Comfy leather couches, oversized wood-framed mirrors, and a sprawling open floor plan coalesce to forge an elegant but laidback atmosphere inside Paloosh Salon. Here, clients can plop into the wide-backed swivel seats at hairstyling stations or sink into cushy pedicure chairs as they watch their coiffures morph from bland to dazzling or their nails take on new hues to match the pet goldfish they carry with them everywhere. A team of six artists offers a variety of services, harnessing their individual backgrounds and continuing education to meticulously color strands, effectively defuzz legs, and expertly apply makeup for special occasions.
At Oasis Tanning Salon, visitors deepen their complexions with both UV tanning and sunless spray tans. Before entering either lie-down or standup beds, patrons glaze their pelts with lotions from California Tan and Swedish Beauty that maximize the effect of the UV bulbs' emissions. Tanners can purchase UV tans a la carte or by the month, or they can invest in VIP memberships that reward them with deeply discounted rates for six-month, one-year, or 15-generation contracts. During five-minute airbrush-tanning sessions held in private rooms, certified technicians mist guests with a personalized hue harvested entirely from natural ingredients. Customers trapped in padlocked pants can elect to be airbrushed from the waist up or just on the face and neck, and tanners can augment their freshly misted bods with a cocktail tan, which supplements spray sessions with up to five minutes in a standup UV bed.
Ohm Skin Care ushers relaxation seekers of both sexes into a soothing spa environment.

The spa's facials, peels, and LED therapies unveil the radiant sides of clients' kissers, and package appointments pamper bridal showers and sorority parties before weddings or high-stakes jewel heists. Free consultations, arranged with a preappointment phone call or telegram, ease any lingering concerns or questions.
Dr. Patricia Campbell comes from a background of family practice, but it was her interest in beauty that led her to open Springhall Aesthetics in 2011. As medical director, she oversees a menu of minimally invasive body-contouring and skin-renewal services that help clients to fight the signs of aging. Chemical peels, injectable fillers, and laser treatments shoo away wrinkles, and iS Clinical cosmeceutical products leave complexions more subtly radiant than a jar of comets. The clinic's UltraPlus laser hair-removal system not only blasts away unwanted follicles but also assaults spider veins and other colored epidermal imperfections. Upon entering Springhall Aesthetics' charming brick façade, guests stumble into a cozy waiting room anchored by polished hardwood floors. Clients can curl up in one of the lobby's cushy chairs or feed a bag of goldfish to one of the egrets in the serene wall art.

After extensive experimentation with various product combinations, the skin scholars at Charleston Spray Tan crafted a formula for an organic, nontoxic dye that imbues patrons with natural, long-lasting color. The spray contains a delicious low-calorie blend of vegetarian ingredients, antioxidants, infused multivitamins, and hyaluronic acids. In each of their three 20–30-minute sessions, customers are evenly coated in a DHA dye for streak-free, nonsticky results, masking cellulite, varicose veins, and skin discolorations. Epidermal artists tailor each tan according to customer's personal color aspirations, be it brown, light tan, or paisley.
