Ornate candlesticks, framed mirrors, fringed lampshades, and detailed furniture bestow Shear Madness Salon, Tanning, & Day Spa with a Victorian look that conveys decadence. But the nostalgia only goes so far as the decor, as the spa's staff beautifies its clients with modern techniques and products. Mystic spray-tan booths deliver glows within seconds, and Beach Wave perms and keratin treatments change the texture of tresses.
As a boutique-style salon, The Painted Lady Tanning & Spa offers airbrush tanning, Mystic Tan sunless tanning, UV tanning, and anti-aging infrared-light therapy, as well as a range of massage, facial, and waxing services. The staff guides beginners through their first sessions, allowing clients to get acquainted with the equipment, such as the Beauty Angel, before taking it for a spin or on a second date. They also assist guests in the process of selecting their desired level of tan, choosing from three levels of color that range from light to dark—or, as the salon refers to them, from "the Longoria" to "the Kardashian" to "the Snooki."
The sunless-bronzing mavens at Let's Glow Spray Tan—including a licensed aesthetician—get epidermises glowing with custom, hand-applied color. During the 15- to 20-minute appointment, an experienced airbrush artist thoroughly evaluates the client's skin type to determine a natural shade, ranging from a light, subtle sun-kissed color to a bold, dark sun-french-kissed hue. Next, aestheticians mix up a tailored solution—made with paraben-free, 99% organic ingredients—that bronzes as well as tones skin with firming agents and nourishes with aloe vera and vitamins A, C, and E, tinting pelts for up to 7–10 days.
