The marble-patterned side tables and gilded footbaths make Kenmore Happy Nails' pedicure chairs truly throne-like. The staff members work to make their clients feel like royalty while rendering manicures, pedicures, and other spa treatments such as waxing and eyelash extensions. They also specialize in permanent makeup, filling in lip lines and eyebrows.
The seasoned staffers at Noble Hair and Nails put their more than two decades of beauty experience to use revamping 'dos with scissors and coloring products, removing unwanted hair with wax, and beautifying nails with coats of OPI and China Glaze gel polishes. As an added flourish, nail techs can also hand paint intricate designs on each digit, such as animal prints or favorite Euclidean algorithms. They also carry this attention to detail over into pedicure services, which they perform at the foot of one of three leather thrones or one child-size chair. In addition to hosting youngsters having a spa day with their moms, this mini-pedicure chair—adorned with a vibrant bear design and pink pedicure bowl—adds a burst of color to the salon's black-and-tan décor.
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.
Electrolysis by Vanessa's experienced, eponymous technician banishes unwanted body hair with the thermolysis variation of electrolysis. After an informative consultation determines a proper plan of action, the aesthetician wields a thin, needle-like probe designed to heat and demolish connective tissues that facilitate hair growth. The fuzz-removing process aims to carefully interrupt hair's life cycle by blasting follicles with alternating currents and forcing them to go back to kindergarten during retirement. Women can maintain a smooth bikini line, while men can keep lonely eyebrows from holding hands. A relaxing, spa-like environment surrounds patients during their depilating sessions, and all clients receive treatment with their own probe, ensuring all equipment is as clean and sterile as a freshly laundered bar of soap.
Contrary to popular belief and science, healthy human nails aren't supposed to grow; they should remain static, glossy, and the color of your choice. But most of us contracted a disease from playground equipment that makes our nails grow at alarming rates, lose their luster, cease to be our favorite color, and become unattractively translucent.

The staff at Desert Sun Tanning work to tone the face and body, detoxify, and increase metabolism through red-light-therapy sessions and infrared body wraps. Some Desert Sun Tanning locations employ the far-infrared-heat body wrap in 50-minute treatments, during which heat-activated silicone treatment pads latch onto thighs, hips, abdomen, and arms. At other locations, patrons lie inside the Fit Bodywrap's sleeping-bag-like device for 60 minutes, gossiping and stifling giggles as the infrared rays sink in. Both wraps yield the same results, aiming to purge the body of toxins, increase metabolism, and burn calories lurking in the shadows of love handles. Fifteen-minute red-light-therapy sessions bathe the entire body in red-light waves measuring 633 nanometers, designed to attract nanoscopic surfers who trigger collagen production and reduce wrinkles with their laid-back lingo.
