Aiming to keep their clients looking and feeling great, Tropical Tans offers a variety of services, from B-12 injections and red-light therapy to custom airbrush tanning. Upon entering the low-lit, luxuriously appointed boutique, visitors can head back to private rooms to enter stand-up, lay-down, or hamster-wheel tanning beds. Or they opt for a restorative, UV-free session in one of the red-light-therapy beds.
Massage therapists, nail technicians, and aestheticians form the task force at Zeka Salon & Spa. Their mission: to help their clients look and feel their best. This may sound simple, but the team takes great care to ensure that every spa visit is a memorably relaxing one. Whether you're winding down with a massage in a dimly lit room or chatting with the technician as she carefully applies mink lashes, you'll never feel out of your element?that is, unless you want to. The stylists can drastically change your look with haircuts, highlights, and perms, making it easier to stop strangers in their tracks but harder to convince your mother that it's still you.
The marble-patterned side tables and gilded footbaths make Kenmore Happy Nails' pedicure chairs truly throne-like.

Each of Seattle Sun Tan's 39 locations spans between 2,000 and 4,000 square feet of space dedicated solely to the art of un-sunbathing. Washington-state tanners strut down immaculate hallways dotted with framed original paintings and contemporary artwork before settling into private rooms where they may acquire their desired shade while enjoying the sounds of their own music or prerecorded subliminal messages piped in through the iPod dock perched near each bed. The Smart Tan?certified staff guides clients in selecting which of the five levels of UV bed best fits their tanning needs and whether they desire a short tan time, prefer to stand up or lie down, or wish to bask beneath high-pressure face lamps. Shop shelves offer home tanners quality products from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty, whereas spray-tanning options from VersaSpa and SunFX both impart a natural-looking faux glow that takes mere minutes to apply and lasts for days.
Amai Day Spa’s staff specializes in a dizzying variety of aesthetic services, allowing clients to slip into a fuzzy robe and pad from technologically enhanced facial treatments to ancient reflexology sessions to precise henna-tattoo applications in a matter of minutes. A stable of licensed massage therapists stand by to deliver aromatherapy, hot-stone, and four-handed massages, and aestheticians provide traditional and luxury facials that enhance complexions with caviar, LED light, or bedtime stories about lotion-breathing dragons. Once they leave their private treatment rooms, clients can head to the lobby to discover a wealth of tools to maintain healthy skin at home, including designer products such as Skin Ceuticals and Pevonia Botanica.
