Behind the hallway of silver-plated doors stand Tanning Image’s fleet of traditional and UV-free booths, each outfitted with their own private room. A trained staffer helps customers select the proper stand-up capsule, which can range in four levels of intensity and three levels of emotional support. The UV-free Mystic chamber’s automatic nozzles evenly spray skin surfaces in light, medium, or dark hues that replicate a sun-kissed glow for up to eight days. Tanning Image also houses a red-light-therapy chamber designed to firm skin by fueling underlying collagen production or stuffing cheeks with as many grapes as possible.

Caribbean Beach Club’s tanning technicians provide services and access to equipment that negate their clients’ need to sit in the sun in order to obtain a natural glow. The studio's level one, two, or three tanning beds allow guests to brandish a UV-based glow in quick 15 to 20-minute sessions. For a UV-free tan, organic airbrush tanning services apply a darkening formula that mimics the look of a natural tan much better than self-applied creams or constant blushing. The staff also offers anti-aging red light therapy treatments, and stocks a variety of tanning lotions, jewelry, candles, and gifts.

With whimsical wall decals, pink and white draperies, and treatment beds upholstered in shimmering satin, Stylash looks more like a doll's dream house than a stuffy salon. It's a fitting setting for the shop's aestheticians, who use hypoallergenic glue and an extra-light touch to doll up lash lines with long, individual eyelash extensions that can last up to one month. But the comfy, feminine atmosphere also serves a purpose—the more relaxed clients are, the better their eyelashes adhere. To that end, the staff recommends that clients keep talking and yodeling to a minimum during application and encourages them to bring in personal music players to help quiet their minds.
