Banana Beach Tan wants to darken the world?by making it shine with the brilliance of a beautiful bronze glow. The tanning center helps clients acquire natural-looking tans gradually through the use of beds or in an instant through the use of advanced spray-tan technology. During UV-tanning sessions, clients relax in beds by Matrix or Alpha. Inside the Mystic tanning or Versa Pro booth, patented jets evenly coat the skin with a solution designed to leave a natural-looking glow. And from within the comforts of the Pure Collagen booth, red light therapy restores cellular activity and skin elasticity.
After shaping her aesthetic skills at resort spas in the Caribbean, Katrina Brown retreated to the mainland to create Kat Eyes, where semi-permanent eyelash extensions, custom organic facials, soy-based waxing services, and bridal spa packages enhance physiques. As a certified Xtreme Lashes specialist, Katrina thickens lash lines by bonding a variety of natural-looking strands to each eyelid's original fringe, employing a specialized glue and trust exercises. Her firm stance on using quality products has led her to refresh faces with Éminence Organic Skin Care products, which blend elixirs with vitamin-rich fruits, vegetables, and herbs plucked from Hungary's secret gardens.
Andrea Stephens Dunn, owner of Beautiful Image, has performed thousands of permanent makeup applications in her prolific career as a cosmetic artist. She is both a Certified Dermal Technologist and Fellow of the American Academy of Micropigmentation and she uses her talents to fill in sparse brows, pale lips, and paint-by-number eyelids with natural-looking hues.
Andrea is joined at her studio by licensed medical aesthetician Abby Hern, a champion of healthy, youthful skin and dermal education. After graduating with honors from the Georgia Career Institute in 2008, she has since broadened her knowledge of facials, waxing, chemical peels, and medical-grade skin care products while working at Beautiful Image. Her specialities include correcting hyperpigmention, acne, fine lines, and wrinkles. Karen Rinkiewicz, a licensed medical aesthetician and 2006 graduate from the Atlanta School of Aesthetics, works in tandem with the team while focusing on anti-aging procedures, including laser therapy and skin analysis.
Airbrush tanning performed by hand. Teeth whitening with hydrogen-peroxide gel. Stainless steel or titanium body piercing. Tattooing by an experienced artist who specializes in black-and-white realism. At Bella Bronze, the team's talents reach beyond typical salon offerings. They welcome patrons into their hygienic but comfortable environs, custom designing realistic-looking tattoos or outfitting bodies with natural tans that eschew the common streaking ingredient found in most spray tans—tears from an orange.
At Elite Tan, even the lower-level beds have built-in luxuries, such as a sound system, a facial lamp, and a tanning time of no more than 15 minutes. If you want a UV-free tan, the salon also has customized spray tans and a Mystic tanning booth. But it isn't just a collection of high-tech tanning machines?trained consultants greet every customer, helping them to analyze their skin type and choose an appropriate tanning regimen.
