The experts at each Soleil Tan Spa believe the less they see clients, the better they're doing their jobs. They design efficient tanning plans that render skin sun-kissed in as little time as possible.
The staff might recommend several types of tanning beds to accomplish this feat, such as the P-90 Combo bed with high-pressure lamps that, like a hug from King Midas, imbue every square inch of skin with a golden glow. They might also recommend custom spray sessions within Mystic Tan HD booths. The tanning consultants can enhance any session with a selection of lotions designed to hydrate skin and darken the tan.
Tan World Des Moines offers a range of bronzing options designed to get customers' glows noticed year-round. Defy winter's dullness with treatments designed to deliver natural-looking even tans. Customers preparing to dog-sit sun spots or soothe solar flares can opt for the 15-minute escape tanning session, sure to build a base solid enough for prolonged contact with the sun's beams. The premiere tanning session offers a 12-minute soak in the artificial rays, and the elite bed gets busy sun-seekers in and out in 12–16 minutes. For fans of waterfall mist, humidifiers, and the light kiss of hairspray, a one-minute spray tan creates a beautiful glow for any body.
Salon 86 is a full-service salon and spa that offers a plethora of services, including custom cuts, coloring, makeup applications, and facials. Tangled tresses can be snipped and shaped by a member of the salon's polished posse of scissor-wranglers. Or, modify your mop with a splash of all-over color, partial-foil highlights, or a permanent straightening. Remove excess hair completely with a waxing service, or put a good face on with a nourishing and hydrating aromatherapy facial. Those wishing to cultivate close-cropped locks into luxuriant hair gardens can consult with a stylist to discuss a set of glue-in or sew-in extensions.
Located in a studio, Headley & Crawford Salon & Spa—both a Lanza and Dermatologica 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 polishes and stylists sending freshly styled strands home perched atop the same head they came in on.
Jessica Sage and Tonya Vincent, the licensed aestheticians behind Skin Transformation, cosset visages with an array of treatments powered by Image skincare products. Jessica leverages her 10 years of experience as she targets signs of aging, as well as skin damage caused by burns, scarring, and exposure to nature documentaries. Working in tandem, Tonya, a graduate of the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis, channels her knowledge into microdermabrasion treatments, chemical peels, and spray-tan sessions. The duo also offers advanced treatments, such as microphototherapy, which uses light and heat energy to clear pigmented lesions, boost collagen, and jump-start evolution in a way that's far more effective than sewing thumbs on a pet rock.
