Melinda's Tanning Closet & Cruises4u eponymous aesthetician brings beauty and relaxation to her clients from her spot in the heart of the Pearl District in downtown Eugene. Her luxurious facials peel away dead and dull skin cells in an attempt to restore verve to tired mugs, while her specialty eye treatments aim to reduce puffiness around peepers. Melinda also performs Balinese rituals that use a blend of herbs and minerals to gently relax stressed bodies. Alternatively, waxing services remove hair and save clients time they used to waste shaving, plucking, or trying to delicately zap away strands with their light saber.
The Beauty Room appears in clients’ homes or offices after licensed aesthetician and nail technician Julie Wobbe sets up her treatment table. Whether she treats them in their own space or out of her space inside of Harlow Boutique Salon, Wobbe eases clients into relaxation during treatments such as facials, manicures, peels, microdermabrasion, airbrush tans, and waxing. Wobbe’s treatments are the result of years of experience: she has tested several techniques and products to find the most effective combinations.
Whether she is soothing skin with facials, shaping brows with waxing services, or applying makeup for a special occasion, Meshelle Harris of Trés Belle Vous, located in Sunflower Salon, makes sure her clients feel pampered. Facial treatments, which are specially designed to combat dryness, acne, or aging combine relaxing steam and hot towels with advanced products from Botanical Science, which are also available for purchase. Other services include chemical peels and back treatments, which apply the principles of facials to backs, allowing ambitious spines to imagine themselves as windows to the soul.
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).
Sunsational Tanning & Salon’s beds and spray tans infuse skin with luminous color regardless of the season. A staff of specialists has kept the sun from setting on the salon’s expansive interior for more than eight years, matching skin tones with tanning beds or manually applying UV-free spray tans. They keep all of their equipment in pristine shape, regularly changing the light bulbs in their beds and refilling their spray-tan applicators with liquefied gold. They also lighten teeth using Beaming White products.
With many locations throughout Washington, Tan Republic outfits their salons with sleek, modern designs and earth-toned walls, filling private tanning rooms with a suite of melanin-conjuring machines. Guests can choose from Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths, high-pressure tanning beds, or jars full of fireflies that can be held against the skin for a natural glow. The salons also offer six varieties of lotion, each formulated for specific bronzing needs.
