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.
Velvet Waxing Studio's team of expert aestheticians de-fuzz ladies and gentlemen with a slew of services that employ high quality soft and hard waxes. A Velvet Rio treatment sculpts netherfuzz into seductive shapes, expunging more hair than a standard bikini wax by edging follicular forests an inch in from the panty line and down from the top. Alternatively, an eyebrow wax finalizes a hairy brow separation in which both parties split custody of the glabella. 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.
