AuRycl Tan owner Pashia Fischer knows the ins and outs of the spray-tan business. A former operations director for a large sunless-tanning company and a tinting artist for a loyal clientele, Pashia struck out on her own in May 2011 and hasn't looked back since. Along with a team of friendly account managers, she markets her proprietary line of sunless-tanning products across the country. Pashia's solutions—from an odor-free spray tan to a fast-drying bronzing mousse—bring a hint of sun to numerous salons and image-conscious owls.
The technology-driven treatments inside Islands Tanning MedSpa help bolster the body's glow and reduce its circumference. Inside Magic and Tanses UV beds, 12,800-watt bulbs saturate skin with darkening rays more safely than receiving a hug from a dwarf star. Meanwhile, UV-free Mystic and VersaSpa machines spray the epidermis with a bronze hue, and Fit body wraps fuse infrared-heat energy with constricting wraps that help shrink fat cells. Islands Tanning MedSpa also offers memberships.
After a day at Jungle Tan, visitors may look and feel like they've just returned from a tropical locale. The salon offers a fleet of beds in which hot bulbs emulate the effects of the sun's rays, dialed to four different levels of tanning intensity. Those seeking a UV-free tan can opt for the Evolv airbrushing system, a unique technology which uses warm air to help all-natural spray-tanning solutions sink into the skin's surface. Certified airbrush technicians customize the color to match each individual's skin type. Jungle Tan also nourishes skin and fosters relaxation with personal infrared saunas, steam-hydration therapy, aqua massages, and body waxing. Rounding out its cosmetic surfaces, the salon hosts professional teeth-whitening services and eyelash extensions.
The medical aestheticians at Glam Lash Boutique value their clients' natural beauty, so it should come as no surprise that they use natural spa treatments whenever possible. Their acid peels, for example, incorporate ingredients such as pomegranate and deep-sea herbs to more effectively remove impurities and unflattering clown paint. Even their hair-removal treatments are natural; clients can choose between wax or a natural sugar paste, both of which whisk away unwanted stubble and prepare skin for an organic spray tan. Of course, one of the spa's most popular services is hinted at in the name. Certified lash artists carefully apply silk and mink extensions to add length to natural eyelashes.
