Though tanning can be relaxing, it can also be time-consuming. Tanning on the Edge's service menu was designed for people who want to tan but may have limited time. During 12- to 15-minute sessions in the tanning beds, guests stay cool and relaxed with circulating air and a satellite radio. A vertical booth accommodates patrons who prefer to tan while standing or who don’t understand how to turn the party sub they are carrying lengthwise.
Nearby, a full lineup of spa services make sure guests are radiant from head to toe. Cosmetologists use Pharmagel and Repêchage products in spa facials designed to clear up acne, firm aging faces, or simply boost radiance. Nail experts turn up the luxury on manicures and pedicures with add-ons such as paraffin dips, acrylic tips, and nail gems, while waxing specialists remove fuzz from nearly any area of the body to make tans stand out.
TAN'R YOU was voted the Best Tanning in Milwaukee for 2008 and 2009 by CityVoters, who cited its accommodating facilities and fully air-conditioned tanning beds. A gold-colored floor ushers pale hides down a hallway of individual bronzing rooms stocked with top-of-the-line pigmentation machinery. The High Pressure MATRIX bed is an import from Italy that tans in 12 minutes while treating clients to music from its CD player / stereo and using high-pressure negotiating tactics to send paleness packing. For those who have already positioned their real sleeping bed directly under their bedroom's sunniest window, the Cabana Mist tanning booth provides a convenient vertical service while evenly painting the body with smooth shades of spring and summer.
The accommodating staff at The Cutting Edge Salon uses their talented hairstylists to snip away at overgrown coiffures and perform a variety of mane-manipulating services, including single-process color, texturing, and styling. Clients can continue beauty regimens at home with the salons' collection of Redken products available for purchase. Outside hair services, the salon furnishes both of its locations with 40 clean and thoroughly inspected private UV tanning beds, allowing the team to collectively bronze visitors one small army at a time. The four tiers of tanning beds each contain face and body light bulbs that vary in number and intensity, and grant tanners a luxuriously gold exterior without pushing them into King Tut's sarcophagus. Those eschewing UV rays step into the salons' automated Magic spray-tan booths, which engulf bodies in three shades of tanning solution for an even, streak-free tan with head-to-toe coverage.
