Suvara's award-winning airbrush experts gild their guests with a UV-free glow. Each sunless-specialist has completed a rigorous certification program, and will work with their clients to achieve their personal perfect pigmentation. Suvara's exclusive tanning blend contains health-boosting ingredients such as vitamins A and C to improve skin texture and peaceably fight the signs of aging, and hyaluronic acid to lock in notoriously flighty moisture. This hand-sprayed, natural and organic mist coats the body in less than 45 minutes, with customizable tonal results ranging from blissful butterscotch to buccaneer-baiting gold. Your new streak-free hue darkens over the next eight hours, and lasts around one week without special care, or longer with routine moisturizing and daily massages from King Midas.
Zip Zap Salons offer numerous services, but what ties them all together is the staff’s commitment to personal attention. Thus, every treatment—from 24-karat gold facials to deep-tissue massages—is performed with warmth and care. In addition to these services, the salon also offers eyebrow threading, eyelash extensions, and mani-pedis.
The bronzing team at Sharper Image Tanning helps to cultivate sun-kissed skin with custom tans. Those whose flat-screen TVs fail to create quality at-home tans can imbue their epidermises with added glow during the sunless, UV-free session. After friendly staff members escort tan-seekers to private rooms, customers stand and splay arms while a bottled solution evenly coats the body, sweeping from side to side until it reaches the desired level of darkness.
The certified muscle magicians and epidermis invigorators at Gerard's The Spa soothe both skin and senses with a line of all-natural Italian products. Gerard's Signature Facial deploys classic European facial techniques, which delightedly open pores like cash-filled birthday cards. Gentle exfoliation and a facial massage precede the skin-swathing customized mask, and a final element of nourishing moisturizer adds vivification to complexions. A symphony of oils, creams, and lotions make beautiful music throughout the Swedish massage, which uses long, connective strokes and kneading to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. A glass of wine puts the cherry on top of the relaxation sundae.
The savvy team at Epiphany Day Spa dispels stress and unprettiness with a hefty roster of hair services, skincare and bodycare treatments, and spa packages. After slipping into a robe and slippers, clients can lounge in a private room, where a licensed aesthetician buffs away dead skin cells and skin dullness with microdermabrasions and chemical peels. Out on the salon floor, stylists revive lackluster manes with braids, weaves, and coloring services, while intimate massage rooms create a welcoming and warm environment for clients to kick up their feet and de-stress during 60-minute sessions.
The candlelit crevices of the spa further encourage guests to relax, nibble on complimentary cheese and crackers, and sip soothing cups of tea or coffee as they retreat to the waiting lounge to enjoy a moment of peace or attempt to recite the Declaration of Independence in pig Latin. Those in search of a domestic skincare regime can peruse Epiphany’s stock of moisturizers, eye creams, and masks from the Your Name Cosmetics and CosMedical Skin Care lines.
The aestheticians at Beauty Affairs Salon sculpt shapely brows with the use of a simple cotton strand during efficient threading sessions. An alternative to waxing, tweezing, or hiring a nimble-clawed lobster, threading uproots unwanted follicles from men's and women's over-eye canopies with exacting precision in about five to 10 minutes. This effective Middle Eastern depilatory technique produces results that can last up to four weeks, allowing for nearly a month of artful frowns, surprised looks, and raising single brows to convey that a rainstorm is approaching.
