Dorina spent more than a decade honing her skills as an aesthetician before establishing Skincare by Dorina. That's why she's so adept at whipping up concoctions designed to offset specific issues, from wrinkles to acne to rosacea.

The Perkins sisters run Faking it Flawless with a glowing mission of coating men and women in safe outer glows, earning the sunless spot a nod as the Ultimate Airbrush Tanning Salon from élite magazine. In 20 minutes, tanners tint to a healthy bronze radiance lasting 7–14 days that never appears orange nor is able to rhyme with anything else. The streak-free and anti-aging Infinity Sun solution also helps maintain newly tinted skin against the ravages of time.
Sunset Tan helps clients maintain a year-round glow by giving them access to a range of UV beds by UWE as well as sunless spray options by Infinity Sun and Mystic Tan. The salon keeps its doors open late, allowing clients to steep in the UV rays at hours that suit their work schedule or sneak in well after the sun has gone to bed.
The skin specialists at Smart Xposure want clients to get tan, but they don’t want them burn. In their experience, many clients think looking pink after tanning confirms they got color. The staff warns that those burns, no matter how light, lead to skin problems later in life. So, Smart Xposure opts for safer tanning methods, handpicking bulbs from Thomas Edison’s private collection for UV beds that are up to 99.7% UVB-free and designed to keep clients at a pace of only two to three tans per month. Mystic and organic custom airbrush tans eliminate UV exposure entirely, evenly coating bodies with natural-looking color.
Smart Xposure infuses its client-conscious practices with a dose of fun, enlivening the lobby with a plasma-screen television. Upbeat music spills into each room through a DMX sound system, and modern decor evokes the feel of a nightclub without the unpleasant ordeal of having to sweet-talk a bouncer into letting you into the bathroom.
Founded by entrepreneur Monica Blanco, Colour Couture revivifies clients with airbrush tans powered by proprietary tanning solutions.

The technicians who apply them all undergo a thorough training program and the Colour Couture certification they receive prepares them to apply even coats out in the field, whether they are bronzing an entire bridal party or just one friendly ghost looking to fit in with the land of the living.
