Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
By becoming the first female in Ohio to complete a three-year fellowship in major reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, Dr. Molly Judge took the first steps toward the distinguished podiatric career she pursues today. Dr. Judge holds the Wally Wiseman Award for Surgical Excellence, which she earned by designing personalized care for patients with sports injuries, toe pain, and diabetic foot infections and for clowns with inadequately comical shoe sizes. Dr. Judge regularly publishes articles regarding podiatry, with 20 already in circulation, and she serves as a peer reviewer for the Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery and as a columnist for Healthy Living News, a northwest Ohio circular.
Open until 10 p.m. Monday–Thursday, TanQuest Sun Spas can bronze bodies after sunset with Mystic Tan spray booths and UV-emitting capsules from Ergoline and Soltron. Warm air flows through the Mystic HD booth as its automatic airbrushes spritz bronzer that lasts up to one week. UV beds cradle limbs on Bodyform rests and pipe in tunes via on-board sound systems, and upright UV booths are modeled after the one the sun sets up to sell its golden kisses. To heighten the effect of a tan, the staff lightens teeth to a brilliant shade of white and collects limited-edition Designer Skin lotions and Swedish Beauty accelerators in their boutique.
With a nod to the environment, the stylists at Creative Hair Design strive to pull from natural products when snipping or coloring tresses.

Though one seldom sees the spinning red-and-white pole out front any more, barbershops still thrive in America?Sport Clips owns and operates more than 1,000 hair cutteries that cater specifically to men and boys. Inside each location, stylists buzz clippers, massage shoulders and scalps, and wrap faces in hot towels. They happily keep up friendly conversation, but also cater to customers who'd prefer to quietly watch a game on one of their flatscreen TVs.
In addition to maintaining a man-friendly atmosphere, each stylist can perform Sport Clips' signature service, the MVP Experience. They kick off the dude-pampering with a scalp massage that incorporates a Tea Tree shampoo treatment. Then, they wrap their client's face in a hot, steamed towel?a relaxing sensation that's good for the skin. They couple the towel wrap with a quick neck and shoulder massage, completing the whole service in about 20 minutes, giving guys plenty of time to return to chopping logs with their bare hands.
