Aches and pains evaporate as the hands of licensed massage therapist LeAnn McDonald sweep over muscles for Swedish or firm-pressure massages. While noses drink in aromatherapy through their nostril-mouths, LeAnn's targeted kneading unravels the knots in torsos that form when the topsail attached to the spine gets tangled in the rigging near the ribs. Clients may also request LeAnne's mobile spray-tanning services for off-site bronzing.
Inside this airy salon—bedecked with wooden crates and Parisian prints—stylists bolster each client's personal style with cuts, coloring, and hair treatments. Numerous coloring techniques, including base breaks and highlights, camouflage grey strands and provide a more youthful sheen to hairdos. Keratin and Japanese relaxer treatments help discipline the hair by keeping each lock as straight as a schoolmarm's ruler. The team also accentuates features with haircuts, and readies brides-to-be with sweeping up-dos and airbrush makeup.
The body bronzers at Melusina Custom Airbrush Tanning evenly coat skin with a nontoxic solution during custom spray-tan sessions. Customers emerge from a private booth or room after each five-minute treatment with a natural-looking hue, which continues to develop into a glowing tan over the next 5 to 24 hours. Tans last five to seven days after treatment or until an unexpected run-in with a freshly painted white wall. In addition to sunless tans, Melusina Custom Airbrush Tanning attempts to mitigate the appearance of cellulite with Oleaslim oil cocoon wraps and more.
Guests who come inside any of Malibu Tan?s many locations are greeted with a handshake. Though that might seem like an old-school approach to customer service, Malibu Tan?s owner encourages it as a genuine way for his staff to connect with each client and provide them with customized services. For more than 15 years, Malibu?s friendly staffers have also connected with higher-profile clients?including the Houston Dymano Girls team?by helping them choose the best of each facility?s tanning options for their skin types. With UV tanning, regardless of whether a client prefers a supine or standup system, they are bound to get a strong tan, as all UV bulbs are changed 200 hours before they hit capacity or finally crack open and release a butterfly. There are also plenty of UV-free options such as VersaSpa sunless tanning, which darkens exteriors with a hydrating DHA-based solution. Each location also offers tan-enhancing products from Designer Skin and California Tan.
A lush, rainforest-themed waiting room greets guests at Boca Tanning Club, hinting at the tranquil skinsperience that awaits them. The Friendswood location boasts Boca standup booths and the Boca Beast bed. Each of these luxury suncouches has three different skin-shade settings in addition to an mp3 player, air conditioning, aromatherapy, shoulder tanners, facial tanners, and spleen tanners. The League City location has, in addition to standup booths, the 10-minute Boca Tanning Club laydown beds, which are designed to beautifully bronzen soul sacks in 10 quick minutes, with the help of built-in high-def music, aromatherapy, and cooling misters. Should you choose the spray-tan option, both locations use Magic Tan VersaSpa Spray Tanning booths for UV-free glow-bestowing procedures. These booths have an open interior design and drying technology that superbly seals in sunless splendor. At the Friendswood location, you can also opt to use your Groupon for five photo rejuvenation sessions using the Mon Amie Collarium system. This new treatment acts as an anti-aging panacea, reducing the appearance of fine lines and improving skin texture and elasticity.
