Crush Salon and Spa's diverse services run the gamut from beauty to relaxation, including hot-stone massages, keratin straightening treatments, and a full-fledged spray-tan business. The staff cuts hair for women, men, and children, applies professional makeup, and rejuvenates complexions with deep-cleansing facials. In addition to these conventional salon services, Spray U Tan—located inside Crush—focuses exclusively on airbrush tanning, bronzing clients' bodies from head to toe, conjuring golden skin tones the way alchemists conjure excuses for why they seem to never actually turn anything into gold.

When the aestheticians at Sugar Moon Salon are handed lemons, instead of making lemonade, they make sugar paste.

Additionally, they can vagazzle a hair-free bikini area with Swarovski crystals arranged in designs such as hearts, stars, and butterflies.
