The deft muscle-manipulators at Special Touch Hair Designs knead bone-movers into ache-free bliss with stress-busting massages and pampering spa treatments. The 45-minute hand-and-foot paraffin treatment encases extremities in warm, sticky wax, locking in moisture to leave hands and feet as soft as the Pillsbury Doughboy’s favorite neck pillow. After removing the wax, therapists complete the pampering with hand and foot massages. A one-hour relaxation massage focuses on liquefying tension with broad, smooth strokes while moisturizing skin with cocoa butter or hypoallergenic lotion. Therapeutic massage focuses on knotty muscles, applying deep pressure to clenched backs and shoulders to increase range of motion and circulation. A clean, softly lit room ensconces guests in a serene atmosphere during sessions. Quiet music and warm sheets encourage guests to drift into relaxing reveries, daydreaming about floating through clouds or visiting museums filled only with busts of Teddy Roosevelt.
As a family-owned-and-operated business, Magic Island Tanning provides a variety of services for patrons seeking a toastier epidermis. Three varieties of UV beds provide even results for melanin seekers of every stripe, with both standing and reclining options. Those who shun the sun can opt for VersaSpa's moisturizing sunless-tanning spray, which studied the star religiously for years to learn its moves and recreate them for ex-sun worshippers. The system's EZ-2Breathe technology makes each dark-hued hose-down comfortable and relaxing. Spray tans come in three levels ($31–$41 for full-body treatments); face ($5–7) and leg ($14–18) sprays are also available.
At Tantalizing Studios, three levels of tanning beds, hand-blended spray-tans, and top-tier tanning lotions help clients achieve customized tans not possible at every tanning salon. After recommending a tanning lotion from a selection that includes Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Devoted Creations products, technicians lead individuals to private treatment rooms, where seven different tanning beds await. In addition to tanning, Tantalizing Studios' serene, turquoise-colored studio welcomes those in need of body-waxing and massage treatments.
In as little as 12 minutes, patrons can bronze their bodies in Tanning Haven’s Matrix bed. It is outfitted with more than 22,000 watts and six facial tanners. Less intense tanning options, such as base beds and standup beds, are also available and allow clients to relax for up to 25 minutes each session. For those wanting a glow sans UV rays, an airbrush tan or dip in a bath of melted pennies does the trick.
At United Hairlines and Tan Lines, licensed stylists beautify patrons with a host of hair-coddling services amid earthy decor. Change up a look for a date, interview, or secret agent convention with a full-color treatment and style, which can be administered on tresses of any texture. Clients select the hue of their cranial makeover before the seasoned hands of a hair specialist transforms manes into desirable coiffures. Or opt for a Brazilian blowout, which unfrizzles hair by swaddling skull strands in a cocoon of salubrious protein, conditioning hair more effectively than using a flatiron or sticking one's head into a steam press.
Drawing on 10 years of experience, owner and expert airbrusher Kathryn Swope lends bodies a rich tan without UV lights using all-natural tanning solutions at her new store location in Perrysburg. During a personalized consultation before each session, Kathryn chats with visitors to determine the most suitable hue for each skin type. She'll then swathe epidermises in a nourishing pretanning elixir that hydrates skin for optimal color and an even, all-over tone devoid of streaks, splotches, or unintentional pentagrams. Wielding her airbrushing equipment, Swope bathes bodies in a mist of aloe-based solution that reacts naturally with skin to create a convincing glow.
