Before establishing Krasiva at Ambiance Tan, Olga spent her days beautifying the faces and bodies of Europe. When she brought her talents across the Atlantic, the aesthetician decided to focus on facials—including chemical peels and microdermabrasion—and waxing.
Amid the wafting aromas of the onsite espresso bar, Ambiance Tan’s staff glazes epidermal layers in a natural-looking bronze sheen without the use of UV rays. The staff caters to personal comfort by partnering female technicians with female clients, and male or female technicians for male clients based on the client's preference. Customers stand in a private room as one of the team members coats corporeal forms with a sun-kissed hue using airbrush methods. After attaining their new glow, guests can visit the espresso bar and grab an iced coffee, flavored tea, or biscotti.
At Spoiled Spa and Salon, the path to beauty weaves through a landscape studded with massage tables, private pedicure stations with cuddler recliners, and a steam room. Clients can recline and let a massage therapist pore over them with deep-tissue techniques or hot stones, then surrender any remaining stress or stiffness during a Dead Sea–mud wrap, followed by a Vichy shower and body butter. After shampooing locks, stylists revamp tired styles with trendy cuts, multidimensional color, and Remy extensions made from 100% human hair—which can last up to three times longer than traditional extensions. Since opening, Spoiled Spa and Salon has demonstrated its commitment to the local community by annually participating in events such as CAMEO and Race for the Cure. Additionally, the salon's interior tips its hat to area talent. Local art and one-of-a-kind goods add character to the space, and the custom styling stations and signage owe their craftsmanship to local carpenters and print shops.
The mission at Organic Bronze Bar is to provide a consistent and enjoyable experience where clients get their needs heard and are always provided with cutting edge options. The talented professionals prides themselves on designing beautiful hair by merging up-to-date hair technologies and fashion trends in color, cuts and hair products that create the best results. The salon boasts high-end product lines such as Moroccanoil, Bumble & Bumble, Inoa Organics and Matrix.
Instead of relying on harmful rays, Organic Bronze Bar’s organic, paraben-free formulas call upon natural ingredients such as walnuts, antioxidants, and pure botanicals to deliver a safe, natural-looking glow. Eschewing a “one size fits all” experience, the staff custom blends each solution to suit differing skin types and applies it by hand to ensure even and streak-free coverage that dries instantly. The odorless solutions can be further enhanced with the addition of SPF, hydrating solutions, or bear repellent. Tans typically last 5–10 days with proper upkeep.
A lot of customization goes into Sunrise Salon's spray tans. First, their techs choose a personalized blend of tanning agents based on their clients' skin types. They then apply the natural spray using an airbrush, ensuring an even bronze. Tanning options also include traditional UV beds. To cover their newly bronzed clients' other aesthetic needs, the beauty emporium also hosts a relaxing spa and a salon where stylists create trendy hairstyles for both men and women.
UV rays gently warm skin, which is already luxuriously saturated in products from Hempz or Black Orchid. Music plays softly in the background as cooling fans send a soft chill into Sunshine-brand or quick-bronzing tanning beds. Clients emerge from their 15- to 20-minute beach-like vacation slightly darker than when they went in, ready to refresh themselves in front of a mirror using complimentary deodorant and wipes. Aside from indoor UV tanning, clients at the salon can increase their circulation and detoxify their bodies inside a far-infrared sauna or continue to decorate their skin with rockabilly jewelry from Box Wine Betty.
Pale skin tones enter Bronze Betty Tanning, only to re-emerge as glowing and beach-ready after putting in time with a King Bravo tanning bed. The salon pairs guests with a board-certified tanning consultant, who walks them through the experience, and together they decide what level of tanning would be appropriate. In addition to imparting glowing copper skin, the salon helps guests perspire away toxins in the far-infrared sauna that uses heat to spike metabolisms and flush away impurities during a session that takes 30 minutes, like dream-world high school.
