The reflections of fluorescent lights sparkle off glossy floors at Electric Sun Tanning Salons, but the vibrant interior is not the space's most notable use of light. The salon boasts a fleet of tanning beds with five different levels of bronzing intensity for tanners of all complexions. For a UV-free alternative, guests can enter the standup booth of the VersaSpa spray-tanning system, which coats bodies in an even, natural-looking tan.

In business more than 25 years, Amy's Beauty salon deftly removes unflattering fuzz with hair waxing and signature eyebrow threading treatments. Clients can also solicit a skilled aesthetician for a relaxing facial, ornamental henna tattoo, or a make up session to convince your friends you lost a boxing match.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Transform Age Management helps clients stuck in the middle of their aesthetic journey, providing cosmetic solutions that transcend the results possible with traditional skincare regimes, but stop short of surgery. Executive director and founder Sasha Parker draws upon 25 years of experience spent working as a nurse, assistant surgical administrator, and medical aesthetic trainer to helm a team of doctors and registered nurses who help clients look and feel their best. The collection of beauty services ranges from hydrafacials, peels, and age-fighting dermal fillers to laser therapies that can remove unwanted hair, tighten facial skin, or etch important dates into the brain. If one’s compass does point to the surgical route, clients can find direction from board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. F. Leigh Phillips, who performs everything from abdominoplasty to full and partial face-lifts.
