Inside an open 2,200-square-foot space, Amoré Salon & Day Spa’s owner and proprietor Jessica Griffeth and her team of licensed professionals perform a full menu of beautification services including massage, spray tans, and haircuts. Before undergoing any of the salon’s rejuvenating services, clients can relax and talk openly with staff members to make suggestions, requests, or simply recite The Song of Hiawatha from memory.
Dawnmarie, the certified spray-tanning technician behind Sheer, bronzes bodies with organic mist during sessions that last approximately 10 minutes. She customizes her technique to match each client's preferences, and can spray tan the entire body or only a certain area, such as the chest, face, or arms.
If desired, she'll incorporate rapid spray-tan technology, which allows clients to shower as soon as one hour after their tan.
TanTastic Tans' clean tanning beds and sunless tanning spray lend pigment a healthy, natural-looking shade. Relax, nap, or ponder the impermanence of popsicles in any of the three high-intensity tanning beds to develop an allover epidermal enrichment over the course of five sessions. Tanners can recline in a lie-down divan for 10–12 minutes,
dive into the 20-minute bed equipped with facial tanners, or stroll into the 10- to 12-minute standup bed. Those wishing for a UV-free alternative can opt for a spray-tan session, which lends skin a rich glow devoid of orange undertones, foul odors, or scurrilous graffiti tags.
Complexions' aesthetician, Diana, spritzes pallid pelts with an all-natural SunFX sunless-tanning formula. Diana airbrushes coats with a butterscotch topping that combines DHA with mineral-salt bronzers culled from the sun's tears. The formula leaves bodies free of alcohol, oils, perfumes, and potentially harmful chemicals and preservatives, and it continues to develop on dermises for 2–4 hours after application. For an extra fee, clients can add a range of skin accessories to their body canvases, including gold or opal glitter ($3), an anti-aging solution ($5), and nose-tempting scents such as orange, pineapple ($3 each), or freshly washed puppy.
The long corridor at Electric Beach Tanning & Salon is lined with doorways, each one leading into a world without traffic, deadlines, or ringing alarm clocks. Some of the rooms are dedicated to skincare treatments, others to tanning and hairstyling. But in one of them, licensed massage therapist Elaine brings time to a slow crawl while she loosens tense muscles with relaxing massages.
Though Elaine customizes her massages to meet your exact needs, she's especially skilled in Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal techniques. If stress is what ails you, try the relaxing Swedish massage; if you pulled a muscle while barking furiously at the mailman, you'll likely benefit most from a sports massage.
