Breezy Bugs' amiable gilding staff employs a variety of body-burnishing techniques to imbue sallow bone sacks with lively color. Hop into a tanning bed for a UV blast that provides all the bronzing effects of a day at the beach without the hassle of wrapping water-sensitive skin in plastic. While hue hunters seeking a simple tan can gain a month's worth of access to the standard 15-minute beds, those looking for a bear hug of an ultraviolet embrace can opt for a month of 12-minute superlevel sessions.
A phoenix that rose from the ashes of two former spas, Breeze Day Spa and Airbrush Tanning unites these aestheticians in a new home where they continue to pamper clients with a full array of spa services. The experts renew visages with microdermabrasion treatments, gussy up nails with bright coats of polish, and employ airbrush tanning to help clients acquire a golden hue before heading to the beach to challenge crabs to a crab-walking race.
With elegant décor and a warm color scheme to back them up, Bloom’s spa specialists excel at comforting hands and feet. Kick back in a plush throne while the trained talon tamers pamper glove- and stocking-stuffers with a spa manicure (a $20 value) and pedicure (a $40 value). The hand-focused half of the mani-pedi nurtures less-than-divine upper digits back to prime dog-petting condition, and the pedicure gussies up lower paws with skin-soothing care as each member of the 10-pronged posse is trimmed, buffed, and shined to stageworthy glory. Palms and soles are softened after hostile calluses and cuticles are exiled from the premises, leaving behind a lush landscape at the ends of grateful limbs.
Those looking for custom color perfectly suited to their skin tone will feel right at home within Sun Gallery, which won Jackson Free Press' "Best Tanning Salon of Jackson" in 2010, 2011, and 2012. At either of their impeccably clean studios, friendly tanning experts help clients attain their best-ever bronze thanks to a unique rotational method that guides them through three levels of beds with differing intensities. When used in a specific rotational pattern, the method helps build a longer-lasting, natural-looking glow that builds gradually, creating an even suntan, avoiding burns, and increasing the natural production of Vitamin D.
Airbrush services lend ephemeral shading for special events or the UV-shy. Unlike some studios where the spray tans are performed by machines, Sun Gallery's are performed by real airbrush experts who spray it on by hand, ensuring a glow that is streak-less and customized to each customer's contours in only 30 minutes.
The aestheticians at Esthetiques Skin Spa have all long held an interest in skincare, even dating back to childhood for one pro who gave herself mud-pie facials. While mud is conveniently left off the menu, the team does unfurl Intraceuticals products, glycolic-acid peels, and a Nuface microcurrent toning device to revitalize tired mugs and combat acne, sun spots, and fine lines. They also adorn fresh canvases with permanent eyeliner and brows that stay put during showers, workouts, and naps in a sauna.
