The beauty experts at Brow Art specialize in flattering facial features with threading services and eyelash extensions. Using a thin cotton filament, they groom and shape eyebrows into artful arches or tidy drawbridges. This thread can also whisk stray hairs away from upper lips, cheeks, and chins. Synthetic, silk, and mink lash extensions adhere directly to natural lashes for a dramatic look that doesn't need extra mascara or makeup.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Nestled amid cheery yellow walls and calming greenery, the Mystic Tan MyMyst booth at My Island Salon and Spa mists skin with UV-free hues. Friendly technicians trained in the art of color customization help guests to choose shades that look natural on their epidermises or exoskeletons. After divesting itself of jewelry and clothing—swimsuit optional—the body basks in a gentle mist fortified with soothing aloe and the antioxidant powers of green tea. Powered by DHA and erythrulose, the spray summons bronze tones that range from light caramel to dark chocolate. Mystic’s MagneTan technology polarizes droplets, turning them into miniature magnets. This process then attracts them to the magnetic properties of the skin and convinces them to hug the physique evenly. Like the urge to don sweatpants during Thanksgiving dinner, the summery glow emerges after a few seconds and intensifies over the next 24 hours.

West Coast Tan of Naples helps their clients snag glances by bronzing their bodies and adorning them with accessories for the beach. Beds and booths from brands such as Cyclone radiate varying levels of UV light to cultivate base tans and deepen existing color. Certified airbrush technicians and the mechanical nozzles of the California Autobronzer booth deftly administer self-tans, creating the appearance of sun-kissed skin without the UV exposure and embarrassing hickeys. Swarovski crystal jewelry glitters from inside the boutique, where flip-flops and lotions to aid indoor and outdoor tanning promise summer all year-round.
Tanning enthusiast Alisa Hostettler likes to joke that her lifelong dream of opening a tanning salon was supposed to give her the freedom to "sit on my butt all day." Ironically, she hasn't had a chance to sit down in eight years, dividing her time between the salon and traveling to beauty and body-building competitions, where she gives contestants meticulous last-minute touchups. When she's on the road, Alisa's all-female staff takes customers on a tour of the salon and details the wattage, UVA output, and maximum land speed of its 12 UV tanning beds.
Though all tanning salons are required to have one certified employee and three emergency lumberjacks, every member of Alisa's staff has taken the necessary classes and lined the walls with certification plaques. Clients seeking a personalized Turbo hand spray tan can change in the privacy of a well-lit dressing room before entering a tile-covered tanning suite. Gender-neutral spritzes of lemongrass or vanilla-sugar aromas mask the scent of DHA as technicians spray each limb until it approaches the desired hue. Back in the dressing room after the misting, clients get to check themselves out and inquire about the whereabouts of various princesses in a full-length mirror.
