Glo Sun Spa keeps a slew of modern bronzing, polishing, and hydrating technologies in peak condition. With a variety of tanning beds, Glo Sun Spa provides a wide range of sun-kissed glows. Alternatively, sunless VersaSpa and Pura Sunless systems provide a tan away from the sun's rays. The hydration station combines Hydrofusion with steam and LED technology to moisturize and tan epidermises, and the Lumiere Excel system features a series of repairing, clearing, and firming regimens. Glo Sun Spa also stocks a full line of lavish skincare products from brands such as Devoted Creations.
Island Tan detoxifies the body with calorie-burning, form-whittling Formostar infrared body wraps. During each 50-minute treatment, guests repose beneath a sextet of silicone pads that rest on problem spots such as thighs and hips for women, abdomens and chests for men, and hooves for minotaurs. Patrons control the temperature of their incubating blanket, releasing the desired amount of far-infrared heat that will penetrate the skin's surface. As the mercury of each body's internal thermometer creeps up, bodies may sizzle away between 900 and 1,400 calories, or the equivalent of seven boiling cauldrons of rainbow sprinkles. Most patients require 6–10 sessions to blast away noticeable inches.
Guests who come inside any of Malibu Tan’s many locations are greeted with a handshake. Though that might seem like an old-school approach to customer service, Malibu Tan’s owner encourages it as a genuine way for his staff to connect with each client and provide them with customized services. For more than 15 years, Malibu’s friendly staffers have also connected with higher-profile clients—including the Houston Dymano Girls team—by helping them choose the best of each facility’s tanning options for their skin types. With UV tanning, regardless of whether a client prefers a supine or standup system, they are bound to get a strong tan, as all UV bulbs are changed 200 hours before they hit capacity or finally crack open and release a butterfly. There are also plenty of UV-free options such as VersaSpa sunless tanning, which darkens exteriors with a hydrating DHA-based solution. Each location also offers tan-enhancing products from Swedish Beauty and California Tan.
Guided by a husband-wife team, Journey's Hair Studio & Spa Jaeger's proficient stylists craft modern hairstyles with precision and quality products from hard-to-find brands such as Scruples, Kenra, and Retro Chic. During the appointment, a hair whisperer snips and clips locks into a museum-worthy face frame, then blow-dries them silky smooth. Clients can also choose to partake of a styling, and for an additional cost, they can incorporate other services into their hair pampering, from deep-conditioning treatments ($20) to body waves ($90).
A lineup of Aquage, Redken, and Pureology products gives the stylists at Up In Tangles an ample palate with which to transform drab tresses into well-coiffed works of art. They paint strands with regular or corrective color to add depth to new cuts and tint eyebrows and lashes to match newly minted hair hues without covering brows with mustache appliqués. Keratin-based straightening systems change up mane texture, along with regular and feather extensions. The stylists can use Jane Iredale mineral makeup or bridal airbrush makeup to put the finishing touches on their masterpiece canvases.
