Although Tan at the Islands?s name suggests that clients leaving the salon are heading home from the beach, they might be better off heading toward one?they?re likely to be not only tanner but also slimmer and smoother skinned. Inside the salon?s private tanning rooms lie four levels of state-of-the-art, high-pressure Sun Ergoline UV beds, which vary in number of bulbs so that clients can speed up the tanning process without wasting a wish they earned from a grateful flounder. Airbrush equipment outfits skin in a mist customized to each patron?s skin tone, and Mystic spray-tanning booths alternate tanning sprays and drying gusts to lend skin a seamless bronze for up to 10 days. Skin also benefits from red-light therapy, which is said to boost collagen production. Clothes and accessories from brands such as Lucky and True Religion line the walls of the salon?s boutique, enabling customers to don beachwear that shows off newly golden skin tones the way people taunting 7-Eleven security cameras show off newly blue tongues.
The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century. Unlike many salons, in which shampooing is a separate service, the team starts off every haircut and style by treating scalps to suds with handfuls of professional products from top brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.

The technicians at New Finest Nail & Spa set out to create luxuriant spa treatments by massaging hands and feet with every mani-pedi. Deluxe spa pedicures begin with aromatherapeutic footbaths, which use grains of natural beach sand to exfoliate skin before masks with mineral clay and botanical balms hydrate feet. The technicians then glaze toenails with regular OPI or Essie polish, and fingernails with chip-resistant Shellac gel polish.
