Endless Summer equips clients with a sun-kissed hue year-round. The salon boasts four types of UV beds, including a standup unit that gives 360 degrees of coverage. For custom hues, an airbrush specialist coats bodies with a UV-free formula that develops into a natural-looking bronze over the course of a few hours. The staff also regularly tests out bronzing products to determine which deserve coveted space on the salon's retail shelves; current offerings include Kardashian Glow and JWOWW.
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.
Tanu Tanning's triad of locations works to produce deep, even tans with a mélange of UV-powered beds and body-gilding lotions. Each location boasts a heavy lineup of 15–17 horizontal or vertical beds, some of which are equipped with facial tanners, so clients can customize their experience based on preferred duration and number of earthly petitions sent to Norse sun goddesses. Customers are also privy to half off all tanning-lotion bottles ($20+) with today's Groupon.
The bronzing artists at Glow Sunfree Tanning and Waxing shade bodies to coppery hues with spray tans in just 15 minutes. Customizing their eco-certified tanning solution, which incorporates jojoba oil, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins to nourish skin, lets the professionals ensure clients acquire streak-free, natural-looking tans that can't be achieved with an orange crayon. In addition to darkening limbs, the salon staff waxes away unwanted fuzz for smooth, beach-ready skin.
Customers can stay bronzed and buff year-round at Different Seasuns. Thirty tanning beds in eight different types bestow skin with a golden hue in private rooms painted with a tropical flair. The salon’s circuit-training center includes conditioning machines, weighted hula hoops, exercise balls, and free weights that work to sculpt freshly tanned muscles.
