The specialists at each of Bronze Bay Tanning Center's locations craft custom plans that emphasize building a tan while avoiding burns. They work to help those new to UV beds acquire a base tan and aid seasoned bronzers in reaching new shades. Within colorfully walled rooms, warm-skinned patrons slip out from UltraSun and SunScape units, thankful that the sun is now only used to give cowboys a cool way to leave parties. Air conditioners in UltraSun TurboPower 25000 S units pour out cool air, and the SunScape SS755 produces an even, all-over tan with the aid of frosted acrylic surfaces. At some shop locations, clients foster summer glows with tanning lotions from brands such as Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold.
Much like finding the best-fitting jeans, shoes, and hat-sized hatchbacks, the right tanning solution requires trying out different sunning equipment. This package offers you the ability to try out all five options with five separate visits, including the sunless VersaSpa. Each bed has different features, so start your tour with a baste in the fast tanning bed, a 20-minute process with high-quality lamps for base-tan building, and spend the next session sampling the faster tanning bed, which allows pallid patrons to quickly achieve a base tan and evens out stubborn tan lines. The fastest tanning bed mixes UVA and UVB to build a solid base tan in as few as four sessions, and the instant tanning bed offers the highest-intensity lamps; because of its lower levels of reddening UVB rays, the instant bed is a good choice for fair dermises that burn easily or have difficulties darkening under the Sun Meister's steely glare. For your last session, harness the power of plant-based VersaSpa solutions to provide a natural, even-tonal transformation. Standing upright in the VersaSpa Sunless Tanning Booth, your body will be gently misted with either a clear or bronze solution of anti-aging formula or UV skin-defining maximizer. After a few minutes, your body is dry to the touch.
It’s hard to tell if you’re walking into a pedicure studio or a Victorian sitting room. A client relaxes in a throne-like leather chair while a nail technician tends to her feet, and yet it feels as though a butler could walk in at any moment with high tea. Perhaps it’s the nail technicians, who seem to be fawning over royalty, or perhaps it’s the room’s ornate mouldings, matching the patterned wallpaper and rug, and polished hardwood floors. That distinct sense of place elevates both of Parlour on the Avenue’s locations, both housed in buildings constructed in the 1800s—one receiving a preservation award from Indiana Landmarks—and both with two floors bedecked in Victorian decor.
On the ground floors, the staff dotes over visitors with hair, nail, skin, and spa services. The second floors house Victorian wet spas—spaces where clients enjoy privacy and indulgent services such as whey baths, hot-stone massages, and stories read by Charles Dickens. To enhance the results of each service, Parlour’s team recommends aftercare products from its stock, such as lotions from Hempz Body Care and Pino and face-care formulas from Control Corrective.
After a decade-long stint in law enforcement, Anne E. Currie returned to the profession she is most passionate about: nailcare. Anne came full circle in 2011, when she opened Nailtoepia after having started her career as a nail technician in 1991. A creative soul, Anne specializes in colored acrylics, custom nail art, and glitter nails that double as disco balls for hamster nightclubs. Along with nail enhancements, she offers a full menu of nailcare services that range from Shellac mani-pedis to men's nailcare at her two locations in Greenfield and Morristown.
