At Sunshine Studio, radiance comes from within. The teachers at Sunshine Studio embrace yoga as a holistic health treatment, combining it with other forms of exercise—such as Pilates—known to strengthen the body while alleviating or preventing injury. Outside of the classroom, massage therapists sooth muscles with seven distinct modalities, including therapeutic massage, acupressure, and hot-stone massage.
The studio's spa technicians also coax out each client's inner light with rejuvenating skin care and body treatments. Customized to meet the needs of all skin types, their revitalizing facial restores lost youth with a full package of hydration, cleansing, and exfoliation. Technicians also rid clients of negative energy, removing pent-up toxins with ear candling and ionic foot baths and restoring respiratory clarity with aromatherapy-based raindrop therapy.
For more than a decade, the technicians at Spray of Sunshine have been safely darkening skin using FDA-approved airbrush-tanning techniques. During 30-minute airbrush-tanning sessions, techs spray micromists of DHA bronzer, which bonds to skin to produce the appearance of a natural, even tan without the labors of lounging on a beach chair strapped to a sun-bound rocket. Tans typically last up to 10 days, depending on upkeep and maintenance practices.
The efficient tanning team can also perform mobile services at the home or office. The technicians arrive with all necessary equipment, carefully coating bodies in bathrooms or garages to avoid giving tans to already-entitled housecats.
The airbrush artists, stylists, and nail and wax technicians at Ungaro's Le'Spa know that there's no point carrying out aesthetic services if you don't have the right products. To that end, they both use the spa's own line of signature solutions and call upon brands such as Aveda, Bioelements, Rusk, and OPI. Their UV-free tanning spray is applied via an airbrush delivery system, lending a sun-kissed look without risking exposure to harmful rays. On the other side of this full-service salon and spa, stylists add shine and luster to new 'dos with coloring, highlighting, smoothing treatments.

The staff at Erica Davis Salon & Spa expertly beautifies clients as hanging lamps glow and a portrait of Audrey Hepburn keeps watch from an eggplant-purple wall. Trained stylists execute a full range of salon services, including haircuts that commence at the black-basined wash station or foil highlights that start by unwrapping a bag of Hershey's kisses. Airbrushes tint skin with spray-on foundation or UV-free tanning mist, and temporary and semipermanent eyelash extensions endow lids with extra flutterability.
24 Hour Tan offers its members round-the-clock access to UV-tanning beds, red-light phototherapy, expertly applied airbrush spray tans, and an expansive stock of brand-name tanning products. The bronzing boutique’s members are granted access at all hours by scanning their fingerprints, ensuring tans are in place to impress nocturnal hamsters in the moonlit hours. Nonmembers are welcome during regular hours.
Marc Alan Day Spa's cadre of hair-shaping wizards crafts dazzling coiffures using professional product lines such as Rusk and Redken, and is guided by customized consultations. After stylist and stylee confer on the desired look, hair sculptors go to work creating anything from sporty bobs for on-the-go athletes to lavish updos for time travelers who favor ancient regimes. Full highlights enliven monochromatic strands with contrasting color, garnishing new hairstyles with eye-catching pigment. Those with longer or thicker hair can add extra foils for $5 each. A blow-dry finishes off sessions, readying damp manes for reentry into worlds filled with style-spoiling wind and hair-mussing grandmas.
