Though only one accent wall drenched in lilac disrupts Paris Skin Care Center of Hoboken?s all-white d?cor, you won?t be missing color. It appears within the kaleidoscopic palettes at the cosmetics counter, manned by professional makeup artist and owner, Sofia. Using both airbrush and traditional techniques, she makes eyes pop with shadow, gives lips a glossy sheen, and contours cheekbones worthy of a ventriloquist?s dummy?all while masking blemishes. Semi-permanent lash extensions, in either basic or dramatic styles, complete freshly made faces. And though makeup is Sofia?s forte, clients will also want to check out her other spa services. She uses an extra-gentle blend of beeswax and cotton-oil, for example, to minimize irritation and ingrown hairs during full-body waxes, and shoos away stress and muscle pain with deep-tissue and aromatherapy massages.
As the tanning bed's lid closes, a cool breeze starts to blow, a gentle mist cools your skin, and the scents of aromatherapy transform a 12-minute tanning session into a miniature vacation. This S-Class bed is just one of the approximately 10 tanning options that fill City Sun Tanning. Staffers help clients select the right bed, leading them down hallways to an iBed sunbed?which features rotating facial lights?or a X-2 High Pressure bronzing stand-up, which can bronze pallid skin in ten minutes. Alternatively, visitors step onto the AutoBronzer's open-air platform, which evenly sprays UV-free tanning solution. In June of 2009, this sunless system caught the eye of New York Magazine, which lauded City Sun Tanning for having one of the "top five spray tans." The tanning salon has also garnered accolades from Citysearchers, who for several years, named it "Best of Citysearch".
Beach Bum Tanning's high-tech beds, sunless booths, and tailored beauty treatments regularly appear in press outlets such as Allure magazine. The salon's heated Mystic HD booths spritz bodies with vibrant pigment while warming skin to ensure optimal and even color saturation without having to bear-hug King Midas. Certified Airbrush Artists also implement customized airbrush tans over 150 ways by using a combination of fine-point-guided and wide-point-guided guns to shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to the body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
Beauty by Rachel
Tanning expert Rachel Isaacson delivers custom tans in about 30 minutes with her mobile beautifying equipment. After quickly setting up a private tanning tent to keep healthy glows from spreading to furniture, Isaacson airbrushes organic, skin-tinting ingredients onto human canvases. The considerate tanner provides disposable garments and flip-flops for patrons who opt not to wear their own bathing suit. The carefully applied hue lasts up to seven days or longer, depending on time spent exercising, showering, or living in an air tunnel.
