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.
The skillful stylists at Salon R & Spa know how to craft winning looks, including gussying up beauty queens for Miss Teen USA and Miss Hawaii USA pageants. With these glamorous credentials in hand, Salon R's stylists strive to give all of their clients the same star treatment as they care for hair with cuts, smoothing keratin treatments, Japanese perms, and delicate updos. Elsewhere in the salon, qualified aestheticians wax unwanted hair and apply makeup to make peepers pop and mouths drool over themselves, and massage therapists ease tension with deep-tissue techniques.
Since 1988, the deal-hunters at Dry Clean Super Saver have connected customers with a trustworthy network of dry-cleaning and automotive-repair technicians.

The association of participating cleaners and garages stretches across the country, ensuring that cardholders can remove stains from a dress shirt or change an oil filter wherever they happen to be.
