Guests who come inside any of Malibu Tan?s many locations are greeted with a handshake. Though that might seem like an old-school approach to customer service, Malibu Tan?s owner encourages it as a genuine way for his staff to connect with each client and provide them with customized services. For more than 15 years, Malibu?s friendly staffers have also connected with higher-profile clients?including the Houston Dymano Girls team?by helping them choose the best of each facility?s tanning options for their skin types. With UV tanning, regardless of whether a client prefers a supine or standup system, they are bound to get a strong tan, as all UV bulbs are changed 200 hours before they hit capacity or finally crack open and release a butterfly. There are also plenty of UV-free options such as VersaSpa sunless tanning, which darkens exteriors with a hydrating DHA-based solution. Each location also offers tan-enhancing products from Designer Skin and California Tan.

The nail care, though, is nothing to sniff at, with a certified Master Pedicurist on hand to assist clients living with diabetic foot conditions, and complimentary client boxes store implements in a medical-grade autoclave until their next visit.
Originally an interior designer and color coordinator, Nisha realized she was meant to design hair when her cousin's makeup artist fell ill the day of her wedding and Nisha stepped in to save the day. She already had the fundamentals??her interior design experience taught her to listen to the client, visualize the whole picture, and customize. It's now 20 years since that wedding and Nisha's still at it at Nisha's Salon. She's hand picked a team of aestheticians and stylists, and together they design and color hair in a way that embellishes each client's individual features such as the shape of their face and the color of their eyes. They also offer facials, waxing, and makeup.
