You might think that standing up while you tan would cause an unnaturally darkened scalp, but this never happens at Hollywood Tans. That's because their arsenal of signature stand-up tanning booths create an always even, natural-looking glow in as little as eight minutes. With more than 140 locations nationwide, the chain’s salons—each a veritable bronze mine for pale bodies—can also bronze physiques Mystic Tan’s Instant Tan, a sunless formula that does not contain dangerous UV-rays or infectious California boy-band harmonies. The tone-savvy staff can also help customers choose the Instant Tan formula best suited to them, matching the bronzing serums to the each person's skin tone, type, and ideal look.
Hollywood Tans' proprietary booths and technologies produce consistent skin tones without the hassle of baking in the sun. The studio boasts roughly 15 upright, sanitary booths that allow customers to do jumping jacks as they build bronze in 8–11 minutes. For those who prefer to shade sans rays, Mystic spray vestibules banish pallor by misting pelts in aloe-rich custom shades that last up to seven days, and a proprietary line of tanning lotions helps maintain and maximize color between visits.
The team at Clique Salon & Spa sees no reason to visit a spa only to stress over which services to try. That's why a spa coordinator is always on hand to help guests navigate the spa menu's cornucopia of aromatic massages, oatmeal pedicures, and Aveda facials. After discussing the client's skin type and any other considerations, the coordinator will be able to suggest just the treatment or spa package for unwinding.
Elsewhere inside Clique's vibrant, yellow and orange salon space, stylists await with shears, color, special conditioners, and those big capes they use to make clients feel like superheroes. In addition to cuts and special-occasion updos, the hair artists are adept with weave extensions, cornrows, twists, and locks.
Janice Malloy, R.N., L.M.T., is more than a massage therapist?she's a muscle therapist. Janice's main concern is muscle and soft-tissue pain management and catering her services to each client's specific needs. Pfrimmer is a unique, cross-fiber massage technique that allows the therapist to reach deeper tissue layers without causing pain in a therapeutic and relaxing session. Janice's soft-tissue release technique reorganizes scar tissue, while her orthopedic technique restores structural balance to the body by re-educating muscles and improving flexibility. Additional services performed include myofascial release, a method that releases stuck fascia from underlying muscles and pain neutralization, a technique that removes trigger points in as few as 20-seconds.
Majestic Sun Salon's stand-up and lay-down beds have modern features such as cooling fans and elevated platforms to help legs tan faster. Those who prefer sunless methods can opt for Mystic Tan spray booths, custom airbrush tanning, or wishing for a tan, but only two of these methods will bronze skin for up to seven days. Other beautifying treatments include red-light therapy, which boosts collagen restoration and can diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and scars. Infrared body wraps detoxify the body, burning up to 1,400 calories an hour while also softening fat tissue and encouraging its expulsion from the body.
The Make Up Parlour's name doesn't tell the whole story, as its staff members beautify more than just faces. Of course, they expertly apply full faces of makeup, eyelash extensions, and boosts to brow color. But they also offer hair services for men and women, including trendy cuts, bold color and highlights, and numerous styles for natural and relaxed locks. They round out their services with skin-brightening facials, waxing sessions, and manicures in vivid colors. For clients who want to combine The Make Up Parlour's beautifying treatments, the salon offers wedding, makeup, and party packages.
