After purchasing the original Hawaiian Tan location in Forest Lake in 2006, Fred and Debbie Newburg renovated the salon from the ground up, outfitting it with brand new tanning beds, computers, and vacation vibes. As their venture flourished, they added bodywork treatments to the menu of services and re-christened the business "Hawaiian Tan and Massage". Now with two locations and a full roster of UV tanning, airbrush tanning, and therapeutic massage offerings, they keep area bodies bronzed and relaxed seven days a week.
The team at StoneWater Massage & Skin Care strives to help clients release weeks', months', or even a year’s worth of tension with therapeutic skin and body treatments. Therapists unwind muscles with an array of massage techniques as well as Active Isolated Stretching and a steam sauna. They can also surround clients in a cocoon of warmth with body wraps and brush away sun-parched skin cells with salt glows and sugar scrubs. Each of their spacious treatment rooms features colors and decor related to one of the four elements: air, water, fire, and fresh-laundry smell.
Leah Skurdal believes that reaching a state of true relaxation requires more than massage. That's why at Mastery in the Art of Living, she helps her clients focus on mind, body, and spiritual connections through a combination of massage and energy-balancing techniques. Her massages promote inner healing and stress-relief with options for soothing aromatherapy or sound therapy?both of which are complimentary with the first session. Additionally, Leah can share her intuitive takes on what might best work for body, mind, and spirit connections at that particular moment.

As the founder of BB MakeUp, Brooke Fleetwood's reach is huge: she travels all over the country (and sometimes outside of it) to pamper and prep her clients. But once she's with them, her focus narrows. Each appointment is meticulously personalized, from color selection to application. During makeup lessons, Brooke also her client's makeup collection to ensure they own the right colors for their complexions, aren't using expired cosmetics, and know the proper techniques for whittling a brow pencil in the wilderness.
Stocked with BB's own brand of products, Brooke's Makeup Cosmetic Bars provide touch-ups and special-event services of all stripes. Brides-to-be undergo airbrushing, models primp before editorial photoshoots, and friends get glamorous makeovers for nights on the town. Some stores also have a spa where guests can clarify their skin with a facial or clear away unwanted hair with a wax.
Fresh Face Loftique's owners Ann Slanga and Kara Huelsmann know what it takes to look good. Ms. Slanga has spent the last decade as an aesthetician, during which time she's honed her craft in spa facilities around the world, from San Francisco to Saint-Malo, France. Similarly, Ms. Huelsmann has spent more than 20 years in the industry and has worked alongside dermatologists and plastic surgeons.
These experiences guide the aestheticians at Fresh Face Loftique. Just by looking at a client's face, they know the right blend of masks, toners, and cleansers that will give skin the youthful glow of a freshly picked light bulb. The staff might also recommend slimming body wraps or a full-body exfoliation, which uses seawater crystals to scrub away dead skin. Other standout services include massages with modalities such as hot-stone therapy.
