Skin Deep Tanning, at first glance, looks more like an upscale boutique than a tanning salon. Leather chairs surround a flat-screen television in the lobby, and a brightly upholstered couch fits in amongst a selection of lotions for sale. Upon further exploration through the meticulously cleaned space, guests find a fleet of high-tech tanning equipment in private rooms in the back. Natural hardwood floors gleam in each room, reflecting light from the stand-up and traditional tanning beds that bronze skin for upcoming stints as a trophy designer’s model. Meanwhile, a VersaSpa booth automatically applies spray-on color that is UV-free. The knowledgeable staff can help clients devise a proper tanning schedule to get a healthy glow in time for special occasions.
The aestheticians at Sculpting Craze draw on a full suite of salon and nail services to boost a client's beauty and confidence. They polish hands and feet, wax away unwanted hair, extend eyelashes, and add dimension to new dos with highlights and hair coloring. They even install hair extensions and perform Brazilian blowouts.
The stylists at Knick Salon and Spa cultivate an urban oasis where organic and vegan products, eco-sensitive cleaning agents, and methodical recycling practices reign. Inspired by Aveda founder Horst Rechelbacher, the stylists refuse to cosset clients with anything except safe and nutritious concoctions by companies such as Phyto, Eufora, and Intelligent Nutrients. In their chandelier-lit workspace, they blend their mastery of cutting and coloring techniques with continuing education to expand their minds and give their hair more room to grow. That commitment to nature-inspired quality extends to the spa side as well, where mani-pedis powered by essential oils, paraffin-free masks, and organic sugar scrubs bring life back to tired hands and feet. In the private massage room, therapists ply muscles with soothing bodywork made all the more relaxing by infusions of jasmine and frankincense or the warm touch of hot stones. Tired muscles also meet their match in the spa's Alpha Capsule—a dry-heat sauna that promises each client heated vibration massage, aromatherapy, and a relaxing bowl of alphabet soup.
The staff at Natural Glo wants to provide a bronzed look without the harsh effects of UV rays. So tanning techs coat skin in a natural organic solution made with antioxidants and pure botanicals. They can also add a hydration treatment made with emollients, or an anti-aging treatment that rejuvenates skin with exotic plant extracts.
At Sunseekers Tan, skin darkens beneath five types of tanning bed and in front of the nozzles of the Mystic Tan sunless spray system. Customers can augment their tanning experiences with an array of lotions to keep skin from drying out and flaking.
