The OC Tan brings the sparkling soulshine lingering within each customer to the surface through a variety of tanning services. The Elixir tanning bed ($20 per session) envelops tanners in 51 body bulbs—one for each U.S. state—for 12 minutes of air-conditioned tanning. Disappear into the Mystic Tan spray booth ($35) as a pale newspaper reporter and emerge 60 seconds later as Supertan, the poorly named hero with a healthy glow. For those who love the taste of tanning bulbs but hate the sound of laying down, the Solarforce 652V ($20) offers a 10-minute tan in a stand-up unit that can accommodate clients up to seven feet tall. The ultimate in tan architecture at The OC Tan, however, is the King 420 bed ($40), which combines aromatherapy, aquatherapy, and a non-claustrophobic design into 12 minutes of high-pressure tanning. A five-minute airbrush tan is also available ($55), with custom application and results lasting up to a week.
Rockstar Tan's team of trained technicians darkens patrons to their preferred hues with a mélange of traditional and UV-free tanning options. MyMyst spray tans let robotic tanning techs enrobe skin in four variable shades of DHA, bronzers, and ground-up Malibu Barbies, with results that last up to one week. For even more customized sunless tans, trained technicians wield the Infinity Sun custom airbrush system, which incorporates a mixture of antioxidants and botanicals into a browning formula engineered to last from one to two weeks. Standup and bed-style models of three-star UV tanning booths are designed to reupholster birthday suits in as few as four to five 10-minute sessions—the same amount of time it takes the sun to turn a vampire into a bronzed beach lifeguard.
Euphoria Health and Beauty Bar quenches parched epidermises with rejuvenating skincare services, all deemed certifiably eco-friendly under the Eminence Green Spa Program. The bar’s 60-minute spa facial perks up fatigued facades with a multifaceted approach, combining personalized aromatherapy, acupoint massage, and enzyme treatment techniques. Like a three-sided triangle, this trifecta of facial care can be scaled and skewed to meet the demands of any sensitive, dry, or aging skin.
Personally trained by the owner, the experienced staff at Ketna’s Beauty & Threading preens and prettifies clients with an array of hair services. Threading employs a twisted piece of cotton to grasp and pluck strands from the skin all the way down to the root and follicle bomb shelter, creating a tidy, clean-cut hairline. Lasting 5–15 minutes per service and resulting in up to four weeks of hairlessness, threading ranges from eyebrow shaping ($7.99) and upper-lip hair removal ($5) to whisker extraction from the chin ($5+) and the neck ($5+).
You’ll never get caught lying down at BronzRepublic Tanning Spa. The spa shuns unreliable horizontal booths, in favor of four levels of stand-up tanning booths. Co-owner Scott W. wouldn’t dream of using anything else, preferring the stand-up variety because it is more sanitary and allows for 360-degrees of rays for an even tan. To make sure every client gets the best possible tan, the certified staff happily explain all the various tanning choices, which include UV-free options such as Mystic spray tans.
