The team at Tan the Moon believes that tanning, like anything else, is best done in moderation. The staff members advocate for measured UV exposure, which they assert can both protect skin from the effects of too much tanning and from the dangers of avoiding the sun altogether—sunburns and vitamin-D deficiencies, respectively. At the sun-worshipping salon, patrons can pay by the minute, month, or year to use tanning beds in four different levels. For clients who wish to forgo UV altogether, there are automated VersaSpa spray-tanning booths, or clients can enjoy a hand-applied custom airbrush tan. Pre-tan sessions in the hydration station can extend a tan’s life by two to four days, so Tan the Moon offers packages that add a hydration session to any type of tan. Lotions and extenders from Australian Gold and Booda Organics can also help color last longer than a round of “A Googolplex Bottles of Beer on the Wall.”
Chic Bronzing's owner Marisa has custom-crafted countless bronze glows during five years as a spray tan technician. She performs each and every one of the salon's tanning treatments. Using a custom-blended formula that's jam-packed with DHA and moisturizers, she uses her expertise as well as client input to create a natural-looking, long-lasting tan. Clients looking for a summer glow can stop in one of two locations.
The staff at Plaza 101 Salon and Spa helps clients look their best from crown to toenail, cultivating elegant looks amid stately surroundings of exposed brick and mahogany furnishings. In addition to trimming wayward strands, the stylists can invent a dramatic new look by using highlights or lowlights to add depth and dimension. The salon's massage therapist designs custom sessions that can incorporate a mélange of Swedish, deep-tissue, shiatsu, myofascial-release, and reiki therapies in order to address each individual's needs. While the nail technicians beautify digits with the rejuvenating benefits of paraffin dips and Dead Sea salt, Dr. Debra Mowery steps in to offer physician-supervised cosmetic procedures, including injectable dermal fillers, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion sessions that can improve the skin's tone, texture, and bioluminescent capabilities.
The sun shines year-round at Tropical Tans, where a staff strives to give clients natural-looking color. After learning a guest’s envisioned results, the staff pairs them with a tanning bed in one of three levels or prescribes airbrush spray tanning, a UV-free formula that coin collectors often use to make their pennies more appealing and fresh-looking to buyers.
Guiltless Glow owner and proprietor Laurie Middleton was once a self-proclaimed “sun-worshipper," who relied on tanning beds for her bronzed glow. She soon learned of the benefits of airbrush tanning—the customizable shades, the skin-toning and evening properties, and lack of harmful UV rays—and has since dedicated herself to sharing that knowledge. Inside her studio, she's further expanded her passion for beautification, performing skincare, nail, and waxing services, offering Norvell automatic booth tans, and adding glow to grins with DaVinci organic teeth-whitening services.
The certified aestheticians at Tuscan Tans & Day Spa shore up faces against winter wind and the sands of time with treatments such as the Tuscan Twilight facial.

Visitors step among the Tuscan-style salon's wooden floors and yellow walls hung with artwork. After rearranging the furniture to their liking in the homey waiting area, visitors pass through slatted doors on their way to the treatment chamber.
