Malibu Tanning sends paleness packing with airbrushing and five levels of tanning beds to achieve a sun-kissed glow sans the actual sun. First-time tanners and those looking for a relaxing experience can recline in the level-one Sunstar bed ($5/session), which features 100-watt bulbs to build a base tan and a base camp for a future influx of pigmentation. The level-two Solaris bed ($10/session), level-three SolarForce bed ($15/session), and level-four Sunscape bed ($20/session) incrementally step up dermal darkening within reasonable spans of tanning temporality, leaving customers with plenty of time to return to archiving vintage TV Guides. The futuristically fabricated level-five Velocity bed ($25/session) employs an open-air design to keep clients cool, while a radio with an MP3 jack plays custom tunes and 18 facial bulbs at 1,000 watts each provide long-lasting color for both fair- and dark-skinned clients. Tanners can also skip the UV rays altogether and achieve brilliant bronzing with an airbrush-tanning session ($35).
"We have no regular beds or level 1 or level 2 reflector beds. Tiki tan is different then any compatitor. We start off with a level 3 bed in all Tiki location's. This means beds with more wattage per lamps, reflector lamps, and some Tiki's ;eve; 3 include 3 facials.

At Finesse Hair Salon, hairstylists strive to make a connection with their customers—involving them in a conversation about their taste and daily routine rather than dictating the course of the appointment. This emphasis on client input helps ensure haircare decisions are well considered by both customers and stylists, who then know they are matching the expectations of the person in the chair as they cut, color, or perm hair.
