The neon hues decking each of Orlando Tan Company's private treatment rooms evoke a beachy feel, allowing guests to simulate the experience of sunbathing while getting a jumpstart on a sultry summer glow. Each room houses one of four levels of UV bed, which bolster the classic tanning experience with high-pressure bulbs, air-conditioning systems, and angled neck and shoulder tanners that even out the awkward color gained during outdoor handstands. Meanwhile, UV-free Mystic spray-tanning booths ensconce bodies in a spacious standup compartment that coats skin in alternating jets of pigmented mist and cool air to leave a weeklong golden sheen in fewer than 60 seconds. Behind the counter, the salon showcases a selection of tan-enhancing lotions, each of which works to prolong tawny hues by moisturizing skin, adding a touch of bronzer, and convincing skin cells that they're made of copper.
At Majestic Skin and Massage, it?s all about individuality. The team of massage therapists and aestheticians believes that no two people share identical skin types or muscular tension, and thus, no two people should receive identical facials or massages. Clients can pick from an extensive lineup of facials geared toward specific facial concerns, such as wrinkles, acne, or sensitive skin, before the aesthetician further customizes the treatment to fit the client?s unique skin type. Similarly, four massage modalities, including Thai, therapeutic, and chair massage, converge to root out kinks with tailored strokes that render each muscle softer than a pillow stuffed with smaller pillows.
Sondra Yonke has been styling hair for more than 20 years, though she just recently moved to the upstairs salon that is The Color Loft. In the center of this modern space, surrounded by bright crimson and slate-gray walls, she leads clients to her swiveling chair for custom haircuts and re-styling. She also transforms hair with single-process color and highlights, or simply restores its softness and sheen with conditioning treatments. Beauty products displayed on compact black cabinets and shelves aid Sondra in many of these services.
Amanda Phillips has 10 years of hair-cutting experience under her belt, as well as a certification as a Redken color specialist.

When Element Beauty Bar was founded, it focused on a simple but luxurious service: the salon blowout. The blowout bar still whirs with activity today, leaving tresses feathered, wavy, or sleek, but the service menu now encompasses just about any salon and spa treatment imaginable.
The team at Forever Trim Body Sculpting Center performs their new signature noninvasive Coolsculpting and face-lift procedures under the guidance of Dr. Michael Rodriguez. Drawing on a wealth of technology and leadership from Rodriguez, a fellow in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the center?s technicians reshape the body and tighten the skin. With a Zerona LipoLaser system, they emulsify stubborn fat on the waist, hips, and thighs, making it easier to wear skinny jeans or slip into a toaster while playing hide-and-seek. The Ulthera machine, on the other hand, performs a nonsurgical face-lift without significant pain or downtime.
