"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who’s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that’s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance and leaving only a thin landing strip or functional tarmac in its wake. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
At Julian Hans Hair Salon, strand-savvy owners Rosemary and Saverio Ravenda and their hair-honing team creatively shape untamed tresses and fickle follicles with an array of hair services. Tress treatments begin with a hair consultation followed by a relaxing scalp massage that encourages tangled manes to loosen from tense pyramid formations. Once strands are squeaky clean, a professional trimmer shapes strands into a complementing head blanket that fits your personality and skull bedframe. Skillful styling coaxes crafted coifs into retracting their job applications for work on other heads. Julian Hans Hair Salon’s oasis of gold and black accents presents an upscale setting, while the welcoming stylists ensure a comfortable atmosphere. To keep their techniques up to speed, the crew of trained stylists regularly participate in ongoing training through Julian Hans Hair Salon programs as well as Redken New York classes.

Every salon claims that their tanning formula is one-of-a-kind. But at Unique Tan, it's actually true—owner Sherrie Lee Meredith developed it herself. Her signature spray-tanning blend, Unique Excellence, tints skin with a paraben-free solution of organic aloe vera, berry essences, and a firming serum to stave off the signs of aging. The formula also contains erythrulose, which can produce a longer-lasting bronze glow, and, because it's alcohol-free, helps keep skin moisturized and streak-free. The salon's Smart Tan–certified staff uses this in both automated booths and custom airbrushing sessions, which harness the steady hand of a tanning artist to ensure tans completely cover skin and finally even the score with haughty bronze statues.
The salon also offers traditional UV-tanning beds, which contain comfort-adding amenities such as air conditioning, aromatherapy, adjustable facial bulbs, and easy-to-follow voice instructions. Clients can enhance their tans with the salon's line of tan-accelerating products, which extend the life of each tan by keeping skin moisturized and healthy.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. Sessions take place in private rooms that line a column-flanked hallway, where five different levels of UV beds give skin the perfect level of tanning. Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless-tanning systems imbue clients with a hydrating, natural-looking glow, which can be customized according to skin tone, desired shade, and spirit animal. A full-time cleaning staff keeps each center in pristine conditions by referencing a 50-point inspection system. Most locations have books, televisions, and kids’ play areas to keep children entertained while adults are bronzing.
Timea Tokes’s built her 20-year career on the belief that what touches your skin matters. At Timea’s European Skin Care, she and aesthetician Andrea Kramer put that belief to practice by judiciously choosing the tools and products that power their facial and waxing services. For example, their signature facial revitalizes skin with ingredients from Éminence Organic Skin Care products, and the Repêchage facial adds moisture back into parched surfaces with multiple layers of European seaweed. The spa duo also dabbles in tech-savvy components, including the FSD microphototherapy’s light and heat energy and the Bio-Ultimate firming facial’s microcurrents and robot tears.
