Owner and licensed aesthetician Luciana Mueller trained in Brazil and uses natural waxes imported from Brazil to gently extricate unwelcome tendrils and smoothen sensitive areas for up to five weeks. Lip waxing ($15) encourages silken smooches, and eyebrow shaping ($15) enables newly beautified faces to express the gamut of human emotion—from happiness to unbridled happiness—in utmost style. Defuzz underams ($20) and lower arms ($35) or prep for the beach with a Brazilian bikini wax ($65). Waxing provides longer-lasting hairlessness than shaving, and when the hair does come back after a few weeks, it's meek, soft, and easily scared back into the follicle with banging pans or the threat of another round of wax.
Glow Salon has everything it takes to make a body beach-ready. Staffers perform body-wide waxing services and partner clients up with the tanning equipment that will provide them with the bronzed look they desire. To enhance the effects of a UV- or airbrush-tanning session, they also stock a slew of tanning products.
Named Best Tanning Salon by Good Times Santa Cruz, Tanners Cove bronzes bodies with an array of UV and sunless techniques. Gild your dermal surface to a treasury finish with a month of unlimited low-pressure brownings in one of Tanners Cove's advanced beds, which emit controlled mixtures of UVB and UVA light designed to minimize burning. Or, submit your body canvas to a level-two airbrushing in which a certified spray-tan technician will delicately apply sunshine paint to your exterior, leaving a glow, an even hue, or an abstract rendering of the Eiffel Tower upon request.
To give bodies a golden glow, the certified technicians at deSoleil Spray Tanning employ Infinity Sun technology, which has shaded the skin of celebrities such as Britney Spears and Paula Abdul. The bronzing experts grasp precision spray guns that atomize the all-natural solution into a fine mist for even coverage and let them customize each tan to blend seamlessly with the specific sand castle in which the client is currently living. The solution, enriched with antioxidants and hydrating botanicals, yields a coppery luminescence that can last up to two weeks and fades uniformly rather than leaving streaks. DeSoleil Spray Tanning augments bronzing with pre- and post-tanning skin treatments that incorporate aloes and emollients to moisturize thirsty dermises, ensuring that skin maintains its soft feel and dewy appearance.
Nestled between serene coastlines and redwood forests, Tradewinds Tanning & Day Spa houses a team of aestheticians and massage therapists that enthusiastically welcomes customers to relax and partake in various treatments.

Tanning beds in five different varieties are also available, and infrared body wraps aim to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
