Inside Tan Lines of Jupiter's bright salon, cool blue walls, tropical plants, and paintings of the ocean set a beachy backdrop for sunless tanning in private rooms. Powerful tanning beds include a standup machine, which promotes an even bronzing without tan lines. Traditional beds mimic the relaxing indulgence of a nap on the beach, with comfortable surfaces, a warm glow, and optional in-room seagulls. Customizable airbrush tans eschew UV rays in favor of Norvell spray tanner—made with mineral-salt bronzers—which imparts a natural glow by matching product to skin tone. Armed with lotions from Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, and Designer Skin, experienced staffers recommend the best beds based on skin type and desired final shade.
Helmed by Ellen Lillian, a master barber with more than three decades of experience, The Old Fashioned Barber Shop strives to return community and camaraderie to haircuts through traditional barbering. After moving the shop from its original outpost in New York, Lillian and her team of barbers and stylists swiftly went to work bestowing their specialization of flat tops, shaves, and beard trims on the Sunshine State, though their service menu also features cuts and colors for women. The traditional red, white, and blue pole spins outside, while inside, the space beams with the gloss of bulky leather barber chairs and the smiles of patrons enjoying complimentary beverages and lessons on how to use left-handed scissors.

Total Image Salon & Spa Oasis’s staff cossets clients’ bodies with a smorgasbord of scrubs, masks, and detox treatments that can help soften skin and prep pores for nutrient absorption. During the mineral salt scrub, beauty mavens rub bodies with a blend of mineral-laden sea salts, seaweed, natural oils, and botanical extracts to cleanse and exfoliate the skin, letting inner youthfulness and the pyramids of long-lost epidermal civilizations shine through. The gentler body-foliation therapy aims to soothe away dead cells, sunspots, and hyperpigmentation with a soft scrub of oatmeal and rice-bran powders. Pro pamperers ensconce clients in a warming wrap of tea-infused natural clays during the sea-mud therapy to help suck out toxins, stimulate circulation, and induce sympathy with golems.
Inside of her Kekki Chiropractic clinic, Dr. Tanya Kekki operates a smaller office that specializes solely in laser and skincare treatments. Experienced laser technicians use the filtered beam of the Palomar pulsed-light system to bust up follicles at their roots. Every treatment begins with a free initial consultation that lets techs give an expert opinion as to the effectiveness of the process for you, as well as answer any questions or taffy-wrapper riddles.
In addition to smoothing skin, they happily polish and nurture faces. Using Neova skin care products and chemical peels, they tailor treatments to specific skin complaints. They also harness the Palomar laser's IPL technology which, when applied to faces, décolletage, and arms, can erase sun and age spots, smooth uneven pigmentation, reduce the signs of visible veins, and scan for dormant superpowers.
