Back in 1999, brothers David and Rick Kueber noticed a lag in business at their chain of video-rental shops during the summer months, when no one wanted to be cooped up inside watching movies. The two put their heads together and found a rather unconventional solution to their problem: tanning beds. They installed a new fleet of skin-bronzing machines and sat back as so many clients flocked to their shop that the brothers were forced to open an entire store just to cater to their clients? tanning demands. This was the birth of Sun Tan City. Today, what started as an experimental side business boasts more than 200 locations across 16 states.
The staff at each location maintains a meticulously clean space, where they show clients to UV beds dubbed fast, faster, fastest, and instant. The beds include features such as facial tanners and self-contained air conditioners. Alternatively, clients can opt for the UV-free, automated VersaSpa system, which swathes physiques in a DHA, plant-based bronzing solution. The liquid reacts naturally with skin?s amino acids, creating an even coat as radiant as the high beams on Helios?s chariot within 46 seconds.

Blowouts: Hot Air with a Purpose
Sure, you can blow-dry your hair at home, but it likely won?t be quite the same as a salon blowout. Find out why with Groupon?s look into the blowout?s sleek mystique.
There?s something like old-time alchemy going on every time someone gets a blowout. Take a couple of elemental ingredients?wind and heat?combine them with a professional?s trained hand and strong wrist, and you end up with something precious: movie-star hair. The actual process is simple: the stylist washes the hair, then blow-dries it in small sections to the client?s specifications, often using a round brush to create smooth volume. The result might be straight, wavy, or purposely tousled, and it can be such a look changer that some women refrain from washing their hair for days afterward to maintain the glamour. Many people find the service so valuable they return to the salon for it between haircuts, sometimes several times a week.
In some ways, this practice is a throwback to the beauty parlors of the past, where women would drop in weekly to have their hair styled and set. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis used to get her hair blown out three times a week in the 1960s and 1970s; today, reportedly, so do celebs such as Kate Middleton and Gwyneth Paltrow. To keep up with demand, blowout-only salons have popped up in the last few years, dedicating all their chairs to the service.
Located in an 1,800 sq. ft. salon, Headley & Crawford Salon & Spa?both a Lanza and Dermalogica concept spa?places an emphasis on personalized care which underscores their expansive menu of beauty treatments. Take, for instance, the facials and chemical peels, which begin with a consultation and skin analysis to identify and brainstorm a treatment plan for problems such as blemishes or pores clogged with dead leaves. And the massage treatments are all prefaced by a postural assessment with the therapist to determine which modality is best suited to the client's body or relaxation needs. The meticulous attention to detail extends to the salon side of the business as well, where an emphasis on hygienic practices sees nail technicians sending clients home with single-use files and stylists sending freshly styled strands home perched atop the same head they came in on.
