If you opt for a full month of sun-soakedness, you'll get access to any of U Tan's beds. The state-of-the-art bronzing abode boasts four horizontal and one stand-up faux-sun soaker. The beds are clean and comfortable, and there's complimentary male/female deodorant and body spray in every room. If you opt for a UV-free melanin marinade, one of U Tan's pigment perfectionists will evenly spritz your skin with a safe, golden hue, giving it a natural glow rather than drowning it with a wash of orange that causes the other kids on the bus to call you Nickelodeon. U Tan's friendly staffers offer clients a bottle of water after each tan, so you'll never get dehydrated and try to bite raindrops. Spray tans are by appointment only; the tanning beds are available by appointment or walk-in. U Tan is open late (until 11 p.m.) when school is in session to restore the golden glow of students, nighthawks, and moonbeams.

Clients can sip on cool refreshments while reclining on a burgundy velvet couch amid antique accents and pale walls. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.

The stylists at Josie Studio One Salon come armed with a diverse lineup of haircare products, which spans from Moroccan Oil solutions for conditioning hair to American Crew products designed especially for men. They also call on Redken's popular line of styling and color products—appropriate enough considering their ranks include a hair colorist certified by Redken Fifth Avenue New York. When the stylists finish straightening and partial foiling clients' hair, they send the clients along to the salon's other specialists, who darken and lengthen lash lines with synthetic, semi-permanent eyelash extensions and wax away hair along the lip and inside the chin's backup supply tanks.
