As a Smart Tan–certified salon, Aloha Tans has been adding a golden hue to clients for more than 15 years. The salon banishes pallor with both lie-down beds and booths that let clients stand upright while acquiring a summery glow. It also stays open until as late as 11 p.m., allowing customers to obtain a new look just in time for an important business meeting with a video-chatting client in Asia. Whatever the time of day, knowledgeable staff members remain ready to answer questions about salon’s many retail tanning products.
Satin Laser Spa's technicians harness the power of light to remove almost any type of beauty-inhibiting blemish, from uninvited hair to wanted tattoos. They can help patients bid adieu to fine lines and age spots as they are escorted away during IPL photofacials or combat acne with a combination of green light, red light, and heat, and laser teeth-whitening treatments erase discoloration and graffiti left behind by vengeful spinach. Laser liposuction tightens stubborn areas and kick-starts collagen production with infrared light and radio frequencies, instigating a surge of cellular activity that helps tighten sagging skin and smooth out creases caused by cellulite deposits and powernaps on computer keyboards.
The Mount Pearl location of Coco Beach Tanning Studio treats its visitors to the latest in shade-shifting technology, including customizable spray-tanning formulas from Sjolie that instantly create natural-looking tans without exposing skin to UV rays. Sjolie products are made from natural ingredients, are DHA organic, and are certified vegan. The studio also stocks six more-traditional tanning machines, including four lie-down, 360-degree beds with total-body cooling as well as two SolarForce stand-up booths equipped with 52 two-metre body lamps and their own butlers. A T-Zone vibration-fitness machine is also on hand to help clients tone their muscles.
The studio also helps customers retain their glow between bakes by stocking shelves with products from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty, as well as accessories such as jewellery and sunglasses. Coco Beach also keeps nail technicians on staff, who daub fingertips with traditional and no-chip polishes.
Amy Goodyear worked at highbrow spas for most of her 10 years in aesthetics, but she was never quite satisfied with the customer service she observed around her. Knowing she could do better, Goodyear founded Down ’Ome Day Spa in an exceptionally hospitable location—her own home. Within her abode, she performs Gelish mani-pedis, facials, and massages from a professional-quality treatment room with candlelight and a comfy massage table. Goodyear also travels on-location to design bridal makeup, offer spa parties, and spread sunscreen across local statues’ noses.

Core Fitness & Spa tones and tightens patrons with a full slate of core-centric classes in the fields of Pilates, yoga, and TRX suspension training. In Pilates classes, a friendly, trained instructor leads students through conditioning exercises designed to strengthen and stabilize their body's centres while building long, lean muscles, releasing pent-up tension, and establishing proper muscle use. Hatha flow yoga, meanwhile, combines poses, breath control, and relaxation as a means of bringing bodies, minds, and the scales of justice into balance. First inspired by U.S. Navy SEALs conditioning, TRX suspension training uses a versatile set of straps dangling from the ceiling to perform hundreds of leveraged body-weight exercises, which sculpt sinews simply and effectively. Core Fitness & Spa offers morning and evening classes as well as a once-every-17-years option for cicadas. Consult the schedule for times and dates.
