Owning a tanning salon in Hawaii means having to compete with miles and miles of free coastal sunshine. That’s why the owners of No Tan Lines, Alysin and Lyssa, offer much more than tanning services; they want to give each client their personal attention through other beauty-bolstering treatments, including red-light-therapy. Before each age-defying session, they consult with clients on their desires, whether it’s to vanquish acne bacteria, firm up wrinkles, or improve muscle stiffness. Between services they offer clients beverages.
When they are not turning back the clock for clients, they gear their tanning services to provide the comfort and convenience not available on the beach. Each of the three levels of beds come equipped with fans to keep clients cool throughout the 12-to 20-minute sessions. Face lamps in all three types of bed get faces glowing with energy specifically calibrated for facial skin to prevent the reddening that often occurs outdoors due to the sun’s intense rays or dive-bombing seagulls.
J Boutique Salon & Spa's Hazel Lee has been glamorizing guises for multiple decades and uses her expert hand to transform less-than-lush lashes into long, feathery peeper plumes. Applying Robert Reese extensions, Hazel attaches approximately 20–25 individual lashes to top lids using medical-grade lash glue to boost seductive appeal in the eyes of passing optometrists. After the initial appointment––which typically takes 30–45 minutes––clients take home a maintenance card with helpful tips and tricks to ensure the longevity of the extensions. After sauntering around town with a newly acquired swagger and a more winsome wink for about two weeks, patients pay Hazel a second visit to touch up any optic tresses that have naturally shed. To ensure that new blinker blinds adhere after application, the salon recommends steering clear of water for 24–48 hours and resisting the urge to french-braid them.
At J Boutique Salon & Spa, the stylists cut, color, and coif locks with the mindset that beautiful hair builds confidence, and that each guest should leave with just that—beautiful, confident-inspiring tresses. In addition to hair services, the staff helps beautify clients with facials, makeup, waxing, and nailcare.

Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists; use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry, and lean back and dream of breakdancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways.
