Right down the road from the Oklahoma University dorms lies Rock Paper Scissor Hair Studio, a salon where stylists cut, color, and style hair with premium products from brands such as Paul Mitchell. The Paul Mitchell name has influenced the salon's personnel as well as its inventory, since the three-person staff includes a graduate of the brand's school, not to mention a specialist in long hair and updos and a makeup and skincare whiz. Inside the salon itself, clients recline in comfortable leather chairs in front of full-length mirrors.
With locations spanning Oklahoma City, Midwest City, and Norman, Sandy Beaches Tanning helps keep Sooner State bodies looking summer-ready all year round. Beds by brands such as Ovation, Solaris, and Acclaim HP comprise four tiers of conventional bulb tanning, or Mystic Tan airbrush booths rely upon the body's own magnetic properties to attract the customized formula in a way that helps it adhere evenly to every curve, crease, and prime meridian. To help clients keep up their sun-drenched demeanor between visits, Sandy Beaches also stocks each location's shelves with a large selection of tanning lotions, which customers can learn more about thanks to a biweekly lotion review posted on the business's facebook page.
While the sun spends most of its day in the sky, it still finds time to hang out in The Riviera Tanning Spa, teaching five different levels of Ergoline tanning beds how to bronze bodies with color that looks like it came from the star itself. From the Ambition bed’s beginner-friendly 120-watt bulbs to the Excellence 800’s simmering 520-watt heaters, tanners of all levels can boost golden hues in as little as 10 minutes. Thanks to their large facility, Riveria can accommodate a high influx of individuals without requiring appointments. Their Autobronzer system also reduced peaked appearances without UV exposure, spraying skin with three levels of sunless solutions that add color that won’t run, streak, or turn blue when placed under a black light.
At Sunroom Tanning Salon, tonally transforming patrons step into a clean, friendly environment filled with a variety of UV-full and UV-free tanning options. Clients rest easy for up to 12 minutes while bathing in the UV light of a Matrix high-pressure bed, a comfortable machine designed with fast, effective results in mind. The fully automated Mystic Tan booth sprays physiques from head to piggies, coating all exposed surfaces in a specially formulated DHA and aloe-vera serum. The solution reacts naturally with skin to create a healthy, streak-free hue, further customized by the preference of each client. Including drying time, the spray tan process takes three to five minutes, though patrons should plan to avoid showering or volunteering for dunk tanks for a minimum of four hours after their visit.
Offering guidance seven days a week, the robotic-fitness experts at Tan & Tone America lead women through 28-minute workouts on specialized machines that target hard-to-tone areas without compromising joints. During each session, technicians guide patrons through seven pieces of equipment, which are designed to provide 10 times the repetitions of a typical gym workout. Moreover, these sinew-strengthening movements target the trunk area where weight accumulates and earns interest.
Rumor has it that spray-tan tech Jennifer Freer can hit a pale leg from 100 paces. Beyond just accuracy, she's a stickler for customization.

Jennifer offers spray-tan parties for groups of five or more and can provide a customized glow for special occasions such as proms or weddings.
