Le Soleil Tanning's owner, Rachel Tanis, has been in fierce competition with the sun for four years. Since opening in 2008, she and her staff have gained the upper hand with Smart Tan certification, which gives them the tools to design safe tanning regimens for each skin type. Those hoping to avoid UV exposure step inside an automated VersaSpa spray booth, where special serums moisturize the skin with aloe vera and balance its pH before coating it in bronzer. Fresh, neatly folded hand towels sit atop Soltron and Ergoline beds radiating UV rays at three levels of intensity. The most powerful of these is a high-pressure Ergoline bed with an open, airy design that surrounds those within in UVA rays and tunes piped from its MP3-player dock. Part and parcel with creating the hallmark of health and youth, the studio offers red-light therapy that promotes collagen production for firm, smooth skin, and fights acne harder than a dermatologist with a soap-filled fire hose. The white lobby's glass shelves display nourishing lotions from Designer Skin and Swedish Beauty that aid the safe development of a rich, even color.
Visiting six bars in a single day usually results in a haggard appearance. But at The Body Bar, you can stop by six bars in anticipation of heading downtown for a seventh. That's because the staff specializes in beauty as its prime intoxicant, administering hair, nail, and other spa services at their respective stations. The Nail Bar gussies up fingers and toes with Minx adhesives or Gelish polish, both of which resist wear and tear for two weeks without the protection of fiberglass thimbles. At the Wellness Bar, massages soothe aches and the heat from an infrared sauna helps induce detoxifying sweat. Seasoned technicians strip away unwanted hair at the BeBare Bare, whereas the Blowout Bar’s stylists work with the hair you have, crafting quick new 'dos with washing and blow-drying. You can finish primping for a night on the town with a custom airbrush tan at the Bronze Bar, or head to the Beauty Bar for a makeup application, teeth-whitening treatment, or eyebrow and lash tint.
Diva Sprays' staff draws on seven years of color-mixing experience to custom blend UV-less tints from FDA-approved California Tan products. During a 10-minute procedure, clinicians evenly canvas skin using a steady airbrush that won't leave streaks or furtively graffiti backs with its initials. Bronze glows emerge within 24 hours and last for up to 10 days. Clients can also call upon Diva Sprays' mobile technicians for on-location bronzing services.
