Inside Salon M&D’s open and airy space, professionals beautify clients with a range of hair, nail, and skin services. Stylists rejuvenate ’dos with cuts, coloring, keratin sessions, and diamond hair treatments, which enliven dull, lifeless locks by replacing them with sparkling rubies. Elsewhere, nail techs spruce up fingers and toes with mani-pedis, and massage therapists knead tense muscles in appointments ranging from 30 to 90 minutes. Aestheticians wax unwanted hair from bodies and apply cleansing facials and skin-brightening peels.
Deena went into the spray-tan business after seeing the effects of too much suntanning on her sister. She wanted to offer a convenient and safe alternative, and so she created her mobile spray-tanning service. Today, she spritzes clients with an allergen-, gluten-, and organic tanning solution that can last up to seven days.
Basking in the Sun combines the benefits of lounging outdoors with the luxuriant comforts of an indoor day spa. Upon entering the front lounge, guests are encouraged to sip a glass of water, coffee, or tea, or savor a small piece of candy before indulging in one of the spa’s tanning services. Seven UVA/UVB tanning beds, ranging from level one to level four, allow patrons to develop a healthy, bronzed base or maintain an existing tan long after swimsuit season ends. For UV-free tanning options, Basking in the Sun also employs a custom spray tan specialist.
A deep, healthy bronze hue floods customers' skin about four to six hours after expert technicians spritz bodies with Toto Creations' airbrush tanning solutions. That's because the DHA in the organic, aloe-based spray tan reacts with the amino acids in the outer layers of the skin, causing the bronze hues to appear. Technicians carefully apply the spray to ensure no drips or streaks, customizing the color to best suit each client's body type and distance from the nearest beach or roof that gets a lot of sun.
