At Beau Soleil, patrons choose from four levels of tanning beds in which they can soak in UV rays. These beds coax skin to blossom with sun-kissed color so clients don't have to spend time outside or take naps on the windowsill. Norvell organic solutions power airbrush-tanning sessions, which mist skin with darker shades of bronze.
The seasoned stylists at The Loft approach each haircare service with a practiced understanding of technique and aesthetics. Led by owner Lynn Vermont, the team boasts members with decades of experience at both delivering trendy treatments and even owning salons of their own. Whether they're snipping hair into a summer-ready 'do, imbuing locks with an updated hue through full or foil coloring, or gracing fingertips with a sturdy set of acrylic nails, team members leave their clients significantly more fashionable than they were when they arrived. They also specialize in wedding parties, prepping brides, maids of honor, and reception food-tasters for the special day with breathtaking updos and designs.
Formerly the St. Louis Tan Company, The Tan Company opted for a more general name after it expanded from its first salons in Missouri. While he established locations in other states, owner Todd Beckman stuck to the business model that had attracted his initial surge of customers: several different tanning levels in one clean, welcoming space. Today, Tan Company locations feature beds, booths, and products from multiple leading brands, including MysticTan and Australian Gold.
To save beach lovers from harmful UVA and UVB rays, April Clark uses specially formulated sprays that react naturally with skin to produce dark, even tans in 15 minutes. Working inside a private room at Moda Salon, April swathes physiques in the DHA-based solution, which, in one session, can mimic the effects of five visits to a tanning bed or eight days spent soaking in a tub of sun tea.
