Razzor Sharp Styles combines the experience of an Old World barbershop with an upscale salon. The bilingual barbers offer dapper men's haircuts along with services designed to simultaneously groom and relax their clients. These services include lathers and shaves, soothing hot-towel treatments, and massages for the face and upper body, which leave men feeling loose and looking sharp. In addition to men's services, they also cater to women by offering color and deep-conditioning treatments and special-occasion updos.
Back in 1999, brothers David and Rick Kueber noticed a lag in business at their chain of video-rental shops during the summer months, when no one wanted to be cooped up inside watching movies. The two put their heads together and found a rather unconventional solution to their problem: tanning beds. They installed a new fleet of skin-bronzing machines and sat back as so many clients flocked to their shop that the brothers were forced to open an entire store just to cater to their clients’ tanning demands. This was the birth of Sun Tan City. Today, what started as an experimental side business boasts more than 200 locations across 16 states.
The staff at each location maintains a meticulously clean space, where they show clients to UV beds dubbed fast, faster, fastest, and instant. The beds include features such as facial tanners and self-contained air conditioners. Alternatively, clients can opt for the UV-free, automated VersaSpa system, which swathes physiques in a DHA, plant-based bronzing solution. The liquid reacts naturally with skin’s amino acids, creating an even coat as radiant as the high beams on Helios’s chariot within 46 seconds.

The newest techniques and trends bloom students' repertoires in cosmetology, aesthetics, or nail technology during small classes that foster student and teacher interaction and one-on-one time. While honing their crafts during instructor-supervised sessions with paying customers, enrollees get a leg up on business acumen in lessons that cover scheduling, manning a front desk, and delegating photocopying tasks to the most responsible photocopier. After completing the program, students may follow in the footsteps of past graduates that have gone on to decorate famous faces as movie stylists, or become salon owners, cosmetology educators, and beauty-magazine editors.
