At Oak Tan, seven types of tanning beds coax out sun-kissed color. Some stave off sweat with cooling systems; others bronze cheeks with facial lamps. Even the salon's basic bed, Tropical, boasts 31 body lamps and 10 facial lamps. Those who want to avoid UV rays completely can step into the Mystic Tan booth for a spray tan. With all these options, customers aren't left to choose one on their own or even with a roll of an eight-sided dice. Instead, the staff has been specially trained to guide customers to the optimal tanning method for their skin type and color.
To put it simply—and in their own words––the staff at Aric Ashely Salon are in the business of making people look and feel their best. To that end, they stock the salon's shelves with a full line of Redken styling products to aid them in every cut, corrective-color service, and elegant updo. For a transformation that’s truly head to toe, aestheticians deploy wax to whisk away fuzz from lip to leg and render faces flawless with airbrush makeup.
The skin is the body's largest organ, and also the most visible; for that reason, the skin's condition can make or break a person's appearance. Dr. Jerry K. Brunsoman and licensed aesthetician Christy Fischer work in tandem at Ideal Skin Laser Rejuvenation Center to perform med-spa services that help improve clients' appearances. Their chemical peels diminish the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and scarring. The DiamondTome microdermabrasion treatments they perform, meanwhile, dislodge dead skin cells without the use of loose crystals or high-powered fans that make cheeks flap like seals on a trampoline. Brunsoman and Fischer also harness the power of BroadBand Light to improve complexions and stimulate collagen production during photofacials and acne treatments, and their SkinTyte therapy restores elasticity and a youthful tightness to visages. Ideal Skin Laser Rejuvenation Center purveys SkinMedica products, so patients can keep skin in mint condition at home.

Aesthetician Shelley Sharp has seen a multitude of skin issues in her career, which has ranged from managing the spa at The Grand Hotel to being named the official aesthetician for the Miss Minnesota and Mrs. Iowa pageants. Shelley now puts her skincare knowledge to work at her namesake spa, tucked within the Lifespan Clinic. Five facials for women and men target dehydrated, acneic, and aging skin types, while exfoliating microdermabrasion and AHA chemical peels foster complexions and keep faces smooth enough to glide right down any bowling lanes they come into contact with. Clients can doll up eyes with a lash-tinting service and whisk away stray strands with facial waxing.
Special Effects Salon's expert aestheticians rejuvenate skin with a roster of relaxing services and an arsenal of all-natural Aveda products as patients sip on complimentary Aveda Comforting tea or antioxidant-rich Monavie juice. Specialists gently shape and file nails and cuticles on glove fillers and tapping toes as aromatic products fill the air with appealing scents reminiscent of jungle flowers and the rare orchid that blooms only on the roof of a 24-hour Denny's.
