Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
The latest tanning technology and finest products await customers at Bronze Tan Studios, where high-quality beds, spray-tan booths, and a professional staff help transform sallow skin into burnished bodies. Shade shifters will appreciate a month of unlimited “Gold Club” tanning (a $49.99 value) with their choice of three different bed styles. Extra-pallid novices and 19th-century horror writers can build up their base tans with the Ultra Bed, which features three facial tanners and full-body cooling fans. The Booster Bed provides time-crunched tanners with excellent color upgrades in only 10 minutes, allowing them to quickly get back to evading police manhunts. Stand-up tanners, meanwhile, can darken their dermises while honing their observational humor in the no-contact Sundazzler while a high-performance dual-speed body fan alleviates flop sweat.
In the midst of invigorating cappuccino-colored walls, bold original artwork, and mirrors filled with smiling reflections, Phia Salon, an Aveda Lifestyle Salon, infuses hairs and pores with pure flower essences and plant-based botanical products. Four levels of talent are available to tackle every service, from an extensive list of cut and color services to hair extensions, waxing, and skin care. Each of their cut and color services is accompanied by a stress-relieving sensory experience that ranges from a mini facial to a soothing hand-and-arm massage.
Phia Salon extends Aveda's commitment to natural products and the environment to its own salon with eco-friendly business practices, such as constantly monitoring and recycling waste and using phosphate-free soaps. The salon’s cork floors are sustainably harvested and surrounded by eco-friendly paint on the walls, and the organic milk used in coffee and tea comes from local, grass-fed cattle who carpool to work.
The brainchild of independent entrepreneur Bianca Jackson, B-Lashes Beauty Parlor both distributes lashes for a leading overseas manufacturer and dispenses them at Bianca's storefront location, a "lash lounge" that specializes in eyelash extensions. Her staff of certified technicians enhances glances with synthetic mink and silk extensions selected by clients from a variety of colors, textures, sizes, and thicknesses. Unlike many brands, which deliver tacky-looking strips or thin lashes still bearing gluey residue, Bianca's lashes are lush and luxurious, adding naturally-looking body and volume to each sultry wink. That's why they're the lashes of choice for a who's who of notable local personalities. Specialized gels bond the formaldehyde-free lashes to existing natural lashes, with results lasting more than six weeks. Clients wear the extensions while showering, sleeping, and even chopping onions. In addition to offering lash enhancements, Bianca also bolsters looks with permanent-makeup applications and waxing services.
