Armed with airbrushes and customizable tanning formulas, Tan To You's technicians travel to Dayton-area salons and clients' own homes to spread sunless glow. The airbrushing experts supply all necessary equipment, and they offer up plenty of tips that help clients achieve and maintain the best color. In addition to standard airbrush tans, the staff also hosts mobile tanning parties, bringing along wine or martinis. Alternatively, they paint fingers with custom designs during mobile nail services.
Staffed by certified members of the American Massage Therapy Association and a duo of certified aestheticians, Serenity Therapeutic Massage & Skin Care keeps bodies limber and faces fresh with a suite of rejuvenating services.

Aestheticians—exclusively wielding botanical Pevonia products—massage and revivify faces with treatments custom-tailored to each client's skin tone, moon sign, and epidermal concern. Alternatively, a variety of spa packages for parties of two to six people combine massages with other pampering services such as facials, body treatments, and sugar scrubs.

Q&A with Lisa Thompson, Owner and Stylist
The sweet irony of becoming a stylist is that no matter how good you are, you can never give yourself a haircut. What do you look for in a stylist when you need a trim?
When looking for the best stylist, I always look for someone who will take the time to KNOW me and my likes and dislikes. Ask me? Ask who I am as a person! Someone who will take the time to know me.
What's the number one grooming tip every person should know?
Never blow dry your hair with the nozzle of your dryer facing up! It will always make your hair frizzy! Always put a cool rinse on your hair to add shine!
What other services do you offer besides haircuts?
Perming, coloring, hi-lighting, and facial waxing.

It's a pretty wide range of skills for one guy, but Bryce wants to make his salon a one-stop shop "where girls get ready." He'll create a personalized look to match any event, whether it's an average date night or a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence such as your wedding or your turn to be president.
