Lash Out certified lash extensionist Courtney Vogel volumizes clients' natural eyelashes one lash at a time. She eschews fake lash strips; she prefers to use the Lavish Lashes system, which builds upon existing lashes instead of covering them up. Clients relax in a comfortable chair with their eyes closed while Courtney applies soft, natural-looking lashes one by one to the client's real lashes. Although this detailed service takes time and concentration, it adds length and volume without the need for globing on clumpy paste or gluing on doll-size feather dusters.
People don’t go to a deli to fight wrinkles, fine lines, and acne outbreaks. But at Youthful Trends, skincare apothecaries mix custom, natural, handmade body butters and beauty products behind a beauty deli. It's this smorgasbord of organic serums and creams that lays claim to the Earthworm Wrinkle Butter, which was praised on The Doctors for its anti-aging blend of green-tea extracts and secrets for fighting off early birds. In addition to tailored blends of fresh fruit and botanicals, aestheticians encourage glowing complexions with LED light, bronze bodies in beds equipped with personal sound systems, and lift moods with vitamin D-enriched lights.
When it comes to reinventing someone's look, the team at Evo Salon & Spa know that it's best to start at the top and work your way down. Armed with products and training from DevaCurl, stylists tame tresses no matter their texture, shearing and styling straight locks or adding pintura highlights to springy curls. They also encourage clients to experiment with more than one look, stocking a full range of Daisy Fuentes wigs within the salon's private showroom. Elsewhere in the spa, nail technicians pamper hands and feet with a range of mani-pedis, and waxing specialists remove mustaches and cleave unibrows in twain.
The potent rays of UV lamps soak skin in a bronzing glow as melodies find their way into ears thanks to the MP3 hookups in Legally Bronzed Tanning’s fleet of advanced horizontal and vertical tanning beds. Guests who wish to avoid UV light entirely can opt for custom airbrush tans, which imbue skin with a summery, streak-free glow without the potential risks of bathing in sun rays or a commercial deep fryer. The same airbrush artists who cover bodies in custom tans can also enhance beauty with makeup.
The epidermal experts at Sun of A Beach Tanning cover bodies in sun-kissed shades with a wide range of sunless systems, beds, and tanning products, proving there are easier ways to get a tan than replacing your bed with a pile of flashlights or letting the sun bear-hug you. Develop a head turning-tint in the Sun Capsule Eclipse stand-up bed, its seven-minute treatment time rendering it ideal for quick touchups during lunch breaks or right before parties demanding you to dress as your favorite bronze currency. For a UV-free tan, Sun of a Beach's expert certified airbrush technicians coat hides in Norvell sunless products. The studio then helps clients maintain their golden hues with an airbrush kit, which includes pre-tan body scrub and a cleansing body wash alongside a color-extending moisturizer to ensure that your tan doesn't fade prematurely. Airbrush sessions require reservations, so call ahead for an appointment.
Caramel wood tones swirl throughout Body & Sol Tanning's studio, modeling the hues customers adopt during UV bed sessions and UV-free airbrush appointments. With three levels of solar-simulation chambers, tanners spend between 2–15 minutes absorbing healthy amounts of light from fresh bulbs. Specialized facial lamps ensure that features receive an even coat, and lotions by Synergy Tan and JWoww help to stimulate bronzing while basting bodies with additional moisture. Body & Sol Tanning also offers professional airbrushing appointments, during which a trained professional applies an even mist to eliminate pale complexions and regrets of napping outside underneath a hammock.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
