Though the bright colors and mod furniture of South Beach Tanning’s numerous salons may tempt clients to kick back for hours, that’s not the staff’s goal. Instead, they strive to provide swift, hassle-free tans that get clients out the door quickly to enjoy the day. Each of the chain’s salons boasts a floor plan that is twice as large as the average tanning salon, which increases the likelihood that a bed will be free and therefore reduces annoying wait times. Guests can choose from five tiers of UV beds, whose successive levels beget increased bulb output and more amenities to imbue swifter, more comfortable tans. For a UV-free glow, customers can opt to hop in the salon’s automated VersaSpa booths, which guide jets of pigmented formula from head to toe in only 46 seconds to grant a look as summery as boat sails composed of stitched-together bikinis.
The stylists at Salon Couture flatter faces with haircuts that are tailored to each client's features and lifestyle. Their highlights add fun streaks or extra dimension to 'dos, and their ammonia-free color treatments mask grays. Other services include professional Brazilian keratin treatments that leave frizzy locks tamed for weeks on end, and Remy hair extensions that were approved Rapunzel herself.
At Golden Glow, licensed aesthetician Debanie Golden combats all kinds of skincare concerns with a long list of rejuvenating facial treatments, including acne, anti-aging, and back facials. Using Dermalogica and Obagi-C Rx products, she customizes each treatment to the needs of her clients. For instance, she can add a chemical peel or microdermabrasion to any facial to enhance its exfoliating effects.
Beautifiers at 2 Dye 4 Salon and Spa (formerly Salon Serenity) dole out a cut and style, a hot-stone massage, or permanent eyeliner to patrons in a salon filled with black chairs and track lighting. The always-changing menu of services includes hair, nail, skin, massage, and permanent-makeup services.
Dr. William Meadows strives to helps patients live as the healthiest, happiest versions of themselves. The doctor curates a list of services that better the body in terms of both health and beauty. After dropping pounds with a weight-management program or a hormone-replacement treatment, patients can turn to microdermabrasion, dermal fillers, or photofacials to revive the skin without having to perform CPR on every pore. Technicians also operate a variety of laser-based technologies that can clear up complexions, blast away unwanted hair, or help eliminate veins on the legs or face.
