Cindy Davis, owner of The Difference Hair Salon, draws on 20 years of experience as she shapes 'dos and leads a small but seasoned staff of two stylists. Cindy's salon has been churning out flattering coiffures since 2004 with cuts, color, highlights, and perms. Her staff also beautifies façades with tanning, waxing, and facials. When they aren't renovating visages, they help clients stay healthy by massaging stressed sinews with cauliflower florets.

Sunnyside Tanning Spa's Smart Tan–certified technicians adjust the tint on anatomical control panels with variable-intensity UV-tanning beds and hand-applied spray tans. Airbrush artists darken human hides with Norvell solutions composed of bronzers including cosmetic, DHA, and erythrulose, the combination of which ensures evenness and eliminates spotting and streaking. Sunnyside's arsenal of UV-tanning beds includes in its ranks the Ergoline Classic 600, which boasts high-pressure facial lamps and shoulder bronzers. The stand-up hex unit showers bodies in 360 degrees of UV coverage and simulates the effects of walking on sunshine. Late-night hours offer convenient tanning for business people, students, and beach bums sneaking around behind the Sun's back. Sunnyside's updated arsenal also features the Fuquay location's Beauty Angel red-light-therapy booth, which rains green light's stern roommate onto hides to stimulate collagen production, battle cellulite with a vibrating platform, and firm the skin by promoting absorption of cosmetics.
