At Chloe Hair Colour & Design, an Aveda salon, the staff kicks off every visit with a thorough consultation that charts the proper path toward personalized hair fashion. They whisk guests past a massive selection of Aveda products toward black leather salon chairs or black leather loungers, the latter of which nestle up next to a color bar. After haircuts, full colors, or partial highlights?just a snapshot of their service menu?the stylists teach a bit of homecare education, so that clients know it?s okay to put their hairstyles near mousse but not a mouse.

Sunshak Tanning Spa adjusts skin tints with custom spray tans and four different types of darkening beam beds. Today's deal covers use of both the gold bed—a 20-minute machine that provides UVA and UVB rays—and the stronger platinum bed, which calls for a shorter laying time so glow getters can make their gerbils' ballet recitals. To achieve darker-looking skin without darker-looking glasses, patrons can opt instead for a custom spray tan done by hand by one of Sunshak's professional hide huers. Spray tans typically take 20–25 minutes to apply, and the salon employs both male and female painters.
