Pura Vida Tans swaddles pale bodies in bronze blankets of both ultraviolet and spray-on pigmentation. Two sessions in the walk-in Mystic Tan spray system anoint anatomical armor with a warm mist of airbrushed colorants and moisturizers that adhere and evaporate in just 15 minutes, leaving a light or dark glow in their wake (up to a $43.30 value for medium/dark level, including tax). Traditional tanners can slide into clean, modern SunDash body toasters with a Pura Vida basic membership for Level 1 burnishing that sets skin aglow from head to foot with specialized facial tanners, allowing skin to reap the benefits of beach exposure for a full month without the sun’s awkward, burny kisses (a $54.95 value, including tax). Pura Vida's storefront sets a bright, tropical stage for both tanning options, with palm-tree art and fluorescent walls psyching skin up for a summer of Midas-touched fun.
In Turkish, the name of Lynn Garavaglia's studio, dolunay––pronounced doe-loon-eye––means "full moon." But while the moon's full beauty may wax or wane throughout the month, Lynn's permanent-makeup services ensure her clients remain at their most radiant at all times. Working out of Audra Ballard Salon, Lynn uses a tattoo-like technique to enhance eyes, lips, and brows with feature-flattering pigments that won't wash off or smudge. She can also apply the technique to correct pigment abnormalities, cover traditional tattoos, or camouflage scars caused by a cut or magical-wand fight, as well as to create new areolae for those who have undergone reconstructive surgery.
