Trendz the salon spa owner Alana Ficco holds licensing in nail care, skincare, management, and teaching, all of which qualifies her to lead a team of beauty professionals who groom nails, knead out tension, and cleanse skin. Perhaps a particular highlight of the team's service menu is the wide range of body treatments; there are a dozen distinct masks and wraps, including a cocoa bean scrub and a Caribbean therapy treatment infused with the Aveda skincare products the spa favors.
The spa also hosts a beauty boutique stocked with jewelry, shoes, and handbags. The boutique's bath bombs allow guests to indulge at home, and its supply of soaps that look like cupcakes thwarts people who make a living selling stolen desserts to the mafia.
Technicians at Sun Savvy Sunless Tanning custom blend Evolv tanning solutions for each client according to color preference and skin type. They also use heated airbrush machines to make the spray-tanning session as comfortable as possible.
Anytime Tan Tanning Club first powered up its trio of German-made tanning beds in September, 1985, during the peak of the decade’s indoor-tanning boom. But just as bulky car phones and shoulder pads have faded away in the years that followed, Anytime Tan Tanning Club has stayed on top of trends by acquiring the latest equipment for its eight area locations.
The staff members at each location can pair clients with all manner of machines, from powerful Ergoline beds and booths to innovative sunless-tanning solutions from VersaSpa. For added vanity, most of the salon’s locations offer professional teeth-whitening services. And the Robinson location even provides Evolv sunless tanning and innovative red-light therapy, which aims to diminish signs of aging or the fact that someone enjoys napping on pizzas.
Avanti offers a cornucopia of facial services, including the half-hour medical mini facial, which cleanses, steams, and massages your skull-sheath before applying a therapeutic mask tailored to your skin type. The treatment costs $75 by itself, but only $45 if you combine it with another service such as the microdermabrasion ($125), a skin-freshening technique that gently sandblasts the skin with tiny crystals before sucking up the fallen enemy cells with a vacuum. A few microdermabrasion treatments will help facial skin recover from the sun's savage Pesci-like pummeling—staving off the effects of aging in the process by removing fine lines and unwanted pigmentation.
The culmination of more than two decades of research by Wolff Tanning’s experts, the four SunVision Pro tanning beds at Ultimate Bronze II darken skin tones with the help of lotions and accelerators by Australian Gold, Supre Tan, and other professional brands. Similarly, the salon’s spray tans imbue bodies with an even, natural-looking glow that helps clients stand out on the beach or blend in with stacks of pennies when the vault guards make their nightly rounds.
Though Ultimate Bronze II sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
