The staff members at European Image take a three-pronged approach to perfecting skin. First, they match clients with the right skincare regimen to use at home, using products rich in nutrients, vitamins, and fruit enzymes. Then, they consider what professional treatments would benefit skin, choosing from the spa’s robust array of services such as hot-towel facials, eye-brightening treatments, peels, and rejuvenating hand treatments. When skin finally looks as smooth and balanced as a beach ball resting on a seal’s nose, the staff can prescribe a monthly course of treatments to maintain the results. The aestheticians at European Image can also enhance clients’ appearances with waxing, makeup applications, eyelash extensions, and eyelash tabbing, a pared-down version of eyelash extensions that are peppered throughout the client's natural lash line to make it appear lusher and fuller for four days.
The staff at Darque Tan learned the science of tanning through Smart Tan certification, which they rely on to design efficient, safe regimes for each client's skin type. Five levels of PCTan beds and booths can bronze skin with as few as 12 minutes of UV exposure while enveloping skin in cooling mist. Automated airbrush tanning in VersaSpa or Mystic Tan booths create even, natural-looking color that masks scars and stretch marks. Darque Tan's pursuit of convenience is further exemplified with business hours that span seven days a week, a minimum of 20 beds per location, and rec rooms where kids can read and watch TV. A crew of professional cleaners details each of the facilities according to a rigorous 50-point inspection and tips gleaned from reading Mr. Clean's LiveJournal.
Perfect Tan's airbrush artists swathe skin in custom-blended tanning formulas that enhance beauty and self-confidence without UV exposure. The salon’s technicians show a remarkable concern for detail during spray-tan applications, evenly covering the skin with a DHA-based solution derived from sugar beets. Each appointment consists of a brief consultation, five minutes of spraying, and a warm blast of blow-dryer air. Natural-looking hues, such as cocoa, almond, and deep-fried chocolate, swirl together to create a custom color that radiates from skin for several days. Body butters, sugar scrubs, and moisturizers from brands such as Rain and Jamaica Me Tan line the shelves of the studio's boutique; these and other products can help patrons maintain a healthy, hydrated glow.

Tashi Brow & Skin Studio's seasoned aesthetician unearths natural beauty by waxing, threading, and plucking eyebrows into shape. In an initial consultation, Seung Szczechowski pencils in proposed arches designed to complement face outlines and kicks off a 30-minute overhaul of forehead fringe. Seung shares brow-design tips as she snares wayward hairs in thread or wax and then tidies up symmetrical brows with tweezers to leave façades sleek and balanced. A lip waxing grants mouths aerodynamic appeal or the quick-talking capacity of a cheetah auctioneer. Patrons with an eye on upkeep can make a return appearance at the pristine studio for a 15-minute touchup to ocular awnings.
