Planet Beach treats its clientele the right blend of beauty and relaxation. Visitors might relax atop a hydro-massage table, which uses heated water jets to soothe tense muscles. They can then get sun-kissed skin inside sunless tanning booths or opt for a luminous facial, which uses a bar of light to tighten and firm skin. Planet Beach also hosts Facial Fridays. During this weekly event, certified consultants design skincare regimens catered to each client's skin type.
For more than 25 years, the friendly and knowledgeable staffs at seven locally owned Maui Beach Tanning locations have been helping clients deepen their skin tone and break through tanning plateaus. Their constantly updated selection of equipment includes internally cooled Tan America UV beds that emanate music from within. Certified spray-tan technicians use sugar-based Norvell formulas to customize hues that last for up to seven days, and the California Tan AutoBronzer booth leaves skin glowing in a matter of minutes. The crew can also recommend which of more than 40 tanning lotions will best suit each customer's skin.
Specializing in, as they put it, "sexy swimwear for the uninhibited," the designers at Eyecandy Bikinis aim to create eye-catching bathing suits that celebrate the female form. Focusing on fashion-forward styles, their creations often comprise metallic fabrics and jeweled accents. In addition to peddling jewelry and cover-ups, the boutique also provides airbrush spray-tanning services to prep bodies for bikini season and keep them glowing in the cooler months.
Halloween Costume Warehouse outfits revelers in spooky, adorable, or sassy duds for men, women, kids, and infants.

Young trick-or-treat warriors can bravely battle terrifying doorsteps in the guise of Captain America complete with a shiny blue jumpsuit and mask ($19.99), or they can charm ghouls in a frilly red Elmo dress ($24.99). A wide selection of adult attire runs the gamut from alluring burlesque ensembles to hair-raising costumes of high-school trigonometry teachers.
Tantastic's advanced equipment and extensive selection of lotions help clients build their ideal shade. The standup Sundome booth bronzes limbs without ever touching them, and the traditional Starpower bed has clients in and out in 12 minutes. Spray-tan technicians also stand ready to gild bodies a custom hue in a matter of minutes.
Clients can select one of Tantastic’s various lotions, including those from Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold, or have staffers custom order lotion to ensure they get the best product for their skin. Convenient lotion-storage space eliminates the need for clients to carry their lotions to and from the salon or conceal them in a hole in a nearby lawn.
Kist by Mist’s certified tanning consultants and state-of-the-art cocoons of sunshine work to keep body sheaths aglow and vitamin D levels in check no matter what meteorological mood swings the weather undergoes. The UV package includes five skin-tintings of up to 12 minutes apiece in a level 3 Sun Ergoline bed, plus a bottle of lotion with bronzer. Guests can also opt for the UV-free VersaSpa kit, which adds pop to pigment with two automated airbrush sessions complete with a spray primer, a bronzing spray, and an anti-aging moisturizer that keeps skin hydrated and young-looking without cryogenic contraptions or flux capacitors. Or choose the UV-free MyMyst package, which includes two sessions in a voice-guided spray booth that gingerly sluices edifices with light, medium, or dark solutions. MyMyst also spritzes an enhancer to balance pH levels and increase tan lifespan, as well as a finishing coat of scent to ensure clients smell more pleasing than a freshly plucked new car. Both of these UV-free kits help protect the newly bioluminescent with a take-home bottle of Ultimate Tan Extender and helpful advice for rejecting the potential onslaught of love-struck fireflies.
