Brothers Richard and Philip Samuel operate Maximum Tan, pitching in daily to maintain four levels of tanning equipment at seven salons. A computer system monitors the freshness of lamps in every lie-down and standup UV bed, tracking each bulb's hours so that it can be changed before the standard recommended time. The employees, who are trained in skincare, tanning hygiene, and equipment operation, can bronze bodies with custom airbrush tans or escort guests to self-operated VersaSpa booths. Each store is kept cool so that customers can stay comfortable after tanning sessions or long days babysitting electric blankets.
Realmonte's staff draws inspiration from the salon's name, which means "royal mountains" in Italian, and aims to give guests the royal treatment with each spray tan, manicure, pedicure, facial, and makeup application. With a modern art-deco interior design, jet-black furnishings add high contrast to the salon's walls, which are painted in hues of peach, sky blue, and pale yellow. Tranquil treatment rooms invite spa-goers to enjoy soft lights, plush blankets, and wormholes that lead to calmer dimensions.
Andy Arnold is nationally certified by National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork and licensed in New York. His clients snuggle up on a heated massage table and discuss with Andy where their bodies hurt and what kind of stress they're experiencing. This helps him decide how to customize their session and what kind of techniques—Swedish, deep-tissue, myofascial release, hot-stone therapy, pregnancy massage, or cranial sacral therapy—he will use. He then gets to work, often supplementing massages with warm lotion, jojoba oil, and hot stones at no additional cost. He particularly likes jojoba oil because it is great for the skin, and unlike other oils, it won't stain the client's clothes.

In January 2010, Posh Salon and Spa assembled a team of beauty professionals to pamper clients with upscale salon services. Each member of the styling team specializes in a field, exclusively offering haircare, nailcare, or skincare services. The salon’s image consultant creates fetching and unique looks with color and body analyses as well as makeup lessons that teach clients to highlight attractive features while downplaying eyebrows that spell out swear words.
Beach FX Suntans, Spa & Salon’s team of women’s stylists cuts and colors strands in front of large square mirrors. The salon’s tanning experts also keep busy, assigning clients to three levels of beds. Nearby, pedicure thrones await tired soles and bottles of colorful nail polish that yearn to smear streaks of red and magenta across their pristine surfaces.
