At Tan Republic, the staff doesn't just sit by while you tan?they advocate for responsible tanning. Within the upscale and modern salons, they carefully oversee the use the latest tanning equipment, including Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths as well as the high-pressure tanning beds, controlling clients' exposure to UV rays and cosmetic tanning compounds. They also ensure that every tanner uses FDA-compliant protective eyewear, and prevent any one visitor from wearing multiple pairs and making everyone else feel uncool. They even enhance their clients' tans with six varieties of lotion, each designed to produce a different intensity of bronze.
At Drunken Hog BBQ, all sauces are made in house from scratch, including the tomatillo beer sauce of the smoked pork and the honey chipotle that marinates chicken in a smoky-sweet flavor without dipping it in caramel-coated ashes. Meats seared on the barbecue, such as spareribs, pork, and chicken, complement a quartet of sauces, including the original barbecue and cilantro-lime. Kids’ meals sate appetites of age-deficient members of the family by feeding them proportioned amounts of mac ‘n’ cheese or drumsticks.
Color of Beauty bronzes pallid pigmentation using a bevy of beach-shirking tanning beds, which battle blanched personas with the help of a qualified staff and their allies, UV rays. The salon offers a number of epidermal-brassing recourses—both lie-down and stand-up options are available, as well as beds both silent and sound-system-equipped. Build your color base during an 18-minute session in the Lumina C 30 bed ($7), or step into the X7 42 High Intensive bed for a 12-minute nap, after which you wake up handsomely tanned and 12 minutes older ($20). UV-free tanning is also available (starting at $30 a session), and a host of tanning products promise to prolong your asolar blush (lotions start at $30 per bottle).

What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
The Beauty Room's most popular services are my micro-peel facials, Brazilians, and spray tans. My clients love these services because they are all results-based services using high-quality products. Client's come in, relax, and get to feel instantly more beautiful and spoiled.
A micro peel is a facial that includes microdermabrasion plus a chemical peel, so you get ultimate exfoliation both mechanically and chemically for amazing results. Diamond-tip microdermabrasion mechanically exfoliates your skin, preparing it for a custom chemical peel that includes a cocktail of perfecting ingredients for you specific skin's needs. Your skin will immediately glow, but over the course of a week continue to shine. Four to six treatments are recommended for best results.
Brazilians are performed with advanced waxing techniques and high-quality gentle products. If you are looking for a safe and gentle waxing experience, I'm the right aesthetician for you.
My spray tan technique and solution has been perfected to ensure a natural, even brown tan every time. The Beauty Room spray tan uses the best sunless tanning products in the industry to ensure that your tan looks natural and lasts as long as possible. My products are safe, organic, paraben-free, non-sticky and odorless. Unlike Mystic Tans, I combine natural ingredients and the latest technology to provide you with a streak-free, natural-looking tan that will never leave you looking orange.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
RAYA is a European quality skincare line that is affordable yet yields good results. [We also use] PCA (Physicians Care Alliance) Skin. They set the bar high when it comes to innovative skin care, being acknowledged in prominent medical textbooks as the originator of advanced blended chemical peel formulations. I want to build a successful practice and achieve the most effective results using PCA Skin and RAYA daily-care products and professional treatments.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
The two most common beauty mistakes I see potential clients making are not using high-quality, results-based products at home and not seeing a properly educated aesthetician. Just like you brush and floss your teeth twice a day between dental visits, you need to have quality home care for your skin twice a day. Sun protection and gentle exfoliation are the two most important things you can do for your skin on a daily basis. I'm also a firm believer in masking twice a week and at-home facial massages once a week with nourishing oils. Along with monthly aesthetic, work clients need to be taking care of their skin at home. I encourage everyone to come in and get educated about their skin. I'm full of knowledge and willing to share it with you.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Aesthetics is what I?m truly passionate about, and it shows with each and every client I serve. I take pride in all the services I perform and I love to spoil and make every client feel special. I?m genuinely interested in product knowledge and chemistry, which is proven with my bachelor of science in biology and continuing education. I love to serve others and I?m thrilled to perform result-based services. Through research, trial and error, years of experimenting, and working closely with a chemical engineer, I have found the highest quality products and services to offer. I value the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with you.
