The eponymous owner of Clarisa’s Golden Touch specializes in gilding body builders. She wields a professional spray-tanning wand during each treatment, carefully misting the skin to accentuate each patron’s body and skin tone. Whether patrons want full or partial color, Clarisa creates a comfortable environment with in-studio and on-the-go services. She provides thorough instructions for achieving competition color, suggesting that patrons depilate and exfoliate their entire body in advance of the application. By following these steps and also declining double-dog dares to streak through the car wash, patrons achieve tans that last up to ten days.
TanTastic Tans' clean tanning beds and sunless tanning spray lend pigment a healthy, natural-looking shade. Relax, nap, or ponder the impermanence of popsicles in any of the three high-intensity tanning beds to develop an allover epidermal enrichment over the course of five sessions. Tanners can recline in a lie-down divan for 10–12 minutes, dive into the 20-minute bed equipped with facial tanners, or stroll into the 10- to 12-minute standup bed. Those wishing for a UV-free alternative can opt for a spray-tan session, which lends skin a rich glow devoid of orange undertones, foul odors, or scurrilous graffiti tags.
Spray-tanning imbues sunny glow without exposing skin to Sol's harmful UV rays or the beach's abundance of maniacs brandishing metal detectors. During your session, one of Endless Summer's trained technicians will hand-apply sprayable sunshine to your pallid profile with an airbrush, working conscientiously with your existing skin color and body's contours to achieve an even, natural effect that will last 7–14 days. This attention to detail prevents streakiness, a common occurrence with machine-applied color. Endless Summer's tanning formula is carefully balanced, with the active ingredient (DHA) kept at 9% to avoid any orange results. All tanning sessions happen in total privacy with a professional, and customers can dress or undress for the session according to their comfort level. Review this preparation list to ready your corpus for its bronzing session.

Highlights can add dimension to an existing style or double the transformative effect of a new one. Read our guide of the process to prepare for your trip to the salon.
A skilled stylist doesn't need a pair of scissors to transform a hairdo. The precise application of highlights—which isolate select strands of hair and treat them with a color, lightener, or toner—can become the basis for a brand new look without a single snip or shear. Before entering the salon, however, a client has to decide how much of the hair to highlight. Applied evenly throughout the entire head, full highlights create a natural look that mimics the way hair changes color over time in the sun, adding a sense of dimension and texture to the existing hair. Partial highlights, which are typically cheaper and take less time to apply, serve an altogether different purpose: drawing attention to specific features, such as bangs or newly sharpened antlers, by accenting only the locks on the surface. As a result, partial highlights are somewhat less flexible—losing their effect, for example, when putting your hair up or teasing it out.
