45-minute back purifying ($35), 20-minute eye treatment ($15), 45-minute skin therapy session ($75), and more. You can also apply your Groupon toward more pronounced pampering such as an aromatherapy saltscrub ($120) or an enzymatic mudwrap ($135). Being cocooned in super-mud (known in the biz as "beauty filth") also gives you more time to appreciate Jolie Laide's inviting atmosphere, spacious facilities, gentle pastel colors, and touches of retro décor.
Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, LA Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues, and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
The technicians at A New Day Body Wrap and Spray Tan Spa slim waistlines and tighten untaught skin with sea-inspired body wraps. To begin each session, techs wrap bodies with strips of cotton and elastic cloth. Each strip is soaked in one of the spa’s special formulations, such as a weight-loss promoting aloe-herbal mix. To enhance each partial- or full-body wrap, the spa also offers a seaweed-clay mask, which tightens skin in highly visible areas, such as those two strange holes where Frankenstein bolts used to be.
