At X-Treme Tanning's two locations, cutting-edge tanning booths darken skintone. During a 12-minute session in the Silver Bullet, high-powered air conditioning sweeps over the body, dampening the heat that brims from facial and shoulder lamps. Available at the Thornwood location, the I Bed takes tanning to a new level: In addition to air conditioning and facial lamps, the lay-down bed effuses aromatic scents and links with iPods. Among stand-up booths, the Super Sonic ranks as the most powerful option—it has a 7-minute max and an upgraded sound system, which means that tanners can add a new level of color after listening to Bohemian Rhapsody just 1.183 times.
At Little Tor Skin Care Studio, a team of aestheticians keeps its clientele’s skin looking youthful with a range of treatments. Five standard facials are designed to rejuvenate a variety of skin types, and custom facials employ skin analysis to ensure faces receive the ideal levels of cleansing and moisture. Other services include waxing, reflexology, and aromatherapy.

Tara Colavecchio, the owner of Dragonfly Hair Studio, has a star-studded resume that including tending to the locks of Claudia Schiffer, Rosie O’Donnell, Sigourney Weaver, and Cindy Crawford.

They also work strands into eye-catching updo’s for weddings and straighten locks using a formaldehyde-free formula.
If humans were shaped like perfect rectangles, tanning would be easy. But since human bodies consist of various curves and nooks, the team at Tropical Lights Tanning Salon has acquired ergonomic tanning beds with built-in facial bulbs. Custom airbrush tans also adapt to body shapes, with expert technicians bronzing clients evenly and naturally.
