Within the cream and burgundy oasis that is Euphoria Body Salon, a team of beautifiers with more than 50 years of combined experience get to work primping, pampering, and painting. Nail technicians administer mani-pedis decadent enough to warrant names like "whipped strawberry," handing each client a glass of bubbly before massaging hands and slicking them with polish. Dermaplane facials resurface tired fa?ades, and hairstylists cut and color the coifs of women, men, and children.
When you think of a traditional tanning salon, you might imagine rows of tanning beds ready to deliver bronzed skin in 15-minute doses. Premier Tanning Salon is no different—it boasts eight Ergoline beds with four levels, in fact. But what sets Premier apart is that it also specializes in sunless tanning. The salon's Norvell Auto Revolution machine delivers an automated airbrush tan in just three to five minutes, covering skin in a choice of three levels of color. The sun-kissed color lasts up to a week, and it won't rub off on clothes or fluffy white cats in search of petting.
If Suntana’s staff of tanning specialists seems particularly knowledgeable about their trade, it may be because many of them are dedicated tanners as well. They draw on a combination of firsthand experience and industry know-how to help their clients achieve rich, golden skin tones courtesy of customized spray tans and three levels of UV tanning beds. Their expert guidance—along with moisturizing lotions from brands such as Designer Skin and Australian Gold—helps protect against the risks associated with overexposure or lowering oneself into a deep fryer.
