She streaks hair with highlights, or even shades of pink, purple, and blue to help her clients' true colors shine through. Despite her salon's spacious area, she keeps private rooms in which to conduct each treatment. She goes out of her way to make each visitor as comfortable as possible in their borrowed personal space. She wants them to come back. "A repeat client is always the best compliment we can get," she says.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Located inside Suite Escape Salons of Forney, Tanzibar Tan’s three certified technicians help patrons wrap themselves in a summery hue with custom applications of Norvell tanning spray. Each 30-minute session is tailored to clients’ shape and skin tone, thoroughly coating bodies to eradicate tan lines caused by T-shirts or naps under a hammock. The salon’s manicurist can quickly groom fingers and toes, ensuring patrons are fully groomed for the 5–7 days it takes for their tan to fade.
