Airbrush tanning performed by hand. Teeth whitening with hydrogen-peroxide gel. Stainless steel or titanium body piercing. Tattooing by an experienced artist who specializes in black-and-white realism. At Bella Bronze, the team's talents reach beyond typical salon offerings. They welcome patrons into their hygienic but comfortable environs, custom designing realistic-looking tattoos or outfitting bodies with natural tans that eschew the common streaking ingredient found in most spray tans—tears from an orange.
Those seeking a sun-kissed look choose from two options at Copper Bottom Tanning Salon. They can recline in tanning beds, where UV rays draw out stores of melatonin as fans provide a cooling breeze, or forego tanning beds’ bulbs for a Pura Sunless spray tan, which mists skin with color that can last up to a week.
Master cosmetologist and salon owner Manisha Mehta takes pride in delivering a sweeping range of beauty and grooming services infused with luxurious touches. Full-length facials incorporate rich ingredients such as 24-karat gold or chocolate, and facial peels immerse visages in fruit and vegetable medleys without the need for surreptitious head dunks into a punch bowl. Issuing from Mehta's fervent interest in the healing and restorative powers of herbs, most full facials are accompanied by a custom aromatherapy blend. Alongside eyelash extensions and waxing are ancient Eastern grooming services, such as eyebrow threading, ear candling, mummification, and henna designs for hands and feet. Dark wood and leather furnishings, deep-maroon walls, and gilt-framed mirrors and paintings lend the space a feeling of an urban retreat.
