At all of Q Nails And Tanning's stations, the cosmetologists and manicurists display their licenses, and they're happy to talk about them with customers. That's because, in addition to being highly trained in their fields, the staff members take pride in their ability to foster easygoing conversation and cultivate a social, laid-back environment where clients feel comfortable and welcome. As clients and technicians engage in comfortable back-and-forth, fingers and toes find their own things to brag about, including new sets of acrylic, gel, or pink-and-white nails that enable them to steal the thunder back from player pianos. Once fingers and toes are looking polished, clients can better the rest of the body with lie-down or standup tanning sessions, as well as facials, waxing services, and eyelash extensions.
When it comes to getting a healthy glow, that big star at the center of the solar system doesn't always make it easy. For those who don't have the time to rotisserie themselves between breaks in the clouds, Paradise Tanning of Circle Pines offers an array of indoor bronzing options. That includes 11 lie-down tanning beds and one stand-up unit for the horizontally averse, where epidermal shades darken in 12- to 20-minute sessions. Meanwhile, Mystic Tan spray tans deliver beach-ready beautification in a fraction of that time, bronzing bodies in a up and down airbrush motion that takes mere seconds. Once bodies have adopted their new golden glow, Paradise Tanning helps them develop the confidence to show it off by offering seaweed, dry-mineral, and collagen-enriched aloe vera body wraps, which flush away internal poisons and cellulite and help tighten skin.
A friendly staff stands ready to introduce bronzers to custom Norvell spray tans through a wide selection of basic to high-pressure tanning beds as well as DaVinci teeth-whitening treatments. Premier packages grant tanners unlimited access to Sunna’s assortment of standup and lie-down beds, including models with facial tanners, ideal for fostering base tans, and beds with built-in fans that keep climates comfortable and inhospitable to Viking invaders. Alternatively, the tanning technicians can custom-blend the Norvell UV spray-tan solution to find the best golden hue for each body. The staff then deftly deliver even coats of color that can last for up to 10 days, using nozzles that help remove uneven tan lines caused by falling asleep beneath a ladder. Each private room stores a host of amenities, including a remote-controlled stereo system as well as fresh towels and lotions.
At locations across the country, clients check in at marble-fronted reception desks to meet with a member of Darque Tan's International Smart Tan Network?staff trained to determine the best path to their bronzing goals.

In music, the term adagio means "slow tempo." Likewise, Salon Adagio serves as an oasis amid the hectic bustle of daily life, commanding clients to relax with a variety of spa and salon treatments. The spa's aestheticians erase blemishes with chemical peels or use noninvasive ultrasonic technology to jump-start collagen production and firm skin tone, and massage therapists relieve muscle tension with relaxing or therapeutic modalities. Along with painting nails with chip-resistant Shellac polish, technicians round out mani-pedis with soothing paraffin treatments and scented scrubs. At the salon, stylists shape tresses into trendy new looks, and sunless and airbrush tanning bronzes skin evenly without exposing it to the harmful UV rays emitted by tanning beds and solar-powered calculators.
With stress levels on the rise, it's important to take a day to take care of yourself. Fortunately, Rejuva GlowSpa lets you do just that?literally. Here, clients actually self-administer many of their own treatments using automated machines that can do everything from massage sore muscles to hydrate the skin.
The Hydration Station is a pod-like unit that encloses the body from the shoulders down, moisturizing the skin with vitamin-infused steam that may help boost collagen production. There's also beds for hydro-massage and red-light therapy, the latter of which may boost blood flow and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The spa even provides tanning services in the form of UV beds and California Tan airbrush sessions.
