The Smart Tan–certified team at Tan de Soleil assists clients in getting the best out of their experiences by keeping immaculate tanning studios stocked with modern tanning beds and spray-tan booths. Before customers slip into a KBL lay-down bed or a Sun Capsule VHR stand-up unit, the staff provides them with sanitized protective eyewear and towels. They also change the bulbs in those beds regularly to keep them at optimal tanning efficiency.
For UV-free tans, the crew educates its guests about the use of VersaSpa and Mystic Tan spray-tanning booths for custom tans with solutions that moisturize and nourish skin. These tanning booths can gild tanners in about 60 seconds, but for those who wish to take their time, the studios come equipped with a vanity area. In there, guests lounge and use supplied nail files, hairspray, gel, and beauty products to get ready for the rest of their days. The space also allows for phone conversations so customers don’t have to feel intrusive when making personal calls or leaving in-your-face messages on King Midas’s voicemail.
High ceilings, exposed pipework, and a pressed-tin ceiling lend Anim Hair & Beauty Studio an industrial feel, and colourful drapery and modern art warm up its stark beige walls. Specializing in extensions, weaves, braids, and relaxing treatments, the studio’s well-trained stylists sculpt hairdos that attract the admiration of passers-by and hair-scaling princes alike. Each staff member completes an in-house apprenticeship and extensive four-week training course before unleashing his or her pampering prowess via salon services, spa treatments, and hair-removal sessions.
Photos of beach scenes and bright flower arrangements greet clients as they walk into The Tanning Studio’s waiting area, creating a tropical vibe that gets guests eager for their own sun-kissed adventures. Beyond the lobby, three tiers of UV beds await to help bodies acquire a new swimsuit-ready shade, keeping them comfortable with air conditioning, cooling ventilation systems, or a 22 mph fan that mimics the sweat-preventing effects of an ocean breeze or a ride on the back of Evel Knievel's tricycle. Automated Mystic Tan spray-tanning booths cater to sensitive skins, providing a custom hue that safely adheres in 60 seconds; the salon’s lineup of tanning accelerators helps clients boost their bronze factor in less time while keeping skin moisturized to prevent peeling and over-exfoliation.
Backed by 13 years of experience, Not Just Nails’ technician tends to fingers and toes with flair and finesse.

Sealants, tonics, and fills are also available to maintain lash extensions.
Sandy's Esthetics and Day Spa meticulously grooms the body’s exterior through nailcare, waxing, and skincare, and their menu of hot-stone and relaxing massages gently tends to interior aches. Soft music drifts throughout the day spa while clients unwind during treatments or peruse products to use on their life-size dolls at home.
