Tropi Tan does something the sun can’t. It tans bathing- and- birthday-suit-clad bodies throughout the year and keeps the golden glows coming until 9 p.m. or later on weeknights. Inside standup and lie-down tanning booths, clients relax as warm rays penetrate the skin and build a natural bronze in up to 20 minutes; a collection of lotions helps speed up the shade-shifting process and keeps skin looking healthy and moisturized. Those who prefer UV-free tanning can opt to hop in one of the studio's spray-tanning booths, which swap bulbs for a sugar-based solution that leaves skin golden and more kissable to horses for up to five days.
Captivation Hair Design's savvy stylists and aestheticians deliver classic and on-trend haircuts for clients of all ages, along with a full complement of relaxing spa services. During in-depth consultations, hairstylists confer with clients about their lifestyle and desired look before analyzing hair texture and face shape to engineer a haircut as unique as white-tiger paw prints. Stylists whip new coiffeurs into fresh-from-the-salon shape with a boost from products such as Big Sexy Hair, Moroccanoil, and Bed Head. The salon floor, adorned with hanging art and divided into individual styling booths, boasts a private spa treatment area set apart by heavy draped curtains. Clients relax in secluded massage rooms and pedicure chairs to enjoy restorative body-pampering services to rival napping in a bed of shea-butter-glazed marshmallows.
The team at Body & Sol Tanning Studios advises visitors on UV and UV-free tanning options, as well as directs tanners toward red-light skin-rejuvenation therapy. UV units range from the Exotic Sun 55 standup booth to the Sunboard XXT bed, which delivers 23,000 watts of light through lamps arranged to cover all four sides. For UV-free darkening, a Mystic Tan HD booth lets guests customize their desired color. To help clients maintain results, the staff recommends sheen-enhancing products such as Australian Gold lotions and Academy Award polish.
Though their names may be slightly different, the family of nail salons that is Comstock Nails, Lovely Nails, MI Nails, and Wyoming Nails have almost everything else in common. That includes a friendly staff, pedicure thrones with soothing jet tubs, and specialty nail services such as Shellac manicures. The last of these is a particular highlight—the specially formulated Shellac polish cures under UV light and resists chipping for up to two weeks. All three of the salons carry multiple colors of CND Shellac polish, including seasonal shades such as Sugared Spice and Deep-Fried Turducken.
