Salon Bronze enlivens surface exteriors with effervescent glows derived from sunless spray-tan sessions and traditional tanning beds. Mystic Tanning sessions ensconce visitors in a private booth for 60 seconds of bronzing that's devoid of ultraviolet rays and humiliating third-place medal ceremonies. During the procedure, heat maintains surface dryness and stimulates the pores for maximum absorption as an airbrush moves and electric slides across the physique. Mystic tanning formulas, replete with built-in odor-control systems, are designed around four levels of skin tones to enhance skin color while protecting the epidermis with aloe vera and antioxidant extracts. Clients may also opt to shift their skin spectrums with 15- to 20-minute sessions in a level one or level two tanning bed equipped with new bulbs.
At Buff Natural Nail Bar, the primary focus is on healthy, natural nails. To that end, the staff of skilled technicians keeps manicures and pedicures toxin-free by only using nail polishes without formaldehyde, DBP, or toluene. The nail salon does not apply or remove acrylics, gels, gel polish, wraps, or press-on cat claws, preferring instead to nurture and tend to nails in their natural state. This stalwart pledge has helped Buff Natural Nail Bar earn the News & Record's title of Triad's Best Nail Salon for more than five years running.
Buff Natural Nail Bar's impressive menu includes hair and nail services performed by highly trained stylists. Hairstyling services use products from botanically based Phyto to cultivate face-flattering styles and dynamic highlights.
Sun Tan City's specially designed devices bathe bodies in an even, bronze glow. The tanning beds ($9-$34) apply a delicate balance of UVA and UVB rays to create the fun-in-the-sun look, with varying session durations depending on the bed's level of intensity -- fast, faster, fastest, or instant. The VersaSpa Sunless Tanning System ($34) can provide a natural, even-tonal transformation without the use of UV rays. Standing upright in the VersaSpa booth, your body will be gently misted with either a clear or bronze solution, which will then be combined with an anti-aging moisturizing skin treatment. Each booth is scientifically designed to provide a breathe-easy treatment and features an exhaust system to send the lingering mist out while sealing in skin's new shade. Finally, after a few minutes in the comfort air-dry system, your body will be dry to the touch.
Set in an old Victorian building, The Vintage Spa lives up to its name. The classical theme carries to the interior, which is appointed with wicker furnishings, heavy curtains, and ornate bronze lamps. In this quaint setting, hair and skincare specialists attend to the aesthetic needs of men and women. Stylists spruce up hairdos—cutting, coloring, and foiling heads and their meddling schemes. Aestheticians nourish skin with services including facials and microdermabrasion, and massage therapists relieve both physical and mental ailments.
