Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.

Ultra Tan Louisville helps skin retain a sunny disposition year-round through Mystic spray tanning and a variety of UV booths. Lounge under the cerulean lights of a regular UV bed, or garner glow from the VHR standup booth, which simulates the deep, blended tones normally acquired through outdoor activities or by sleeping under a high-wattage reading light. Clients can bronze bods in a Mega bed with or without a facial-tanning strip or laze under the dazzling purple bulbs of a Matrix high-pressure bed. For the bulb-shy, UV-free Mystic booths spritz skin with one of four tanning solutions that impart a natural-looking color, which can last up to 10 days if properly maintained with take-home products or daily visits to the neighborhood wishing well.
