Allergic to the sun but addicted to tanning, Jeani Roth founded Faux Glow—a bronzing boutique dedicated to giving clients a UV-free alternative to traditional tanning methods. Since opening in 2003, the business's organic sunless tanners and custom spray-tan services have garnered praise from the likes of NBC's Today and Allure magazine.

Salojona Beauty Center's founder, Ana Pena, and her team of LPG-trained technicians instill confidence in both women and men with the aid of advanced cellulite-reduction treatments. FDA-approved Endermologie sessions use automated rollers and lifting technology to encourage lymphatic drainage and stimulate collagen production, resulting in decreased dimples on the skin on hips and thighs. Salojona's team can also beautify with permanent makeup to make features pop with a natural look, and facials—including rejuvenating and light-massage varieties—come in a diverse array of packages designed to suit clients' needs. Eyelash-curling services further define the eye area, whereas brow-design waxing keeps the focus off unwanted stray hairs not yet taken down to the pound.
