Considering they're charged with maintaining an extensive array of equipment across 15 locations, it's a good thing each state-certified member of the SunsUp Tanning Centers team commits to at least 10 hours of update training each week. The constant training prepares the specialists for working with the centers' 10 types of standup and lay-down UV beds as well as with sunless Mystic Tan and VersaSpa booths. In addition to tanning, SunsUp offers the Fit body wrap, an infrared heat therapy designed to detoxify and slim the body. Patrons can adjust the wrap's four independent heat zones in 1-degree increments up to 130 degrees or until their body parts start to whistle.
Urban Colorz Salon's team of stylists brings out the best in every type of hair, whipping up face-flattering looks for both men and women in a welcoming studio. Your mane’s day at the spa begins as an experienced snipper clips tresses into shape, emphasizing beloved facial features and deemphasizing less beloved features, such as beauty marks bearing an uncanny resemblance to Alexander Hamilton.
With more than 20 locations in the greater Portland metro area and more throughout Washington, Tan Republic outfits their salons with sleek, modern designs and earth-toned walls, filling private tanning rooms with a suite of melanin-conjuring machines.

When the stylists at Hair Candy Salon & Spa look at a head of hair, they see nothing but stylish possibilities. Depending on the client, they might add dimension with partial highlights, lengthen hair with extensions, or use keratin treatments to tame stubborn frizz and curls. Once they've transformed manes, the beauty experts turn their attention to the rest of the body. They wax unwanted hair and smooth skin with more than a dozen facial treatments, including a therapeutic pumpkin mask with the same nutrients that keep jack-o'-lanterns from ever getting pimples. In addition to these services, the staff uses FDA-approved lasers to prevent and reverse hair loss.
East Side and West Side Athletic Clubs offer pampering for all bodies, ages, and fitness types with facilities packed with swimming pools, racquetball courts, childcare centers, and cardio decks.

In addition to workout amenities, guests can take advantage of bountiful spa and relaxation services including massages, acupuncture, and a full-service hair salon. Each of the three locations has its own personality and offerings. See the full list for each location here.
Nail tech Michelle Long makes sure her clients unwind during her spa pedicures as their feet enjoy an exfoliating scrub, mask, and a massage that radiates relaxation through the entire body.

Long also moves her focus upward for facial waxing, leaving lip, chin, and browlines clean and smooth.
