The brilliant bronzers at Ultimate Sun assist customers in achieving their color goals with a variety of tanning techniques. Choose two UV-free Mystic Tans, which cast a healthy, even glow without the added weight of burdensome halos. Indoor sun-kissers can also multiply melatonin levels with a duo of the salon's highest intensity S-Class tanning sessions, which provide a month's worth of color in two to three visits, or ramp up vitamin D production with one month of level two tan-a-thons in a Catalina bed. Tête-à-têtes with the bed last 12 minutes at most and include three high-pressure facial bulbs to ensure that mugs match their lower body counterparts. Ultimate Sun greets its patrons with a refreshingly upscale ambiance bedecked with exposed brick walls and 21 private tanning rooms, each equipped with state-of-the-art color-casting chambers. Like a Roman sculptor who gets paid per statue, Ultimate Sun bronzes bodies seven days a week.

Hair Feather Styles’ festive and fashionable extensions vary in length up to 8 inches, and appear in a wide selection of designs, from natural hair colors and textures to a colorful spectrum of eye-catching complexions. A professional stylist consults with each client to discuss placement and proper care before a brief 10-minute application (per feather), applying feathers with silicone-lined microlinks designed to not cut or damage follicles, unlike attaching extensions through aluminum crimps or iron welding. Once safely adhered to the hair, extensions may be safely removed in seconds, or can stay in place for months, enduring washing, curling, straightening, coloring, or hosting a hair-gel slip ’n slide.
Great Clips harnesses the vast resources of a national salon chain to provide personalized, professional styling services to follicle frolickers. Highly trained hair tamers tame wild wigs and also serve as style guides through the often-intimidating tonsorial jungle, answering clients' questions about hair trends and maintenance. The stylish snipping ($13) gets started after a warm shampoo and rinse ($5) cleans scalps and washes away the melodies of musical comedies stuck in hair. Walk-ins are welcome.
