With dozens of locations sprinkled around the sunshine state, California Sun makes it easy for tanners to bronze without fear of sunburn. As sunless bathers daydream within two levels of Ergoline beds, melanin rises to the skin's surface at the beck and call of a high-pressure cooling system or adjustable face tanners, leaving bodies with a golden glow in just 10–12 minutes. For those who prefer the misty kiss of a sunless spray tan, formulas by VersaSpa, Mystic Tan, or Norvell grace guests with new shades that can last from four to seven days and won't leave skin looking unnaturally orange or supernaturally blue.

Though the student aestheticians performing the salon and spa treatments at The Academy are still learning their craft, their work demonstrates a keen understanding of it. Under the watchful eyes of licensed professionals, students can showcase their new skills with subtle coloring treatments, wrinkle-erasing glycolic and retinol facials, and precise waxing and sugaring treatments. They also perform haircuts, and when their clients get their salon and spa fix here, the budding stylists don’t have to practice coif work by cutting their parents’ hedges or mashed potatoes—and clients can avoid the high cost of regular salons to boot.
You might not expect it, but the stylists at Pink Salon are particularly handy with a corkscrew. They have to be skilled at uncorking bottles because they offer clients a complimentary glass of sweet moscato with every color treatment. But it’s once they put down the corkscrew and pick up their styling tools that the highly trained stylists really show their stuff, nimbly snipping up trendy styles, tinting locks with vivid highlights, and taming frizz with keratin treatments. As stylists work, customers recline on sleek, black salon chairs and watch their reflections in lofty mirrors.
