Tommy’s Tanning offers customers more than two dozen bronzing options, from single-session spray tans for special occasions to yearly memberships inside five levels of tanning beds. The vertical and horizontal beds imbue skin with color while cooling faces and playing music for a more comfortable tanning session. For UV-free color, VersaSpa spray-tanning booths coat the skin in a streak-free glow, all while the client stands in a comfortable, wide-open interior.
A certain hominess shines through at JoBella Salon and Spa. The shop is named for the co-owner’s children, Joe and Bella, and the Branford location is nestled inside a two-story house surrounded by trees and green grass. Skilled stylists and aestheticians at both locations tap into an arsenal of elixirs from Arrojo and skincare products by Aveda. When they aren't beautifying clients from the neck up, they primp nails, knead sinews, and leave legs wrapped in seaweed like a sleeping sushi chef.
The brow specialist at Studio B Brow Bar and Body Studio crafts sleek looks by creating simple arches to frame clients' eyes. The technician also can wax unwanted hair from cheeks, upper lips, and underarms, and a massage therapist treats muscles aches with six different modalities including hot-stone massage and myofascial release. In addition, manicures with regular or long-lasting Shellac polishes add a burst of color to fingertips or help nails camouflage against the cottage-like studio's lemon-yellow exterior.
