The staffers at Sunsets Tanning declare that their mission is to make clients “look good naked.” To do this, they put their Smart Tan certification to use to outline a tan plan based on each client’s skin tone and desired shade of bronze. Then they guide clients into private treatment rooms for airbrush tanning or show them how to hop into tanning beds—like a bunny, preferably. Both the rooms and the beds within them are meticulously cleaned by the spa’s staff. They also change each bed’s bulbs after 200 hours of service so that they always shine as brightly and evenly as the fluorescent scales of justice that hang outside of the Supreme Court.
Felicia Benson, Polo Salon & Spa's principle stylist and colorist, blends more than 20 years of salon experience into her professionalism and attention to detail. Her salon's trained staff wields an arsenal of L'Oréal Professionnel hair colors as well as the new L'Oréal INOA, a non-ammonia product available exclusively at certified salons. In addition to color, the staff members help clients reimagine their looks with precision cuts for men, women, and children, anti-aging facials, and artificial and natural nail services.
The scents of freshly baked pastries in the morning and the aroma of hors d'oeuvres in the evening waft through the salon, and complimentary beverages such as wine further please the senses, unlike if humans could smell the scent of losing their keys.
Boca Tanning Club salons bronze clients with the help of super tanning beds and booths, as well as UV-free VersaSpa spray-tanning booths. Clients walk past the painted vines, rocks, and rainforest-themed decor before stepping into the spray-tanning booths, which gild limbs in 60 seconds, or into a super bed, which caramelizes skin in less time than a traditional bed. In private rooms, technicians wielding airbrush systems custom shade and contour muscles while de-emphasizing vestigial tails.
After nearly 20 years of experience as a medical aesthetician and laser specialist, Designer Skin of the Palm Beaches owner Karin Ellis left her post working alongside trusted plastic surgeons to open up her own skin boutique. Today she pays forward everything she's learned to her clients, who reap the benefits of her expertise and that of her professional team. Together, the aestheticians help their clients' skin appear smoother and tighter, diminishing fine lines without surgery. In its place, they use laser technology to erase sunspots and old scars, or chemical peels to reveal younger-looking skin.
Fluctuations in stress levels and health often go often hand in hand, and addressing one without the other can mask but not eliminate problems. Knowing this, the staff of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Absolute Wellness Spa works to cultivate a tranquil environment in which relaxing treatments address both bodily and mental health at the same time. Those treatments, which include massages, healing acupuncture, and mud wraps, draw on Western medical practices and Eastern philosophy to better approach wellness issues from a variety of angles. In the studio, quiet music plays to relax patrons, and fountains burble softly like a scuba diver trying to tell a secret.
The individual elegance cultivated through Blown Away Salon & Spa’s hair, nail, skin, and waxing services is an extension of the salon’s ambiance. Soft colors saturate the walls, and cobblestone patterns crawl up the wall next to the long row of styling stations. The welcoming space is pervaded by a well-maintained cleanliness.
