Tommy’s Tanning offers customers more than two dozen bronzing options, from single-session spray tans for special occasions to yearly memberships inside five levels of tanning beds. The vertical and horizontal beds imbue skin with color while cooling faces and playing music for a more comfortable tanning session. For UV-free color, VersaSpa spray-tanning booths coat the skin in a streak-free glow, all while the client stands in a comfortable, wide-open interior.
International Institute of Cosmetology founder Carmelo Gugliotti began his career as a professional hairdresser when he was 16. He gradually built his passion into a successful business, entering international competitions and earning leadership positions within multiple cosmetology groups. Now supported by his beauty-minded family—including his wife and three sons—Gugliotti trains stylists and aestheticians in rigorous, accredited courses.
As part of their training, students offer a full menu of hair, nail, and spa services that incorporates Wella coloring and Dermalogica skincare products. Instructors supervise each treatment to ensure pupils don’t disregard protocol or use their untutored genius to make clients too beautiful for this world.
At Beyond Visual Spa—formerly Beaux Visages—a team of aestheticians and licensed massage therapists helps clients feel beautiful inside and out through an array of relaxing services. The facials, for example, integrate elements such as hot stones and heated mitts to vanquish tension and allow skin to absorb the full nourishing effects. This emphasis on relaxation pervades the spa's therapies, from massage and nailcare to body scrubs and wraps to staring pensively at a blank wall. Beyond Visual's staff also extend their expertise to advising on products for at-home care.
The therapists at this relaxing day spa bring natural healing to both the body and mind. They loosen tightly wound muscles with hot stones, bamboo sticks, and warm candle oil, which simultaneously nourishes skin for a silky soft feel. More than 10 types of facials tend to skin-specific ailments, be they acne or signs of aging, with specialized serums and soothing techniques. And during body wraps, the therapists enlist plant extracts and essential oils to remove excess water from systems—leaving bodies as light as the day they hatched.
Certified aesthetician Agnes Plewa uses Pevonia products during her custom facials, which may cleanse pores, treat rosacea, or reduce blemishes. Her skincare treatments may also include such ingredients as caviar, licorice, and green tea. In addition to offering facials, she provides waxing services, using a hard wax from France to remove unwanted hair from the body.
